Friday, May 27 Tabletop memorial honors our town’s POWs and MIAs. As Memorial Day approaches, visitors to Westport Town Hall will now be reminded of Westport’s forgotten heroes with a tabletop memorial display.

“It’s been on my mind for several years about the guys who never came back,” Lino Rego said. “We didn’t have a permanent display honoring our forgotten heroes, such as those plaques we do have on the first floor for our town’s Veterans who served.”

 

“Each element on the table has a very special meeting.” – Lino Rego.

 

The Post Commander of the American Legion James Morris Post 145 had setup several temporary displays at Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day events at Beech Grove Cemetery, and felt a more permanent memorial was needed.

Rego received permission last year from the Selectmen to setup a table at the head of the stairs on the Town Hall’s second floor.

Yesterday, a ceremony to commemorate the memorial was conducted by Rego, the Vietnam Veteran’s Color Guard with an invocation by Navy Chaplain Emil Fuller, and attended by several town officials and Westport residents.

Also present was a member of the Greatest Generation, 90-year-old Briggs Road resident, Tony Souza. Souza served in the 4th Infantry Division fighting his way from Paris to Luxemburg where he was captured by the Germans.

Thursday, May 26 - Space constraints lead Westport to opt out of school choice.

Citing space issue, school officials last week voted to opt-out of school choice, which would have allowed the district to allow out-of-town students into the district.

There are currently a few homeless students who have been put on notice to return to their home district, according to Superintendent Ann Marie Dargon. Dargon told school authorities that the home district is defined as the place where the students sleep at night. More...

 

Thursday, May 26 - Westport garden brings solace to those grieving a child. Melissa Pacheco’s daughter Katelyn would be 14.

Jennifer Mathias would be celebrating her daughter Abigail’s 12th birthday right around now.

Instead, the two girls rest a few feet apart at Beech Grove Cemetery.

Katelyn was 12 days old when she died of a congenital heart defect. A year later, Pacheco suffered a miscarriage.

Mathias was six months pregnant when Abigail was stillborn in February 2004.

Their mothers will mourn them forever.

“You never get over it,’’ Mathias said. “It doesn’t go away.’’ More...

 

Wednesday, May 25 - NEW BEDFORD — A mother duck crossed Route 6 Monday morning with about eight ducklings in tow.

By the time she reached the traffic island, she had four fewer babies behind her.

Workers at Dr. Joseph Glennon’s optometry practice, located near routes 6 and 140, noticed the reduced number of ducklings and were momentarily puzzled.

Then they realized, to their horror, what happened: The ducklings must have fallen into the sewer grate near the traffic island. More...

Wednesday, May 25 - RI man arrested in Gooseberry Island flashing being investigated for six similar incidents there.

East Providence resident is now being investigated for six similar incidents at the same location.

An East Providence, R.I. man arrested for exposing himself and indecency in front of a woman on Thursday, May 12th on Gooseberry Island is being investigated for as many as six other similar incidents on the island, Westport Police Detective Jeff Majewski said.

Andrew Butler, 45, of 55 North Broadway Street, in the Rumford section of East Providence, was arrested Monday following a joint investigation by Westport Police and Rhode Island State Police. He was arraigned Tuesday in Fall River District Court on charges of open and gross lewdness.

Saturday, May 21 Breaking story. Westport man dies unexpectedly. Sadly, it was purported that Westport resident, John Taylor died unexpectedly at his home on Thursday, May 19th. The cause is under investigation.

Taylor was a Westport selectman from 1975 to 1976, and more recently was actively involved in the Westport Taxpayers Association.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

 

Saturday, May 21 - Easterly in exhibition. “My current photographic work is both an exploration and summation of my artistic interests,” Beth Easterly said.

The Westport photographer’s latest interest is on display in the Westport Library’s Manton Room.

The score or so of modestly-framed prints, sans glass, are hung against stark, concrete block walls.

However, at first glance you may think the pictures are first-rate watercolors or exceptional oil paintings.

But you would be mistaken.

Easterly printed her floral photographs on flat “matte” paper. The printer’s ink, heavily absorbed by the paper, softens the crisp edges of the digital photos, giving an effect of a quality painting that was unintended, but proved to be absolutely stunning.

More with photos later today.

 

Tuesday, May 17 - The Westport Cultural Council is pleased to announce it has awarded 19 grants totaling $22,450 to 16 different organizations and individuals.

Sunday, May 15 - The untold cost of the opiate epidemic: elder abuse. Reports of suspected elder abuse in Massachusetts have surged over the past five years, according to state figures — a troubling increase that law enforcement and elder advocates say is fueled in part by the opioid crisis and addicted adult children exploiting parents and other relatives.

Sunday, May 15 - The Land Trusts of Mattapoisett and Rochester are celebrating their latest partnership at 11 a.m. Sunday with the unveiling of new and improved walking trails through Rochester's 80-acre Shoolman Preserve at 200 New Bedford Road.

Last year the Mattapoisett Land Trust, which acquired the property as a gift from Edith and Eliot Shoolman in 1984, agreed to co-own the site with the Rochester Land Trust, which did not exist until 1997. The agreement gave the bulk of the preserve's stewardship to the Rochester trust, and volunteers went right to work to improve the trails. More...

Friday, May 13 Afterhours picketing protest by Westport Highway Department workers take their message to the street. Main Street in front of Town Hall to be exact.

The department’s union is stalled in negotiations with town management over a beef with a proposed two percent pay increase that will not cover a steep increase (12 percent) in health care costs.

To be clear, this is not a strike, but an awareness campaign where the signs speak for themselves.

“We only want what’s fair,” one picketer said.

The highway department is down a working foreman’s position and that also vexes the department workforce. “It’s just more work for us,” another worker said.

“We’re still negotiating, just more slowly than the other unions.”

Happy birthday Ed, and may you have another 100!

Pictured above, from the left are daughters Linda Beaulieu and Sally Barboza, Ed’s wife Helen, Ed Beaulieu, behind Ed is his son Joseph, Ed’s son Douglas with his wife Fran, Eileen the wife of Barry, and Barry also Ed’s son.

Tuesday, May 10 – An antiques roadshow of sorts came to Westport’s Macomber Community House on April 20th.

The Westport Woman’s Club at their April meeting hosted guest speaker James A. Faria, who has 50 years’ experience in the antiques field.

Inset: Alice Huff receives an appraisal for her vintage rolling pin from antique conservator, James Faria.

The guest antique furniture conservator has worked with George Considine, a known antiques dealer from the area. Faria has been doing early furniture conservation and appraisals. 

Members and guests were asked to bring in up to two of their treasured antiquities for an assessment, paying $1.50 for each appraisal.

Jim discussed the history of each article presented, gave the value, and then generously donated the monies from the roadshow to the Woman’s Club Scholarship Fund.

Hostesses for the evening were Martha Sullivan and Wynne Tripp.

So how much is Alice’s rolling pin worth?

You’ll just have to ask her!

Monday, May 2 Not on my property you don’t!  The potential development of the former Head of Westport garage into a Westport River Watershed Alliance educational river center has caused a property dispute for the couple owning the adjacent Old County Road land.

Neighbors concerned with the commercial expansion at the Head Landing, the property line dispute, and traffic/pedestrian safety have formed a Neighborhood Association to monitor the development of the 1848-established public town landing.

The issue will now come before tomorrow night’s annual Town Meeting.

Since 1795, the home could only be accessed through town-owned property at the Head of Westport Landing. This issue came to light when the WRWA purchased the old garage building and launched plans for a center. More...

 “We are a small non-profit organization that manages over 650 acres of land open to passive recreation spread across 10 destination properties throughout town,” said Ryan Mann, Executive Director of WLCT.  “Our vision for each property is to promote wildlife habitat, clean drinking water, and welcoming spaces for the public. The Trail Team volunteers are making a once distant vision an immediate reality. I encourage all community members to get out on their local trail and see first-hand the tremendous service that your neighbors are fulfilling.”
