Close Call

WestportNow.com Image
Three persons in a BMW were able to get out of their car without firefighter help early today after it slid under a tractor-trailer in the northbound lanes of I-95 between Exits 18 in Westport and 19 in Fairfield, according to Westport firefighters. They were evaluated by firefighters and paramedics from Westport EMS and American Medical Response and were transported to Bridgeport Hospital. Firefighters said I-95 was shut down while the car, wedged under the front of the rear wheels, was pulled out by a wrecker after the 12:15 a.m. crash. State Police said the driver of the car, traveling north in the left lane, apparently lost control, causing the car to plow under the tractor-trailer that was in the center lane.

Solving One Big Family’s Dysfunction: It’s Up to You

By Ina B. Chadwick

Special to WestportNow

At a Westport Country Playhouse preview of its current production, “Children” by A.R. Gurney, an older audience was primed for disappointment.

It fought the impulse to enjoy the play, a poignant family drama which also is a metaphor for our own community’s 2009 artistic “family” difficulties. 

Set on a July Fourth weekend on an island resort, “Children” features a formidable WASP family confronting its identity dictated by reenactments of social traditions.

The country club regimens, sibling tennis matches, and cocktail hour conversations escalate until the family explodes into the future with old truths and scary, yet necessary current realities.

First CT Flu Death Reported; Five More Cases in Westport

A New Haven County resident diagnosed with the novel H1N1 (swine flu) virus has died, the Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH) said today. It was the state’s first death linked to infection with the virus.

The DPH today also reported an additional confirmed 40 cases of H1N1 in the state, including five in Westport, bringing the town’s total to nine.

The DPH said the fatality was a New Haven County resident over the age of 50 who “had underlying risk factors that put this person at higher risk for complications of influenza.  The individual died recently after a short hospitalization.”

“Our hearts go out to this person’s family and friends,” said DPH Commissioner J. Robert Galvin.

WestportNow.com Image
Employees of the Patagonia sportswear store at Westport’s 87 Post Road East were rewarded with a Dahon folding bike for their first place ranking of all 25 Patagonia stores across the country for their excellence in the company’s bike week last month. All 14 store employees racked up 562 miles commuting on bikes. Store manager Nate Paulson (not in photo) commuted from White Plains to Westport by bike on four days that week, a distance of 37 miles each way. Louis Pietig of Westport, a member of the store’s management, said, “We encourage our employees to bike to work – and many are doing that.”  The folding bike award was presented by Westporter Steve Cuomo, U.S. marketing manager for the Dahon Company. Pictured are (l-r) Cuomo and Patagonia employees Dave Hames of Weston, Rilke Klingstorn of Greenwich, and Pietig. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

WestportNow Teardown of the Day: 4 Sunny Lane

WestportNow.com Image
A request for a permit is in process to demolish the house at 4 Sunny Lane. Built in 1928, the two-story colonial has 2,256-square feet and is situated on a 1.18-acre property. The house is owned by the Westport Weston Family Y and located along the entrance to the Camp Mahackeno site, the future location of the Family Y. Because the house was built more than 50 years ago, the application will be reviewed by the Historic District Commission at its June 9 meeting. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
