Good evening and thank you for sharing a few minutes of your time.

An evening address such as this is unusual. But so, too, are these times in which we are living.

In fact, most of us have never witnessed the economic turmoil that now grips our nation.

It seems every day brings unexpected – and unwelcome – news. More layoffs. More bankruptcies. More business failures.

2008 Grand List Signed, Rises 1 Percent

Westport Tax Assessor Paul Friia announced today that he had signed the Oct. 1, 2008 Grand List as required by state statute and that the net Grand List of $10,761,544,025 represents an increase of approximately 1 percent over the 2007 Grand List based on 2005 values.

The list is the sum of the assessed value of all taxable property – real estate, motor vehicles, and personal property.

Motor vehicles and personal property are valued annually, while real estate is updated based on the market values determined as of the town’s last revaluation date of Oct. 1, 2005.

Friia said increases in the Grand List are in the categories of real estate and personal property. Real estate increased due to the continuation of building activity mainly in the residential area, he said.

End of Era: Three Bears Closes, Tiburon Opens

The Three Bears Restaurant, a Westport landmark since the early 1900s, has closed and a new restaurant, the Tiburon, has taken its place at the corner of Wilton Road and Newtown Turnpike.WestportNow.com Image

The sign was changed on Friday and came after Three Bears Restaurant Inc. filed for Chapter 7 voluntary bankruptcy on Oct. 1 at Federal Bankruptcy Court in Bridgeport. The Westport town Web site shows the restaurant owes more than $19,000 in real estate, personal property and motor vehicle taxes.

According to the Three Bears Web site,  original portions of the Three Bears are well over two centuries old, dating back to the restaurant’s earliest days as a stagecoach stop.

The restaurant history said the Three Bears “is Westport’s oldest eating place” and was originally called The Three Bears Tavern “until the repeal of Prohibition gave the word ‘tavern’ a new meaning.”
