WestportNow Teardown of the Day: 18 Weston Road

WestportNow.com Image
An application for a permit to demolish the house at Westport’s 18 Weston Road, off Easton Road, is in process. Built in 1960, the one-story ranch has 1,288-square feet and is situated on a 1.03-acre property. Because the house was built more than 50 years ago, the application will be reviewed by the Westport Historic District Commission. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Sunrise Rotary Hears of Syrian Aid Efforts

WestportNow.com Image
The Westport Sunrise Rotary Club today heard about efforts by the Syria Fund to provide educational opportunities for young victims of the fighting in Syria. Lexi Shereshewsky, the fund’s executive director, described the work of the fund, which started two years ago from a conversation at a dinner party with a Westport resident. The fund has raised money for the construction of two schools and a community center, and presently pays resident instructors to teach more than 500 young students, many of whom have been out of school for years. Shereshewsky, who as a college student studied in Syria, gave up a successful career in marketing in order to volunteer her time to the Fund. Both the Sunrise and Westport Rotary Clubs have donated monies to her cause. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo

Shut Out of Budget Talks, Malloy Takes a Stroll — to Visit the Press

By Mark Pazniokas and Keith M. Phaneuf


The languid pace of Connecticut’s bipartisan legislative budget talks prompted Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to stretch his legs today. Trailed by staff and security, Malloy strode from his second floor office to a fourth floor landing outside the press room at the other end of the State Capitol. It was his second visit in as many days.

Shut out of the negotiations for a week, the governor is doing his talking through the press, simultaneously reminding public and politicians of his parameters for a deal to end the impasse that has left the state without a budget since July 1. Malloy praised legislators for working and chided them for not coming to a deal.

He noted they talked for more than two hours.

“These are good people. I’m not casting aspersions on any leader. I suppose what I’m doing is taking a moment to address some frustrations people must be feeling in their homes around Connecticut tonight,” said Malloy, a Democrat trying to pass his fourth and final two-year budget. “I’m not scolding anyone; I’m stating the obvious.”

Staples Soccer Ends Ridgefield Win Streak

WestportNow.com Image
The Staples boys soccer team today executed its game plan perfectly at Ridgefield. The Tigers had won nine straight games, and led the FCIAC standings. But led by a stellar defense, the Wreckers tied them 0-0 —- the first time the northerners failed to score in a month. Chris Martenson, Ryan Fincher, Nick Ambrose and Gabe Baltierra keyed the defenders. Ry Cohen earned the shutout in goal. Staples —- now 6-4-3 -— hosts Fairfield Ludlowe on Monday at 4 p.m. in a crucial FCIAC contest. In the photo, Fincher (23) plays a ball out of the back. Patricio Perez Elorza and Gabe Baltierra lend support. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Alan Frost for WestportNow.com

First Selectman Candidates Square Off at Library Debate

By James Lomuscio

How to keep Westport’s retail and overall business community vibrant in the wake of local and state fiscal challenges was the thrust of today’s first selectman candidates’ debate at the Westport Library.

Taking part in the debate were (l-r) Unaffiliated candidate T. J. Elgin, Democrat Melissa Kane,  moderator Jay Sandak, Republican incumbent Jim Marpe, and independent John F. Suggs. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Sponsored by the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce (WWCC) the forum drew more than 100 persons to the library’s large reading room at midday to hear solutions offered by each of the four candidates.

They were: First Selectman Jim Marpe, the Republican incumbent seeking a second term; Democratic challenger Melissa Kane, a member of the Representative Town Meeting (RTM); RTM member John F. Suggs, who is running as an independent; and unaffiliated candidate Timothy J. Elgin.

Attorney Jay Sandak of the New Haven-based firm Carmody, Torrance, Sandak & Hennessey, was moderator, serving up WWCC and audience questions on how to maintain a healthy business climate in Westport.
