04/24/08 - John Thygerson: “We never had a case that had gone through three separate sales attempts.”


This home on Hettiefred Road in Greenwich, Conn., came close to being auctioned off three times as a result of foreclosure actions. But each time, its owner managed to come up with enough cash to rescue his position.

Foreclosure Hits Even Connecticut's Wealthy

New York Times

GREENWICH, Conn. — This wooded town of roughly 60,000 on Long Island Sound — home to dozens of hedge funds, many millionaires and more than a few billionaires — is one of the wealthiest enclaves in the country. But even Greenwich is not immune to the wave of home foreclosures sweeping the nation.

On Hettiefred Road, for example, the owner of a 2,720-square-foot, four-bedroom colonial featuring a luxury kitchen, swimming pool and tennis court, has been threatened with foreclosure for months. On Stanwich Road, another house worth $2.6 million is close to going on the block. Several dozen others have received foreclosure notices this year.

But there is a difference from most other communities. Auctioning off such homes is a far greater challenge here than elsewhere, as affluent but cash-squeezed owners often find ways to delay losing their home, sometimes by coming up with just enough to make last-minute payments, avoiding a final sale — for a while, anyway.

Just ask John Thygerson, who parked his Jeep sport utility vehicle in front of the empty house on Hettiefred Road on the flawless spring day last Saturday. As a foreclosure auctioneer, he was scheduled — for the third time since January — to sell the house. But the owner, a construction business owner who has fallen on hard times, made a last-minute mortgage payment and the foreclosure was postponed yet again.

So Mr. Thygerson was there to shoo prospective buyers off the property, nod at inquisitive neighbors and stake out a new spot for a fourth set of foreclosure signs after the first three had been mysteriously torn down....

....In Greenwich, foreclosure filings were made against 100 homes last year, according to RealtyTrac. That translates into less than half of 1 percent of Greenwich’s 24,511 households, compared with a rate over 1 percent nationwide.

Already one of the richest cities in the country in 2000, when the Census Bureau recorded a median household income of $99,086 — more than double the national average — the town has become far wealthier in recent years, with the exponential growth of many of the hedge funds that have set up business here. A new generation of wealthy Wall Street executives has moved in as well. By 2007, the Connecticut Economic Resources Center reported, the median household income had risen to $122,849, with many homeowners earning far more.

The tearing down of existing homes to make room for new ones has continued despite the mortgage crisis that began last summer. And while prices and sales volume are dropping, Greenwich is not suffering as badly as nearby towns.

Through April 23 this year, 160 co-ops, condos and single-family homes sold, for $290,000 to $30 million. That compares with 240 sales,...

...Similarly, Eileen Pate, a Greenwich lawyer, recently helped one client avoid foreclosure by arranging a short sale with his bank, which agreed to accept payment over time for the difference between the outstanding mortgage and the price the house fetched.

As for the four-bedroom colonial that just avoided going on the block, Zbigniew Skwarek, the 41-year-old owner, came up with his own money to postpone the auction. Court records show he stopped paying on his $1,557,617.77 mortgage on Feb. 1, 2007. But three days before the scheduled auction, he said, he gave his lender, Countrywide Financial, a check for $50,000.

Mr. Skwarek may not live in one of Greenwich’s most coveted neighborhoods. But like many residents here, he owns other properties, including an apartment in Greenwich and a home in Florida, and he can tap into that equity.

“I don’t want to lose this house,” Mr. Skwarek said in a telephone interview.

Mr. Skwarek rented out the house after he divorced his wife, Renata, in 2004, because, he said, it felt too big to live in alone. But last year, he said, his renters, John and Arline Josephberg, stopped paying their monthly rent of $10,000.

While living there, Mr. Josephberg — who previously ran the financial firm Josephberg Grosz & Company — was put on trial, accused of not paying his taxes for 29 years. He was sentenced to 50 months in prison. By the time the couple moved out in January, they owed Mr. Skwarek $90,000. Calls made to Mrs. Josephberg and to the couple’s daughter were not returned....

...A few of Mr. Skwarek’s neighbors can relate to his financial troubles. Two other homes on the same road have appeared in preforeclosure filings in the past year.

Vincent Scorese, who owns a house next door and also faces the risk of foreclosure, moved out and rented out his home after he went through a divorce. He said that as a builder he became overextended and found it difficult to make his mortgage payments on the five properties he owns in the area. So he has put them all up for sale.

“I feel bad for him,” Mr. Scorese said. “So many guys are in trouble, even guys you wouldn’t expect.”...

During training sessions, Girard and Hall will chew out officers when they botch the shooting scenarios, in hope that it might help them make the right choice whether to use their guns.

"If somebody is going to make a bad decision, we much rather they do it here where we can critique it and fix the problem," Girard said.

GHS auditorium opposition grows

By Neil Vigdor Greenwich Time - Staff Writer

Before the curtain ever rises on the renovation of the Greenwich High School auditorium, the project is facing multiple threats from some members of the Representative Town Meeting.

A number of members of the legislative body are balking at the estimated $22 million cost of the project, which includes the renovation of the adjoining music instruction spaces....

...Steve LoParco, who served on the Hamilton Avenue committee while a school board member, called Caldwell's remarks "repugnant."

"It is my belief that Ms. Caldwell is using the makeup of the GHS Auditorium Committee as an excuse to further delay the project, a project that she would rather not have the town undertake," LoParco said.

...First Selectman Peter Tesei, who supports the auditorium renovation, said the prospective committee members were chosen based on the recommendations of school officials and presented to the RTM for vetting well in advance of the project....

Where can all the seniors grow?

Seniors have spoken about what they want as far as their senior center goes. The question remains what exactly to do with the information.

Drugs and kids: Town official proposes a survey

A lack of data and a general apathy toward involvement from students make it difficult for the town to get the kind of read it needs to respond to youth substance abuse issues, Stephanie Paulmeno, the town’s Community Health Planner, told the Board of Health Monday night.

Stanwich School: State OKs new site for leaching field

Plans for the Stanwich School will see another round at the Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Agency (IWWA) as the relocation of the proposed leaching field has been approved by the state’s Department of Environmental Protection.

Where will Glenville School go? Board decision tonight

After close to two months of discussion, the school board will vote tonight on where Glenville School students will spend the next two years.

A renovation of Glenville School, which is projected to keep students out of the building for up to two years, is on track to begin in July.

The Board of Education will decide between two options for Glenville at its 7 p.m. meeting at Riverside School.

The first option is to remediate existing modular classrooms at Western Middle School, which two experts have said can be done. Mold was found in them in February, leading the students of Hamilton Avenue School, who were occupying them, to be dispersed throughout the district for the rest of the year.

According to district findings, the mold did not contaminate any of the areas students used, and last week, Steven Susca, a project engineer with Hoffman Architects, told the board that removing the modulars’ soffits, where the mold was discovered, would “solve 95% of our issues.”...

Teachers Should Get Ready To Return To The Contaminated Modular Classrooms

Quote:


"So you guys can stay at the modular and do your thing," Hamilton Avenue School parent Mina Bibeault said.

Headline:

Parents opposed to sending students back into the modular classrooms tell Greenwich Board Of Education that students should switch buildings with incompetent town employees at Town Hall and with the high paid school administration failures at the Havemeyer Building.

Story:

Frustrations bubbled up at last night's meeting with Glenville School parents as Board of Education officials outlined two possible relocation options for students.

One possibility was to remediate the mold at the Hamilton Avenue School modular building so that it could be reused for Glenville School students. But that option appeared to grate on some parents....

....The second option, which would be to rip up parts of the Western Greenwich Civic Center property to create a place for trailers, parking spaces and bus drop-off and pick-up zones, also met with skepticism. One problem is that the plans would turn a playing field into a drainage basin for the new paved areas, consultants said.

"The field does get compromised in this plan," said Rob Brunetti, a construction consultant...

...the school district is facing timing issues, with no room for any delays for school to start on time.

"There's a lot of risk in this plan," said Brunetti, adding that in the most optimistic case, the civic center would be ready for Aug. 20.

In the case of remediating the modular, the school district's experts outlined a plan that would have the project take at least four months, including six weeks to develop detailed plans and put them out to bid. In that scenario, rough cost estimates place the project at $1 million, compared with the $2 million cost of re-tooling the civic center...

Courageous Jackie Steinman doesn't want her and her school mates to be put in contaminated modular classrooms, nor does she want her school split up all over town.

Fearless Jackie Steinman probably doesn't want to see Glenville School children suffer from headaches, prolonged sinus infections in the contaminated temporary modular classrooms.

Surely, the daring Jackie Stienman doesn't want to see her Glenville School teachers complaining of about headaches, nausea, and respiratory problems.

04/24/08 - performing from coast to coast and internationally. Poppy Fields has been doing stand-up comedy for close to 13 years now


Poppy Fields got her name from one of the characters in her act. When the character became so popular she started getting checks in her name, she legally changed it so she could cash the checks.

Greenwich comedienne draws from her own life for laughs

Most women wouldn’t use years of competing on the beauty pageant circuit as a chance to break into stand-up comedy. But, as anyone would quickly find out, Greenwich resident Poppy Fields isn’t like the others.

Saying she once was a shy girl who was always taken advantage of, Ms. Fields has put that behind her to embrace a career in comedy. Her skits tell about everything from dating misadventures to a botched Botox job to a life that saw her start out as a ring card girl at boxing matches while still in her teens and from working for MC Hammer to finding success making people laugh.

Being in beauty contests didn’t suit Ms. Fields, who said she developed a lifelong aversion to competitions because of them. When she began throwing up before every pageant, she knew she it was time to get out, Ms. Fields joked. Since her talent was always telling jokes and she liked connecting with an audience, she knew exactly in which direction she wanted to take her career.

“I always liked being able to jump up on stage and do my jokes,” said Ms. Fields, who cites Roseanne Barr, Phyllis Diller and Richard Pryor as some of her biggest influences.....


...
Ms. Fields was recently a contestant in Treehouse Comedy Productions and Xtreme Comedy’s Funniest Comic in Connecticut contest, which holds its finals Saturday at Trinity on Main in New Britain. But though she’s been in contests her whole life, Ms. Fields isn’t a big fan of having comics compete against each other.

“I actually hate it,” Ms. Fields said. “Being in a contest for comedy just isn’t my idea of comedy. I like comedy as something I enjoy doing. When you put it in a contest setting it’s like you’re fighting for something other than being yourself. I don’t like contests, period.”

Ms. Fields also is a member of the Screen Actors Guild, with numerous credits, including appearances on The Sopranos, The Chris Rock Show, and Late Night With Conan O’Brien and a recurring role on As the World Turns. She said acting is similar to stand-up in some ways.

“You have to be able to give it up,” Ms. Fields said. “You can’t go up there and be afraid.”
