LaBarca, who was a frequent guest at Westport’s Italian Festival over the years while at the Westport and Bridgeport stations, said he loved his fans dearly and was sorry he did not get a chance to tell them goodbye.

“My fans were family,” he told News-12 Connecticut at his Stratford home. “They were brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, and I’m going to miss them.”

Ex-Beatle Paul McCartney is among the 200 or so invited guests to Weinstein’s estate on Beachside Avenue for what some have called New York society’s wedding of the year.

Gossip columnists have said other guests include Renee Zellweger, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Kidman, Rupert Murdoch, Jann Wenner, Ron Perelman, and director Anthony Minghella.

Westport officials last month granted a permit to erect tents on the property for the event and a special permit has been issued authorizing fireworks to be launched from a barge in Long Island Sound.

Acetylene and Propane Tanks Found in Burning Car

WestportNow.com Image
Westport firefighters found more than they anticipated when they responded to a car fire this morning on I-95 between Exits 18 and 17 in Westport. After putting out a fire in the rear driver’s side wheel well of a Chevy Tahoe SUV, they found an acetylene tank and two small propane tanks in the passenger compartment. They cooled the tanks and removed them from the vehicle to minimize the chance for a secondary explosion, according to Assistant Chief William Dingee. He reminded residents to always transport flammable liquids according to manufacturer’s instructions and alert firefighters to their presence in vehicles involved in a fire.

Westport First Selectman Gordon Joseloff tonight presented Planning and Zoning Commissioner Ellie Lowenstein with a length of service award from the Connecticut Federation of Planning and Zoning Agencies. Joseloff said the award, presented at the P&Z meeting, was much more than recognition of her 12 years of having sat through meetings, including 10 years as chair. “Westport would not be the community it is today without Ellie Lowenstein,” he said. He praised her for her devotion and commitment to overseeing development and enforcement of zoning regulations over the years that have made Westport one of most desirable places to live in the nation.
