Catholic Church Releases Priest Sex Allegation Documents

UPDATE (adds additional names) At least five priests who served in Westport are cited in documents released today by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bridgeport as it complied with a court order to disclose documentation on how it handled allegations of sexual abuse against its clergymen.

The diocese turned over thousands of pages to Waterbury Superior Court officials and to the lawyers of four newspapers that had filed suit to force release of the documents. Their release ended a seven-year legal battle to keep them private.

The five priests who served in Westport named in the documents, which cover a period going back more than 40 years, include Martin J. Federici, picked up by Westport police in 1968 for allegedly molesting a boy in his car. He served at Westport’s Assumption Church from 1968 to 1970.

The others were Joseph Gorecki, who served at Assumption in 1974; Albert McGoldrick, who served at Assumption in 1988; Charles W. Stubbs, who served as Assumption from 1964 to 1967, and Vincent Veich, who served at Assumption from 1978 to 1984.

Westport Teacher in Film Premiere Tonight

A Westport middle school teacher is appearing in tonight’s premiere in Fairfield of “Welcome to Jensen’s Part One,” an entirely improvised film with no script.

Kerstin Warner, who has been teaching the gifted program at Bedford Middle School since 2000, is among local actors appearing in the debut feature film by filmmaker Tony Pertesis. It will be shown at 7:30 p.m. at the Community Theatre, 1424 Post Road, and is open to the public.

The film follows a little girl as she searches for her recently deceased parents in Jensen’s Cemetery. Her parents are there, along with many colorful characters who are marking time in purgatory and interact in surprising, comical and sometimes alarming ways. 

How Warner—a 10-year Westport resident and Vassar fine arts graduate with a Masters in special education from Bank Street College—came to appear in the film is an improv story in itself.

AG Cites Westport CVS Store as Selling Outdated Products

The CVS store on Westport’s Post Road East was among 20 CVS Connecticut stores cited today in allegations by Attorney General Richard Blumenthal as stocking and selling expired food and nonprescription drugs.WestportNow.com Image

“CVS’ failure to properly police and supervise its shelves—allowing out- of-date medicine and potentially rotten food to remain—is unconscionable and unacceptable,” Blumenthal said in a news release announcing a lawsuit against Rhode Island-based CVS Caremark Corp.

“Especially appalling is the sale of expired baby formula—which loses nutrients over time—robbing infants of vital nourishment.”

CVS became aware of the specific allegations only today, according to a statement issued by the company.

Slimmed Down First Night Set for New Year’s Eve

Now that Thanksgiving is over, thoughts turn to the end-of-year holidays and New Year’s Eve—and yes, there will be a First Night Westport. But it will be a slimmed down version.WestportNow.com Image

“This year we were faced with economic challenges that had threatened the event,” wrote Barbara Pearson-Rac, First Night president, on the First Night Web site.

“But, the good news is, we have met the challenge and we are planning a New Year’s Eve party that everyone should enjoy.”

This year’s First Night, with one exception, will end at 9 p.m. with a gala fireworks display over the Saugatuck River in Westport’s center. The exception is a teen “Battle of the Bands” at Toquet Hall, the teen center, which will go to 11:30 p.m.

WestportNow.com Image
The third oldest house in Westport, built in 1710, is for sale, and today brokers held an open house at the property at 38 Compo Road North. The 1-1/4 story antique house has 1,427 square feet and is situated on a one-acre property. According to Sotheby’s brokers Jean Studwell and James Love Lee, about 40 people toured the house and property—most just looking not buying and many of them owners of houses built in the 19th and 18th century. “The goal today was achieved—to get visibility for this historic property with the hope that it will not be demolished,” said Lee. Asking price is $749,000. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
