Microbus Goes Up in Flames

WestportNow.com Image
A Volkswagen microbus of 1970s vintage was destroyed by fire tonight at the intersection of Post Road West and Kings Highway South in Westport. Assistant Chief William Dingee said the driver reported the fire broke out in the rear engine compartment. Most of the contents of the microbus were destroyed, he said, in the “difficult fire” that required 1,000 gallons to extinguish. There were no injuries. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributd photo

Firefighters Attack Main Street Dumpster Fire

WestportNow.com Image
The house at Westport’s 357 Main St., behind Ace Hardware, was spared from possible major damage today when a fire broke out in a dumpster close to the structure.  According to Westport fire officials, a house visitor from Arizona noticed smoldering in the dumpster which then burst into high flames. He called 911 and firefighters who arrived moments later quickly doused the flames. Nate Gibbons of the Fire Marshal’s Office said the fire was caused by “spontaneous combustion initiated by floor finishing materials.”  The house is currently being renovated and floor finishing materials were apparently discarded into the dumpster, he said.

Talking Transportation:  The Bar Car Debate – Your Turn

By Jim Cameron

Special to WestportNow

Much has been written about Metro-North’s fabled bar cars, the only such rolling pubs on a commuter railroad in North America. 

WestportNow.com Image

Reports of their demise are wrong, as the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CDOT) is considering adding bar cars to the next M8 car order.

The Connecticut Rail Commuter Council has been given a preliminary design which CDOT is using to seek bids from Kawasaki, so we thought it wise to seek rider input.  We’re running an online survey for another few weeks.

As of this writing almost 450 people have chimed in, many of them adding interesting comments, which I share with you this week.

Comings and Goings: Dress Code to Debut on Post Road East

WestportNow.com Image
A new retail women’s apparel shop, Dress Code, will open Thursday at 578 Post Road East in the location formerly occupied by Princess Jewelers. Owner Mary Perkins, a Queens native and now an East Norwalk resident, previously lived in Westport for 13 years. Prior to Dress Code, Perkins operated a home decorating business in Fairfield from 1997 to 2007.  “I will now offer beautiful clothes consistent with my background in beautiful decor,” she said. “The shop specializes in dresses, tops and skirts.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

American Flags Up for the Fourth and So Forth

By James Lomuscio

Audrey Hertzel said the sight of American flags lining Westport’s Ruth Steinkraus Cohen Bridge today thrilled her with the knowledge that they will be up not only for the Fourth of July, but for months to come.WestportNow.com Image

“I’m thrilled when see them back up,” said Hertzel, who was instrumental in getting a private donor to pay for the flags to fly from April to November.

The town’s Department of Public Works, in an effort to trim operating costs in the face of a more than $1 million cut from the 2010-2011 budget, said Wednesday that the flags would fly only on major holidays.

Stephen Edwards, said the annual $2,500 cost of replacing the flags, which get tattered, some of them even stolen over the six-month period, was “an area I thought I could cut back on.”

Flags Flying Again—And Will Remain

WestportNow.com Image
The American flags went up today on Westport’s Ruth Steinkraus Cohen Bridge in Westport’s center for the 4th of July holiday—and will remain there until November, thanks to the generosity of a private donor. The individual, associated with Westport private equity firm Sterling Investment Partners, stepped in when budget cuts forced the town to fly the flags only on holidays.
