Baby Seal Comes Under Watchful Eyes of Staples Students

WestportNow.com Image
A baby seal that appeared to be stuck came under the watchful eyes of three 17-year-old Staples High School students Saturday at Westport’s Compo Beach. “It was during low tide, so we just walked out into around ankle deep water and stuck around while the tide came in to make sure it was able to swim away,” said Ross Gendels, a Staples senior. “The water was very cold.” He said he was accompanied by David Silverstein, also a senior, and Annie Bandanny, a junior.” It was very calm, and it appeared to be young,” Gendels said of the seal.

Buffett Biographer Addresses Westport Audience

WestportNow.com Image
Alice Schroeder, author of “The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life,” was guest speaker today at the Westport Public Library. Her story of one of the world’s richest men attracted a large audience. Among her insights: “While it doesn’t seem like it, Warren Buffett has a sense of humor.” Schroeder, who lives in Greenwich, was a noted insurance industry analyst and writer who was a managing director at Morgan Stanley. She first met Buffett when she published research on Berkshire Hathaway. Her grasp of the subject and insight so impressed him that he offered her access to his files and to himself.
