Shays Holds Community Meeting Today

Congressman Christopher Shays will hold a community meeting today in Westport.

The 2 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. event at the Westport Center for Senior Activities, 22 Imperial Ave., is one of a series of 17 community meetings in the 4th Congressional District this weekend and next.

“In the next few weeks, I will hold another series of community meetings in each town of the 4th Congressional District,” Shays said in a statement announcing the sessions.

“Community meetings are a wonderful opportunity for me to hear the views of 4th District residents on issues that affect our district, state and nation. I hope residents will be able to set aside some time to attend one of these meetings to share their thoughts, questions and concerns.”

Westport Man Indicted on Insider Trading, Fraud Charges

John N. Milne: Westporter denies allegations. File photo

John N. Milne, 48, a Canadian citizen living on Maple Avenue South in Westport, used insider information when he sold 850,000 shares of United Rentals stock and made more than $2 million, according to federal prosecutors.

They also said he deceived investors and filed bogus documents with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to inflate the company’s stock price and personally benefit in an alleged conspiracy from 2000 to 2005.

Milne was arraigned in front of U.S. Magistrate Judge Joan G. Margolis and was released on $1 million bond and ordered to surrender his passport, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. He was indicted Thursday on an eight-count indictment by a federal grand jury.

In Style vs. Senile

WestportNow.com Image
School spirits were high and the cheering was loud at the Staples High School gymnasium tonight as Coleytown Middle School held its annual student-faculty basketball game. It was the eighth grade boys and girls “In Style” team (pictured above) against the “Senile” faculty team, playing to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The score was close with the students leading much of the time. While a last minute faculty bucket gave their team the win by two points, there were really no losers. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Lynn U.
