“The coolers, tiled floors, overhead and track lighting, and HVAC have been installed, and the deli department cases are coming in this week,” said Jay Kowalsky, president of Kowalsky Real Estate, the family-owned company of the longtime Westport Kowalsky family.

He said that the opening day festivities at 605 Post Road East will include a live music quartet and outdoor grills to prepare food samplings. 

“We’re resurfacing the parking lot, we’ll have new lighting and are planting islands with the same theme as seen on the Post Road island entrance to the Sherwood Connector,” he said.

Himes: Israel Can “Degrade” Iran’s Nuclear Capability

WestportNow.com Image
Congressman Jim Himes (D-4), who returned Sunday from a visit to Israel, told a Westport audience today that the Israeli officials told him that they have “the ability to degrade” Iran’s nuclear capability but not eliminate it. At a gathering at the Conservative Synagogue, one of a series of meetings with Jewish congregations, Himes said that such a military option should only be used as a last resort. A number of attendees pressed Himes on his position on health care reform. After answering several questions and running out of time, he said he would hold a Town Hall meeting Sept. 2 at 6:30 p.m. in the Norwalk City Hall Community Room where the subject will be the only topic.
