Westporters Hosting International Guests for Thanksgiving

Each year, the International Hospitality Committee of Fairfield County invites local families to open their homes during the Thanksgiving holiday to United Nations staff and diplomats, State Department sponsored visitors, and Fulbright Scholars and other international students.

Last year, 18 Westport families welcomed 30 guests from Iran, Argentina, Korea, China, Sweden, Spain, The Netherlands, Pakistan, Germany, United Kingdom, Mexico, Austria, Turkey, Finland and Russia.

In 2002, a couple in Westport agreed to host a South Korean couple from the United Nations for a Sunday dinner. The meal was a success, and the visitors came back several times and enjoyed a golf outing with their American hosts.

Rell Proposes Cuts to Town Aid, Other Reductions

By Keith M. Phaneuf

Gov. M. Jodi Rell challenged the legislature today to adopt $38 million in cuts to this fiscal year's budget to maintain the emergency winter heating assistance program at last year's level -- and to alleviate a $33 million shortfall legislators created by gambling on extra federal aid.

Writing to leaders of the Appropriations Committee, Rell suggested reductions to municipal aid and other popular programs involving early childhood education, tourism and economic development, environmental protection and mass transit.

But the proposed cuts also reached into more obscure areas traditionally avoided, touching everything from legislators' stationary to mileage and other expense reimbursements for lawmakers, judges and Executive Branch staff.

"Many of these dollars have not yet been spent," the governor wrote. "Some represent a partial reduction in funding for programs that can still operate well at lower levels."

“The main feeling I have now is gratitude,” says DiBerardino, 21, a 2007 Staples High School graduate.

He was among 32 winners selected for the most prestigious academic award available to U.S. college students. Rhodes Scholarships provide all expenses for two or three years of study at the University of Oxford in England. He plans a two-year study leading to a M Phil in Music.

“The biggest thing that I took away from Staples is that I felt really prepared when I got to Princeton,” he said.
