Westporter Sybil Steinberg (l.) goes over her list of recommended books with Julie Belaga of Westport after a talk today at the Westport Public Library. Steinberg,a former editor at Publisher’s Weekly, reviewed more than 50 books. She also used the occasion to lament the dwindling number of book reviews in newspapers. “It is a very sad time for the reader of book reviews in the important newspapers in the country,” she sad. “Many are stopping the book review sections and firing the staff to save money.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Phyllis Groner for WestportNow.com

Edna J. Yergin: Recorded RTM history for 18 years. (Pictured at retirement party) WN file photo
UPDATE Edna J. Yergin, secretary to Westport’s Representative Town Meeting (RTM) for almost two decades until her retirement in 2002, died Wednesday at her Westport home after a lengthy illness. She was 81.

Yergin was the sixth secretary of Westport’s legislative body and her 18 and a half years beginning in 1983 made her the longest to serve in that position. In the RTM’s 60-year history, only four members have served longer than Yergin’s tenure as secretary.

In a commendation read at Yergin’s last meeting on June 4, 2002, First Selectwoman Diane Goss Farrell noted that during her time serving the RTM, she had missed only three meetings.

“Assuming an average of 14 meetings per year, Edna has recorded and transcribed approximately 262 sets of minutes—an incredible number,” Farrell said.

Traffic Study Requested for Post Road East Crosswalk

WestportNow.com Image
The Westport Board of Selectmen, acting in its capacity as the town’s Traffic Authority, voted today to request the state Department of Transportation to conduct a safety study of a crosswalk in front of 1655 Post Road East (above) where a pedestrian was killed last month. (See WestportNow Dec. 23, 2008) The board held off requesting installation of a pedestrian-activated traffic signal there pending the study. However, the board did request the DOT to approve installation of a pedestrian-activated, solar-powered yellow flashing signal at a crosswalk at Riverside Avenue and Sylvan Lane, site of numerous near-miss pedestrian accidents. If approval is given, funds for the signal would have to be authorized by the town’s funding bodes. A representative of the owner of a nearby office building said the owner would contribute to the cost. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
