Town Picks Up Martha Stewart’s Rocks in Sweep of Turkey Hill Road South

As if Westport’s Martha Stewart doesn’t have enough problems, today she got one more town employees picked up the rocks she and her neighbors had placed in front of their homes to discourage parking and to protect their roadside grassy areas. rocks073004130.jpgrocksgone073004b130.jpg

“I got orders from my boss to pick them up and that’s what I did,” said Scott Sullivan, superintendent of the Highway Division in the Department of Public Works.

Sullivan, whose boss, Public Works Director Stephen Edwards is on vacation, said the town acted after publication of a letter July 21 in the Westport News complaining that the rocks along Turkey Hill Road South were a danger to cars, pedestrians, bicyclists, and snowplows.

A neighbor tipped off Stewart—who was not at home at the time—to what was happening and she called the town attorney’s office to complain, according to a Town Hall source. Her stones had reportedly been imported from her property in Bedford, N.Y.

Martha Stewarts Lawyer: She is Considering Starting Prison Sentence

The lawyer for Westports Martha Stewart said today she that is “taking a look at” the idea of voluntarily beginning her five-month prison sentence while appealing her conviction.

“She’s willing to think about this because of the company,” attorney Walter Dellinger said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” He said Stewart “would consider the possibility” of serving her sentence “in the near future ... at the time that’s best for the company.”

“No decision has been made about whether she’s going to do it, but she is taking a look at it,” said Dellinger, who is handling Stewart’s appeal.

Dellinger said Stewart wants her appeal to “go ahead vigorously because she wants to clear her name.” He said the legal team believes it has strong grounds to appeal.

Fairfield County Caucus Urges Congress to Preserve Transportation Funding

Westport’s state Sen. Judith G. Freedman, leader of the Fairfield County Caucus, today urged Congress to protect Connecticuts funding while working to resolve the differences in separate pending House and Senate federal transportation bills.

She was among a number of Fairfield County legislators who signed a letter to the conference co-chairs urging Congress to enact a six-year reauthorization bill funded at $318 billion, and maintain the 90.5 percent minimum guarantee contained within the current formula.

The state legislators wrote their letter to emphasize their support for the position staked out by Gov. M. Jodi Rell in a letter she wrote to Congress earlier.

ғAs Connecticut state legislators who represent Fairfield County, we are deeply concerned about the effects that federal transportation legislation can have- both positive and negative on our state֒s ongoing highway and mass transit programs,” the letter said.

Government Witness in Martha Stewart Trial Spared Jail Time

The stockbroker assistant who was the government’s star witness in the case against Westport’s Martha Stewart today was spared jail time and probation and was fined $2,000 for his part in the case.

Douglas Faneuil, 28, who testified that his boss ordered him to tip Stewart about a stock trade, previously pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge and cooperated with government lawyers.

U.S. District Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum handed out a lesser sentence than recommended by guidelines. She cited Faneuil’s “substantial assistance” during the trial.

The federal sentencing guidelines recommended a prison sentence of up to six months that could have been followed by probation.

Getting Ready for “A Community Collects:” What Do Our Neighbors Collect?

By Emily Laux

Contributing Editor
WestportNow.com

The homes in my quiet neighborhood are full of surprises. One of my neighbors, a banker with a lot of frequent flyer miles, collects sand from beaches and deserts around the world. elisemeyer072301260.jpg

His collection is meticulously displayed—each sample of sand is sealed and neatly labeled in a glass laboratory vial.

Hundreds of the matching glass vials are perfectly lined up in rows in an enormous rosewood cabinet he had custom made in Hong Kong.

His wifeԒs collection of snow globes is equally impressive, but less rigorously displayed.

They sit in a friendly manner on open shelves suspended below her kitchen cabinets, inviting guests to pick them up and shake vigorously.
