Gunman Robs Westport Liquor Store

A man with a handgun robbed a Westport liquor store today and fled with an undetermined amount of cash, police said.

The robbery occurred at International Liquor, 732 Post Road East, next to Calise’s Food Market, near the intersection of Hillspoint Road.

The robber entered the store shortly after 7 p.m., showed his weapon, and told the employee to give him all the money, which he did, said Lt. Leonard Rummo.

The robber fled the store on foot heading westbound, and a K-9 unit was unable to pick up a trail, he said. Anyone with information is asked to call the Detective Bureau at (203)341-6000.

Beaver Deceiver: Leveling a Westport Pond

Westporters took action today to thwart some busy beavers, sometimes called the planet’s second-best engineers.WestportNow.com Image

A team from Earthplace, The Nature Discovery Center, installed a pond leveling system at a beaver dam on Poplar Plains Brook inside the sprawling Partrick Wetlands in northwest Westport.

The system was needed because the beavers had built a dam that had grown to 80 feet wide and 4 feet tall, creating a pond well over 5 acres in size.

“There was a need to reduce the size of the pond,” said John Horkel, Earthplace director.

Winds Pick Up, Scattered Power Outages Reported

Winds generated by the remnants of Hurricane Noel picked up along Westport’s coast today as Connecticut Light and Power Company reported brief scattered power outages in town.

The National Weather Service issued a high winds advisory and a coastal flood advisory for Westport and portions of the tri-state area. Eastern Connecticut and Cape Cod were expected to see the highest winds.

Local weather stations reported winds gusting to 39 miles per hour this afternoon and forecasters predicted gusts may reach 45-55 later in the day. They said winds could be strong enough to whip up tides along Long Island Sound by as much as 2-1/2 feet above normal, causing minor flooding.

At 9 a.m., CL&P reported 19 Westport customers were without power, but an hour later it said all power had been restored.

First Power Line Conduits Installed Under Saugatuck

WestportNow.com Image
Workers for Connecticut Light and Power Company today completed installing the first conduits under the Saugatuck River in Westport that will eventually carry the new Middletown-to-Norwalk high voltage power line. The critical operation involved assembling and pulling 1,600 feet of conduit pipes from the west side of the river at Lincoln Street to the east side at Imperial Avenue. The work, which had to be done without stopping, began Thursday morning, a day later than originally announced, and was completed by mid-day today. Workers will soon begin drilling a second bore hole under the river to carry a second set of conduit pipes. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
