Staples Playoff Game Tuesday at Fairfield Warde

Tuesday’s Staples football class L semifinal playoff game against West Haven will be played at Fairfield Warde at 6:30 p.m.

While the Wreckers earned home field advantage with their 20-0 Thanksgiving Day win over Greenwich, the Staples field does not have lights.

Despite last-minute attempts to get temporary lights in time for Tuesday, those efforts were unsuccessful.

The report said Newman and chef Michel Nischan were seeking “to bring back the small-town feeling” to Westport by establishing their new Dressing Room restaurant at the Westport Country Playhouse.

“I came to Westport 45 years ago, and Westport has changed,” Newman said. “Hopefully, this will help us change a little bit back to the way we were.”

“Any place you have bedroom communities,” Nischan added, “it becomes, you know, strip malls and large corporate shopping.”

Leonard Guarente: Talking on longevity issues. Contributed photo
The next Community Conversation at the Westport Public Library will focus on aging. It will take place on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in the library’s McManus Room.

Leonard Guarente, an internationally recognized expert in the field of aging, will address questions related to longevity in the session titled “The Future of Longevity—Will You Feel 70 When You’re Actually 90?”

He will talk about how classical views of the inevitability of aging are being overturned; how one gene, SIR2, may be an anti-aging gene; how calorie restriction works to extend life span and good health; what we can do now to increase longevity; and when to expect the fruits of current research.

The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call (203) 291-4840 or visit www.westportlibrary.org.
