Shining City on a Hill

on
Westport is shining bright this summer. The weather is absolutely fabulous. The sun has been rather penetrating. The humidity has been not too bad. The skies have been clear. The beach has been packed with visitors. Sure, Westport is a township on the water, but if it could be a shining city on a hill […] [Read More]

Cultural Extinction

on
With the Red Barn closing its doors I am reminded about how Westport has evolved over the years, since I moved here in the late sixties when I was one. There have been so many changes to the cultural fabric of the town — that I have learned, as a coping mechanism, to turn off […] [Read More]

The Red Barn has been sold to the YMCA for 5 million dollars, according to unconfirmed secret sources. No word yet on exactly what the YMCA will do with the property, or what planning and zoning will let be done there. I for one am sorry to see the institution(Red Barn) go. All sides of […] [Read More]

It was wonderful to be out on the sound yesterday. I saw many thousands of fish percolating to the surface with shining flashes of silver.

Mixing Drama & Motivation

The two very best Youtube channels for healthy-lifestyle advice are: Durianrider and Freelee the Banana Girl. I just had to go there, being caught-up in all the drama. When I was 12 General Hospital would come on ABC at 3pm everyday as I arrived home from school. Before my eyes the whole Luke & Laura […] [Read More]

The new downtown plan was agreed upon by the full downtown steering committee, only Morley Boyd voted against. Basically it was the committee voting for its own report. However it was a great achievement for Melissa Kane – chair, they did work very diligently to compose the final report as they are calling it. They […] [Read More]

Pseudepigraphical – just the sound of it

on
The new sidewalks are being built. They have taken great care to save the root structures of the two remaining large sycamore trees on Main Street. Downtown is changing fast. I am reminded of Drew Friedman as the one who spear headed the initial bricking back in 86. However, I now get the feeling that […] [Read More]
