Himes Has Biggest War Chest

By Ann Radalet

www.ctmirror.org

Washington – While it seems they ended their last campaigns just a short while ago, the members of Connecticut’s House delegation have begun raising money for their re-election efforts.

Rep. Elizabeth Esty, D-5th District, raised nearly $275,000 in the first three months of this year, her campaign’s latest filings with the Federal Election Commission show. That was the most any member of the House delegation raised in the period. She ended the first quarter with about $225,000 in cash on hand.

Rep. Jim Himes, D-4th District, reported having the most money on hand, about $1.1 million. He raised $143,000 in the first quarter. The congressional districts Esty and Himes represent are considered the most competitive in Connecticut.

‘A Chorus Line’ Veteran Welcomes ‘Hamilton’

WestportNow.com Image
In celebration of the 40th anniversary of “A Chorus Line,” original Broadway cast members including Play With Your Food Artistic Director Carole Schweid (3rd l.) were invited to a performance Thursday night of the sold-out new musical “Hamilton” at the Public Theatre in New York City where “A Chorus Line” originated. After their show, the cast of “Hamilton” sang a tribute to their ground-breaking predecessors and then both casts joined together to sing Marvin Hamlisch’s popular “What I Did for Love” Said Schweid: “Of all the ‘A Chorus Line’ celebration events I’ve attended over the years, this was by far the most moving for the actors. The show ‘Hamilton’ will change the face of the Broadway musical today the way ‘A Chorus Line’ did 40 years ago. It was just amazing.” Photo by Monica Simoes

Susan Granger At the Movies: ‘Danny Collins,’ ‘Furious 7,’ ‘While We’re Young’

“Danny Collins” is an unexpected delight! Al Pacino delivers his best performance in years as an aging rocker whose life is changed when he’s given a letter sent to him - back in 1971 - by John Lennon.

WestportNow.com Image

Although he hasn’t written anything decent in decades, Danny still tours, captivating senior-citizen audiences with his hits from yesteryear.  Disillusioned, he hates the schlocky tunes but he’s got to support his cocaine habit and luxurious lifestyle.

Danny’s dazzling “Architectural Digest”-type home in Beverly Hills includes a glass elevator and a blonde bimbo less-than-half-his-age in residence. He’s obviously into self-destructive debauchery.

But when his best friend/manager (Christopher Plummer) presents him with this unexpected fan letter from Lennon—a handwritten artifact hidden for years by a collector—Danny is forced to take stock not only of what his hedonistic life has become but what he may have missed.

Real Estate Report: Waterfront Homes Doing Well

By Judy Szablak

It’s certainly the season for waterfront homes in Westport. After what seemed like such a prolonged winter, this segment of the market is already performing well.

WestportNow.com Image

In fact, seven waterfront homes have entered into various stages of deposit in the last two weeks alone. This boom is expected to continue in the forthcoming months.

In the last week, five newly listed waterfront estates have entered the market. These homes range in price from $7.5 million up to $11.5 million, which has brought up the average townwide list price of waterfront properties to just under $4.1 million.

As of today, there are 50 homes listed through our Multiple Listing Service as having some kind of waterfront, and they represent 16 percent of all of the homes available in town. Thirty-seven have sold in the last year, with the highest selling price being $11,906,000 on Manitou Court.

Gas Line Break Forces Main Street Closure

UPDATE Stores on Westport’s Main Street were evacuated today and the street closed for about 90 minutes after construction workers hit a gas line while making room for soil for newly planted trees as part of a downtown improvement project.

WestportNow.com Image

The Fire Department said workers from Southern Connecticut Gas were able to shut down the leak at 10:28 a.m., about half an hour after store employees reported a heavy odor of gas in the area. Store employees were allowed to return to their businesses shortly before 11 a.m. and the street reopened to traffic at 11:37 a.m.

The gas line leak was in front of 35 Main St. and stores from Post Road East to 125 Main St. were ordered evacuated. After the leak was sealed, gas company employees checked each store and then allowed employees to return. Police shut down Main Street to Elm Street, tying up traffic in the area.

“We were digging to make rom for installation of structural soil to support the recently planted trees,” said Jay Kowalsky of Westport’s Kowalsky Brothers Construction Co., which has been working on a downtown street improvement project. The work also involves putting in new curbing and sidewalks.
