Shaw’s Closes

WestportNow.com Image
The sign on the door said it all—Shaw’s Supermarket, the anchor tenant in the shopping center at 605 Post Road East since taking over from Grand Union in 2001, closed its doors for the last time today. Frustration with the repeated failure by the supermarket tenant to upgrade its Westport store led to a decision not to renew its lease, according to the Kowalsky family, owner of the site.

Film “Defiance” Based on Westport Author’s Book to Debut

WestportNow.com Image
The acclaimed film “Defiance” starring Daniel Craig and Liev Schreiber, based on the 1993 book of the same title by Westporter Nechama Tec, has its widespread release Jan. 16. Tec was an award recipient at the 14th annual Westport Arts Awards ceremony in October 2007 (above). A New Yorker critic this week said “Defiance” “makes insistent emotional demands, and those who respond to it as I did, are likely to go all the way and even come out of it feeling slightly stunned.” Based on a true story, “Defiance” takes place in 1941 when three Jewish brothers escape from Nazi-occupied Poland into the dense Belorussian forest. There they join Russian resistance fighters and endeavor to build a village in order to protect themselves and others in danger. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Winter Storm Warning Issued

The National Weather Service in Upton. N.Y.  has issued a winter storm warning for Westport and area for heavy snow which is in effect from 11 a.m. Saturday to 8 a.m. Sunday.

Snow is expected to develop over northeast New Jersey and western portions of the lower Hudson Valley around midday before spreading from west to east throughout the day, an advisory said.

Snow will then continue to fall through Saturday night and become heavy at times. The snow will taper off shortly after sunrise on Sunday.

The low will pass close enough to Long Island that the snow will mix with sleet and possibly freezing rain late Saturday night across New York City and Long Island locations, helping to limit snow accumulations in these areas.
