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.

Westport Country Playhouse Announces 74th Summer Season in Ridgefield

With its home undergoing renovation and modernizing, the Westport Country Playhouse is on the road this summer in Ridgefield and today announced its reduced two-play season as well as a special six-evening performance by Paul Newman in a play about a blacklisted writer.

Running from June 24 to July 11 at the Ridgefield Playhouse for Movies and
the Performing Arts will be “Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me,” written by Frank McGuinness and directed by Ethan McSweeny.

The second play, which runs from July 29 to Aug. 15, is Moliere’s classic comedy “The School for Husbands.”

Details of the season were announced at a news conference in Ridgefield. (See photo on Arts & Leisure page.)

Set in 1980’s Beirut, Lebanon and inspired by a true story, “Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me” depicts the imprisonment of three Westerners in the Middle East and the bonds formed between them.

Rev. Marion Visel File photo
A minister from Westport’s Unitarian Church who performed same-sex marriages over the weekend in New Paltz, N.Y. awaited criminal charges today after two ministers who performed marriages with her were cited by police.

Dawn Sangrey and Kay Greenleaf were charged with misdemeanors for violating the state’s domestic relations law by solemnizing 13 marriages without a license on March 6.

They also performed 25 marriages this past weekend along with the Rev. Marion B. Visel of Westport’s Unitarian Church. (See WestportNow March 13, 2004) and could, along with Visel, face additional charges for that.

Sangrey and Greenleaf could face up to a year in jail for the same actions as New Paltz Mayor Jason West.
