11/18/08 More Readers Submitted Comments About Joey Borselio

My heart goes out to Jessica Lewis. No mother should ever have to bury their child. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.

To Mr. Pastore, I realize you have to provide a defense for your client, but this has nothing to do with the amount of traveling he did that day. It has everything to do with the fact that your client drank and then proceeded to drive. Plain and simple. It is more than a "shame" when a life is lost.

To Mr. Moore, I have no sympathy for you. You knowingly drank, got behind the wheel of a car while under the influence, hit Mr. Borselio and then tried to evade responsibility. You deserve jail time!

To all those who drink and drive (and the scum bag lawyers who try to get them off), someday, I hope you all feel the pain, sorrow and loss that Jessica Lewis is feeling now.

11/18/08 Greenwich Roundup Reader From Greenwich Exit 4 Says Dirtballs Are Rich And Poor.

To the Round Up

Let's clear up how RICH Greenwich is. Are you taking an average from the whole town and comparing that % to the other towns? I doubt it, b/c the numbers will come up shorter than Mr and Mrs. Greenwich Ave. want the rest of the world to know.


Out of all the towns in lower Fairfield County, it is a melting pot from cash to slums. One one side, there lives the obvious obnoxious wealth, and on the othe,r low income housing that gets ignored until they get arrested.

The weathier Greenwich residents like to pretend the OTHER SIDE doesn't exsist.

Dirtballs live in big houses and small, some have top jobs, some have none. There are poor dirtballs who drive drunk on cheap wine, and rich dirtballs who drive drunk on $250 imported brandy. They are both RICHLY SHIT-FACED and shouldn't be driving at all.

I don't think Greenwich Police care how much money is in the bank of DRUNK DRIVERS. I think they need a little more head's up and a little less clock time.

Or maybe a few classes in " FOLLOWING CLUES."

Or maybe just glue themseves to this web site.

I believe the RICHLY REWARDED INTELLIGENT READERS knew all along what was up w/this accident.

I rest my case.

11/18/08 Another Hard Hitting Greenwich Time Editorial From Managing Editor Jim Zorba

Greenwich Time Managing Editor

Jim "My Editorials Are Called Nightime Sleeping Aids" Zorba

When one door closes, another opens up, those with an oracular predisposition say.

That just may be the case for Greenwich's hedge fund industry, which, having done just what it is not supposed to do - lose money in a down market - is suspending redemptions and closing funds and in general shrinking under the economic tidal waves it helped create.

The opening door for the hedgies? Weddings of same-sex couples from wealthy ZIP codes in neighboring New York, those seeking the tony cachet of high-end Greenwich nuptials to accompany the nouveau reality of a Connecticut-sanctioned marriage.

It's been nothing for a Greenwich dad to drop a quarter or half mil at the Delamar to give young Ashleigh the wedding day she has always dreamed about ...... Blah ..... Blah ...... Blah ....... Blah ........

What The Hell Is This Guy Talking About ??????

....The big drawback, however, may be crowds like we had for Powerball, when thousands of New Yorkers rode the train or drove to town for tickets that were not available to them at home.

But the hedgies may be able to help here as well. What could be more event-driven than selling pencils from a tin cup to those waiting in line to fill out their marriage license applications?

Hee Haw .... Snort ..... Snort .....

It May Be Controversial But Unlike Others In Greenwich I Really Enjoy Shoveling Snow !!!!!

11/18/08 Blog Comments Ask An Interesting Question About The Gateway To CT. What's Going On With The Gas Station On The Port Chester Border?

No Gas, But The Town Building Department Made Sure The Byram Gas Station Was ADA Compliant With New Curb Cuts And An Extra Large Handicaped Restroom.

I can hardly work on my blog, because I keep going over to "For What It's Worth" to see what Chris and his readers have to say,

As you'll see from the comments section of this post below, someone wants to know what happened to that gas station they redid, but never reopened, on the Byram border.

Personally, I don't know - do you?

The only thing I do know is that the old proprietor who rented the service station lived on North Water Street had fairly low prices and his family were good customers of my wive's old flower and gift shop.

I am not sure he will contnue leasing the service station from the oil company.

But that part of Byram really looks like crap, with the old lyon farm house falling apart, the gang graffitti and now this unfinished service station.

11/18/08 Why Was Heather Craig Treated Differently Than The Killer Known As Douglas "Twice Over The Limit" Moore ??????

Steps Should Be Taken To Insure That All Of Greenwch Society Is Treated Equally By It's Police Department.

Heather Craig, 45, of 56 Charles St. in Greenwich, was arrested Friday evening and charged with driving while under the influence, refusing to be fingerprinted, evading responsibility and unsafe movement, police said.

Officers were dispatched to East Putnam Avenue and Hillside Drive on a report of a motor vehicle accident to find that Craig was leaving the scene of the accident, according to a police report. They located her car at 380 W. Putnam Ave., and initiated a motor vehicle stop, police said.

Craig failed a series of field sobriety tests and was placed under arrest.

police said. At police headquarters, Craig became aggressive toward police officers and refused to sign her fingerprint cards, police said.

Craig was placed in a cell block at the police station.

She was later able to post a $1000 bond and is scheduled to appear in state Superior Court in Stamford on Nov. 28.



Why wasn't Douglas "Twice Over The Limit" Moore Given A Field Sobriety Tests?

Why Wasn't Heather Craig Allowed To Walk Away And Be The 45 Year Old Mystery Woman?

Fortunately, Heather Craig Didn't Kill Someone Or Crash Into A Telephone Pole Or She Would Have Recieved A $50,000 Bail.

Thank Godness That The Drunken Heather "I Left An Accident" Craig Only Refused To Be Finger Printed, Because If She Had Been Disruptive With Water Ballons She Would Have Come up With Another $49,000 In Bail Money.
Maybe Heather "I Left An Accident" Craig Did Not Want To Give Her Finger Prints, Because Douglas "Twice Over The Limit And Killed Someone" Moore Did Not Have To Give His Finger Prints For 45 Days !!!!
Why Doesn't The Greenwich Police Department Put All Drunk Drivers In A Cell To Sober Up Overnight?
How can an impaired person fully understand a legal document such as a bail agreement.

11/18/08 The Greenwich Police Department Failed To Arrest A Killer Whose Blood Alcohol Content Was Twice The Legal Limit. Drunk Wals Free Over A Month

A 24-year-old Riverside man was charged with second-degree manslaughter with a motor vehicle and numerous other offenses Monday in connection with the fatal Sheephill Road accident that killed 20-year-old Joseph Borselio on Oct. 5.

Douglas Moore, of 19 Nearwater Lane, turned himself into police headquarters at 1:30 p.m. after his attorney, James Pastore, was notified of an active arrest warrant, police said.

Moore is also charged with operating under the influence, evading responsibility in a fatal crash, unsafe movement and failure to exercise due care to avoid a pedestrian, according to a police press release.....

.....Moore could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted on the manslaughter charge. The charge is specific to motor vehicle accident deaths caused by someone driving while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or both, according to the state statutes.

Sgt. Timothy Berry, who oversaw the investigation, said toxicology results show Moore's blood alcohol content was twice the legal limit of .08 percent at the time of the crash.....

.....Berry said Borselio's body was carried on the car for several feet after being struck.....

....."He was returning home from being out during the day," said Pastore. "He had traveled a pretty good distance."

Jessica Lewis, the mother of Joseph Borselio, said she feels no sympathy for the driver charged with killing her son.

"This brings closure, but it opens another wound," said Lewis, of Lehigh Acres, Fla. "I am dreading the day I have to look at his face in court."

Residents of the area said speeding is a major problem on the road and that many people do not stop at the intersection when heading north on Sheephill Road.

Police said they suspect Moore did not obey the posted stop sign at the intersection.

Borselio was a high school graduate of the BOCES program and worked as a cashier at Shop Rite on West Main Street in Stamford. He was remembered by friends and co-workers as hardworking and friendly in the days following his death.

Moore was released from police headquarters on a $50,000 surety bond and is scheduled to appear in state Superior Court in Stamford on Nov. 24.

Town woman found strangled
A 22-year-old woman who lived in Greenwich was found slain over the weekend in Kearny, N.J., officials said.
Hedge fund manager Steven A. Cohen is no stranger to the Planning and Zoning Commission. The body has approved various additions to his Crown Lane estate since he bought it in 1998 for $14 million and now the SAC Capital founder is back for more.

Suit filed over YMCA access
After weeks of failed negotiations, a Greenwich man has filed suit seeking an injunction to force the Greenwich Family YMCA to put in a temporary ramp to provide wheelchair access to its building and the town to provide the necessary permits.
Luis Gonzalez-Bunster, who is in a wheelchair, filed a request on Nov. 13 for an immediate injunction ordering the Y to provide temporary access to the new addition that includes a new aquatics center with an Olympic-size pool.
The new addition is just one part of a $40 million renovation and expansion of the 96-year-old building, which has never been wheelchair accessible.

The suit states that denying access to individuals with disabilities is discriminatory and in violation of town and state building codes.

The YMCA, located at 50 E. Putnam Avenue, opened its pool in November 2007 with a town-issued temporary certificate of occupancy.
The certificatepermitted the facility to open so that members could access the building, before the completion of the entire project in June 2009.

The suit also seeks to order the town to revoke the temporary certificate of occupancy if a ramp is not built.

"I feel that the town was wrong for issuing the temporary certificate of occupancy without a provision to provide access for people in wheelchairs," said Gonzalez-Bunster's attorney, Frank Peluso

Once again, town faces election audit
If only Greenwich's registrars of voters had the same luck playing the lottery. For the fourth time in the past year, Democrat Sharon Vecchiolla and Republican Veronica Baron Musca are preparing to conduct a mandatory audit of the results from the most recent election after the town's name came up in a random drawing by the secretary of the state's office.
Eventually, the dead red oak tree in Peter and Judy Berg's Dandy Drive backyard in Cos Cob will fall, returning to the earth from which it rose.
