Westport/Weston YMCA Explains Planned Move

Dick Foot, executive director/CEO of the Westport/Weston YMCA, today discussed details of the Y’s planned move from its downtown headquarters to its Camp Mahackeno property. He told a forum for Y members that the organization’s plans for safe and uncongested access to the site include smart signalization to enhance traffic flow, two widened stacking lane connectors from Wilton Road, and a widened Sunny Lane. He said there will be no access to the site via neighboring streets, Rice’s Lane and River Lane, and that all access will be through Sunny Lane.  (CLICK TO ENLARGE ) Dave Matlow for

Temple Israel Teens Raise Funds to Save Hearts

Touched by the death of a young father at a local gym, teenagers at Westport’s Temple Israel are raising funds to purchase automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in an effort to create a safer community.

The teens have already raised more than $700 toward their $2100 goal and on Sunday plan a walk-a-thon to support their efforts.

The students thought they might be able to make a difference after hearing the story of a 42-year-old father of four small children who had died after a workout at a local gym.

Learning that his life might have been saved if a defibrillator had been available, the seventh graders decided to dedicate a yearlong tzedahak (charity) campaign to raise funds.

Legislative Committee Approves Underage Drinking Bill

The state legislature’s Judiciary Committee has approved a bill making it an infraction for a minor to possess alcohol on private property.

The bill also would prohibit anyone from knowingly permitting a minor to possess alcohol on private property or failing to make “reasonable efforts to halt such possession.”

The measure passed by a 33-0 vote Friday. Nine committee members five Republicans and four Democrats ֖ were absent, according to a summary posted on the Connecticut General Assembly Web site.

Sen. Andrew McDonald, a Stamford Democrat who is co-chair of the committee, said he expected the measure to come to the House floor within a couple of weeks. He acknowledged the bill was controversial and said passage could be “an uphill battle.”
