Police Warn of ‘Phishing’ Email Scam

Westport police today warned of a “phishing email” scam involving a request identified as from the Town of Westport asking a resident to update credit card information.

Capt. Vincent Penna said it was advised by the First Selectman’s Office today “that a resident had received an email purportedly from the Town of Westport requesting that he update his credit card information to facilitate online payments made to the town.”

He said the resident questioned the validity of the email and an investigation discovered that it was not affiliated in any way with the town.

Penna said it appeared to be an attempt to obtain credit card information from individuals in a scam known as a “phishing email.”

Daily Beast: Staples Ranked No. 20 in Northeast

The Daily Beast online website has ranked Westport’s Staples High School as No. 20 in its list of the best high schools in the Northeast and No. 69 nationally.

“We used six indicators culled from school surveys to compare public high schools in the U.S., with graduation and college acceptance rates weighed most heavily,” it said in explaining the rankings.

“Other criteria included: college-level courses and exams, percentage of students with free or reduced lunch, as well as SAT and ACT scores - another mark of how well a school prepares students for college.”

Daily Beast said Staples has an overall rank of 69 in its survey of more than 700 schools.

First Debate: Malloy Apologizes to Teachers, Needles Foley

By Mark Pazniokas

Norwich –- Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Tom Foley spent a fast-paced hour in their first debate tonight straining to make the race for governor turn on questions of each other’s records, Malloy’s as governor and Foley’s as a businessman.

In a sweltering theater at Norwich Free Academy, the Democratic incumbent and Republican challenger played a punishing game of serve and volley, riffing for more than 10 minutes at one point in response to a single question on gun control.

Malloy, who seldom publicly acknowledges regret or mistakes, apologized to teachers, whom he insulted three years ago by saying tenure could be won simply by showing up.

“I should admit that was bad language,” said Malloy, who was greeted before the debate by rallying unions members, including the president of AFT-Connecticut. “I shouldn’t have said it. I apologize for saying it.
