Save the Children Assists in California Wildfires

Westport-based Save the Children said today it is deploying a team of crisis experts to assist children and families affected by the devastating wildfires in southern California.

The team, which will be posted to San Diego, will provide assistance to children and families evacuated from their homes, an announcement said.

“We know from experience that the needs of children are rarely a priority in emergency situations,” said Mark K. Shriver, Save the Children’s vice president for U.S. programs.

“When children are displaced from their homes and schools and their routines are disrupted, they suffer in unique ways, and sometimes they lose faith in grown-ups’ ability to protect them.”

A letter from Robert M. Haroun of Sir Development, LLC, to the Westport Building Department came after the 1810 house on a .6-acre lot at 20 Woodside Ave. was featured as the WestportNow Teardown of the Day on Oct. 16.

In the letter, Haroun said “at the request of counsel for the owners,” he had assigned all interest in the demolition application and that “Sir Development, LLC has no further involvement in the project.”

The letter referred all inquiries to Rosamond A. Koether, an attorney at the Westport office of Cohen & Wolf. She confirmed to WestportNow that the assignment had been made to the owners, who she said was a trust. She declined further comment.

Westport Schools Nursing Supervisor Reviews MRSA

The nursing supervisor for the Westport School District Monday night reviewed a recent MRSA staph infection involving a Westport student as well as precautions that can be taken to prevent the potentially deadly antibiotic resistant infection.

Nadine Schwab addressed the Board of Education following last week’s disclosure that a case of MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus), a bacterium resistant to certain antibiotics, involving a Westport student had been treated successfully. (See WestportNow Oct. 19, 2007)

She said a number of parents had asked why the school district did not disclose which school was involved.

“This was a case that happened a few weeks ago,” she said. “It was identified very early, treated very early and was never from a public health point of view considered communicable in a school setting.
