On May 23 at about 11 a.m., Dorothy Moran, 66, was seen driving in an erratic manner and later was involved in a parking lot accident at 991 Post Road East, said Lt. David Farrell.

“Moran was slurring her words and could not follow the officer’s instructions,” he said. When she was unable to safely exit the vehicle for a field sobriety test, she was transported to Norwalk Hospital.

Police subsequently obtained a search warrant for her hospital medical records, which showed her blood alcohol level was over the legal limit, Farrell said. An arrest warrant was issued, and she turned herself in on Wednesday. She was freed on a $500 cash bond for a Norwalk Court appearance on Wednesday, Oct. 4.

At Historical Society, Visions of Westport 50 Years from Now

By James Lomuscio

Sue Gold, the Westport Historical Society’s (WHS) executive director, said the “06880+50” exhibition that opened tonight “kind of broke the mold because it’s not about the past but the future.”

The exhibit, which drew more than 100 to its opening reception at the WHS and runs through Dec. 31, envisions what the town will look like in the next 50 years. And to do that, the show curated by Andrew Bentley drew on the visions of area architects.

The exhibit choreographs their predictions including: Net Zero energy homes; redesigned homes to accommodate rising sea levels; a high speed ferry from Westport to New York City; a pedestrian bridge across the Saugatuck River; lots for driverless, self-parking cars; and communal neighborhoods.

“I have my work cut out for me Monday morning,” joked First Selectman Jim Marpe, adding that architects are also part of the town’s long arts history.

Malloy: CT Sends More Aid to Hurricane Victims

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy today announced that the State of Connecticut has deployed a C-130H cargo plane and seven Airmen from the 103rd Airlift Wing of the Connecticut National Guard to help with Hurricane Maria response and relief efforts in Puerto Rico and St. Thomas.

The unit, which departed from Bradley Air National Guard Base in East Granby, includes C-130H pilots, crewmembers, loadmasters, and maintainers, an announcement said.

First, the crew will drop off supplies in St. Thomas, followed by a second supply drop-off in Puerto Rico.  From there they will fly to Georgia, where they will stand by for potential follow-up missions.

“The Connecticut National Guard has proven to be an exemplary group of men and women who once again dropped everything at a moment’s notice to support those who live hundreds of miles away and are in need of assistance,” Malloy said.

In his career, Penna, 47, headed the detective bureau, and still as deputy chief oversees Westport EMS, building maintenance, internal affairs, public affairs, animal control, the training division and information management.

“Deputy Chief Penna takes with him a great deal of experience and knowledge,” said Chief Foti Koskinas. “We worked together for many years.  We came up through the ranks together, navigated through difficult times and shared countless laughs.

“He’ll certainly be missed by the men and women that worked with him,” he added. “We all wish him the best in his retirement.”

Motorists will encounter new traffic patterns next month as Westport’s Route 136 from the Post Road East-Compo Road South intersection all the way to the William F. Cribari Bridge to Charles Street is scheduled for resurfacing.

Public Works Director Stephen Edwards said the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CDOT) project is expected to take one week from Wednesday, Oct. 18, through Wednesday, Oct. 25.

He added that CDOT officials told town officials during a preconstruction meeting that the intention is to commence work at 8 p.m. and to work continuously until 5 a.m. Edwards said traffic patterns will be set up each night beginning at 7:30.

The 2.14-mile section of road handles an average daily traffic count of 8,800 vehicles, Edwards said.

GOP, Dems Both Lack Solution to CT’s Cycle of Budget Deficits

By Keith M. Phaneuf

www.ctmirror.org

Despite their many disagreements over how the next state budget should look, Republican and Democratic legislators have one key element in common.

Neither of their respective plans would spare Connecticut from grappling with another massive budget deficit two years from now.

The legislature’s nonpartisan Office of Fiscal Analysis says the two-year budget crafted by Republican legislators and passed in the House and Senate late last week would balance the state’s books this fiscal year and next — wiping out a $3.5 billion deficit in the process.

But that same plan, unless adjusted, would run $3.31 billion in the red between 2019 and 2021.

Police-Youth Club Seeks Students Members

Eighth and ninth grade students are invited to join Westport Police-Youth Club now in its second year, Westport Police Department and Westport Youth Services officials announced today.

Established last fall to encourage a better understanding between police and youths, the program is funded through the state Office of Policy and Management and its Juvenile Justice Advisory Committee.

According to local officials, club activities include monthly meetings, team building, and community service opportunities for youth and Westport police officers to work side by side.

“By bringing students and police together in a non-enforcement capacity for meaningful discussion, the group hopes to continue building off the success of the first year,” the announcement says. “Together we can further strengthen a healthy community with a foundation of mutual respect.”
