Westport Community Gardeners Launch Second Year

Westporter gardeners opened a second year of growing today. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Jennifer Connic for WestportNow.com

The Westport Community Gardens opened for the first time on Hyde Lane adjacent to Long Lots Elementary a year ago, but gardeners don’t want to count it as the first year.

Today, the gardeners cut the ribbon on the second year of gardening with 30 plots—and 42 gardeners working those plots—with new soil that they hope make for a better planting season.

“It was a hard road to hoe,” said Louis Weinberg, garden co-president, referring to the difficult soil that existed in the garden. “Now it’s a place you don’t need a jackhammer to plant.”

Sam Gault donated sand, the Kowalsky Brothers donated time and equipment and Daybreak Nurseries gave the group a break on top soil to enhance the garden to make it better for planting, he said.

She and her husband emigrated to the United States in 1957 where they settled in Westport and founded Videler Photography.

Westport Prepares for Hurricane Season

By Jennifer Connic

Hurricane season officially kicks off today, and Westport officials plan to be prepared no matter what weather may hit Connecticut’s coast.

“It’s not our job to handicap the weather,” First Selectman Gordon Joseloff said of the potential for a hurricane hitting Westport. “It’s our job to be as prepared as possible.”

Fire Chief Christopher Ackley said every year the weather forecasters say Westport and Connecticut is overdue for a hurricane.

“It shouldn’t be a surprise if it happens, but I hope it’s not the case,” he said.

Rell Signs Bill to Grant Shellfish Stewardship to Westport

Joe Mioli: “all residents will have same rights.” File photo

Gov. M. Jodi Rell signed a bill transferring the stewardship of the shellfish beds earlier this week, Westport state Rep. Joe Mioli announced today. Mioli sponsored the bill to bring stewardship of the beds to Westport

“I can say with the utmost confidence that the town of Westport will operate these beds indiscriminately,” Mioli said in a statement. “All Connecticut residents will have the same rights and responsibilities as Westport residents.”

The legislation allows Westport to resume charging people to dig for clams in the area. Permit fees were suspended in 1994 when sportsmen from Bridgeport and Stratford sued the town for trying to regulate state lands.

IHA Receives $1.7 million Grant

Pete Powell, IHA president and chief executive officer, said today the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority approved the agency’s application for a $1.7 million grant to construct the housing in the Saugatuck area of town.

The Westport Planning and Zoning Commission approved the six units of supportive housing—which are used as a transition for homeless people—on West End Avenue last fall, and the Representative Town Meeting supported the approval after area residents appealed the decision (See WestportNow Nov. 15).

The grant will cover the costs to construct the new building, Powell said, and demolition of the current house may take place this summer with a ground breaking taking place this fall.

Westporter Doesn’t Consider Himself a Hero

Lee Cooper: Westporter saves two from Florida rip tide. Contributed photo
Westporters Kim and Lee Cooper intended to relax at the pool of their hotel in Palm Beach, Fla. last Sunday, but they couldn’t find an open chair.

Instead, they headed to the beach, and it was not long after they arrived when Lee Cooper, 44, of Michele Lane, found himself in the ocean saving a 12-year-old girl and another man from drowning.

While Lee Cooper, an executive with General Electric corporate finance, managed to battle the rip tide to save the Miami girl and a man who had gone in to rescue her, another man, who also had gone in to save her, died in the incident (See WestportNow May 29).

“We never thought of another option,” Kim Cooper said of the ocean rescue. “He did what he knew he had to do.”
