Republican House Hopefuls’ Final Debate May 12

In their final debate before the May 21 Republican state nominating convention in Hartford, the five Republican candidates for the 4th U.S. Congressional district will square off Wednesday, May 12, at 7 p.m. in the Westport Town Hall auditorium.

Each is expected to make the case that he is the best to defeat freshman Democratic Congressman Jim Himes whose seat had been held by Republicans for four decades before him.

The candidates include state Sen. Dan Debicella of Shelton, Rob Merkle of Norwalk, Easton First Selectman Tom Herrmann, Rick Torres of Bridgeport and Will Gregory of New Canaan.

“Now more than ever we need a strong Republican to represent Connecticut’s 4th Congressional District,” said Bob Zappi, chairman of the Westport Republican Town Committee, which is hosting the debate.

Tipster Leads to $569 Bank Robbery Suspect

Police identified the suspect as Felix Lopez whose last known address was 158 West Cedar St. in Norwalk. He was charged with robbery and larceny and held on $150,000 bond for a court appearance on Tuesday.

Police said an anonymous telephone tip from someone who saw a police-issued photo of the bank robber on television led them to the suspect. (See WestportNow April 30, 2010)

Investigation determined that Lopez was also wanted on two unrelated rearrest warrants by the Norwalk and Wilton Police Departments, police said.

Green Talk: Generating Savings With Energy Audits

By Marty Yellin

A small investment in a home energy audit can generate significant savings over time. An audit will assess how much energy your home consumes and evaluate measures to make your home more energy efficient.WestportNow.com Image

You can perform a simple energy audit yourself or have a professional energy auditor carry out a more thorough audit.

If you choose to do the audit yourself, there are three main areas to address.

First, consider air leaks and drafts. Reducing drafts alone can save from 5 percent to 30 percent in energy usage.

Talking Transportation: Bar Cars, The NYT and The Truth

By Jim Cameron

Special to WestportNow

In an earlier life I was a journalist. A pretty good one too, winning awards in my time at NBC News and local stations. 

talkingtransportation250.jpg

We used to have a joke in the newsroom about sloppy reporting, commenting that a reporter “should never let the facts get in the way of a good story.”

That rubric came to mind when I first read The New York Times April 20 feature on pending demise of Metro-North’s bar cars.  I had spoken with the reporter,  Michael Grynbaum, about the story. I even sent him to talk to others involved in the efforts to save the last commuter rail bar cars in the United States.

But despite our conversations, he got the story wrong. Very wrong.

Helping a Westporter: the “Before” Picture

WestportNow.com Image
A community service event today made a difference in the lives of a number of Westporters. The Service League of Boys (SLOBs), a parent-son community service club at Staples High School, and the Westport chapter of the National Charity League, a mother-daughter philanthropic organization, joined together for their first annual day of service. At the home of Stascia Reitano, volunteers painted, stained, cleaned up, and did other repair work that transformed her house in one day. This is the “before” picture. See below for the “after” picture. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo

Helping a Westporter: the “After” Picture

WestportNow.com Image
The home of Westporter Stascia Reitano is pictured after volunteers did some painting, cleaning, and repair work in an effort coordinated with Westport ’s Human Services Department. The girls of the National Charity League and the boys of the Service League of Boys (SLOBS) joined forces under organizers Kelly Copeland, Roni Goldberg and Suzanne Kalb. Parents worked alongside children, donating their free time on a summer-like, sunny day to take on strenuous and meticulous work. They also found the time to put an exclamation mark on their handiwork in the form of three potted plant displays. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo
