Teen Records a Record Golf Score at Longshore

WestportNow.com Image
A Staples High School senior is the holder of a record for the lowest score for a round of golf by a girl in a high school match at Westport’s Longshore Park. Co-Captain Anelise Browne, 17, Thursday shot a 35 on the front nine from the men’s tees. She broke the lowest score record for a round at Longshore for any girl in a high school match since a girl from Danbury shot 36 about 15 years ago.  She chipped in on the final hole (one of her three birdies) to secure the record, as she led the team to victories over Ludlowe and Ridgefield in a tri-match. The FCIAC East first place Wreckers look to extend their eight-match winning streak Tuesday at home against Danbury, the only team to beat Staples. “I broke her golf bag right before the match after taping her injured toe on her pivot foot, and she’s also nursing a shoulder injury,” said Head Coach Patty Kondub. “But nothing phased her as she was in the zone.” Contributed photo

Measure Strips $1B in Bonded Projects off of CT’s Credit Card

By Keith M. Phaneuf and Jacqueline Rabe Thomas

www.ctmirror.org

The Senate voted early today to rebalance Connecticut’s credit card in the face of shrinking tax revenues, canceling or delaying about $1 billion in financing for a wide array of projects and programs.

Outside of this rebalancing process, the bond package for the 2016-17 fiscal year also authorizes $382 million in new borrowing for municipal school construction, down significantly from financing for local schools approved in recent years.

The Senate enacted the measure 34-2. It now heads to the House of Representatives, which is expected to consider the bill Friday.

The cancelations affect capital projects at public colleges and universities, municipal school districts, economic development programs, social services, housing, recreation and the environment, transportation, and numerous state facilities and information technology systems.

P&Z: Only Passive Rec on Baron’s South

By James Lomuscio

UPDATE Westport’s Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) tonight voted 4 to 3 approving a text amendment allowing only passive recreation on town-owned Baron’s South.

WestportNow.com Image
Under the approved text amendment, no restrooms are permitted on Baron’s South. Water fountains are permitted. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

That means hiking, bird watching, yoga, bocce are allowed, even badminton provided players take down the net when they leave. But playing fields, recreational structures of any kind, even horseshoe pits are verboten. The same goes for restrooms although water fountains are permitted.

Text amendment 704 is designed to modify the Dedicated Open Space & Recreation District (DOSRD) zone the commission established in March 2015 by a vote of 4 to 1 with 1 abstention declaring the 22-acre, town-owned Baron’s South property open space.

That vote also put an end to a seven-year planned senior housing complex on the property. (See WestportNow March 19, 2015)

The series, now known temporarily as “Untitled,” stars Katy Mixon, a lead in the “Mike and Molly” series on CBS since 2010, which was canceled in January.

The network said she stars as Katie Otto, a “confident, unapologetic, plump wife and mother of three, [who] raises her flawed family in the wealthy town of Westport, Conn., filled with ‘perfect’ mommies and their ‘perfect’ offspring.”

It adds: “She lets us in on her deepest, most unfiltered thoughts through voiceover as the she lives her life as the second fattest housewife in Westport.”

Senate Adopts Budget, House Next

By Keith M. Phaneuf, Arielle Levin Becker, Jacqueline Rabe Thomas, and Mark Pazniokas

www.ctmirror.org

The Senate today adopted a $19.76 billion budget that would eliminate a nearly $1 billion deficit and significantly reduce larger shortfalls after the November state elections.

The plan, which the Democrat-controlled chamber approved 21-15 in a vote along party lines, following a 3-hour-and-15 minute debate. It now heads to the House of Representatives for consideration on Friday.

The budget avoids tax hikes and scales back promised increases in municipal aid and transportation by $125 million and $50 million, respectively, while cutting funds for employees’ salaries beyond the savings expected from the current round of worker layoffs.

Hospitals, nursing homes and community-based social services all face cuts, though the reductions aren’t as deep as those proposed earlier. The plan also relies on more than $200 million in cuts that haven’t yet been specified, but limits Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s authority to singlehandedly take the money from hospitals, local education funding, or colleges and universities.

Pickleball Served Up at Compo Saturday

Compo Beach is set to be the site of Westport’s pickleball courts dedication Saturday at noon, with games being played to 4 p.m.

Pickleball? It’s a hybrid of tennis, badminton and table tennis spawned in Washington state in 1965 when badminton players could not find shuttle cocks. So, they improvised with Whiffle balls, lowered the nets to about 36 inches and fashioned paddles out of plywood, the story goes.

The courts, which opened last summer, are located next to Compo Beach’s skate park, and the event is being sponsored by the Westport Sunrise Rotary Club. It will include music, bring-your-own picnics, pickleball clinics, competitions and prizes, says Tom Lowrie, town ambassador to the USA Pickleball Association (USAPA).

For further information about Saturday’s event, call Lowrie at (203) 292-6089.

Wolf to Petition for Senate Primary, Calls GOP Convention ‘Rigged’

By Mark Pazniokas

www.ctmirror.org

August Wolf launched a petition drive today to force a Republican primary for U.S. Senate with an angry attack on the GOP delegates who snubbed Wolf’s yearlong campaign Monday and endorsed Rep. Dan Carter, a candidate for five weeks.

WestportNow.com Image
August Wolf: says he was victimized. Ctmirror.org photo

Wolf, a Stamford businessman who was a shot-putter at the 1984 Olympics, had cleared the 15-percent threshold necessary for a primary at the convention, when delegates switched to Carter after a call by a third candidate, Jack Orchulli, for party unity.

“At the Olympic games where you are competing, it is fair. Everyone knows the rules. Everyone prepares for the competition. That’s how it was when I was on the Olympic team,” Wolf said. “I discovered two nights ago in Hartford, those rules do not apply, that the whole scheme was rigged. They should have had the convention in a train station, because they railroaded the process.”

But the convention was conducted according to the rules, and it appeared that Wolf was not prepared. Once the roll call was opened to vote switching, as it is at every state nomination convention, Wolf watched from the side, arms folded.

Legislative Wrap-Up? Not Yet

By James Lomuscio

Today’s Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce (WWCC) event at the Westport Library had been billed as a post session wrap-up with area state legislators.

However, it was far from over since Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s $20 billion budget with about $1billion in cuts has yet to be passed.

Sen. Tony Hwang (R-28) and Sen. Toni Boucher (R-26) said that they had to convene in Hartford Thursday for a special session to work on and vote on the budget.

Rep. Johnathan Steinberg (D-136), Rep. Gail Lavielle (R-143) and Rep. John Shaban (R-135) said they would have to go back, too, but that it was uncertain when the House of Representatives would meet.

Rain or shine, the Wakeman Town farm is ready to celebrate Westport Green Day on Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.

Farm officials promise the event will feature myriad activities for all ages, including food, crafts, games, talks, animal tours, sheep shearing and culminate with a traditional Maypole Dance with live music by professional caller Bill Fischer.

Throughout the afternoon, children will learn how to build a nest warmer, paint a bird house, how to keep chickens in their backyards, not to mention how to plant seeds in paper pots, event planners say.

For adults, Amie Hall, a local square-foot garden expert, will offer tips and demonstrations on how to establish a square-foot garden.

Susan Granger at the Movies: ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ and ‘Papa: Hemingway in Cuba’

By Susan Granger

Special to WestportNow

POW! Crammed with action, “Captain America: Civil War” should really be dubbed “Avengers 2.5,” since it features a plethora of superheroes in conflict with one another.

Responding to public protests after an alarming amount of casualties…a.k.a. collateral damage…caused by their derring-do, Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt) proposes the Sokovia Accords, which would limit the vigilantes’ autonomy under international law.

WestportNow.com Image

Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) opposes this threat to their independence, joined by his buddy Falcon (Anthony Mackie), plus Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen).

Somewhat surprisingly, Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) accedes to Ross’ proposal, along with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), War Machine (Don Cheadle), Vision (Paul Bettany) and a newcomer, African Prince T’Challa (Chadwich Boseman)…a.k.a. Black Panther, who will get his own feature film.

Playhouse Gets $25,000 Federal Grant

UPDATE Connecticut’s congressional delegation today applauded $1,053,800 in grants from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to support several projects in the state, including one in Westport.

In a joint statement, the lawmakers said: “The arts play a vital, valuable role in our communities—enriching our neighborhoods and attracting visitors to experience the rich cultural heritage and modern artistic scene that Connecticut has to offer. These awards are a wise investment, and will encourage many across the state to learn, create, and engage.”

A $25,000 grant went to the Westport Country Playhouse to support a production of Ayad Akhtar’s “The Invisible Hand” with a community engagement initiative.

Established by Congress in 1965, the NEA is an independent federal agency whose funding and support gives Americans the opportunity to participate in the arts.

Establishment Well-represented Among Trump’s CT Delegates

By Mark Pazniokas

www.ctmirror.org

Connecticut’s delegation to the Republican National Convention will be a mix of neophytes smitten with the outsider politics of Donald J. Trump, as well as pillars of a GOP establishment still adjusting to him as the party’s presumptive nominee.

The Bush family may be spurning Trump, but one of George W. Bush’s old fundraisers, former Ambassador Charles L. Glazer of Greenwich, is a Trump delegate. So are two former GOP state chairs, Herb Shepardson and Richard Foley. Another, Chris Healy, is an alternate.

“Charlie supported Donald Trump. Everyone on that list supported Donald Trump in different ways,” said Benjamin Proto of Stratford, a longtime GOP activist who helped Justin Clark of West Hartford manage Trump’s campaign in the state.

House Minority Leader Themis Klarides of Derby, where Trump won 75 percent of the vote in the Connecticut primary last month, is one of five legislators chosen as a delegate or alternate, despite expressing an early preference for Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

Chagall’s Granddaughter and Her Love of Flowers

WestportNow.com Image
Bella Meyer, a granddaughter of Marc Chagall, the Russian-French-Jewish modernist painter, addressed a Westport Woman’s Club audience today and spoke of her love for flowers, a theme often found in her grandfather’s works. Meyer runs a floral design business on Manhattan’s East 11th Street called Fleursbella that creates beautiful, dramatic arrangements for places like the Metropolitan Opera and other openings and celebrations. She said she creates arrangements much in the way an artist paints, just as she had watched her grandfather paint bouquets. She showed the audience a picture of herself with Chagall. She was 30 when he died in 1985 at the age of 97. Phyllis Groner for WestportNow.com and contributed photo
