A New Year’s Gift to WestportNow Readers Image WestportNow published hundreds of pictures in 2006 from scores of photographers. We are proud to present a sampling of 360 of them for year-end review. CLICK HERE. They represent the work of more than 50 photographers.

It is through their efforts and those of other contributors that WestportNow again recorded remarkable growth in 2006. We are pleased to continue to be frequently cited nationally as a trend-setter in Internet citizen journalism.

For almost four years, WestportNow has been the No. 1 source for news and information for Westport, routinely breaking stories and publishing news and pictures found nowhere else. We’ve also enabled an ongoing community dialogue through comments.

We are grateful for the public trust shown in us and look forward to continuing to serve Westport in 2007. Best New Year wishes to all WestportNow readers.
