Comings and Goings: Paper Dolls Opens on Post Road West

WestportNow.com Image
Paper Dolls, a “fine stationary, invitations and printed materials shop” has opened at 335 Post Road West, a tucked away location just a few doors away from John’s Best Pizza. Formerly known as Wilton Stationers in Wilton for 28 years, the business was acquired by Margot Vicheron who relocated and re-launched the business in Westport as Paper Dolls. She said that since so many of her customers are from Westport it made sense to “transition the business to this town.”  Pictured are Vicheron (seated) meeting with Westporter Nancy Laner, a longtime customer of the former Wilton Stationers.

He said they testified in support for the designation for property located at the corner of Greens Farms Road and Sherwood Connector.

“The Council was very receptive to the request, had wonderful comments, and voted unanimously to approve it.” Suggs said. “Thanks to everyone who has worked so hard towards making this day a reality.”

“Dusting” of Snow Expected

The National Weather Service in Upton, N.Y said an area of light snow across eastern Pennsylvania and western New Jersey will gradually overspread the region through 10 p.m.

A dusting to 1/4-inch of snowfall can be expected through this time, an advisory said.

Motorists should slow down and use extra caution on the roads this evening as temperatures are at or below freezing and roads will likely become icy in spots, it said.

This will be especially true across secondary roadways, bridges, and overpasses.

The family asked that the parcel adjacent to the Newman home not only honor Newman but also the family of Lillian Poses, who sold 30 acres of the land to the town in 1997.

First Selectman Gordon F. Joseloff read a letter from Melissa Newman, one of Newman’s daughters, in which she asked RTM support for the naming.

Green Talk: Growing the “Fresh” Movement

Editor’s note: today WestportNow launches the first bi-weekly column from Westport’s Green Village Initiative (GVI), a grassroots group working to make Westport a model green community. The first topic: growing the “fresh” movement.

By Monique Bosch

We all seem to be waking up to the fact that our food system is an obese consumer of fossil fuels. WestportNow.com Image

In our industrial food system, it takes an estimated 10 calories of energy from fossil fuels to generate one calorie of food.

One study has shown that the industrial food system contributes more to global warming than anything else.

As eaters, we decide three times every day how we want to eat.
