2009 In Pictures

Once again, WestportNow presents as a New Year’s gift to our readers a review of the past year through the eyes of Westporters who contributed photos, video and illustrations to WestportNow in 2009.

The year 2009 was unusually busy, and we are pleased to have been your No. 1 source for breaking and ongoing news coverage of Westport for the seventh successive year.

Dozens of persons contributed news stories, photos, and illustrations to WestportNow over the past year. The 2009 review, with video and drawings for the first time, includes almost 350 entries and represents the work of 30 photographers by name and one illustrator.

In 2009, WestportNow continued to record remarkable growth. This last week alone, while unusually busy, WestportNow had more than 90,000 page views and more than 15,000 unique visitors. No other Westport news source, print or online, delivers as many daily or weekly readers to its advertisers.

We urge you to patronize our advertisers and spread the word about WestportNow. We continue to be grateful for the public trust shown in us and look forward to continuing to serve Westport in 2010. Best New Year wishes to all WestportNow readers.

Splash Restaurant Appears to Have Closed

Westport’s Splash Restaurant & Bar appears to have closed.

Splash Restaurant & Bar has been a Westport waterside favorite since 1995.  (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

The shorefront haunt at Westport’s Longshore Park since 1995 has shut its doors for good, according to a woman who answered the phone there this week.

Three weeks ago, Teresa De Caro, whose brother owns the business, insisted that the restaurant had not shut down but was closed for maintenance, plumbing and electrical repairs. (See WestportNow Oct. 22, 2014)  She also said that it would reopen Oct. 21.

When it did not reopen, she said the electrical repairs “are taking longer than expected.” She did not say when the work would be completed. Efforts to reach her today or anyone else at the De Caro group headquarters were unsuccessful.

He explained: “There have been far too many shootings in our country in the last few years. We must know who every student is. Please understand that it is a safety issue.”
