Dogs at the Beach Hot Topic

parksandrec08300402.jpg
Westport resident Barbara Paul (l) tells the Representative Town Meeting (RTM) Parks and Recreation Committee Monday night why she is opposed to efforts to relax rules regarding dogs off-leash at Compo Beach before 9 a.m. during the winter months. The committee, during a three and a half hour meeting, voted 4-3 to recommend the full RTM reject the proposal at its Sept. 7 meeting. However, it voted 4-3 to recommend approval of another proposal allowing dogs in cars in the Soundview Drive parking lot at all times except between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekends and holidays during the summer season.

Peter Bacanovic Barred from Securities Industry

Peter Bacanovic, the former stockbroker convicted of helping Westport’s Martha Stewart lie about a 2001 stock sale, has been barred by securities regulators from working for a broker or investment adviser.

The ban was agreed to Friday by Bacanovic and the Securities and Exchange Commission and became known today.

Bacanovic and Stewart were each sentenced to five months in prison and five months of house arrest after they were convicted in March of lying about why Stewart sold 3,928 shares of ImClone Systems Inc. on Dec. 27, 2001.

The federal judge overseeing the case allowed both to stay out of prison while they appeal their convictions.

Longtime Westporter Martin J. Hamer Dies at 72

Longtime resident Martin J. Hamer, an author, entrepreneur and former employee of IBM, died Friday at his Westport home. He was 72.

Hamer, who was active in local causes, was editor with his wife Judith of the 1994 book “Centers of the Self: Stories by Black American Women, From the Nineteenth Century to the Present.”

His first work won him an Atlantic Monthly First Award in the early 1960s. His writings were included in several short story anthologies. He was a former columnist for the Westport News and had been published on the op-ed page of The New York Times.

In addition to his wife of 41 years, he is survived by three daughters, two sisters, and five grandchildren. A memorial service will be held Tuesday at 1 p.m. at the Saugatuck Congregational Church in Westport.
