During his tenure at Hall-Brooke, Fahey was instrumental in the purchase of Hall-Brooke by St. Vincent’s Health Services of Bridgeport, the construction of the new state-of-the-art facility and the affiliation of Hall-Brooke with Columbia University’s College of Physician and Surgeon’s Department of Psychiatry. 

“Steve Fahey has truly built this organization from the ground floor and has been instrumental in positively changing the perception of Hall-Brooke among the behavioral health community,” said Susan L. Davis, president/CEO of St. Vincent’s Health Services. “His contributions will be long remembered and we congratulate and wish him well on his new and exciting opportunity.”

Davis said a national search is underway for a new CEO.  In the meantime, Dr. Stewart Levine, interim medical director and Joyce Platz, director of regulatory compliance and community residential services, will serve as Hall-Brooke’s interim CEOs.

Festival director Gavin Arneth promises it will be “a great opportunity to see what the street offers and to mingle with your neighbors in a calm, friendly atmosphere.” Arneth, president of the merchants’ group, said he hopes Main Street and area restaurants will dazzle sidewalk strollers with their hospitality, charm and finger food treats. Oscar’s, Westport Pizzeria, and other emporiums have delighted sale visitors for the past 15 years.

Car Stop Results in Marijuana Arrest

A car stopped because its driver did not have headlights on during a rain storm resulted in an 18-year-old Westport youth’s arrest today on a marijuana charge, police said.

Timothy Wormser was pulled over on Weston Road and an officer detected a strong odor of marijuana coming from the car, police said.

A police dog trained to detect drugs was utilized at the vehicle and alerted officers to the presence of drugs. The vehicle was searched, and a bag containing suspected marijuana was located under the seat. A half a pound of marijuana was seized from within the vehicle, police said.

Wormser was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to detectives. He was being a held on a $10,000 bond and will be arraigned at Superior Court in Norwalk, police said.

End Near for Italian Festival?

By Ed Kiersh

Festival Italiano, Westport’s 24th annual “Kiss Me, I’m Italian” summer fun fest opening Thursday night, won’t be all scungilli, fried pizza fritta, and dunk-a-cop games this year.

The four days of merriment for adults and youngsters at Luciano Park next to the Saugatuck train station will have a bittersweet edge—a sense of loss that might just lead to the end of this amusement park-like party.

“It’s sad, very sad that this staple of summer life in Westport could be ending after next year,” said Roberta Troy, the organizer of the Westport Sons of Italy-sponsored event.

“Club members are getting up in age, passing on, and the younger generation doesn’t have the time or interest to volunteer. I’m proud of my Italian heritage. I’m sorry to say it, but festivals like this could be a dying element of our culture.”
