Household Hazardous Waste Day Saturday

The Westport Fire Department will host a household hazardous waste (HHW) collection day Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Westport Weston Health District, 180 Bayberry Lane.

HHW is generally defined as a household waste that is toxic, flammable, reactive or corrosive. Common HHW includes oil-based paints, thinners, pool chemicals, pesticides, propane tanks, mercury fever thermometers, gasoline, and cleaning supplies.

Don’t bring latex paint (water-based), used motor oil, wet cell batteries, or ammunition.

Although the federal regulations do not prohibit a homeowner from disposing of hazardous waste in the garbage, HHW collection programs provide an opportunity to manage these wastes in an environmentally safe manner.

Mitch Kurman, Camp Safety Advocate, Dies at 86

Mitch Kurman, a longtime attendee at Westport Town Hall brown bag lunches and an advocate of reforming summer camp safety laws following the death of his son in a 1965 canoe accident, has died. He was 86.

His family said he died Monday in Seattle, where Kurman, a onetime furniture salesman, and his wife, Betty had moved to a year ago. They had been Westport residents more than 40 years.

Kurman’s 15-year-old son David died during a canoe trip in Maine sponsored by the Rochester, N.Y., YMCA. His canoe was in white water when it became swamped. The family said the boy did not have a life jacket and the group was using canoes with flat hulls designed for lakes and not rivers

Kurman was instrumental in passing safety laws in Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, New York and several other states. He served on Connecticut’s Camp Safety Advisory Board.

The Staples boys soccer team tied New Canaan 0-0 today in a defensive battle. New Canaan owned the first half, but the Wreckers came back after intermission to outshoot the Rams 11-3. 

Staples even fired a shot at the final buzzer, but to no avail.

“It was a fair result,” said head coach Dan Woog. “We always have great matches with New Canaan, and today no one got the break that decides a match like this.”

Staples, now 6-2-1, hosts Wilton on Monday. The Columbus Day affair begins at 4:15 p.m.  It will be preceded at 2:30 p.m. by a dedication ceremony for a garden honoring the late Sharon Dobbs, a longtime soccer volunteer, at the base of the Loeffler Field scoreboard.

RTM Committee Looks at Turf Issue

A Representative Town Meeting (RTM) committee tonight heard health concerns expressed about rubber infill used in the town’s four new synthetic turf fields.

The RTM’s Health and Human Services Committee discussed the issue with Sue Jacozzi, director of the Westport Weston Health District, Parks and Recreation Director Stuart McCarthy, and reviewed concerns expressed by two parents who have sought to have play limited or ended on the fields pending further tests. (An earlier version of this story incorrectly said the women were present.)

Also present was a Westport resident, David Brown, a public health toxicologist, who has urged caution in use of the fields.

The two parents, Patricia Taylor and Stacy Prince, recently made a formal “demand” that the Health District end or limit play on the fields. The District rejected the request but said further testing on the fields was warranted. Jacozzi told the committee she is planning a public forum next month on the issue.
