Salutatorian: ‘Compete and Live Fully’

WestportNow.com Image
Staples High School salutatorian Christopher Scherban told 2017 classmates tonight that on his move to Westport in the 10th grade he heard from other students of a Staples culture of competition. He said he soon adapted by being an “extremist competitor” but not in the usual way. He learned at Staples, competition does not fracture, “it is the very thing that draws us together,’ he said. “You learn to compete with yourself,” His advice to classmates: “Your time is running out. Stop wasting it fretting about brands and branding, cults and clothing, There is no room for half measures and nor will there ever be. Go out to your colleges and to your universities and live deliberately. Enjoy yourself. Most importantly, compete and live fully.” Christopher will attend Georgia Tech in the fall.  (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Aquarion to Hold Public Hearing Wednesday, June 28

Aquarion Water Company will hold a Town Hall public meeting next week in Westport and clear up some of the mystery about its ongoing construction project across from Staples High School.

The session set for Wednesday, June 28, at 6:30 p.m. in Town Hall auditorium will cover planned water system improvements and water conservation, an announcement said today.

Aquarion officials said that in addition to discussing distribution system improvements on Long Lots Road, Myrtle Avenue and the Post Road, the company plans to detail improvements to its water storage location on North Avenue across from Staples.

“Nearing the end of its useful life, the existing tank no longer meets the water needs for the Town of Westport,” the announcement said.

Comings & Goings: Nike Running to Close

WestportNow.com Image
An employee today confirmed a longtime rumor that the Nike Running store, 69 Main St., will close by end of 2017. The employee said the Nike trend now is to limit retail locations to “outlets and large cities.” The store opened in November 2011 and suffered severe flooding during Super Storm Sandy in 2012. One local real estate source estimated there are now 10 vacancies or availabilities in the Main Street area, one of the highest such rates in recent years.
