“When I received a package in the mail telling me I had won, I let out a squeal of delight and did a little dance,” said Nellie, who will be honored at a Carnegie Hall ceremony in New York in June.

The image, “In-Formation” depicting women clad in colorful burqa-like clothing and carrying automatic weapons, won a national gold medal in the computer art category. Nellie said it took her about two months to create the vector drawing in Adobe Illustrator.

It was among 140,000 works submitted in The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards of 2009 competition sponsored by The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers.

Board of Finance Restores $190,000 to Town Budget

The Westport Board of Finance tonight restored $190,000 of the $1.74 million it cut from the proposed 2009-10 town budget two weeks ago.

First Selectman Gordon F. Joseloff requested the restoration after he said $340,000 in savings the board had hoped to achieve by possibly combining administrative costs of the town and school health plans were in fact less than the suggested number.

He said the balance of the funds needed for the town’s health care expense line would be taken from a reserve health account. The vote for the restoration was 4-3 with the three Republican members opposed.

The town budget as approved is $58.9 million, down 1.17 percent over this year’s budget.

Compo Chivalry

The age of chivalry lives on in Westport where a couple on Sunday found themselves caught by the suddenly rising tide at Sherwood Mill Pond next to the jetty off Compo Beach and the gentleman graciously offered his lady a lift to dry ground. Fortunately it was a warm sunny afternoon and the water wasn’t too cold for an unexpected ankle-high dip. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Larry Untermeyer for WestportNow.com
