Nyong’o, 34, was a Yale Drama School student at the time and said Weinstein sent a car to New Haven to bring her to Westport.

“The driver and I met Harvey in the little town of Westport, where he informed me that we would be having lunch at a restaurant before getting to his home,” she wrote.

The actress added that not only did Weinstein attempt to ply her with alcohol when she met with him at the restaurant, but after they moved the meeting to his Beachside Avenue home to watch a film screening, tried to give her a massage.

New Budget Might End Property Tax on Vehicles

By Keith M. Phaneuf

www.ctmirror.org

State legislative leaders say they are strongly considering eliminating local property taxes on motor vehicles in the state budget they hope to adopt next week.

But while they have proposals to help cities and towns cut costs, leaders conceded communities might have to offset most of the lost revenue simply by boosting taxes elsewhere — on homeowners and businesses.

“You’re being taxed one way or another,” said House Speaker Joe Aresimowicz, D-Berlin, who called the motor vehicle levy a “nuisance tax” that is difficult for towns to administer. “We believe that not taxing a motor vehicle is a good policy.”

“Towns and cities manage their budgets way better than state government ever could,” House Minority Leader Themis Klarides, R-Derby, said.

Examining the House at 1 Wilton Road

WestportNow.com Image
Town officials today visited 1 Wilton Road, at the intersection with Post Road East, to determine whether work being done on the 1830-built structure exceeded previously granted approvals. Among them were Randy Henkels, chair of the Historic District Commission (HDC), Carol Leahy, administrator of the HDC, and Steve Smith, building official. After surveying the site, Henkels determined that indeed more than 500 square feet of the building had been removed and surpassed the demolition threshold. Lucian Vita, principal of the group that owns the house, will now have to appear before the HDC to seek a partial demolition approval to be able to continue the renovation of the house. Smith said at this point, the house is unstable and “a good wind could bring it down.” He asked that sheathing be place around the exterior. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo
