WestportNow Teardown of the Day: 104 Hillspoint Road

104 Hillspoint Road, Westport, CT 06880
Westport building officials received an application for a permit to demolish the home at 104 Hillspoint Road near Greens Farms Road. Built in 1920, the 1¾-story, Cape-style house has 2,232 square feet and is located on a 1.09-acre property. It changed hands in September for $1,145,000. Because the house is more than 60 years old, its demolition status will be reviewed by the Historic District Commission at its monthly meeting tonight.

Westport Police Launch New “Click It Or Ticket” Campaign

Westport police today launched another “Click It or Ticket” campaign aimed at getting drivers to use seat belts.

The campaign will run through Nov. 25 and involves spot checks on town roadways with officers looking for drivers not wearing seat belts. In addition, officers will be ticketing drivers violating other laws, including not using a hands-free cell phone and driving under the influence.

In June, police acknowledged that their “Click It or Ticket” campaign in May and early June was a failure with no noticeable increase in an average 85 percent of drivers wearing safety belts. (See WestportNow June 5, 2007)

In that campaign, police issued 179 infractions for failure to wear seat belts, a higher number than in earlier campaigns.

Lamont to Y’s Women: “I Never Say ‘Never’”

WestportNow.com Image
It was standing room only today at the Y’s Women of Westport Weston as Ned Lamont spoke about his adventures on the campaign trail last year as he sought to become the Democratic U.S. senator from Connecticut.  He said he and his family had a “remarkable journey” as he won the Democratic nomination only to lose the election to Joseph Lieberman, who ran as an independent. He said while too many people would not consider public service, he and his family found it enriched them and brought them closer together. When asked by a member of the audience if he would run for office again, he replied, “I never say ‘never.’” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Phyllis Groner for WestportNow.com
