Comings & Goings: Java Café Out, SoNo Bakery In Image
Java Coffee and Café, 44 Church Lane, will close Dec. 31, 11 months after it opened, according to a café employee. Landlord David Adam Realty said SoNo Bakery, a tenant in Norwalk, plans to move in, renovating the interior in January and opening there in February. The coffee house opened in January 2014. While popular with many guests, the café apparently was unable to make it in the competitive environment. (See WestportNow January 21, 2014). (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for

Westporters Among Winning Synchronized Skaters Image
Three Westport skaters were part of the silver medal-winning Sprites Synchronized Skating team Saturday at the Terry Conners Open in Stamford. Samantha Paris, 9 (bottom row, 1st l), twin Sabrina (3rd row, 1st l), and Charlotte Carter, 11, (third row, 1st r) began their skating careers at the P.A.L. Ice Rink at Longshore Club Park. Samantha and Sabrina are fourth graders at Long Lots Elementary School while Charlotte is in the sixth grade at Bedford Middle School. According to United States Figure Skating Association, synchronized skating is one of the fastest-growing ice sports, and there is momentum to add it to the 2018 Olympic Games.

Staples Defeats Greenwich 38-21

Staples football defeated Greenwich 38-21 today at Greenwich.

The Wrecker win spoiled the Cardinals’ chance of making the FCIAC finals, payback for when Greenwich acted as spoiler a year ago when Staples needed a win to advance to the Class LL Tournament.

Greenwich went into today’s game, at times played in swirling snow showers, with a seven-game winning streak against the No. 9th-ranked Wreckers.

Staples and Greenwich end their season with identical 7-4 records.

Staples Seniors Sign Letters of Intent Image
Four senior athletes from Westport’s Staples High School today signed National Letters of Intent to attend Division I schools. Pictured (l-r) are North Woods, swimming, Loyola University; Peter Richards, golf, Lafayette University; Lucas Jackson, lacrosse, Loyola University, and Isaac Paparo, lacrosse, University of Massachusetts. The NLI is a binding agreement between an NCAA school and a student-athlete in which the student-athlete agrees to attend the school for one year and the school agrees to provide financial aid to the student-athlete. The NLI is voluntary and prospective student-athletes do not have to participate to play sports or receive financial aid. Signing an NLI essentially puts an end to the recruiting process since participating schools are prohibited from contacting a student-athlete who has already signed an NLI with another school.
