Today’s Westport Teardown: An Historic Property at 372 Main Street

372mainst11110401.jpg
Today’s WestportNow teardown is an 1860s house at 372 Main St. The Historic District Commission, which must approve the demolition, asked for a 90-day delay at its Sept. 8 meeting. Land records show the property was purchased by Cornelius Connelly from Jeremiah Ryan in 1858. The house was built in the 1860s and remained in the Connelly family until 1918 when it was purchased by Judson and Lily Cottet who retained ownership until the 1950s.

The Westport service, to be held at 11 a.m. at Temple Israel, 14 Coleytown Road, follows one held in Danbury on Sunday at the United Jewish Center.

Corday had been executive director of the Westport-based charity for more than 20 years and was active in numerous other local civic organizations.

Martha Stewart Asks Her Company for Help with $3.7 Million Legal Bills

Westport’s Martha Stewart, now in the second month of her five-month jail term, has asked the company she founded, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc., to reimburse her for $3.7 million in legal bills.

The company disclosed the request in a regulatory filing Tuesday.

The $3.7 million figure applies to Stewart’s defense on a single criminal count—a charge that she propped up the company’s stock price, and therefore her own wealth, in 2002 by declaring her innocence in a personal stock scandal.

A federal judge threw out that count before it went to a jury.  Stewart and her ex-stockbroker were later convicted of lying to investigators about why Stewart sold ImClone Systems Inc. stock in 2001.

Blumenthal Urges RTM to Adopt Underage Drinking Ordinance

Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, saying he was appearing as a parent rather than a state official, tonight urged Westports Representative Town Meeting (RTM) to pass an underage drinking ordinance.blumenthalfiore11090401260.jpg
Fiore and Blumenthal: Attorney General praises Westport police chief in remarks to the RTM.  Emily Laux for WestportNow

ғIt sends a very powerful message, Blumenthal told the legislative body. “Westport has the opportunity to send that kind of message to parents like myself.”

The official said he has four children and ԓit helps me to say no, for the law to say no. We’ve all been there. If a parent can say it’s against the law, that kind of message is reinforced.

“You’re telling a young person you can’t go to that party if alcohol is being served.”

The RTM was taking up an ordinance that would allow police to ticket underage drinkers in private homes.

The government, as part of its “Operation Big Fat Lie,” has filed suit against a Westport man and his companies it said promised weight-loss regimens that were too good to be true.

It was one of six similar complaints announced today by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) which, for the first time, also pressed publications that advertised the programs to identify and reject them instead.

An FTC announcement said the complaint against Martin Howard, whose address was listed as the Regents Park condominium in Westport, was filed last Thursday in U.S. District Court in Bridgeport.

It named Howard and Bronson Partners, LLC, doing business as New England Diet Center and Bronson Day Spa.

With the flu vaccine shortage relieved somewhat, the Westport Weston Health District has scheduled a second flu clinic for high-risk residents.

The district Monday held its first flu vaccination clinic for residents 75 and older. 

The health district still has a limited supply of influenza vaccine available, according to an announcement today, and will begin distribution of vaccine next week for highrisk Westport and Weston residents.

Those who qualify must be 18 to 74 with one or more chronic medical conditions requiring frequent or ongoing medical management.
