Emergency response workers from the Wilton Road-based humanitarian group arrived in Iran over the weekend. They plan to provide dislocated families basic shelter assistance, medical care and help children who have lost parents and other loved ones.

“There are tens of thousands of people without homes,” Michael Kiernan, a Save the Children spokesman, said today. “Many are sleeping on the ground. It’s freezing. It’s clearly important to respond to the survivor’s needs.”

U.S. Rep. Christopher Shays met privately over the weekend with Gov. John G. Rowland but did not ask him to resign from office, according to a Rowland spokesman.rowlandshayscombo.jpg

The Hartford session with the governor is expected to be among the topics the congressman will discuss in a series of district community meetings next month, including one in Westport on Jan. 17.

Dean Pagani, the governor’s chief of staff and spokesman, said the two Republicans met at the executive residence for about 2 1/2 hours.

They discussed the scandal that has enveloped Rowland since he admitted lying about renovation work done on his Bantam Lake cottage in Litchfield.
