Frank Trotta Says Hearst Newspapers Hasn't Measured Up To Greenwich Time Reader's Expectations .....

What Does the Ruler Say? – Our Greenwich
By Frank Trotta
I’m not an educator, but I’ve been a student enough to know some of the tricks of the trade. When you don’t have enough material to meet the teacher’s expectations you adjust the margins, play with the font, and add a lot a pictures and graphics. A clever student could make two pages of content into a five or six page report pretty easily.


Now, let’s take a look at the front page of Sunday’s Greenwich Time. All three stories were Greenwich stories — a good start. But I estimate there are 120 “column inches” available on each shrunken Greenwich Time page. How much of that was “copy” (words in a story, as opposed to outlandishly large margins, pictures, headlines, promotions, advertisements, and the like)? My ruler measured 16 column inches, or roughly 13% of the available space.


If you were a teacher, what grade would YOU give the student?

....Stepford Wives? Welcome to the Stepford School Board.


And because the school board is assured there is no one on it that represents the constituency most in need of representation in Greenwich - the fast growing Hispanic students - we have the perfect storm that has led to Greenwich being compared to the public school systems in Bridgeport and New Haven.


The Greenwich Time had a terrific editorial on the issue today, calling the current system unacceptable, especially in light of the declining reputation of the Greenwich schools under the current school board......

.... Let’s just have the first selectman appoint the superintendent and do away with the school board.


Let’s not have an un-democratic process and pretend we’re a democracy. The powers that be in Iran are learning the hard way that that doesn’t work......

06/22/09 Media Alert: Swm Across America June 27 Greenwich to Stamford Swim

SAA Logo
MEDIA ALERT

SWIM ACROSS AMERICA GREENWICH TO STAMFORD SWIM
SATURDAY, JUNE 27, 2009
Swimmers Make Waves to Fight Cancer
WHO: The third annual SWIM ACROSS AMERICA GREENWICH TO STAMFORD SWIM is making a big splash in the area in its fight against cancer with its swim scheduled for Saturday, June 27, 2009.

WHAT: There will be two open water swims - a 1.5 mile swim that starts at the beach at Greenwich (Tod's) Point with participants swimming along the shore of Long Island Sound, and a shorter half-mile swim (geared for swimmers ages 12 and older), that is also in Long Island Sound and leaves from the Rocky Point Club in Old Greenwich. In addition, Swim Across America is offering a pool swim this year at the Rocky Point Club for those who prefer to pledge their support in a pool. All swimmers end up at Cummings Point in Stamford, Conn., at the headquarters for the Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy (ACGT), which is the beneficiary of the swim and will use the funds raised to support a research grant for brain cancer with one of ACGT's research fellows at Harvard University.

ACGT is the nation's only non-profit organization dedicated exclusively to funding cancer gene therapy research. All Swim Across America participants and volunteers must register in advance at http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?et=1102619613408&s=42220&e=001qt3zyY98v8VzwzVXYbi-zTrI-MoXE8DY-LK-kpuVcgPnRKg7B--r-Qy6VRhwv_-thYXHCUrXVGweOFZwQ-Sij-NxA5fyVj0gUXf_oRCqcmPz7JwJCPYHxmkoMBUiprpM by clicking on the Greenwich Swim link.

There are numerous "teams" swimming this year in honor of friends and loved that are battling cancer or in memory of loved ones who have lost their fight to cancer. One team is "Team Max," which is in memory of Max Scotti, a seven year-old Greenwich resident and avid swimmer who lost his fight to brain cancer just this past April. Other individual swimmers and teams include friends, family and even cancer survivors, such as Karen Newman, a five-time all American triathlete who is swimming for the third time in a Swim Across America event. Karen is an Old Greenwich resident who is battling breast cancer. Swimmers come from all over Fairfield and Westchester Counties to participate in this event.

Several Olympic swimmers will also be swimming on Saturday and include Janel Jorgensen, Craig Beardsley and Brenda Borgh Bartlett. The honorary co-chairs include Olympic swimming champion Donna de Varona and her husband John Pinto, and John and Cindy Sites.

To learn more about the Swim Across America Greenwich to Stamford Swim, visit http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?et=1102619613408&s=42220&e=001qt3zyY98v8VzwzVXYbi-zTrI-MoXE8DY-LK-kpuVcgPnRKg7B--r-Qy6VRhwv_-thYXHCUrXVGweOFZwQ-Sij-NxA5fyVj0gUXf_oRCqcmPz7JwJCPYHxmkoMBUiprpM and click on the Greenwich/Stamford Swim link.

STAMFORD -- A Riverside man was sentenced to four years in prison Tuesday for an October 2008 drunken-driving accident that killed 20-year-old Joseph Borselio of Greenwich.


At state Superior Court, Judge Richard Comerford listened to impassioned pleas from Borselio's family to sentence Douglas Moore, 25, to the maximum jail time he could receive.


"It's outrageous to me," said Kayla Borselio, Joseph Borselio's older sister of the accident. "I wonder how someone can engage in such irresponsible drinking and take away someone that was completely happy with their life," she said while sobbing.

Port Chester man's head is smashed into eatery window during argument

Lower Hudson Journal news, West Harrison NY

PORT CHESTER - A Port Chester man had his head shoved into a restaurant window during an argument last night, police said. A 55-year-old Port Chester man was charged in the incident.

Lt. James Ladeairous gave this account:

Pedro Antonio Donis, 55, of 79 S. Regent St. in Port Chester, approached a 22-year-old man sitting inside the Hollywood Chicken restaurant, 216 Westchester Ave.

An argument between the two men led Donis to push the victim, and the younger man's head hit and broke one of the restaurant windows.

The victim was sent to Greenwich Hospital for evaluation for head pain; he was not cut. Ladeairous had no update today on his condition.

Donis was charged with attempted third-degree assault and fourth-degree criminal mischief, misdemeanors. The mischief charge stemmed from the breaking of the $600 window.

Donis made $250 bail and is due in Port Chester Village Court on June 29.
