Preserving Our Heritage: 8 Beachside Ave.

WestportNow.com Image
In another recognition of preserving Westport’s heritage, Nicholas Eisenberger (3rd l) and his wife Robin Bates (red dress) today received a Westport Historical Society (WHS) plaque from WHS historian Bob Weingerten (2nd l), adding their 1903-built home at 8 Beachside Ave. to the WHS list of notable Westport homes. Joining the Eisenberger-Bates couple, in addition to their three young children, for the presentation ceremony were members of three of five families who were previous owners of the house. Among them was 11th generation Westporter Peter Jennings (l), descendant of the original owner of the house, Henry A. Jennings. The Eisenberger-Bates family moved to Westport in December from Brooklyn’s Park Slope section. ‘We wanted to move to Connecticut and looked at each town along the coast until a friend recommended we take a look at Westport,” Eisenberger said. “We fell in love with the town and when we saw this house we knew it was for us.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

On Sunday Before Election, Obama Will be in Bridgeport

By Mark Pazniokas

www.ctmirror.org

President Obama is more than making up to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy for canceling a mid-week rally in Bridgeport last week, coming instead in campaign primetime: the Sunday before the election.

A political source who confirmed the visit was unaware if Obama still will appear at Bridgeport Central High School, where he had been scheduled to appear Oct. 15 for a weeknight rally, or if he might move downtown to the 10,000-seat Arena at Harbor Yards.

Four years ago, Obama drew a capacity crowd to the arena on the Saturday before the election, a visit that Malloy credited with helping turn out a strong vote in Bridgeport and other cities.

Last week, Obama abruptly canceled political trips to New Jersey for a U.S. Senate fundraiser and to Bridgeport for what was to have been his first public rally of the 2014 campaign season. Instead, he convened a meeting on the U.S. response to the Ebola outbreak.

After six years at 54 Railroad Place, Cocoa Michelle coffee, bakery and chocolate cafe will change ownership in early November, according to current owner, Michelle Weber.

The HDC said the award to real estate developer David Waldman, owner of the colonial revival, circa 1920 house, is in recognition of “the adaptive reuse of a structure that was originally a single family house built in 1920 on the fringes of the town center business district on a street that was still primarily residential and consolidated the makeshift changes to which the building had been subjected over the years and have distilled it back to a refined version of what the structure had been.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Transit District Resolution ‘Robbing Peter to Pay Paul’

By James Lomuscio

The Westport Transit District’s (WTD) recent resolution to fund new bus routes by tapping into Railroad Parking’s approximate $1.7 million annual revenue has ruffled Railroad Parking officials.

WestportNow.com Image
Deputy Chief Foti Koskinas: “They’re not really seeing it through.” Contributed photo

Deputy Police Chief Foti Koskinas, whose department has run Railroad Parking for 26 years, today called the resolution “robbing Peter to pay Paul,” something he said could leave Railroad Parking strapped as it anticipates new projects out of the current budget.

Projects include planned parking lot repaving and drainage upgrades at the Saugatuck station, plus replacing wooden steps with concrete and granite at the Green’s Farms Station.

“They’re seeing it as an opportunity for funds and not really seeing it through,” Koskinas said. “It’s a short-term solution to doing something with the buses.”

Malloy Challenges Foley, Then Chides Reporters

By Mark Pazniokas

www.ctmirror.org

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy today challenged Republican Tom Foley and reporters over Foley’s refusal to disclose his state tax returns, suggesting the Greenwich businessman may be hiding income from an out-of-state company or a yacht he docks in Florida.

And the press was letting him get away with it.

“Is he paying taxes in other states? Did he have boat income in Florida, for instance, that has him paying taxes there?” Malloy said. “Is he recognizing wages in another state other than Connecticut, although we know that he spends almost all of his time running his company from Connecticut? What is he hiding? What is he hiding?”

Malloy’s digs at Foley and reporters, whom he accused of going easy on his GOP challenger, provided an unexpected sour note at the close of a celebratory press conference called to discuss Connecticut’s best monthly jobs report in 20 years.

CT Jobs Report Before Election Shows Big Gains

By Keith M. Phaneuf and Mark Pazniokas

www.ctmirror.org

The last jobs report before Election Day showed today that Connecticut’s unemployment rate dropped to 6.4 percent, the lowest its been since November 2008 after the start of the recession.

The Labor Department reported that Connecticut rebounded strongly from a weak August, gaining 11,500 jobs in September. The agency also downgraded the August decline from 3,600 jobs lost to 1,200.

The unemployment rate in September reached its lowest point since shortly after Connecticut entered the last recession in November 2008 and September’s numbers represent the single-largest monthly gain April 1994.

“September employment numbers are very encouraging, with strong gains in estimated payroll employment,” Andy Condon, director of the Labor Department’s Office of Research, wrote in a statement today.
