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.

WestportNow Teardown of the Day: 2 Pony Lane Image
An application for a permit to demolish the house at Westport’s 2 Pony Lane, offEaston Road in the Coleytown section, is in process. Built in 1950, the 1-3/4-story contemporary has 2,386 square feet, is situated on a 1.05-acre property and, according to the assessor records, ownership last changed hands in August, 1990. Because the house was built more than 50 years ago, the application will be reviewed by the Westport Historic District Commission. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for

Friends’ Mini-Golf Fundraiser Memorializes Andrew Accardi

By James Lomuscio

To hear Westporter Brett Adelglass, 21, tell it, they were a tight circle of friends, five buddies who met in seventh grade, forged friendships at Staples High School and remained friends throughout college and beyond. Image

One of the five was Andrew Accardi, who had battled neuroblastoma, a pediatric cancer, from age 5, but never let the disease hold him back, according to Adelglass.

Andrew, who had completed his junior year at Villanova University, majoring in finance, died Oct. 31, 2013.

To celebrate their friend, who loved golf and was on the Staples golf team, Adleglass, Sam Bender, Matt Labarre and Ethan Tassel—all 2011 Staples graduates—are scheduled to host a miniature golf fundraiser Sunday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Norwalk Cove Marina at 48 Calf Pasture Beach Road.
