Connecticut Siting Council Considers Bayberry Lane Tower Expansion

The Connecticut Siting Council met in Westport today to consider an application to increase by about 50 feet the height of a town-owned communications tower on Bayberry Lane.

If approved, the tower will provide improved cell phone coverage, better emergency radio communications, and enhanced coverage for the Staples High School radio station, according to the Westport Fire Department.

Members of the council met at the tower, adjacent to the Westport-Weston Health District, to inspect the site and see a balloon simulating the requested increase.

They then headed to an afternoon and evening public hearing at Town Hall.

According to Eric Fine, a Westport Fire Department communications specialist, the tower height would increase from its present 100 feet to 150 feet and would actually involve constructing a new tower adjacent to the present one.

Firefighters Quickly Douse Fire in Crawl Space

A Hillspoint Road homeowner who started a fire in her fireplace got an unexpected surprise when it spread to a crawl space under her house.

Responding Westport firefighters had to follow a circuitous route to find the flames before dousing them.

Assistant Chief Gene Maloney said the homeowner reported she started a fire in her first floor living room fireplace Wednesday and later smelled smoke while on the third floor.

“The homeowner returned to the first floor, saw fire coming from the floor in the area immediately in front of the fireplace hearth and dialed 911,” Maloney said.

Leaman: No Town Traffic Study Planned for YMCA Mahackeno Site

Selectman Carl Leaman, filling for First Selectwoman Diane Goss Farrell, told today’s citizens brown bag lunch the town has no current plans to do a traffic study of the area around the Camp Mahackeno site the Westport-Weston YMCA says will be its new home.

Leaman was responding to a question from Candice Savin, a resident of the Mahackeno area who said neighbors of the sprawling YMCA property were concerned about increased traffic that would result if the Y relocated from its longtime downtown facility.

“It’s something the town might consider, but we have not been asked to do anything (regarding a traffic study),” Leaman said.

News reports in recent days have said that the Y has finally decided to relocate to the Mahackeno site after outgrowing its 78,000-square foot headquarters at the corner of Post Road East and Main Street which it has occupied since 1923.

Martha Stewarts Daughter: ғShe Feels Like Her Life Was Wasted

Westports Martha Stewart is “disappointed over feeling like her life was wasted” after being convicted for lying about a stock sale, her only child says.

“Everything she did is ignored over something that trivial, that maybe didn’t happen,” Alexis Stewart says in an interview on CNN’s “Larry King Live” to be broadcast today.

She said, in excerpts released by the network, that her mother is “incredibly saddened” by the verdict, delivered by a federal jury March 5.

She said a prison sentence would be “incredibly wrong,” but she predicted her mother would handle it well.
