Sunday, August 27 - Marijuana lights up debate in Westport.
By Jeffrey D. Wagner
Special Correspondent to EverythingWestport.com
The majority of town and state voters last November approved the use, distribution and cultivation of marijuana for non-medicinal purposes.
Although the state majority voted in favor, the issue appears to be divisive and polarizing in town.
At the last select board meeting, a former and current municipal official expressed polar opposite views and selectmen also appeared to be divided.
Selectmen agreed to place the item on an upcoming agenda for further discussion and public input.
"It is going to lead to trouble, problems and expenses." I would rather see it outside of our community than inside of our community." - Wayne Sunderland
Town counsel has weighed in as has the Planning Board, and a model Zoning Bylaw Article for banning marijuana establishments is now being reviewed by the town.
Town residents are highly encouraged to attend the next Selectmen’s meeting.
City and town governments have the option to vote against recreational marijuana sales in their respective jurisdictions.
Saturday, August 26 – Westport signs on to Community Compact and gets a new van. WESTPORT – The setting at Town Hall was significant on many levels Friday afternoon when Lt. Governor Karyn Polito signed the Community Compact between Westport and the commonwealth.

State Rep. Paul Schmid, state Sen. Michael Rodrigues and Selectmen Vice Chairwoman Shana Shufelt surrounded Polito, who signed a compact that will allow Westport to identify best practices for financial organization, financial policies and storm water planning practices.
$5000 reward for information leading to the capture and conviction of the arsonist(s) responsible for the recent two town fires investigators have determined were intentionally set.
State Fire Marshal Peter Ostroskey, Westport Fire Chief Brian Legendre and Police Chief Keith Pelletier announced Thursday that the 118 Forge Road fire (pictured left) on Wednesday, as well as the fire at 39 American Legion Highway at Bergeron Lane on August 15th, were intentionally set.
“Anyone with information about these fires, anyone who saw or heard anything around the time these fires started, is asked to confidentially call the statewide Arson Hotline at 1.800.682.9229, or the Westport Police Department at 508.636.1122,” Ostroskey said in a press release.
The hotline is part of the Arson Watch Reward Program that provides rewards of up to $5,000 for information that helps to solve the case. The program is funded by the property and casualty insurance underwriting companies of Massachusetts.
A criminal investigation into these fires is being conducted by the Westport Police Department and State Police assigned to the Office of the State Fire Marshal. The team is in communication with the Tiverton Fire and Police Departments and the Rhode Island State Fire Marshal’s Office who are conducting a separate investigation into a fire on August 18, 2017.
Above: Highway apple spill in Oregon.
Friday, August 25 – Apple spill on Route 88! Westport Police got a 4:00 p.m. call yesterday that a transport truck dumped crates of apples onto Route 88 northbound past Briggs Road.
Arriving on the scene police found the truck’s tailgate had sprung open, spewing the freed fruit onto the roadway.
The truck had pulled over to the side of the highway some distance from the spill.
Police removed the crates to the side of the road while apples on the loose got underfoot.
Traffic resumed shortly thereafter, apples aside, and things returned back to normal on Route 88.
It’s always something.

Thursday, August 24 – Arsonist on the loose in Westport? A spate of recent suspicious house fires has led the Westport Fire Department to lean towards arson.
The latest house fire, a new construction at 106 Forge Road has all the earmarks of intentional torching.
Someone lit a fire in that garage, according to Deputy Chief Allen Manley. “It burned the garage off of the house.”
The fire was called in by Felicia Mendonca, who lives next door and called 911. “I actually woke up to the smell of smoke and a huge, orangey-red light.” The whole garage was actually in flames,” Mendonca said
The Westport Fire Department received a call around 2:00 a.m. Wednesday morning, and arriving fire apparatus found an attached garage fully engulfed in flames.

Firefighters knocked down the garage fire and trained their hoses on the north wall of the house to protect it from the possible spread of flames.
Flames had reached into the attic.
Interior damage is unknown at this time and insurance fire investigators are on the scene today to determine the extent of the damage.
The garage burnt to the ground.
Recent Westport fires on Sodom Road where a 40-foot recreational vehicle was totally destroyed by fire, and an attempt to burn down a new house under construction on American Legion Highway by putting debris under a staircase and lighting it up have led the fire department to conclude an arsonist is probably at work in Westport.
On Monday, August 14th Westport firefighters responded at 10:00 p.m. after a neighborhood resident reported a camper was burning at 17 Sodom Road.
The camper was fully engulfed when fire fighters arrived, and was totally destroyed.
Early next morning firefighters went to 39 American Legion Highway to find a fire in the garage.
According to Capt. Michael Silvia it was a house under construction, and someone had entered the building and tried to start a fire in the unsecured garage.
A neighbor reported the fire, and construction workers on site had pulled the stairway away from the house before firefighters arrived. The building sustained minor damage.
No injuries were reported in any of the fires.
These suspicious fires and other similar fires in Fall River and Tiverton have led Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents to form a task force to investigate them.
Westport residents are advised to keep a watchful eye on non-occupied properties, and keep all premises locked at night, especially attached garages and out buildings on their premises.
Wednesday, August 23 - WESTPORT — Westport mosquito tests positive for EEE. Selectmen Monday night alerted residents that Massachusetts health officials revealed that eastern equine encephalitis has been detected in a mosquito in the state for the first time this year.
A mosquito collected on Monday, August 14th in Westport contained EEE, according to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
The mosquito was tested at the Massachusetts State Public Health Laboratory.
“It remains important for residents to take steps to protect themselves against mosquito bites: use insect repellant, cover up and consider reducing outdoor activities at dusk and after nightfall when mosquitoes are at their most active.”
Deputy State Epidemiologist Dr. Catherine Brown
The MassDPH officially made the announcement Wednesday, saying they found the carrier mosquito in Westport from a previously collected sample. There have been no human cases of the disease in the state in 2016 or 2017.
“We have been fortunate over the last several years not to have much evidence of EEE activity. The fact that we are just finding evidence of EEE virus this late in the season indicates that trend might continue,” Deputy State Epidemiologist Dr. Catherine Brown said in a press release. “However, there have been occasional human cases even without much mosquito activity. Therefore, it remains important for residents to take steps to protect themselves against mosquito bites: use insect repellant, cover up and consider reducing outdoor activities at dusk and after nightfall when mosquitoes are at their most active.”
For more information call the Westport Board of Health at 508.636.1015.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the disease is not apparent in most infected persons.
Anyone in an area where the virus is circulating can get infected with EEEV. The risk is highest for people who live in or visit woodland habitats, and people who work outside or participate in outdoor recreational activities, because of greater exposure to potentially infected mosquitoes.
It takes 4 to 10 days after the bite of an infected mosquito to develop symptoms of EEE.
Severe cases of EEEV infection (EEE, involving encephalitis, an inflammation of the brain) begin with the sudden onset of headache, high fever, chills, and vomiting. The illness may then progress into disorientation, seizures, and coma. Approximately a third of patients who develop EEE die, and many of those who survive have mild to severe brain damage.
Steps you can take to help reduce the chance of being bitten is to remove all standing water on your property (bird baths, children’s swimming pools, storm drainage water barrels, and accumulated water in any outside container.) Another tip is to repair damaged screens and keep windows and doors closed when screens aren’t present.
Wednesday, August 23 - WESTPORT — Gray’s Grist Mill grinding for more than 300 years. The bucolic village of Adamsville is one of the region’s most picturesque spots where one can find a little-known culinary treasure that has drawn locals, a few tourists and lucky summer residents for visits and shopping for years.
Gray’s Grist Mill, located a stone’s throw away from the Rhode Island border, is one of the nation’s oldest continually running grist mills and the oldest in New England. More.
Tuesday, August 22 – Raymond White of Westport gets nod from Selectmen as the town’s new Sealer of Weights & Measures. Selectmen voted unanimously 4-0 last night at their bi-weekly meeting to approve the appointment of Raymond W. White as the town’s Sealer of Weights and Measures.
Dennis Thibault resigned last month as the town’s Sealer, also known as Sealer of Standards.
White is a full-time Sealer in Fall River and also part-time in several other towns, now including Westport.
The job of Sealer is a contract position paid monthly, salary approved by Annual Town Meeting.
To contact Mr. White please call the Selectmen’s office at 508.636.1004.
The Division of Standards within Massachusetts Office of Consumer Affairs and Regulations certifies and oversees Weights and Measures.
To ensure consumers get what they are paying for, the Division of Standards sends out field inspectors to certify that all weights and measurements for commercial products are accurate and meet the regulatory standards.
Tuesday, August 22 – Eclipsing the eclipse! A Westport couple sent this photo along showing yesterday’s partial solar eclipse at 2:54 p.m. through the reverse lenses of a pair of binoculars projected onto white paper.
A novel approach to be sure, but never look directly through the binoculars at the sun!
You can adjust the focus of the binoculars to sharpen/enlarge the image for better viewing.
The couple also used a colander to project a lot of tiny, slightly out-of-focus eclipses; cute to be sure, but the binoculars worked best.
This is the first eclipse in almost 100 years that produced a total eclipse across the entire continental United States, sweeping across 14 states.
If you missed it don’t fret, you’ll get another chance in April 2024 when another total eclipse will cross 12 states.
The couple reported the temperature dropped 10 degrees.
Monday, August 21 – WESTPORT - Committee nixes denitrification. At a special meeting held last week the Police Station Building Committee unanimously rejected a proposal by the Planning Board to upgrade the standard Title 5 septic system design for the new Hixbridge Road facility into a much more expensive denitrification system.
“The town of Westport is a dumping ground for nitrogen with homeowners fertilizing their lawns with nitrogen-based fertilizers and farms using manure to freshen their cornfields each year; it seems a waste of taxpayer money to spend over $550,000 to install a denitrification system for a building using far less than the 2000 gallons a day the proposed system would handle,” said committee member Bill Gifford. “I just don’t see the need for denitrification for a project this size,” Gifford said.
Committee Chairman Tim King noted it’s “not a requirement to install a denitrification system, and it didn’t seem economically feasible to install one.”
MOOC, the project’s lead construction company quoted a system design from Orenco Systems with an overall cost of $565,323.
Planning Board members Chairman Jim Whitin and David Cole had asked the building committee if they would consider a more effective septic system design as the police station would be deep into the Westport River’s East Branch watershed.
The septic system cost in the original MOOC proposal was in the neighborhood of $45,000.
The funds for a denitrification system would have used up all the cash set aside in a contingency fund for cost overruns and unanticipated change orders, forcing the building committee to cut back police station functionality or require the town to go back to the voters requesting additional cash.
Monday, August 21 - WESTPORT — Newly structured Beach Committee discusses beach safety in aftermath of Hurricane Gert. After town beaches were closed to swimming on Wednesday, Beach Committee members discussed an important topic — how to keep the three town beaches even safer.
Committee members met with head lifeguards at Thursday’s committee meeting and discussed how Wednesday’s closure went — concluding that people were kept safe and there were no major problems.
Committee member Sean Leach said the town and the WLCT would not be held liable unless they purposely encouraged people to swim during times of water closures. More...
Sunday, August 20 – Select board practicing politics in beach committee pick? WESTPORT – Beach Avenue activist and animal advocate Constance Gee got the nod from selectmen to join the Beach Committee.
Selectmen discounted Beach Committee Chairman’s strong recommendation for Mullen.
Gee’s appointment comes after Cherry & Webb Lane resident James Mullin Jr. also expressed interest in the role and after Beach Committee Chairman Tim St. Michel endorsed Mullin over Gee.
Valcourt and others noted that Gee’s appointment might not be the Beach Committee’s top selection. Gee has differed with some Beach Committee members over issues connected to the controversial Beach Avenue.

Saturday, August 19 – Falling tree crushes Beemer! A BMW driving on River Road was on the losing end of a damaged tree that broke off 30 feet from the ground and crushed the car.
No injuries were reported.
The BMW automobile is owned by Debbie Robbin.
There are a lot of dead roadside trees throughout town destroyed by winter moth and gypsy moth caterpillars, and they do pose a hazard to utility wires and personal property, but this particular tree was on private property, according to the Westport Highway Surveyor.
Click on image to enlarge.
The town has contracted with tree removal services, and they use their own crew and equipment to try and keep up with the devastation these nasty caterpillars wreaked on our trees. Utility companies are also involved with tree removal to protect electrical and cable lines, and it's a constant battle.
Home owners in Westport should contact the Highway Department to alert them of trees on town property posing a danger to roadsides and personal property; homeowners are responsible for trees on their private property.

Friday, August 18 – Sailboat wrecked on Westport beach. Cherry & Webb beachgoers early Thursday morning were surprised to see a wrecked sailboat half buried in the sand near the life guard station at the beach’s entrance.
Returning from a sailing trip to the islands a Westport man ran afoul Wednesday afternoon of the rough and hazardous seas in the aftermath of Hurricane Gert that eventually swamped the small craft and drove it onto Cherry & Webb Beach, the heavy surf burying the boat halfway up to its gunnels in sand.
Above: Susan Moss of Westport was one of the first to be greeted by the half-buried O’Day on Cherry & Webb’s shoreline.

The man piloting the 1970s-built 20-foot O’Day escaped injury but the boat suffered heavy damage, its mast and rigging strewn over the shoreline of Westport’s popular beach overlooking Buzzards Bay.
The Highway Department was called in Thursday morning to bail out the boat owner; they dug out the sailboat and hauled it off the beach and up the entrance path using the department’s frontend loader.
They were met halfway by personnel from F.L. Tripp’s Boatyard who using their large forklift carried the sailboat to their boatyard and loaded it onto the owner’s trailer.
The O’Day has now been added to the lore of famous shipwrecks in Westport waters.
