Town Picks Up Martha Stewart’s Rocks in Sweep of Turkey Hill Road South

As if Westport’s Martha Stewart doesn’t have enough problems, today she got one more town employees picked up the rocks she and her neighbors had placed in front of their homes to discourage parking and to protect their roadside grassy areas. rocks073004130.jpgrocksgone073004b130.jpg

“I got orders from my boss to pick them up and that’s what I did,” said Scott Sullivan, superintendent of the Highway Division in the Department of Public Works.

Sullivan, whose boss, Public Works Director Stephen Edwards is on vacation, said the town acted after publication of a letter July 21 in the Westport News complaining that the rocks along Turkey Hill Road South were a danger to cars, pedestrians, bicyclists, and snowplows.

A neighbor tipped off Stewart—who was not at home at the time—to what was happening and she called the town attorney’s office to complain, according to a Town Hall source. Her stones had reportedly been imported from her property in Bedford, N.Y.

Martha Stewart Visits Probation Officer

Westport’s Martha Stewart has paid a visit to her probation officer, several newspapers reported today.

The New York Post and Newsday said Stewart appeared Wednesday at the federal courthouse in Manhattan

“She came in to review and sign a document concerning the conditions of her supervised release that will follow her five months of imprisonment,” said Chris Stanton, head of U.S. Probation.

Stanton said Stewart was notified that she must follow 13 specific conditions that include not leaving the district without permission from her probation officer and is subject to check in monthly with the office.
