Joy of Summer—Being a Scooter Commuter

WestportNow.com Image
It was standing room only today at the designated motorcycle and scooter parking “lot” at Westport’s Saugatuck train station. Sixteen of these two-wheeled vehicles (and one three-wheeler) fit neatly in an area that would barely accommodate three or so cars—one of the joys and benefits of scooter commuting.

Breach of Peace, Child Endangerment Arrest

Officers arrested a Westport man at 1:30 a.m. today for breach of peace and two counts of risk of injury to a child after he left his children alone while banging on a neighbor’s door to get inside, police said.

“Westport officers responded to a Sniffen Road residence on a report by the homeowner that someone was banging on his door and yelling to let them in,” said Capt. Samuel Arciola. “Officers located the suspect walking around the exterior of the house.”

Arciola said investigating officers reported that Ariel Aparicio-Jarro, 49 of 1 Sniffen Road, seemed to be intoxicated and that it was later learned he had left his 9- and 3-year-old children at home and unattended.

Aparicio-Jarro was remanded after being unable to post a $1,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Thursday, Sept. 10

‘Bedroom Farce’ Actor: ‘I Admit I Dozed Off’

WestportNow.com Image
Actors in the Westport Country Playhouse current production of Alan Ayckbourn’s comedy “Bedroom Face” took part today in a post-matinee symposium with audience members led by David Kennedy (l), associate artistic director. In response to Kennedy’s question about whether the actors feel exhilarated or exhausted after performing the physically demanding play, Claire Karpen (r) said, “I’m in bed for most of the second act with the lights out and I admit that I dozed off. So I guess you could say the play is exhausting.” Others taking part included (l-r) Carson Elrod, Sarah Manton, Nicole Lowrance, and Cecilia Hart. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
