World War II Vet Edward J. “Edyo” Keehan Dies at 84

Edward J. “Edyo” Keehan, a Westport native who went off to World War II at the age of 17, survived battles at sea, and 60 years later fought and won another battle in his hometown—to erect a monument to his fallen comrades, died Saturday at Norwalk Hospital. He was 84.keehan75.jpg

In 2004, he published a book recounting his experiences, “Battle for Honor.” “I hope many people in Westport get a chance to read it,” he said at the time. (See WestportNow Nov. 24, 2004)

Keehan’s book tells of his time aboard two World War II cruisers, how he came home and worked as a truck manager for 18 years, and then retired and went into real estate.

But all the while he was concerned that a World War II monument that once stood outside the old Westport Town Hall on Post Road East was missing.

U.S. Census Bureau Recruiting Westport Workers

The U.S. Census Bureau will hold a session on Tuesday at Westport Town Hall as part of its efforts to recruit applicants for temporary jobs with flexible hours to help ensure the 2010 Census is a success. 

The Bureau’s Bridgeport Local 2010 Census Office will conduct the session at 10 a.m. in the Town Hall auditorium. Applicants are asked to bring a valid U.S. passport, or a driver’s license and birth certificate.

Census takers, also known as enumerators, are needed to conduct in-person interviews with community residents who do not return census questionnaires.  These positions need to be filled by individuals with flexible schedules as work may occur in evenings and on weekends, an announcement said.

Some positions may involve shift work. All temporary census employees must be able to attend training, for which they will be compensated. Most training sessions are held during the day on weekdays. Occasionally, a session may be held in the evening or on weekends.

Honoring Our Heritage: 3 Gorham Ave.

WestportNow.com Image
Grayson Braun and Jamie Walsh are honoring Westport’s heritage by displaying a Westport Historical Society plaque identifying their home at 3 Gorham Ave. as the Joseph Feeney house, which was built in 1930. Feeney, a foreman for Connecticut Light and Power Co., built the house on land acquired from Leonard H. Gault and Edward B. Bradley. The couple said they purchased their home because they loved its character and scale and the look and architectural history of lower Gorham Avenue. Both were key proponents of establishment of the Gorham Avenue Historic District in 2006, working with their neighbors and the Westport Historic District Commission. Braun is now an alternate member of the commission. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Bob Weingarten for WestportNow.com
