RTM Debate on Y Gets Heated

WestportNow.com Image
Tonight’s special Westport Representative Town Meeting session reviewing an application to construct a new Westport Weston Family Y at the Y’s Mahackeno property erupted into a shouting match about two and a half hours into the debate. When member Richard Lowenstein (back to camera) attempted to take the podium to make a point of order, Edward Lerner (rear, pointing finger), an attorney for an intervenor, accused Lowenstein of pushing him out of the way. Lerner had just said an objection made by Town Attorney Ira Bloom to Lerner’s questioning of two town Conservation Department officials was an attempt to “cover up” information. The disruption resulted in a 15-minute recess. John Kennedy (l) is another intervenor in the RTM review. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) WestportNow photo from Westport Town Television.

Farmers Market Debuts at Winslow Park

By Linda Alvkall

The Thursday Westport Farmers Market made its debut today at Winslow Park as organizers and participants said the now twice-a-week summertime event has become even more of a winner for both customers and vendors.

“It is a pleasant environment to be in, and there are extra parking spaces now, so this is a win-win situation for everyone,” said Katherine Dyer, market manager. She made clear, however, that this was a one-day test for the new location and a decision has yet to be made to use the park on a regular basis. As the 10 a.m. opening hour arrived, a steady stream of customers made their way to the dozen or so white and blue tents dotting a lush green area of the sprawling park which up to now has been known mostly for its canine visitors.

Farrell Appears Headed for Easy Senate Confirmation

Former Westport First Selectwoman Diane Farrell appears headed for easy Senate confirmation as a member of the Export-Import Bank’s board of directors, the Connecticut Post reported today.

At her confirmation hearing Wednesday, Senate Banking Committee Chairman Chris Dodd, D-Conn., warmly greeted Farrell, whom he counts among his friends, the newspaper said.

“I have known Diane for many years and I am impressed obviously with her intelligence and tenacity,” he said.

Farrell, a Democrat, twice challenged Rep. Christopher Shays, R-4, for his seat in Congress, losing by close margins in 2004 and 2006.

Board of Finance Rejects $30,000 Tree Safety Request

By Linda Alvkall

The Westport Board of Finance tonight rejected First Selectman Gordon Joseloff’s request for $30,000 to improve tree safety on town streets.

He said the appropriation was prompted by the June 9 accident on the Merritt Parkway in Westport in which two persons were killed by a falling tree. (See WestportNow June 10, 2007)

“Let me tell you, I am very disappointed,” Joseloff said after the six members present failed to introduce a motion to support the request. “I think you are defying the wishes of the Town of Westport residents to improve their safety.”

Kevin Connolly, a Democrat and board vice chair, said he was sympathetic to the safety issues but said the request showed “(a) real glaring lack of budgetary discipline.”

Winslow Park Territorial War: Market vs Dogs

UPDATED
Thursday’s planned “experimental move” by the Westport Farmers Market from the Westport Country Playhouse parking lot into the far more bucolic adjacent Winslow Park has upset some dog owners who regularly use the park. But others say it’s fine with them.

“The anti-dog contingent is encroaching on our territory more and more,” complained Westporter Ann Dlinn, who’s been coming to Winslow for 18 years.

“They are constantly cutting into the dogs’ space bit by bit, and doing everything possible to the (off-leash) area.

Market Manager Katherine Dyer called the move a “test,” and said there “will be little to no impact on dogs who wish to run free in the off-leash area.” She noted that the new market location in fact is actually farther away from the off-leash area.

Westporters Rozanne Gates and Suzanne Sheridan told the Westport Rotary Club today at the Inn at Longshore about the “We are Family” photo exhibit project to be unveiled at the First Night Westport Weston event on Dec. 31. Seven prominent local photographers will take pictures of Westporters who donate $50 to the nonprofit organization. The photos will be shown at many sites around town and later placed in an album at the Westport Public Library. Gates, executive director of First Night, said, “Families are everywhere—at home, at school, at play, at work, at clubs, at worship, or wherever you want to be. We are putting a face on Westport for years to come.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Richard Epstein for WestportNow.com

Dunkin’ Donuts Intensifies Westport “Coffee Wars”

By Ed Kiersh

Hold on to your lattes because Dunkin’ Donuts is about to make Westport possibly coffee ground zero in the nation’s “coffee wars.”

The town’s already intense cappuccino conflict will take another competitive turn sometime in the next two weeks when Dunkin’ opens its latest coffee emporium across from Shaw’s supermarket on Post Road East.

But this new shop will not be just another ordinary Dunkin’ with 20 varieties of calorie busters and iced cappuchinos. This one, dubbed “2015,” will be definitely upscale with granite counters, Wi-Fi, supreme pizzas, and flatbread paninis.

Norwalk-based Cain Management Inc., the owner of 24 other Dunkin’ shops in Norwalk, New Canaan and the rest of Fairfield County, feels Westport is the ideal marketing site to test the revamped upscale version of these fast food donut bastions.
