A Little Dusting Off

Rain drops not dust turned out to be the problem at today’s Concours d’Elegance classic car show on Westport’s Veterans Green. A few afternoon light showers brought out the plastic over some of the entrants, but most of the show was held under sunny or partly cloudy skies. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Sondheim: Playhouse Event is Fund-Raiser Not Tribute

WestportNow.com Image
Stephen Sondheim : recalls Playhouse apprenticeship with fondness. Contributed photo
Composer Stephen Sondheim, a 1950 apprentice at the Westport Country Playhouse, returns to the Playhouse Monday for “The Ladies Who Sing Sondheim” musical tribute to him. But he says he sees it as more fund-raiser than tribute.

In an interview with the New York Times Sunday Arts and Leisure section today, Sondheim, 76, also said he had not been consulted about the material and presentation—at his request.

“I don’t see this as a tribute,” said Sondheim, whose musical works include “Company” and “Sweeney Todd.”

“This is a fund-raiser. Everyone who ever organizes a fund-raiser has to have some sort of theme, and everyone who achieves any eminence in a public profession eventually becomes the ice sculpture in the middle of the room.

Strong Thunderstorms Possible This Afternoon

The National Weather Service today issued an advisory warning of possible strong to severe thunderstorms this afternoon for Westport and the tri-state area.

It said a strong area of low pressure will move across southern Quebec today with its trailing cold front sweeping across the tri-state area by this evening.

“Summer-like moisture is already in place over the region this morning with dewpoint readings in the mid 60s. These values will rise into the upper 60s by early afternoon, making it feel humid,” the advisory said.

Skies will be mostly cloudy today, but there will be a few breaks of sun that should allow temperatures to rise into the 80s away from the immediate coast. This should result in the development of instability.

Talking Transportation: Amtrak’s Winner—Acela

By Jim Cameron

Special to WestportNow

Tired of the hassles of air travel, the weather delays, TSA examinations that rival visiting a proctologist, and the cramped coach seating with leg room only for midgets? 
talkingtransportation250.jpg

Well, try the train—if you can get a seat. In the Northeast Corridor, Amtrak’s flagship train, Acela, is a delight for daytrips to Boston or DC.  But I’m not alone in being a big Acela fan, as I found out recently. 

Arriving at New York’s Penn Station at 3 p.m. one weekday afternoon.  I figured I’d have no problem getting a seat on the 4 p.m. Acela to Baltimore.  Wrong!  It was sold out and so was the 5 p.m. train. 

First class was available for an additional $82, but I opted for a slightly slower but much cheaper “conventional” Acela regional train equipped with the older Amfleet coaches.

Rough Waters Curtail Soundkeeper’s Annual Race

WestportNow.com Image
The seventh annual Soundkeeper’s Lighthouse to Lighthouse fund-raiser race brought out more than 30 small boats today launching from Westport’s Compo Beach. Kayaks, shells and both large and small outriggers signed up to participate in the 12-mile event which raises money to protect the ecology of the Long Island Sound community and promote the Sound as a viable recreation area. But rough waters forced organizers to call off the race after a short time. Entrants were set to travel from Compo, around Cockenoe Island, passing the Norwalk Islands to the Sheffield Island lighthouse and return on the reverse course.

Paddling to Protect the Sound Cut Short

The annual Soundkeeper’s Lighthouse to Lighthouse fund-raiser race from Westport’s Compo Beach was cut short this year because of today’s inclement weather which brought high seas, wind and rain. Boats launched from Compo could not make headway in the choppy waters. The Westport Marine Police and Coast Guard Auxiliary and other power boats stood by in case of emergency.
