Firefighters Quickly Douse Fire in Attic

WestportNow.com Image
Westport firefighters early today quickly extinguished a small fire in a bathroom ventilation fan in the attic of a home at 269 Sturges Highway. The occupants were alerted by a smoke detector that sent an alarm signal that dispatched firefighters to the residence. On arrival, they saw smoke coming from the gable end vents in the attic. A thermal imaging camera helped track down the source of the fire that had spread to some insulation and PVC piping (inset) that discharged to the roof, said Assistant Chief William Dingee. He reminded residents to install smoke detectors on every level of their house and check them on a regular basis. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photos

Saugatuck River Photos Draw Crowd

WestportNow.com Image
More than 120 people braved inclement weather conditions tonight to enjoy the opening reception at the Westport Public Library for the exhibit of photographs by Tom Kretsch (l) featuring the many aspects of the Saugatuck River. Introduced by artist Howard Munce (c, leaning on book case,), Kretsch explained how he started photographing the river in response to a friend’s magazine spread proposal. The magazine article never materialized, but Kretsch’s interest in the Saugatuck was aroused and he began to explore the ever-changing river under various light conditions throughout the seasons of the year. The result is the photo display which runs through July. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Larry Untermeyer for WestportNow.com

The economy has contributed to a sharp increase in the number of students at Westport’s Staples High School seeking financial aid from the Staples Tuition Grants program, a program official told the group’s annual awards night tonight.

Ted Sullivan, co-chair of the grants committee, said the difficult economic climate resulted in 106 grant applications this year compared to last year’s 80.

At the meeting, the names were announced of the recipients of the 77 grants awarded this year—to 24 Staples seniors and 53 Staples alumni. 

Despite the endowment funds having decreased by more than 11 percent, there were sufficient funds raised this year to allow the committee to award $195,000 in grants—similar to the amount distributed a year ago, Sullivan said.

Economic Briefing: Tough Times for Old and Young

WestportNow.com Image
Westporter Win Allen, author of “Don’t Get Mad, Get Rich,” told a Westport Barnes & Noble audience tonight that because of advanced age, many older Americans can never recover from recent financial losses. He said young people trying to enter the job market will find fewer openings because older people are not leaving their jobs. A Fulbright scholar and former Xerox Corp. executive, Allen, who earned his Ph.D from Fordham University, is also an accomplished real estate investor, financial adviser and business entrepreneur.
