Barbara Kilmetz was described by her neighbors in Redding as a kind woman whose grandson, Steven, called her mom.

The youngster was reported in fair condition at Yale New Haven Hospital where he was taken from Norwalk Hospital soon after the accident.

Westport Police Launch New “Click It Or Ticket” Campaign

Westport police today launched another “Click It or Ticket” campaign aimed at getting drivers to use seat belts.

The campaign will run through Nov. 25 and involves spot checks on town roadways with officers looking for drivers not wearing seat belts. In addition, officers will be ticketing drivers violating other laws, including not using a hands-free cell phone and driving under the influence.

In June, police acknowledged that their “Click It or Ticket” campaign in May and early June was a failure with no noticeable increase in an average 85 percent of drivers wearing safety belts. (See WestportNow June 5, 2007)

In that campaign, police issued 179 infractions for failure to wear seat belts, a higher number than in earlier campaigns.

Lamont to Y’s Women: “I Never Say ‘Never’”

WestportNow.com Image
It was standing room only today at the Y’s Women of Westport Weston as Ned Lamont spoke about his adventures on the campaign trail last year as he sought to become the Democratic U.S. senator from Connecticut.  He said he and his family had a “remarkable journey” as he won the Democratic nomination only to lose the election to Joseph Lieberman, who ran as an independent. He said while too many people would not consider public service, he and his family found it enriched them and brought them closer together. When asked by a member of the audience if he would run for office again, he replied, “I never say ‘never.’” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Phyllis Groner for WestportNow.com
