“The day he died he got a request for a film,” his wife Judith Hamer said tonight at Meadow Ridge Senior Living Community in Redding, where they have lived since 2008.

Buckley said Meadow Ridge was close enough to Westport, a town where he wanted to be but said had little senior housing.

His film company B&B Productions, which closed upon his death, was his bread and butter. It produced legal, medical films for litigating plaintiffs to show damages they incurred.

CT Marchers Join National Protest in Rebuke to Trump

By Ana Radelat

www.ctmirror.org

Washington – Thousands of marchers from Connecticut today joined a massive protest the day after President Donald Trump took the oath of office, saying they have to protect the environment, health care, women’s rights and a wide range of issues they say are under attack in the new administration.

WestportNow.com Image
Marta Ylane of Westport, who emigrated from Ukraine as a child after World War II, was among the marchers. She said Trump’s relationship with Russia is troubling. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Ana Radelat for CTMirror.org

“It’s important to show that women aren’t going back in time,” said Jessica Cross of Stafford.

A Navy veteran who wore an American flag like a cape to show that the marchers were “true patriots, Cross was unable to participate in protests in the past. She called the Women’s March “amazing,” especially for its “positive energy.”

As Trump attended a prayer service at the Washington National Cathedral on his first full day as president, a sea of pink-hatted protesters from across the country descended on the nation’s capital, arriving in buses, caravans and packing public transportation to gather near the National Mall.
