Khalilzad, who holds the rotating presidency of the U.N. Security Council, said he wished more Americans were like Westport in recognizing the importance of the United Nations to world peace and in supporting its humanitarian work around the world.

I’m Trixie and I Have a Forever Home Now

Trixie, a special needs sheltie mix, needs a new home
Hi, I’m Trixie! PAWS

Trixie is a special needs dog looking for a caring and loving home. It’s hard to believe that someone abandoned this sweet, gentle girl who is seeing and hearing impaired. Trixie, a Sheltie mix, about 9 yrs old (who still has many good years left in her), was one lucky dog to have found her way to PAWS. Although she is well taken care of and loved dearly at PAWS, she deserves to live in a quiet, loving home where she can spend quality time. Trixie is a delight to have around and will make someone a wonderful companion. Trixie is fully housebroken. She enjoys short leashed walks and relaxing in a back yard where she can feel safe and not have to worry about bumping into things. It won’t take you very long to get attached to this special dog who will melt your heart. Please open your home to this little angel. Stop by PAWS at 504 Main Ave., Norwalk or call (203)750-9572 to inquire about Trixie.

Westport News Closes Westport Office, Moves to Norwalk

WestportNow.com Image
The Westport News, owned by Denver-based MediaNews Group Inc., announced in today’s edition that it has closed its Westport office at Sconset Square (above) and moved to 542 Westport Ave., in Norwalk “just over the town line on U.S. Route 1.” The newspaper, part of the Brooks Community Newspapers unit, has had a Westport presence since it began publication more than 40 years ago. The Norwalk office is headquarters for the Brooks Community Newspapers. No reason was given for the move, but the newspaper industry has undergone severe economic turmoil in recent years.
