Modest Ways to Cut the State Budget

By Jacqueline Rabe

www.ctmirror.org

While leaders of the General Assembly struggle—so far unsuccessfully-to close a half-billion dollar gap in this year’s state budget, a small group composed mainly of legislators has come up with a series of more modest proposals that could mean long-term savings for the state.

WestportNow.com Image

Now the question is whether the legislature will take the time to act on them while facing nine- and ten-digit deficits over the next several years.

“We’ll see if anything happens,” said Sen. Gayle S. Slossberg, admitting that several of the proposals have failed in previous years.

Holding a list of 51 budget-saving proposals crafted by the Commission on Enhancing Agency Outcomes, Slossberg said, “Many of these are ready to go now. Let’s pass some of these as soon as possible.

Flood Watch Update

The National Weather Service in Upton, N.Y. has issued an updated flood watch for Westport and area through Tuesday afternoon.

An advisory said rain will continue to fall heavy at times today. Another round of heavy rain should then continue into tonight and Tuesday morning.

The rain will gradually taper off Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night. The potential exists for 3 to 6 inches of rain through Wednesday morning with locally higher amounts possible. The axis of heaviest rainfall is currently forecast to run from the New York City metro area into central Connecticut.

Rainfall of this magnitude combined with nearly saturated soils poses a serious flood threat. As a result significant river and small stream flooding is likely. Urban and basement flooding are also significant threats. Residents should take action to protect property now.

Rell Activates Emergency Center to Monitor Storm, Flooding

Governor M. Jodi Rell, cautioning that southwestern Connecticut will bear the brunt of a storm expected to hit Monday and possibly dump as much as 8 inches of rain causing the flooding of rivers and streams, today ordered the state’s Emergency Operations Center to be activated on Monday at 4 a.m.

“This storm will bring two straight days of heavy rain to Connecticut and could cause widespread urban and small stream flooding beginning Monday,” Rell said.  “We will make certain that cities and towns have all the help they need.”

“Southern and southwestern Connecticut will once again bear the brunt of the storm, and we will be in constant contact with local emergency management officials,” she added.

Rell said that the state Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security held a conference call tonight with emergency management officials from 10 Fairfield County towns, including Westport, where the heaviest rain is expected.

The owner, R. J. Bunch, said he owns four other Oreck shops in Connecticut—North Haven, Milford, Clinton, and Canton.

As far as the timing for opening in Westport, Bunch said, “There’s no recession in our business and there’s opportunity in the down economy – good people who need work – landlords who need tenants.” 

He added that many of his customers in his Milford store come from the Westport area.

Westport’s Daryl Wein Showcases “Breaking Upwards”

WestportNow.com Image
Westport’s Daryl Wein (r) brings his “Breaking Upwards” award-winning low budget feature film to the Community Theatre in Farifield at 2 p.m. today. The New York Times, in a story on Friday, called it ” Sweat Equity, The Movie.” It said: “There are low-budget films, there are micro-budget films, and then there is ‘Breaking Upwards.’ It may be hard to imagine how someone could make a feature-length romantic comedy in New York City for just under $15,000, but Daryl Wein and Zoe Lister-Jones managed to do it.” Following the Fairfield showing, Wein, his co-writer, association producer and Staples classmate Peter Duchan, Westport actor Toby Burns, and co-writer, co-producer Lister-Jones (l) — who is also Wein’s girlfriend — will lead a question and answer session. IFC Films is releasing it in theaters this week and a trailer is available here. Contributed photo
