Metro-North Abruptly Cancels Platform Changes

UPDATE Less than 24 hours after announcing platform changes affecting riders on Metro-North’s New Haven Line beginning Monday, the railroad today abruptly canceled the changes. (See WestportNow Nov. 29, 2007)

Metro-North gave no reason for the about-face, but Gov. M. Jodi Rell said in a statement a short time later that she had stepped in and ordered the reversal. She also criticized her Department of Transportation for its handling of the matter.

“The original plan was simply unacceptable to commuters and to me,” Rell said.

There was intense criticism from commuter advocates following Thursday’s announcement that all morning rush-hour trains to New York at 12 New Haven Line stations will arrive on the opposite track while overhead catenary wires are upgraded.

News-12’s Appleby: Concerned About Customized News

WestportNow.com Image
Tom Appleby, news director of Cablevision News-12 Connecticut, told the Y’s Men of Westport Weston today that he is concerned about new technologies that allow for customizing news for consumers. He said computer or telephone users can program in selections—“if you’re a Red Sox fan, you don’t have to hear about the Yankees or Mets”—but that could mean they also won’t get important international or national news.

NY Man Gets 8 ½ Years in Westport Shooting

A New York man was sentenced to eight and a half years in prison today in connection with a 2004 shooting at a Westport home.

Brian Minicieli, 25, of Staten Island, N.Y. was sentenced in Norwalk Superior Court by Judge Burton Kaplan.

The charges stem from a Nov. 13, 2004, incident in which a 20-year-old Wilton man was shot and wounded as he tried to break up a robbery at a birthday party on Franklin Street attended by about a dozen guests. (See WestportNow Nov. 14, 2004

In June 2006, Mincieli was again arrested by Westport police, this time charged with failure to appear. (See WestportNow June 2, 2006)
