Sullivan's Draft Date Four Days Away

by Tim Parry

Former Greenwich All-American John Sullivan will hear his name called on the first day of the NFL Draft on Saturday. The question of course is this: Which team will invest in the Notre Dame center's future? ...

...Here's Sullivan's draft profile from NFL.com. One tab praises him as a cerebral center who had some of the best combine scores in the vertical jump and the 20-yard shuttle. And I'm sure a kid as smart as him aced the Wunderlich test.

Then the next tab says he's a kid who may have already peaked as an athlete, and may be overrated...

04/22/08 - Reader Comments About The Typos

Spell Check Is Impotent

Hello GR,

In the "About us" section on the left hand side, in the middle where you talk about how "it is important that the residents of Greenwich to practice critical and discriminating reading It is a skill that crucial in trying to discern the realities behind all the reporting and rhetoric that is written about the village", you need a period between "reading" and "It".

Also, I believe the first "to" is not needed. I didn't read the rest of the section, but I'm guessing you will want to proofread it to ensure no other typos.



Dear dz,

The corrections have been made.

Thank you so much for the help.

I have one eye and I type by hunting and pecking on the computer keyboard.

I sincerely appreciate your help.

04/22/08 - Reader Submitted Comments About Earth Day

Dear Greenwich Roundup,

Today is Earth Day, a day to remember the fact that our stewardship of this planet is the primary legacy we will leave all of our children.

As Jim Himes argues in an opinion piece in today's Connecticut Post, now is the time for us to act decisively to ensure that our state is a leader in green collar jobs, and that our children have the opportunity to live in a healthy and sustainable world.

The citizens of Greenwich need to act together in order to face this huge challenge.

Please take a minute now and invite your friends, neighbors, and family to join in this collective effort.


We in Greenwich, all realize that the health of our planet is an issue that affects every aspect of our lives, and which deserves our attention every single day.

We are mired in a financial mess brought on by Bush-Shays economic policies and mired in a disastrous war brought on by Bush-Shays foreign policy.

And there are other huge challenges on the horizon, so many of which are tied to climate change, our nation's energy policy, and our planet's very survival.

The time to act is now. If we are going to make progress, we need more allies on our team, we need people from Greenwich to help spread the word.

Can you think of a co-worker, neighbor, friend, or family member who cares as much as you do about our country's future - our economy, our planet?

Please forward today's Op-Ed to them and ask them to join the team:



A Greenwich citizen that is concerned about the

economy and the environment

But now I see on the bottle that Ozarka is a Nestle product and that Nestle is located in Greenwich, Conn. There isn't anybody in Greenwich, Conn., who knows how to bait a hook.

The other thing that gets me about bottled water is the way they list the "Nutritional Facts" on the bottle. Nutrition? What nutrition? But pick up your bottle of Dasani, a Coca-Cola product, and you'll notice that it says it has zero percent total fat, zero calories, zero percent sodium, zero percent total carbs, and zero grams of protein.

Why bother putting this on there? Of course it doesn't have anything in it. It's freakin' water. If it had anything in it, it would be a martini.

GHS senior travels down a culinary road

By Hoa Nguyen
Greenwich Time - Staff Writer

When she's not playing ice hockey, Samantha Spezzano is in the kitchen testing new recipes and baking up a storm...

Spezzano, who works part-time at the Black Forest Pastry Shop in Greenwich, is allergic to nuts. Her dream is to open up her own bakery one day where she would specialize in nut-free pastries.

"You can make anything from food and I love that," she said...

...Her boss, at the bakery, Herb Mueller, 37, a second-generation shop owner who grew up in Riverside with the goal of taking over his parents' place, said he is unsure whether he would recommend the career to someone else.

"Some people don't realize there's a lot of work involved in making cakes," he said, adding that the most important characteristic for a budding pastry chef is to be passionate about baking. "She seems to be so I say, 'Hey go for it. Do it while you're young.' "

04/22/08 - The CEO dubbed 'Fred the Shred' for his cost-cutting habit escapes the firing line - for now.

At RBS you can keep your job even if you help wreak the economy and write down 12 Billion in losses

RBS chief gets off scot-free


(Fortune) -- Even in the pathetic pantheon of subprime mortgage losers, Royal Bank of Scotland stands out.

The Edinburgh, Scotland-based bank joined three other titans of global finance - Citi (C, Fortune 500) and Merrill Lynch (MER, Fortune 500) of the United States and Swiss bank UBS (UBS) - in being forced to raise costly new capital after reporting mortgage-related losses reaching into the double-digit billions of dollars. RBS (RBS) said Monday that its latest quarter would reflect nearly $12 billion in writedowns tied to the global credit crunch. Following the script written by its struggling rivals, Royal Bank of Scotland then went out and raised a huge slug of new capital - $23.9 billion worth - at prices far below even the bank's steeply depressed trading price.

But in a bizarre break with the Merrill-Citi-UBS model, in which top execs who oversaw disastrous mortgage investments were forced to resign, Royal Bank of Scotland is standing behind the management team that led the firm into this morass. This despite the fact that the writedowns come just two months after RBS chief Fred Goodwin told investors he didn't expect to have to raise new capital this year through share issuances. Indeed, the board rebuffed Goodwin's offer to resign ...

The bank's RBS Greenwich Capital unit, acquired back in 2000 when RBS gobbled up U.K. banker Natwest, spent the middle years of this decade beefing up its issuance of collateralized debt obligations...

...Now, Goodwin is planning to sell the firm's insurance business in a bid to raise even more money and narrow the Royal Bank's focus. And even in the wake of the massive writedowns and humbling capital-raising terms, he insisted on a conference call this week that he's playing a strong hand. "There won't be a fire-sale," he said.

But as RBS shareholders know all too well, Fred Goodwin has been wrong before.

04/22/08 - See The Channel 2 Video - Fakes Allowing Many Access To Exclusive Waterfront

Police in Greenwich, Conn., are scratching their heads as they try to figure out who is running a counterfeit beach pass ring that is allowing people access to exclusive waterfront property. (WCBS)

Beach Pass Counterfeiting Perplexes Greenwich Cops (Video Report)


Reporting Tony Aiello

, Conn. You've heard of counterfeit money and counterfeit luxury goods. How about counterfeit beach passes?

It's happening in Connecticut, where cops say someone is making and apparently selling those highly coveted beach passes that are one of the perks of living in America's wealthiest town.

It's quiet now, but come Memorial Day crowds will head back to the beach at Greenwich Point, where attendants will have to be more vigilant than ever now that cops have learned someone has been counterfeiting these coveted passes and making fake permits....

...Beach passes and parking permits are one of the perks of living in Greenwich. For years, the town fought to keep non-residents off the beach – until a court ordered the town to allow them to visit.

But non-residents pay a fee for the privilege -- $5 to enter and $20 to park.

So having a counterfeit pass and parking permit could save hundreds of dollars.

Greenwich Police have a great piece of evidence in this case -- a folder containing copies of counterfeit passes, and the name of the alleged person behind the counterfeiting ring....

...."We are still reaching out to other individuals to get their assistance as well as try to document enough information to give to the prosecutors' office where they feel comfortable going forward with a criminal charge," said. Lt. Daniel Allen.

Whoever has been making fake versions of these passes soon may find it's a real crime.

Real beach passes have a bar code on them, but beach attendant's are not equipped with a bar code reader....

Please read comments about this issue:

Cathy says:

Their all a bunch of snobs....Boo-freakin-hoo! So someone might want to use your beaches who don't live there.

So what? If they are willing to pay for a pass,let them.

I understand there are fake passes out there,and for the person who alledgedly made them,why do you have an attorney? You have something to hide?? I guess you do.

Jack says:

Go after the real criminals who break in our homes and kill us,the beach belongs to everyone.

Joan says:

Greenwich residents pay taxes for beach upkeep and the people using fake passes do not.

The beach belong to every one at the high water mark. You can walk the beach at that point by following the coast line.It was done many years ago by activist Ned Coll from Hartford. He marched a group of people along the coast to prove that point.

Bruce says:

The fact is the very rich have bought up the Conn. coastline.

As a child my family used to rent a cottage for at least 20 years until it was sold to some guy from NY.

It was bulldozed; a mansion on the water went up and such is the case over and over.

We are supposed to just be good little middle class serfs and be happy about our $3.79 gas also.

Middle Greenwich says:

I can sort of understand why Port Chester and other Westchester residents would want access since their towns don't have a beach but why is that Stamford residents are the ones who want access?

Aren't Stamford beaches good enough for them? Everyone keeps pointing fingers at Greenwich but the real snobs are the Stamford residents who think their city and beaches are beneath them and full of riff-raff and want to go to Greenwich for everything because they are sad, miserable poseurs who want to avoid their own beaches and neighbors.

Anon says:

The point here is counterfeit beach passes. People are using them knowingly to avoid paying for the use of the beach. Batman or Bruce Wayne,please be a good little boy and put your cape and batmobile away and I''l let you use my beach pass.

Alexis says:

if you do some homework you can find information about similar lawsuits up and down the coast, the cities and towns lose because the old laws on the books preserve the coastline for everyone to use. not just the residents of that neighborhood or town.

that is why the Rye town beach didn't fight it years ago.

having said that, the counterfeiters will be found out eventually. people are not that good at keeping secrets.

Russ Says:

I think you can find snobs anywhere you go.

The people who were caught with the counterfeit passes should be prosecuted to the FULL extent of the law. Hit 'em with fraud, larceny & tresspassing charges....see how long they refuse to be questioned by police when they have a couple thousand in fines hanging over their heads!

04/22/08 - Son Of The Beach Lawsuit - The Nightmare Continues - Michael Bocchino Wants The Single Family Home Owners To Pay For Another Lawsuit!!!

Swimmers might need more than a bathing suit or water wings to take a dip in a proposed community pool in Byram.

Swimmers might need more than a bathing suit or water wings to take a dip in a proposed community pool in Byram.

A driver's license or other proof of residency could be required if some elected officials and neighborhood leaders get their way. A number of them have endorsed a residents-only policy at the pool or one favoring residents, rekindling an old debate over access to public recreation facilities in Greenwich.

The issue of nonresidents flocking to the pool, which would be built with public and private funds in Byram Park, has come up recently in the Representative Town Meeting, as well as in the neighborhood. Some who favor the residents-only policy said that a bus route serving neighboring Port Chester stops in front of the park.

"There's no reason why we can't restrict this pool from any outside individuals or residents," said Michael Bocchino, president of the Byram Neighborhood Association.

In a landmark case decided by state Supreme Court, the town's residents-only policy for entering public beaches was ruled unconstitutional in 2001, subjecting Greenwich to national criticism and ridicule. The town is again mired in litigation over the beach-access policy it adopted after the ruling.....

...irst Selectman Peter Tesei said he would oppose any efforts to restrict access at the new pool.

"I don't share their sentiments," Tesei said. "They should look carefully at our recent history. Somehow, they must have been asleep for a period of time in that we have a policy of open access to our beaches that provides for nonresidents to use them so long as they're paying the noncardholder fee."...

....Selectman Lin Lavery, who has played a leading role in developing the proposal, said she envisioned the pool being for the community when she advocated the project during her campaign last year.

"I think the pool should be for the Greenwich residents to swim in outside, in the sunshine in the fresh water," Lavery said.

At the same time, Lavery said she was cognizant of the lawsuit and history involving nonresident access to town recreation facilities. She said she supported allowing nonresidents to buy daily admission passes to use the pool.

"If my children come to visit, I would love to buy them a day pass," Lavery said.
