The Staples boys soccer team applied early pressure but fell 5-0 today at Norwalk’s Testa Field.

The loss drops the Wreckers to 6-4-2 on the season.

“This is about the roughest stretch I’ve ever seen,” said head coach Dan Woog. “We’re creating early chances, then letting teams back in the game.

“The scores are not indicative of the way we’ve played, but at the same time results are based on the final score. It’s frustrating for everyone, but working through tough times is part of sports. We’ll get through this one, I’m sure.”

Globe Trotting for a Cause With a Stop in Westport

WestportNow.com Image
Rosie Swale Pope, 61, has been on the go since October 2003 when she started out on a around the world run from her home in Wales after her husband’s death from prostate cancer. Her mission has been to bring information to the public around the world about prostate cancer. Friday the grandmother made a stop at Jesup Green in Westport. Pulling her wagon “home away from home” which she calls “Wild Wind Charlie,” Swale Pope has traveled 23,000 miles across Europe, Russia, Asia and North America. She has made many friends on her long journey, during which she writes articles and does television interviews, which help support her travels. She also has a Web site which chronicles her journey which she hopes will cover 25,000 miles before returning home in June. Swale Pope keeps in touch with her son, a publisher in England, by means of her Blackberry. She is scheduled to meet with Martha Stewart in Bedford, N.Y. on Sunday. She appeared on Stewart’s TV show this week. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Story and photo by Larry Untermeyer for WestportNow.com

McLaury House Open House Set for Saturday

WestportNow.com Image
Workers are putting the final touches on the newly restored Emily McLaury House at 99 Myrtle Ave. in time for the Historic District Commission and the Westport Historical Society’s joint open house Saturday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. From 1968 to 1977, the Emily McLaury House was the headquarters for the Westport Historical Society which has since moved across the street to its current home at the corner of Myrtle Avenue and Avery Place. The town bought the property in the late 1970s and a town employee lived there for about 20 years. The Historic District Commission led a movement to restore the house to its 1921 origins and designate it as a local historic property. In response the town funded this restoration project.  It will continue to be a rental property for a town employee at a reduced rate and is now called the Emily McLaury House in honor of its first owner.

Westport Joins Coalition to Fight FAA

Westport First Selectman Gordon Joseloff said today that if funding is approved, Westport intends to join a coalition of neighboring communities in opposing a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) decision to reroute more flights over Fairfield County.

The first selectman announced at Wednesday’s Town Hall brown bag luncheon that Westport had decided not to join the coalition lawsuit because he could not muster enough support to become a financial member of the coalition. (See WestportNow Oct. 10, 2007)

“I got an immediate response to my announcement from a number of elected officials and members of the public that they thought it important that we take part,” Joseloff said in a statement. “The messages were overwhelmingly supportive of us joining the fight.”

The first selectman said he attended a New Canaan meeting today of the coalition, called the Alliance for Sensible Airspace Planning (ASAP), and informed the other members of Westport’s decision to join the group.
