Greenwich Millionaire Murder Mystery Case




Hartford Courant


Associated Press


STAMFORD, Conn. - A lawyer for the widow of slain Greenwich real-estate developer Andrew Kissel says a Superior Court judge has thrown out half of the claims filed against her in a lawsuit by two insurance companies.


Andrew Kissel was killed in 2006 just days before he was scheduled to plead guilty to forging documents to obtain more than $16 million in loans from banks and mortgage companies.


Stamford attorney David Rubin says Judge John Blawie on Monday threw out claims that Hayley Wolff Kissel aided and abetted her husband by not telling anyone about the crimes.


A six-person jury must still decide whether she was "unjustly enriched."


The lawsuit was filed by Fidelity National Title Insurance and Chicago Title Insurance companies, which had issued title insurance to several banks that gave Andrew Kissel mortgages.

The Greenwich Board Of Education Takes A Different Approach ......

Greenwich Gossip

Betty Sternberg Gets a Raise?!

By Bill "The Scribe Of Greenwich" Clark

Well, a "performance" bonus, at least. Yes, dear reader, incredible as it sounds, the Board of Ed voted Betty a salary bonus of $3,500 by a vote of 6-2. At least one of the negative votes came from someone who thought the bonus should have been larger.

At this point, Betty's salary and benefit package is reported to be in excess of $290,000 per year. That's almost $25,000 a month, dear reader. About $6,000 a week. Well more than a thousand dollars a day. And for this we get falling test scores, construction cost overruns, two homeless elementary schools, unprecedented dissatisfaction and unrest among teachers and townspeople, and no end in sight to any of it. What's wrong with this equation?

Your scribe will never understand why the Board of Ed doesn't bite the bullet and simply fire Betty. It would have saved the taxpayers of this Town well over half a million dollars and incalculable anguish if the Board had just left the position vacant for these past two years.

But now they have given her a bonus, and apparently plan to keep her around to wreak more havoc for a third year. What's the old phrase about putting the inmates in charge of the asylum? Sounds like a pretty good metaphor for what's going on in Greenwich these days....

10/06/08 Congress Drags Dick Fuld Out Of His North Street Compound And Forces Him To Testify




Early this morning, former Lehman Brothers CEO Richard Fuld woke up in his sprawling Greenwich manse, pulled off his footie pajamas, gargled, and plucked the errant hairs descending over his brow in preparation for his first public appearance since September 10, five days before Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy. He was due to testify in front of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform at 10 a.m. this morning, where he would be expected to defend himself against allegations that the firm misled clients and investors about the extent of its losses in the days leading up to its declaration of bankruptcy — and it was fair to say he had butterflies, in particular about that time his CFO told investors they wouldn't be seeking extra capital because "our capital position at the moment is strong" the day after they'd decided internally they needed to raise $3 billion dollars. That would be awkward.


Meanwhile, down in Washington, D.C., committee chair Henry Waxman bounded out of bed. He'd been looking forward to this all weekend. "We need to understand why Lehman failed and who should be held accountable," he'd written in an e-mailed statement the day before. The company's implosion "sparked a financial crisis on Wall Street that is causing massive economic disruption … The taxpayers are being asked to pay $700 billion to bail out Wall Street. They are entitled to know who caused the meltdown and what reforms are needed." Waxman opened his secret closet. He regarded the lube, nipple clamps, and baseball bat, and smiled ruefully, then closed the door. Not this time. This time, words would have to be enough. The hearings "are all about rich people getting money," Congressman Darrell Issa explained to Bloomberg. "Henry Waxman hates rich people."

Breaking News


Posted 12:11 p.m. Monday, Oct. 6, 2008

Police are investigating the death of a local man after a car accident on Sheephill Road Sunday night.


The victim’s identity has not been released pending the notification of family, but Public Information Officer Lt. Daniel Allen told the Post this morning that he was a 20-year-old town resident who had been traveling on a bicycle when he was hit by a car. Lt. Allen would not comment on any more specifics because of the ongoing investigation.

According to police reports, a 911 call was received at 11:46 p.m. Sunday night reporting an accident involving a car and a pedestrian on Sheephill Road north Sound Beach Avenue Extension. Police, paramedics and the fire department all responded to the scene and reports state police found the man lying on the shoulder of Sheephill Road “obviously deceased.”


Police said another man, who identified himself as the driver, was found standing nearby. The driver’s name has not been released yet. The state’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner took possession of the body and an autopsy will be performed to determine the exact cause of death.


A criminal investigation is underway by the police department’s Traffic Division. The division’s Collision Reconstruction Unit responded to the scene and Sheephill Road was closed between Sound Beach Avenue Extension and Old Orchard Road from midnight until 8 a.m. this morning to allow investigators full access to the scene.


Lt. Allen said that while the investigation is a criminal one because of the fatality, the driver won’t necessarily face charges. That will be determined by the investigation.

10/06/08 The Black Fives Drops In On David McCullough At The Greenwich Library




By Claude Johnson


The title of David McCullough’s sold out lecture last night in the Cole Auditorium at Greenwich Public Library was “You Are What You Read.” The lecture, which was free to the public, was part of our local library’s Distinguished Lecture Series, made possible by the generous contributions of private donors.


McCullough is exceptional, of course. He’s one of the most successful and honored historians of all time. He’s a best-selling author who’s won the Pulitzer Prize twice, and who has so many other awards and accomplishments that one could write a whole book about the guy.


Speaking for an hour and a half, McCullough covered all kinds of topics.


He discussed his book, John Adams, and the context in which our Founding Fathers operated insofar as the role of books, intellect, and honor.


He reviewed how books have changed people’s lives.


He shared some thoughts and observations about President Truman, the first and only president who didn’t go to college, but who was more well-read than any president of the last century.


He believes our leaders should be readers, and that our presidents ought to be smart and well-read because they have to explain ....

DAVID WARNER


Staff report

David Warner, editor of Greenwich Time and The Advocate, resigned on Friday.

"My wife and I have been yearning to return to our home in the Philadelphia area," Warner said.

Warner has been the editor of both newspapers since June, and has overseen many changes during his editorship.

In his short time here, Dave instilled some new disciplines in the planning and graphics of our papers, both of which I am certain we will continue," said Greenwich Time and The Advocate Publisher John Dunster. "I understand Dave's decision and wish him and his wife, Lil, nothing but the best."

The newspapers will be commencing a search for Warner's replacement.

"I have confidence that the editorial teams at both The Advocate and Greenwich Time will continue their long tradition of producing outstanding newspapers for our communities," Dunster added. .... Blah ..... blah ..... blah ...... blah ......
For 4 Months Greenwich Roundup has been on David Warners rear end and Hearst Media Big Shot George Irish and Greenwich Time Publisher John Dunster have been listening as Greenwich Roundup was the main voice in Greenwich making the case that David Warner has made a bad newspaper worse ......

Hearst Media Publisher George Irish
And Editor David Warner Are Once Again

Treating Greenwich Time Website Users Like
A Red Headed Step Child

For the longest time Greenwich web surfers were so frustrated with the Greenwich Time's lazy web master who contantly had trouble getting things up.

They would log on at 6 AM and see yesterday's news.
They would log on at 7 AM and see yesterday's news
They would log on at 8 AM and see yesterday's news
They would log on at 9 AM and see yesterday's news

Many times they were waitinguntil 10, 11 or even after noontime for the Greenwich Time web master to hit the send button and update the Greenwich Time website.

The thing that make Greenwich web surfers the so angry is that they knew that at about 10 PM of the pervious night the enire Greenwich Time was digitized and sent to Bridgeport to be printed.

The content was digital all the web master had to do was hit the send button to post the digitized articles. When Hearst Media Publisher George Irish And Editor David Warner took over the newspaper they agreed with the Greenwich Time website users and changes were made.

The website started posting updates and breaking news through out the news day and most of the Greenwich Time articles was posted by 1 AM in the morning.

But then the Greenwich time started steping back away from the providing it's website users with improved service. First there were few and few updates and the bulk of the news stories started to be posted at 2:30 AM in the morning.

Then the majority of the news articles are posted when ever the reporters and the web master happen to show up for work. Sometimes Greenwich Time website users must wait while the webmaster waits for the coffee to brew.

Even, If David Warner Folds The Greenwich Time

Into The Connecticut Post

He Is Still Going To Need The Internet
To Save These Combined Newspapers.
For months I have been warning Greenwich Time readers that there is a very good chance that The Greenwich Time will probably soon be a Riverside News Bureau Of A Greatly Expanded Connecticut Post.

I know there are a few soon to be converted subscribers that think the Greenwich Time is healthy as a back country horse, but have they looked at the Greenwich Time Real Estate web page lately.

It's been combined with the Connecticut Post, Stamford Advocate and Norwalk Advocate real estate pages.

The page doesn't even have the Greenwich Time Green in the header anymore. It's kind of like a Norwalk Advocate RED now.

Have you also seen how the has all of a sudden, your Greenwich Time Events Calendar became kind of a Coneticut Postish, sort of like a Fairfeild County - Events Calender?

Is it possible that web news articles come out earlier at the Connecticut Post for a reason?
Why do Greenwich Time web users get a couple of stories that were ready at 10:00 PM at 2:30 AM and then a few more 10 hours later in the day.

When Is The Greenwich Time Going To Wake Up And Notice That All of the New York Daily Newspapers put their news up on the web as it happens, there is no 12 to 24 hour web delay.
In fact, the New York Times earns half of it's profits on it web properties

Stamford Advocate



By David Y. Warner

....David Warner is probably not aware of the Greenwich Times long history of censorship in town.....



Please read:






Previously, I had commented on these stories on the Stamford Advocate website and let their confused readers know that I had the images discussed on my website. However, my comments seem to not be appearing on the Stamford Advocate website anymore ....






......An ostrich with its head deep-buried in the sand would have been an apt image of Yellowwich Time. There was a rumor circulating for many years that the paper was published in the basement of Town Hall, so that all the bent or incompetent politicians could censor everything before it was printed.
And woe betide anyone who dared to question the status quo or rock the boat in Town; all the blunderbusses of the illiterate reporting and editorial staffs would be leveled at him or her in a effort to belittle, discredit, and smear the offender. In this town in those days it was lockstep or nothing.Which is why your scribe once told Bill Rowe, the then-owner of the rag, that the paper should change its masthead color from green to yellow. Why, he wanted to know? So that it would reflect the color of the journalism you publish, replied your scribe.
Rowe walked off in a huff; and from that day forward the Local Rag has adamantly refused to publish anything written by your scribe - who had thitherto been one of the more popular letter writers in Town.

.....And There Are Many Many More Instances.However, If Greenwich residents would like to comment about local issues they can do it with out the heavy hand of David Warner here....





08/14/08 WAKE UP GREENWICH TIME!!! Where is the coverage? Greenwich Time Reporters Are Out-To-Lunch!!!!!


Here's the HOTTEST STORY of the Summer - now attracting global attention, with hordes of German, Austrian & Swiss press (among other European media) arriving in Boston to cover the Crockafellah Case - and local Greenwich Time reporters are busy reading the Lands' End Fall catalog.
WAKE UP!

It's Not That The Greenwich Time Reporters Are Too Lazy To Go Out And Cover The Story
It's That They Just Don't Give A Damn

******************************************************* .

It is A Damn Shane That Christopher Chichester, Christopher Crowe, Christopher Montbatten, Clark Rockefeller or Whatever He Is Calling Himself Today, Did Not Send Out A Press Release To The Greenwich Time Editor.

Then The Greenwich Time Could Have Ran Mr. Crockafellah's Press Release Through The Spell Checker Before Publishing It On The Web.

At Least Greenwich Time Readers Would Not Have To Learn About What The Crockafellah Did In Greenwich On....

The Geraldo Rivera Show!!!!

It's Up To Citizen Journalists And Local Bloggers To Step Up To The Plate And Crack Greeneich Crockafellah Story Wide Open For The Greenwich Time

1) ''JOHN DOE" (aka Christopher Chichester, Christopher Crowe, Christopher Montbatten, Clark Rockefeller, etc.) arrived in the Tri-State area sometime around May 1985. Using numerous aliases, "JOHN DOE" reportedly lived & frequented & worked in the vicinity of Greenwich CT in the late 1980s. Investigators said at the time that "JOHN DOE" was a con man who often "surfaces in affluent neighborhoods and mingles in social circles by making friends with wealthy influential people. He often volunteers for good causes like raising money for charity," a sheriff's press release said at the time. For example, he was seen at the Indian Harbor Yacht Club, and probably attended a highly-regarded Protestant church.

2) Among numerous residences occupied under a variety of pretexts & aliases, "CROWE" may have lived near/on LOCH LANE at some point in the late 80s. In this period, he reportedly drove a '65 Chevy and perhaps garaged another vehicle - a WHITE PICKUP TRUCK (1984? model) - somewhere in the Tri-State area. LA Police are especially interested to know anything about this vehicle, where it was parked or garaged, etc.3) Please examine the WANTED! poster and if you have any detailed information about this individual, his whereabouts or activities in Connecticut between 1985-89, please contact LASD police immediately, at (323)890-5500 to speak with Sgts Bobby Taylor or Timothy Miley regarding Case# 094-00061-3199-011.http://www.insidesocal.com/sgvcrime/2008/08/chichester-rockefeller-the-wan.html
It's Time For Greenwich Time Editor David Warner
To Wake Up!!!!

When is David Warner, the new Greenwich Time Editor, going to get some reporters with the journalistic balls to cover NATIONAL news stories about Greenwich.
David Warner, previously metro editor of The Rockford (Ill.) Register Star and his reporters have to read about Greenwich Crockafellah Case in the Boston Herald and the Boston Globe.
Warner has also been deputy metro editor of The Detroit News and these reporters have to read about the Greenwich Crockafellah Case in the International Herald Tribune and the Times Of London.
Mr. Warner was editor of the Trentonian in Trenton, N.J. and they have to read about the Greenwich Crockafellah Case in the New York and Los Angeles Times.
Would David Warner Have Ignored The Greenwich Crockafellah Case if he was still the city editor of the Philadelphia Daily News; or the editor of the Daily Local News in West Chester, Pa?
Surely, David Warner would not have sat on the Greenwich Crockafellah Case when he was the city editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Why can't all of the reporters at these papers read what their old boss thinks about the Greenwich Crockafellah Case.However. all of these reporters can go and see how a real editor covers the local, national and international angles of the Crockafellah Case if they were to checkout a real newspaperman like Frank Girardot who is not only an editor but a working journalist who is willing to get his hands dirty.

Please Take A Look At:

FRANK GIRARDOT's

With All Of The Money That Greenwich Has And All Of The Money That Greenwich Businesses Pay For Display Ads In THE GREENWICH TIME You Would Think This Town Could Afford A Newspaper Editor With The Caliber Of A Frank Girardot.
It Is Time For Greenwich Time Editor David Warner To Come Out Of His Self Induced Coma!!!
I wouldn't even bother sending it to the clueless David Warner.
Perhaps, you would have a better shot of having your story published if your rememberances published if you contacted a meganewspaper like the Los Angeles Times, New York Times Or Boston Herald.

07/11/08 You Wont See This In The Greenwich Time - Failed Board Of Educaion Gives Our Children Facilities like this - Glenville School Bathroom Pics

Look at these reader submitted pictures of a Glenville School restroom.
How can Greenwich Time school reporter Hoa Nguyen ignore these school conditions?

Hoa Nguyen and the Greenwich Time are always ignoring the conditions that small inocent children of Western Greenwich must endure.

For over a year the parents of Hamilton Avenue school complained bitterly to the Greenwich media and to school officials about the deplorable conditions at Hamilton Avenue School modular classrooms.

For over one year the complacent mainstream media failed listen to the parents concerns about their children's substandard school facilities.

There was nothing from the Greenwich Citizen
There was nothing from the Greenwich Post
There was nothing from WGCH

Reporter Hoa Nguyen and the Greenwich Time repeatedly failed to report about the Hamilton Avenue School parents complaints about substandard facilities and how it was affecting their children.

Form March off 2007 until the Greenwich Board
of Education March 2008 press release there was
not one Greenwich Time story on the conditions
inside the Hamilton Avenue modular classrooms.

In February of 2008, when a Hamilton Avenue parent complained to Greenwich Roundup about the poorly maintained modular Hamilton Avenue classrooms their story was up on the internet with in 24 hours.

Week after week Greenwich Roundup, with the help of Hamilton Avenue Parents, exposed the misdeeds of school officials until the Hamilton Avenue School classrooms were closed on
March 2. 2008.

Please see:

The board of education was forced to close the contaminated modular classrooms on March 2nd of this year, because Hamilton Avenue School parents came to Greenwich Roundup.

Unfortunately, it appears that Hoa Nguyen and the Greenwich Time doesn't care that....
The heartless Greenwich Board Of Education wants to take the Glenville school children out of the Hell hole, known as Glenville School, and put them into the contaminated modular classrooms.......

........Why These small little children should not be treated this way, just because they are some of the less fortunate members of Greenwich society.Shame on the Greenwich Time for it's repeated failure for not publishing pictures of actual conditions in Western Greenwich Schools.
It is time for David Warner, the new editor and chief, of the Greenwich Time to put an end to complacent reporting at his paper.Please click on this link to see more pictures:

Also Shame on the Greenwich Building Department and the Greenwich Department of Health for allowing these deplorable school conditions to exist !!!!

It's Time To Beat The Press

Bill Clark at Greenwich Gossip is 100% right when he calls our local rag of a daily newspaper the "Yellowwich Time".Time and time again Greenwich Gossip, Greenwich Round up and other blogs has have demonstrated that the Greenwich Time has had a poor history of truth-telling and fact-reporting.
For far to long the Greenwich Time has bought in to the mythology that we live in a town where nothing nasty or dishonest or untoward ever occurs.And the Greenwich
Time's new editor David Warner is keeping the paper's policy that, their readers certainly don't want to know about anything bad happening in town."
Bill Clark at Greenwich Gossip sums it up this way....
"An ostrich with its head deep-buried in the sand would have been an apt image of Yellowwich Time. There was a rumor circulating for many years that the paper was published in the basement of Town Hall, so that all the bent or incompetent politicians could censor everything before it was printed. And woe betide anyone who dared to question the status quo or rock the boat in Town; all the blunderbusses of the illiterate reporting and editorial staffs would be leveled at him or her in a effort to belittle, discredit, and smear the offender."In this town in those days it was lockstep or nothing.
Town residents are wondering if David Warner have the leadership skills to change the incestuous relationship that Greenwich reporters have with the local power structure?
Maybe David Warner should get rid of one of his Greenwich Time reporters and hire Bill Clark of Greenwich Gossip to report on the underbelly of Greenwich Society.
Mr. Warner please take a few moments and read Mr. Clark's recent posts:


Where's The News????

The Greenwich Time Is Having Trouble Updating It's News Web Site First The Greenwich Time did not put any news up for over 33 hours.

The Greenwich Time has went from bad to worse ever since David Warner took over as Editor and Chief.



Nothing Happened In Greenwich

On-line Greenwich News Junkies Woke Up Sunday Morning To Discover That All Three Greenwich News Web SitesHad Not Been Updated.....
.....Can Someone Please Just Shoot All The Greenwich Time Web Site Visitors And Put Them Out Of Their Misery.
The Geniuses At The Greenwich Time Just Had Two Reporters Post Write And Post A Feature Article about a riding a motor scooter and labelled it "local news".Is this a
hard hitting NEWSPAPER or a local magazine with feature stories?....
It looks like Greenwich Time reporters would rather repost feature articles about an event that happened 25 years ago, instead of telling it's readers about over a half a dozen Greenwich Police Officers drawing their guns and arresting five gang members in down town Greenwich!!!!
The Greenwich Time would rather show it's readers a picture of Lt. Cochran standing next to a replacement bridge, instead of having a picture of the Police Lieutenant standing next to the bats, knives and other weapons taken away from the riotous gang members on Davis Avenue.
The Greenwich Time Has Went From Bad To Worse Since David Warner Became The New Editor.

Free Weekly Newspapers And Out Of Town Daily Newspapers Have Repeatedly Scooped The Greenwich Time

The Greenwich Time Web Site Updates Are Less Frequent.

And Now The Greenwich Time Web Page Is Full Of Reposted Fluff Pieces.Who has ever heard of three articles on a 25 year old event being reposted to fill six news slots on the main page of a daily newspaper's web site.

The Greenwich Time News Web Site Is Becoming The Laughing Stock Of The Internet Ever Since David Warner Became Editor And Chief.



When is David Warner, the new Greenwich Time editor going to crack down on the one sided and incomplete reporting that plagues the Greenwich Time. Did David Warner, allow crappy reporting like this in The Rockford (Ill.) Register Star...



In this incomplete story, the Greenwich Time only got a comment from a Board Of Education Board member and got nothing from Local 136.Greenwich Time readers to this amateurish Greenwich Time report don't know if teachers aides will still have to contribute up to 15 percent of their salary toward health care premiums.

Greenwich Time readers don't know if school aides will still have a decrease in sick days from 15 days to five days.Greenwich Time readers don't know if the school aides will still only have a single 30-minute unpaid lunch break.

The Greenwich Time reporters have repeatedly short changed the teacher's aides, by constantly taking Board of Education press releases and running them through the spell checker, before publication.Hoa Nguyen's report is almost non-news.

Hopefully, this report will be updated later or a second more complete report will be submitted by Ms. Nguyen or a reporter more knowledgeable about the labor dispute.

How can David Warner, who has also been deputy metro editor of The Detroit News; editor of the Trentonian in Trenton, N.J.; city editor of the Philadelphia Daily News; editor of the Daily Local News in West Chester, Pa.; and city editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette put up with such bad journalism?
UPDATE:

Thursday June 12, 2008 Hoa Nguyen DiscoversThere Are Always At Least Two Sides To A News StoryHoa Resubmits His StoryTo The Greenwich Time Readers

WOW, Hoa Lynn Mason, the union's business manager knows so much more about this story than School Board Member Steve Anderson who would not comment on the details of the agreement.

See, Hoa if you had talked to Ms. Mason yesterday you would have the beginings of a real news story and not a Non-News story of Mr. Anderson basically saying no comment.

Hoa, Yesterday's story made you look kind of like a reporter that was too lazy to pick up the phone to get all sides of a news story.You know what they say Hoa...."Every story has at least three sides."Hoa your second attempt at real reporting is much better, but it is still very incomplete.
Maybe you could get some input and quotes from parents. That would really help round out the story.
Hoa, if you want to be a real reporter you need to talk to all the stakeholders in a news story.
Hoa a real reporter would get on the phone and call up some Representative Town Meeting members who must approve this deal between the Board Of Education and the teachers union.

Daily newspapers in Stamford and Greenwich are looking for their third editor in a year.
Editor David Warner's resignation was announced by The Advocate of Stamford and the Greenwich Time on Saturday. Warner, a former city editor of the Philadelphia Daily News, says he wants to spend more time in Philadelphia.
Warner was hired in June from The Rockford Register Star in Illinois, where he was metro editor. He's also held editing posts in Detroit, Pittsburgh and New Jersey.
Warner replaced longtime Advocate editor Joe Pisani, who left the Connecticut newspapers after a 30-year career.
The newspapers were acquired by Hearst Corp. from Tribune Co. nearly a year ago.

Revolving Door at the Local Rag


The citizens of this Town suffered for many years under the idiocy of Local Rag (aka *Yellowwich Time*) editor Joe "I Control the News and Don't You Forget It" Pisani. Finally, the Hearst people realized what a turkey they had on their hands, and fired him. A large collective sigh of relief was heard to go up from the right-thinking inhabitants of Greenwich.
In June a new editor, David Warner, arrived on the scene. And suddenly, before your scribe could blink, let alone meet the man, he is gone.
What's going on at the Local Rag? The proffered excuse, that he'd rather live someplace else, was used here in Town by various Superintendants of Schools when it became obvious that their presence was no longer desired by the community. (So far Betty Sternberg hasn't taken the hint, but then, since she's "earning" more than $1,000 per "working" day, why should she?) And just as it didn't ring quite true in the case of the S's of S's, it's not ringing quite true to your scribe's ear in the matter of ex-editor Warner.
Perhaps we should call this the "Greenwich Excuse", dear reader.
If it's time for you to go, suddenly that long-distance commute that was "no problem" when you took the job becomes the reason you finally throw in the towel.
In his case, he borrowed a line from the late W. C. Fields, saying "I'd rather be in Philadelphia." In Fields' case, of course, the line was ironic, having been his own suggestion for the epitaph on his gravestone. But in ex-editor Warner's case, it apparently isn't.
Did he jump or was he pushed?
The question is inevitable, of course. Maybe he saw what a mess he'd inherited from turkey Joe, and decided to bail. Maybe he realized that the handwriting is on the wall, and that the publication days of the Local Rag will likely come to an end ere long. Or maybe he simply disagrees with Mr. Fields about the attractiveness of being in Philadelphia - hey, it's a free country, after all, and everyone is entitled to their own opinions.
Or, maybe it was also the fact that a shopping and dining cameo on Greenwich Avenue by none other than tabloid queen Britney Spears became front-page news in the Local Rag that caused ex-editor Warner to throw in the towel. "This is journalism?" he may have thought to himself.
"Who's next, Paris Hilton?" Perhaps we can hardly blame the poor man for handing in his resignation a day or so later.
And so the saga of Yellowwich Time continues to amuse the citizenry of Greenwich. Since no one takes the rag seriously, its chief function these days is pretty much geared to its entertainment value. No wonder the Hearst Corporation will probably be closing it down before much longer.

More Opinion From
The Greenwich Time:











To the Geen wich Time editor:
Parsonage Cottage exists for Greenwich's frail elderly residents today because of the efforts of dedicated volunteers, town employees and enlightened community leaders in the Representative Town Meeting and greater Greenwich community. Foremost among the energetic and dedicated individuals who recognized the need to maintain and improve Parsonage Cottage as an important component of the local "safety net" was Ed Krumeich, who is running for state representative in the 151st District.
In his capacity as chairman of the Board of Social Services, Ed played a key role in recognizing the opportunity to convert the facility by working closely with the Greenwich Housing Authority. It was a long and demanding process to renovate an outmoded almshouse into a modern, licensed home for the aged.
It took Ed's leadership, acumen, credibility and tireless energy to help obtain the cooperation and support of the Board of Estimate and Taxation and RTM, and the necessary state approvals to re-build and re-open Parsonage Cottage.
Ed was "always there." He could memorize, digest and adapt to new information about any aspect of the project literally "on his feet" while walking to the podium or into a meeting. His intelligence, like his compassion and dedication to those less fortunate, was simply amazing.
As state and town funding was cut, Ed had the vision to see the possibilities when others were ready to give up. He found outstanding partners in the Housing Authority and others who could make the vision a reality.

Perseverance, compromise and common sense are critical traits of a good leader. Add compassion to the mix, and you have Ed Krumeich, a superb community leader who's proven he can work across the aisle for the benefit of his constituents.
He didn't give up on Parsonage Cottage, and he won't give up on those he represents. Ed will make an exceptional representative in the state Legislature.
