Helmsley's belongings being sold for charity


Norwalk Advocate


A globe-spanning collection of art, priceless furniture and other belongings from the estate of late Greenwich hotel and real estate billionaire Leona Helmsley will be auctioned in Manhattan by Christie's International starting tomorrow, the auction house said.

More than 500 items including silver platters, Old Dutch Masters paintings and Chinese ceramic figurines were chosen from Helmsley's Greenwich, New York, and Sarasota, Fla., residences to be sold as part of a series of auctions conducted by Christies at its Rockefeller Center auction house through November, Christie's spokesman Rik Pike said.

Proceeds will benefit the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust, Pike said, with Helmsley's belongings expected to bring in between $4 million to $6 million, according to Christie's.

'Christie's is delighted to be offering for sale selections from the contents of Leona M. Helmsley's three residences, to be auctioned here at Christie's New York throughout 2008,' Pike said. 'The collection reflects a sophisticated taste and a wonderful sense of style across a wide range of collecting fields, including Asian art, European painting and decorative arts.'

Tomorrow, Christie's will offer the first block of Helmsley property, some of her collected silver, including a silver-gilt Tiffany flatware set appraised at more than $25,000, according to a listing on Christie's Web site.....

Broadwater may come between friends


Norwalk Advocate

As state attorneys general in Connecticut and New York, Democrats Richard Blumenthal and Eliot Spitzer were political soulmates, particularly when it came to pooling legal resources and clout to protect the environment.

'In some ways, it was a partnership,' said Brooke Masters, a Financial Times reporter who in 2006 authored 'Spoiling For A Fight: The Rise of Eliot Spitzer.' 'There's a whole series of lawsuits over coal-fired plants and global warming.'

In late 2006, the Competitive Enterprise Institution, a conservative Washington, D.C., think tank, rated Blumenthal the worst state attorney general based on his activist approach. Spitzer came in third.

Spitzer, who has just completed his first year as New York governor, and Blumenthal also have a strong friendship.

Baseball fans have a laugh on Shays after gaffes

Norwalk Advocate

Sports trivia apparently isn't a favorite pastime of Rep. Christopher Shays.

A number of national sports Web sites lampooned the Fairfield County Republican yesterday after he confused the names of some key baseball figures and one of the sport's milestones during a congressional hearing on the steroids scandal.

Shays, who is a member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, referred to the 1919 Chicago White Sox team that threw the World Series as the 'Blackhawks' instead of the Black Sox, the moniker commonly given the discredited team.

The Blackhawks are a National Hockey League team.

'Seems to me that if anyone in Congress is going to lecture baseball on how it runs its sport, that congressman ought to demonstrate at least some basic familiarity with the sport. Keep that in mind as you listen to Shays wax poetic throughout the day -- and afterward,' said Jayson Stark, a senior writer for ESPN.com who was blogging yesterday's hearing for the sports Web site....

... later corrected himself and said he was referring to Palmeiro's 3,000-hit milestone. Fay Vincent, a former Greenwich resident and former constituent of Shays who was baseball commissioner from 1989 to 1992, defended the congressman. 'One of ...

Greenwich death ruled a murder by gunshots

Norwalk Advocate


Multiple gunshot wounds to the chest killed the man whose body was found Monday morning along a private backcountry Greenwich road, the state medical examiner's office said yesterday.

Police identified the man through fingerprints as a 49-year-old out-of-town man but are withholding his name and last known residence pending notification of his family, Chief David Ridberg said.

A day after the body was found lying across Sterling Road, the medical examiner ruled the death a homicide while police investigated. Officers were at the scene by Sterling and Riversville roads yesterday morning, canvassing the neighborhood and motorists on whether they saw anything Monday morning.

'We're working the case pretty hard,' Ridberg said. 'You have to get on it early and run with it, otherwise you'll lose your opportunity.'

A bulletin was sent to other police departments seeking information about the man.

Several neighbors who live near where the body was found said they did not hear or see anything unusual Monday morning. Police have told neighbors that they do not believe the man was shot where his body was found, residents said.....

You Can Take Bull from Leona


New York Post

Leona Helmsley is being sold off to the little people.


Christie's is auctioning off the late Queen of Mean's collection of art, furnishings and jeweled animals over the next year, in a sale estimated to be worth as much as $6 million.


Known for her nasty temper and "let them eat cake" disdain for those less fortunate than she, Helmsley, who died last year at the age of 87, also had an eclectic taste for fine art and expensive knickknacks.


Among the items is a 15-inch jade water buffalo, estimated to go for between $400,000 and $600,000.

01/16/08 - Letter To The Editor - School Administration concentrate on punishing those students involved with drugs, bullying, poor performance...



Norwalk Advocate

To the editor:

I am a Greenwich resident, who, along with Gordon and Sally Mackenzie, feel that Greenwich High School student Steven Bryn has been treated unjustly by the school administration.

From time immemorial, how many high school boys have made similar immature remarks such as Steven allegedly made? These are, for the most part, smart-alecky comments, and really should not be considered serious enough to sully an exemplary academic record sent to colleges.

I wonder if Steven were to have called a girl "fat," or "ugly," would this go on his record? These comments are far more damaging to a female's ego than one regarding her chest.......

01/16/08 - I Met With First Selectman Peter Tesei Today

We talked about the crime, drugs, graffiti, quality of life, vandalism problems that plague Byram residents and merchants every single day.
The possibility of a Byram Police Substation and more police patrols throughout Byram were mentioned.
Mr. Tesei said that he would send an email to the Department of Public Works about the Graffiti on the Welcome to the Town Of Greenwich- Village Of Byram sign on Putnam Avenue.
We also discussed how Police Squad 2 (Central Greenwich) and Police Squad 3 (Eastern Greenwich) currently work together to solve crime problems. It was suggested that maybe Squad 1 (Western Greenwich - Byram) could be assisted by squad 2 for a few months to lower the crime rate in Byram.
Mr. Tesei and I both agreed that there were many wonderful new projects ready to go in Byram once the security and quality of life problems are eliminated by the Greenwich Police Department.
Mr. Tesei was very enthusiastic about the new efforts for the Lyon House that are currently coming together and he provided me with some great literature about the Lyon House.
Further, Mr. Tesei encouraged me to get involved with the Byram Neighborhood Association.
I think that if Mr. Tesei can bring a more police services to Byram the many other Byram projects will takeoff and flourish.
Mr. Tesei's Legacy may very well be decided on the streets of Byram.
Will the youth gangs and drugs continue to destroy Byram or will there be a Reincarnation in Byram.
If Rudy Giuliani could get rid of the squeegee men and turn around Times Square, then surely Peter Tesie can put an end to alcoholics drinking from open containers and eliminate the high level of crime in Byram.
