Jerry and His Midget-Loving Transsexuals Move to Stamford
It's true. America's most notorious talk-show host, Jerry Springer, is planning to move his show to Stamford.

Gov. Jodi Rell welcomed NBC Universal as they announced a deal Friday afternoon to set up a large television production studio at the Rich Forum Theater.

Jerry's bringing his friends, including Steve Wilkos, his former bodyguard-turned-show-host and Maury, as in, Povich. And with them, between 150 to 200 jobs. Plus, some cash. It's expected they'll make an initial investment of more than $3 million. That's a lot of paternity tests.

The state's 30-percent production tax credit sealed the deal, reports the Governor's office, the same reason Blue Sky Studios opened up a new animation productions studio in Greenwich last month. They also pick up a 20-percent tax credit on infrastructure costs over $1 million.

"This is good news at a time when we need good news, and my administration will continue to do all it can to bring good, dependable jobs to the state," Rell said.

Start shining those stripper poles, Stamford.

Truck stop yields weapons, one arrested
Greenwich (WTNH) - A Florida truck driver was arrested in Connecticut at the Greenwich weigh station after being found with a 40-caliber handgun and a knife with a blade over seven inches.

The State Police Truck Squad began inspecting the vehicle at the northbound Greenwich weigh station Friday morning, when Jeraldo Muniz, 40, of Hollywood, Fla. told officers he was in possession of the weapons.

Muniz was taken to State Police Troop G headquarters in Bridgeport, where he was charged with two counts of Carrying a Weapon in a Motor Vehicle and Carrying a Handgun without a Permit. He is being held on $15,000 bond.

Stimulus package weighed and found wanting

Heather Smith helps Greenwich residents on road to recovery
Norwalker Heather Smith has specialized in the treatment of eating disorders for close to 14 years and has practiced at 91 East. Ave., in Norwalk for the last six. She believes that eating disorders are somewhat more prevalent....

..."It also seems that parents are educating themselves more and I've heard many times of groups of friends going to a school counselor or guidance counselor because they're concerned about a friend. I think it's awesome."

In addition to Norwalk residents, Smith sees clients from Darien, Wilton, Stamford and Greenwich. She treats anorexia and bulimia and also works with athletes and compulsive exercisers, food addiction, binge eating disorder, obesity, night eating syndrome, compulsive overeating, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and body dysmorphic disorder (BDD).

....She pointed out that they are many great resources in Fairfield County to help people beat eating disorders, including the Wilkins Center in Greenwich and the Renfrew Center in Wilton....

....Henrick said she sees about 35-40 people a week. For the most part, those numbers have been consistent over the last five years, but she believes the Internet has made a big difference in the number of adults seeking help. That part of the population is typically harder to reach when it comes to eating disorders. Typically young adults will be referred by their pediatrician.....

Greenwich is a perfect "small" place with universal dimensions. It is the home to hedge fund barons and powerful CEOs. Yet, as I like to say, it's a town of yoga moms and dads who cheer their kids' teams from the sidelines....

Prep schools: Host with the most
It's an extraordinary setting.

One could easily become entranced by gazing out the picture window that occupies an entire wall of Deerfield Academy's Dewey Squash Center.

But not Ned Gallagher. He is the head of the New England Prep School Squash Association, and he was anxious to see what the business end of this state-of-the-art facility had to offer.

So, when Gallagher, who is also the Choate girls' squash coach and athletic director, brought his crew here to do battle last winter, it didn't take the veteran mentor long to like what he saw.
''I don't think he was in the facility five minutes before he asked if we could host the 2009 Boys' Class A Tournament,'' recalled Chip Davis, the Deerfield athletic director. ....
