Staples Overpowers Ridgefield 14-6

WestportNow.com Image
Staples in action as the Wreckers edged Ridgefield 14-6 tonight at Ridgefield. The Wreckers improved to 8-1 on the season and next meet Greenwich at Greenwich on Thanksgiving morning. Despite the victory, the Wreckers likely fell from FCIAC playoff contention when New Canaan—which beat Staples last week—tonight defeated Trumbull 35-10.

Actor Keir Dullea Addresses Westport Sunrise Rotary

WestportNow.com Image
Actor Keir Dullea was guest at Westport’s Sunrise Rotary Club today and discussed his 50 years in show business. The 70-year-old actor has had a leading role in 25 films and five Broadway plays. He won a Golden Globe award for his 1960s hit film “David & Lisa” and is also remembered for playing astronaut David Bowman in the 1968 film “2001: A Space Odyssey” and in 1984’s “2010: The Year We Make Contact.”  He said his favorite role was the one-man off-Broadway play in the 1990s called ‘The Other Side of Paradise.”  According to Dullea, “the most difficult director I ever worked with was Otto Preminger who screamed at seemingly everyone on the set.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Fifth Gorham Hearing Necessary to Handle Information

By .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

The attorney representing the company hoping to construct condominiums in Westport’s Gorham Avenue Historic District told the Planning and Zoning Commission tonight he does not have a burden to provide information in a timely manner. The commission scheduled a fifth hearing.

The commission is considering an application from Red Coat Development to construct 20 condominium units, which include six that will be deemed “affordable,” on 1.5 acres at 296 Main St. and 5 Gorham Ave.

Throughout the proceedings, several commission members had expressed displeasure over when the applicant team has provided information, and again several members tonight expressed such concerns.

Chris Smith, Red Coat Development attorney, said, however, there is no burden on him under the law to provide the information in the way the commission was demanding.

Two second-half goals lifted the Staples’ boys soccer team to a 2-0 victory over Xavier of Middletown today in the second round of state tournament play.

The win—achieved on muddy Loeffler Field at Staples—lifts the Wreckers’ record to 16-1-3, and advances them to the quarterfinal round of the state LL tournament.

The Wreckers will play Farmington on Saturday at 4 p.m. in Farmington.

The first goal, 10 minutes after halftime, began with a tackle by defender Alex Gendell. He slammed the ball forward to Brendon Cristobal, who delivered a perfect cross to wide-open Preston Hirten. Hirten first-timed a blast into the upper right corner.

Police Begin Click It or Ticket Campaign Monday

Westport police will be enforcing the seatbelt laws starting Monday through Nov. 26 as part of the latest round of the Click It or Ticket program.

Police will be enforcing other motor vehicle laws throughout the time—during which Thanksgiving falls—including driving under the influence of alcohol.

A safety-belted driver has a better chance of maintaining control of the vehicle during and immediately following a collision, protecting passengers and others on the road, police said.

Ejection from a vehicle, which seatbelts prevent, causes 75 percent of deaths in car crashes, police said.

Research has found that lap/shoulder safety belts, when used, reduce the risk of fatal injury for front-seat passengers by 45 percent, police said.

Perils of Merritt Driving

WestportNow.com Image
The trees along the Merritt Parkway provide beauty year-round but also potential danger in wind and rain storms. Westport fireifighters late Wednesday night assisted Fairfield firefighters at a two-vehicle accident caused by a falling tree in the northbound lanes beween exts 42 and 44. The driver of this SUV narrowly escaped serious injury when a tree fell on the car’s roof, penetrating the windshield and frontal areas of the vehicle. The driver suffered lacerations to the face and neck and was transported by ambulance to a hospital. A second vehicle suffered lesser damage with no injuries. Firefighters remained on the scene for an hour treating the patient and cutting up and removing the tree. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo

Conservation Commission Questions Y Officials

By .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

The Conservation Commission tonight had their chance to ask a number of questions about a proposal from the Westport-Weston Family Y to build a new facility at Camp Mahackeno, including about cutting down on the amount of pavement on the property.

It was the commission’s second hearing on the matter. If the Conservation Commission approves the plan, Y officials would then need to apply to the Planning and Zoning Commission.

Gerald Kagan, a commission member, asked a number of questions about cutting down on the pavement on the site—which includes 380 parking spaces—and retain some of the trees.

Sunny Lane, he said, is going to turn into the equivalent of a three-lane highway because of the two traffic lanes and the row for parallel parking.

Selectmen Approve Sewage System Regulations

By .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

The Westport Board of Selectmen tonight approved regulations which give the town financial security if a large, private sewage system fails.

The regulations come during the Westport-Weston Family Y’s application for a new facility at Camp Mahackeno, which includes a private sewage system.

The regulations require those who own a private system that generates 5,000 gallons per day to place money into two accounts.

The first account would hold money to maintain the system, and the second would be for money in case there is an emergency that causes community pollution.

Firefighters Respond to Electrical Fire

Westport firefighters responded to and extinguished a small electrical fire on Hyde Lane this afternoon.

Firefighters were met with a smoky condition in the basement of the home when they arrived on the scene, and they were able to locate a shorted electrical wire in the ceiling.

Thermal imaging cameras were utilized to check how far the fire had reached.

Electricians had been working on an electrical panel when they heard a popping sound followed by a large glow in the ceiling area, according to fire department officials.

Heavy Rains Cause Roads to Flood

Westport officials are asking residents to make sure storm drains and culverts are clear of leaves after the town received more than 2 inches of rain today causing flooding on some roads.

First Selectman Gordon Joseloff told a Board of Selectmen meeting this evening that he has received a number of phone calls from residents with concerns about flooding in their neighborhood.

The flooding has been caused by the amount of rain, he said, but also because of leaves that have gathered in storm drains and culverts.

“It’s the time of year when leaves will build up,” he said. “I am calling on residents to help their neighbors and themselves by clearing them if they can.”
