Police Issue 121 Tickets in Cell Phone, Seat Belt Crackdown

Every 90 seconds for a three-hour period today Westport police issued a ticket to a driver for using a cell phone, not wearing a seat belt, or some other infraction.

Deputy Chief Dale Call said the ticket blitz involved 15 officers, many of them like him who are not normally on the road issuing tickets.

“Approximately 121 arrests were made (some have not yet been entered into the database) between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. for both seat belt violations and cell phone usage,” he said.

Those caught were issued $100 tickets. About 60 to 65 percent of the tickets were for cell phone violations, Call said. He said enforcement will continue with regular patrols throughout the week.

Board of Ed Approves Proposed Cuts for Next Year

By James Lomuscio

UPDATE The Westport Board of Education tonight approved a list of budget reductions proposed by Schools Superintendent Elliott Landon which he would not diminish children’s educational opportunities next year.

In a letter sent to the school board in advance of the meeting, Landon stressed the cuts are necessary to offset a $500,000 Board of Finance cut from the 2010-2011 budget, a reduction upheld earlier this month by the Representative Town Meeting.

“The reductions proposed have been discussed fully with all of our building principals and central office staff,” Landon said. “We are guided by the philosophy that no reduction be made that would impact negatively upon programs and services that directly serve the children attending our schools.”

Landon said that the proposed cuts are sustainable, providing long-term budget savings, and that administrators believe “these recommended reductions are more desirable than any other reductions that may have been suggested or might be contemplated by the public.”

Bedford Students to Perform Play About Bullying Image
Bedford students rehearse “Higher Ground.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo
A controversial play that takes on bullying will be performed Thursday and Friday at Westport’s Bedford Middle School.

Called “Higher Ground,” the production addresses the often painful middle school life where students live under a magnifying glass, with every word and action subject to examination and judgment by their peers.

“Higher Ground” was written in 2008 by then middle school teacher Jennie Brown in Sherwood, Ore. She will be a special guest at a Bedford performance, according to

The play portrays how students encounter and deal with persecution over sexual orientation, learning disabilities, weight issues, ethnicity, and even harassment over academic achievement.
