The threat of rain tonight forced the Levitt Pavilion’s final concert of the season indoors. The Fairfield Counts performed at Westport’s Saugatuck Elementary School—but that did not stop some people from making their way into the Levitt grounds anyway to picnic.

Talking Transportation: Crunch Time for Metro-North

By Jim Cameron

Special to WestportNow

Fresh and rested from their summer vacations, commuters are in for a rude surprise when they board Metro-North trains again: more riders, more overcrowding and more problems finding a seat.

talkingtransportation250.jpg

Yes, better times are ahead. The new M8 cars are being designed and built, but it won’t be until August 2009 that even a prototype for the new cars is delivered for testing. So figure on 2010 before we commuters will actually ride in one.

Meantime, ridership on Metro-North continues to climb. It’s up 5 percent again this year with no sign of it leveling off anytime soon given gas prices. And those additional passengers are scrambling for seats on a dwindling number of rail cars.

Recent reports from Metro-North show only eight trains out of 10 with enough cars, down from nine trains out of 10 last summer.

Shays: Surge Working in Iraq But Withdrawal Timeline Needed

WestportNow.com Image
Rep. Christopher Shays, R-4, told the Westport Sunrise Rotary Club today that “the surge is working” in Iraq but “what is missing is the political piece.” He said the United States needs a timeline to disengage in Iraq but one that does not “turn over” the country to the Iranians. He also predicted that “the fear of Iran is going to push the Arab community closer to Israel.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Larry Untermeyer for WestportNow.com
