Hot Afternoon

WestportNow.com Image
The temperature was pushing 90 but it got hotter in Westport’s Parker Haring Plaza behind Oscar’e Deli today as the passenger compartment of a parked 1994 Volkswagen Jetta burst into flames. Before Westport firefighters could douse the flames, a nearby 2007 Lexus RX350 sustained some damage, said Assistant Chief Larry Conklin. He said a small amount of gasoline entered a storm drain and the Department of Environmental Protection and Coast Guard were notified. Firefighters used absorbent and boom material to absorb the gasoline spill, Conklin said. There were no injuries. No cause of the blaze was given. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo

Nistico Field House Gets New Sign

WestportNow.com Image
Members of the Staples class of 1966 and others announced a gift today to the 2010 graduating class—a new sign which will soon be displayed above the entrances to the Nistico Field House. Pictured (l-r) are Anne Harding and John Lupton, class of ‘66, Staples Principal John Dodig, Lee Saveliff and Sandy Rappaport, co-presidents of Staples PTA, and Tom Nistico, nephew of Lou Nistico, They point to the future location of the new signage above the south entrance of the Nistico Field House. A group of alumni including members of the Nistico family and the Staples PTA are raising funds for three improvement projects: lighting for the current entrance sign on North Avenue by the tennis courts, replacing the letters identifying the north and south entrances to the Lou Nistico athletic complex, and sprucing up the two field house entryways with plants and flowers.

Staples Graduates Told to ‘Live a Good Life’

By James Lomuscio

Cheers from more than 3,000 well wishers and family members resounded off the rafters of Westport’s Staples High School Field House today as 405 graduates marched in to “Pomp and Circumstance” for the school’s 123rd commencement exercise.WestportNow.com Image

With cameras flashing and attendees fanning themselves with programs in 90-degree heat, the graduates in the bleachers remained upbeat from the opening senior Orphenians rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner” to the recessional march.

“It’s very exciting,” said Susan Colasurdo as she watched her son Casey James, who will be attending Fordham University, walk in with the class.

Despite the Field House being uncomfortably hot as it was filled to standing-room-only capacity, a spirit of optimism prevailed, underscored by the quote from Theodore Roosevelt on a banner hanging from the ceiling.
