Staples Junior Takes Home $1,000 Scholarship

Staples Junior Naveen Murali competed today in the regional finals in Massachusetts of the Siemens Competition in Math, Science, and Technology, one of the nation’s most prestigious science competitions.

However, at the end of the day at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), he and his two teammates from New York and California did not advance into the finals. Instead, they took home a $1,000 scholarship each and $2,000 for their high schools.

Naveen and his teammates have been working with a drug that targets cancer cells and how to use a polymer to thermally regulate the drug in the body.

Three years ago, Naveen’s brother Vikas also competed in the Siemens competition. (See WestportNow Nov. 1, 2005)

Train Station Flu Shots Set for Thursday as Part of Drill

The Westport Weston Health District will conduct a flu vaccination clinic on Thursday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Westport’s Saugatuck train station that will also serve as a drill by area health authorities to rapidly inoculate large numbers of train travelers.

The clinic will be located on the New Haven-bound side. Those planning to attend may complete their registration form ahead of time by downloading a copy of the flu vaccination consent form from the Westport Weston Health District Web site.

The cost is $35, but there is no cost to Medicare Part B participants who must bring their Medicare cards for billing purposes. Checks made out to WWHD or cash payments will be accepted.

The event is also serving as a drill testing the capacity of the region’s public health system to collaboratively work across town boundaries to rapidly dispense medicine in a coordinated effort to the tens of thousands who commute via train each day.

Helen Martin Block Resigns from P&Z

WestportNow.com Image
Helen Martin Block (c), a Republican member of Westport’s Planning and Zoning Commission, announced her resignation at Thursday night’s meeting. Martin Block, seen here with fellow members Ellie Lowenstein and Bruce Kasanoff during the Oct. 23 session which approved the Y’s Mahackeno application, said it was that 5-2 vote—in which she was one of the two members opposed—and other reasons that prompted her resignation. “The outcomes of some applications during my second term seem to be motivated by dynamics in opposition to the spirit of P&Z regulations and the common sense language of those regulations,” she said. Martin Block. who was first elected in 2003 and re-elected last year, added: “An arrogant philosophy pervades that appears to support the weakening if not dismissal of these regulations.” Helen Martin Block resignation letter (PDF) (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
