The year 2009 was unusually busy, and we are pleased to have been your No. 1 source for breaking and ongoing news coverage of Westport for the seventh successive year.
Dozens of persons contributed news stories, photos, and illustrations to WestportNow over the past year. The 2009 review, with video and drawings for the first time, includes almost 350 entries and represents the work of 30 photographers by name and one illustrator.
In 2009, WestportNow continued to record remarkable growth. This last week alone, while unusually busy, WestportNow had almost 97,000 page views and more than 15,000 unique visitors. No other Westport news source, print or online, delivers as many daily or weekly readers to its advertisers.
We urge you to patronize our advertisers and spread the word about WestportNow. We continue to be grateful for the public trust shown in us and look forward to continuing to serve Westport in 2010. Best New Year wishes to all WestportNow readers.

Keep up the great work. I’ve enjoyed keeping tabs on Westport for the last few years from Los Angeles. The video this year has been a terrific addition. Happy New Year!
The image of my father’s funeral last January that was included brought me right back to that very day, and it is just one of the dozens of amazing photographs taken by Dave Matlow during that heartbreaking week. My brother, sister, and I have young children who may not rememeber someday what an amazing and honored man their “Papa” was. This (and all of the photos) will be a permanent reminder to them of how much not just we, but many, many others loved and respected my dad. Thank you!
