Our Annual New Year’s Gift to WestportNow Readers


Once again, WestportNow presents a review of the past year through the eyes of dozens of people who contributed photos in 2007. Click HERE.

In 2007, WestportNow continued to record remarkable growth as thousands of new readers discovered what many others already knew: WestportNow is the No. 1 source for news and photos about Westport often found nowhere else.

As we near our fifth anniversary serving Westport, we are pleased that an increasing number of advertisers have learned that as more and more people get their news online, WestportNow reaches more Westporters than any other local Web site.

We are honored to be cited frequently by national publications as a trendsetter in Internet citizen journalism. And we congratulate contributing photographer Dave Matlow on his recent profile in The New York Times for his work for WestportNow.

Finally, we continue to be grateful for the public trust shown in us and look forward to continuing to serve Westport in 2008. Best New Year wishes to all WestportNow readers.

The man, later identified as a Chilean national, Manuel Galacia, 65, was injured in the crash and taken to Norwalk Hospital by Westport EMS. He was later released and held at Westport police headquarters on $25,000 bond pending a court appearance Wednesday.

During the chase, the suspect tossed items out of his window apparently taken from Parfumerie Douglas Cosmetics at 57 Main St., according to detectives who recovered the merchandise.

Two water company workers had just left an equipment box next to where the crash occurred and were uninjured.
