ROCKIN’ WATER™ TO ROCK the Appalachian area of Kentucky to Help Kids in Need
Old Greenwich’s Own ROCKIN’ WATER™ heading to Kentucky the week of March 23 to donate ROCKIN’ WATER and provide nutritional information to kids and their families

(OLD GREENWICH, Conn., March 5, 2009) – ROCKIN’ WATER™, the revolutionary new vitamin enhanced flavored water for kids, is pulling out all the stops and bringing ROCKIN’ WATER directly to kids in the United States that could benefit the most from ROCKIN’ WATER’S vitamin and mineral infused flavors – the Appalachian area of Kentucky. During the week of March 23, 2009, ROCKIN’ WATER and a group of ROCKIN’ WATER employees and volunteers, will travel to Kentucky to visit several schools and health clinics in the rural Appalachian areas to hand out bottles of ROCKIN’ WATER and educate children and their families in the area about healthy nutritional choices, including beverages. In addition to the truckload of ROCKIN’ WATER being taken to Kentucky, volunteers are also collecting much needed personal hygiene products like toothbrushes, toothpaste and school supplies to take to the children in Kentucky. Donation boxes will be located at Arcadia Café and The Upper Crust Bagel Company in Old Greenwich, Conn, and Rye, N.Y., from now until March 20, 2009. For more information, visit http://www.rockin-water.com/.

“Making a difference in children’s lives is one of the main reasons we created ROCKIN’ WATER,” said Amy Guierrieri, founder of ROCKIN’ WATER and ROCKIN’ WATER PRODUCTS, LLC., based in Old Greenwich. “We are all well aware of the poverty and nutritional issues effecting children in other countries, such as Africa, but what Americans tend to forget is that there are children right here in the U.S. that need help – learning about good nutritional choices and being given the accessibility to healthy products. ROCKIN’ WATER is just one option and we would like to help educate the children and their families and make a difference in their lives.”

ROCKIN’ WATER will visit schools and health clinics in Kentucky, working with the local public school districts, the Christian Appalachian Project (CAP), The David School, and Eula Hall’s Mud Creek Health Clinic to reach out to children and their families to provide them with fun nutritional information and free ROCKIN’ WATER bottles for the kids to take home. Excel transportation Services, Inc., of Chalfont, Penn., is donating its services to bring ROCKIN’ WATER to Kentucky. The plight of the Appalachian area children was recently illustrated on the ABC TV show “20/20” with Diane Sawyer and demonstrated the immediate need to help children and families in the area. Individuals interested in helping organizations working in Appalachia Kentucky can make donations directly to the following:

Christian Appalachian Project (CAP) – 1-866-270-4CAP or http://208.109.107.104/donate.shtml
The David School – 606-226-9911 or http://www.davidschool.org/Donations.htm
The Mud Creek Clinic – 606-587-2200

ROCKIN’ WATER™ is a revolutionary new water product that is “made by Moms who love their kids.” ROCKIN’ WATER is a naturally flavored enhanced water beverage that kids love, and is packed with Moms’ favorites – 11 vitamins and minerals, fiber, and an antioxidant ORAC rating of 500 – like a full serving of fruit or vegetable in every bottle! ROCKIN’ WATER is the inspiration of Amy Guerrieri, a mother of four young children and a serial entrepreneur, who got sick and tired of all of the unhealthy kid-targeted food and drink options and needed to figure out a way to get her children the nutrition they need. So Amy decided to take matters into her own hands and make a healthy, nutritious flavored water drink for kids. With the help of Karen Newman, M.S., R.D., a clinical nutritionist and certified childhood and adolescent weight management counselor, ROCKIN’ WATER was born. ROCKIN’ WATER is a unique product and fills a void in the kids’ healthy drink market. ROCKIN’ WATER is available in four delicious flavors – Apple, Cherry, Grape & Orange.

03/05/09 Officer finds 80-year-old woman was suffering from dementia and depression

Officer honored for saving elderly woman from cold - Greenwich Time

Police Officer Robert Hansen has been selected as February's Officer of the Month for his part in rescuing an elderly woman who wandered from home into a frigid January night in only a T-shirt and shorts, police said.

Police received a call at 5 a.m. Jan. 1 from a passing motorist who noticed a woman in the Bruce Park area walking around alone. She was not wearing suitable clothing for the cold temperatures, and police decided she should be found quickly, before she came to any harm.

Hansen was sent to the area, where he found the woman walking about 35 feet from the road in the snow behind some bushes, police said......

03/05/09 READER SUBMITTED COMMENTS ABOUT THE THE MAYOR

Exposing Stamford's underbelly: not if, but when .....


This Reader Seems To Have A lot Of Information On The Players And Hangers On In The Corrupt Power Structure That Borders Our Quaint Little Town


To the Editor:

Was I the only person NOT SURPRISED by today's Stamford Advocate headline?

I doubt it.

Did the Greenwich Round Up give this Greenwich resident the scoop on DAN MALLOY and his loser son, before it was in print?

Damn right it did!!!!

Did anyone else notice it was DARIEN POLICE who arrested Ben Malloy, and not Stamford's Police?

Really? Gosh, that's almost unbelievable.

ALMOST, being the operative word, folks.

See, the Stamford Police have been in Dan's pocket, as have the former senior editor of the Stamford Advocate-Greenwich Time, professional-sleaze ball, JOE PISANI.

So, the public never knew how much damage the MAYOR'S son was doing.

Joe didn't print it. Joe was too busy playing footsie with his EXECTUTIVE-ASSISTANT-BIMBO-EX STUDENT-GOSSIP-GURU SUSIE C.to print real news. (by the way, I can't keep track of that previous inner Advocate scene, nor do I even want to try)

Was Joe too far up the Mayor's butt, or was Dan up Joe's?

Does it matter? I mean who has time to compare these two losers who repeatedly lied to the public?

So, the police gave Ben Malloy run of the city to sell drugs, make death threats, damage property, wreck cars while drunk,...ECT...while they looked the other way. Yes, he had some MINOR ARRESTS. Or was it minor slaps on the wrist? Or was it some very stern father-type looks?

You know THOSE LOOKS!!!!

The "you make another death threat against a straight "A", NON-Caucasian girl, Ben, and I'm gonna get really mad youuuuuuu!!!!!!!!"

Yeah, this is how it works.

Now, hey I'm all confused!!! Who would want to smear the reputation of the next (haha) GOVENOR of CT???? What else has been hidden or lied about?

Where's Joe Pisani for the dubious (this never happened) alibi?

Where's the man they call Dan?

Does Dan really know Joe or is like an imaginary friend thing?

What's up with the Mayor of Stamford having sort of a pre-party-fund raiser with the Pisani guy? In Greenwich? Paid for by Stamford and with Ferguson Library administrators doing the grunt work? What?

There's a penny for your thoughts folks..

Gee, isn't it nice to know the real news, on the actual day it occurred, and not have to leave the house? The Greenwich Round Up has hit the nail on the head again!!

TaDa, from Greenwich, CT.
COMMENT:
What is this about death threats?
When you say....
"you make another death threat against a straight "A", NON-Caucasian girl, Ben, and I'm gonna get really mad youuuuuuu!!!!!!!!"
It sounds like Dan Malloy's son was arrested for this.
Could you please tell us more about this?
Was this covered extensively in the local newspapers?
Did Any Of The Ex-Stamford Advocate / Greenwich Time Employees At The Malloy Loving Blog Called "Our Greenwich" Have The Guts To Report The Truth And Let The Chips Fall Where They May?
Or Did They Only Write Mind Numbing Nonsense Like This When They Were Employed At The Stamford Advocate / Greenwich Time....
In About Ninety Days The Residents Of Stamford Will Mark The First Year Anniversary That Mayor Dan Malloy Has Not Had Ex-Greenwich Time Editor Joe "The Censor" Pisani To Cover His Rear End.
It Sure Was Easy To Be The Longest Serving Mayor Of Stamford With Pisani Not Telling Advocate Readers The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth.
Who Knows Maybe Pisani Can Persuade His Acolyte And Recently Rehired Greenwich Time Managing Editor Bruce Hunter To Provide Mayor Malloy With Just Enough Cover To Get Him Elected Governor.
Malloy Just Has To Convince His 21 Year Old Son To Only Commit His Felonies With In Stamford's Borders.

If Malloy Were To Become Greenwich's Next Governor Will The State Police Have To Look The Other Way As His 21 Year Old Son Continues His Never Ending Crime Wave?

03/05/09 First Selectman to ask BET to keep money for King Street design in budget

Tesei looks to restore fire station funds

By Neil Vigdor
Staff Writer

In a role reversal from when he was chairman of the Board of Estimate and Taxation, First Selectman Peter Tesei is calling on his former colleagues to reinstate funding in the budget for the design of a new King Street fire station.

The BET Budget Committee took the controversial step last week of recommending cutting $175,000 in architectural and engineering funds for the facility from the proposed 2009-10 budget, saying it wanted to see a comprehensive deployment plan from the Fire Department before the town commits to additional staffing.

Tesei, who served as BET chairman from 2001-07, is now seeking to undo that recommendation when the full finance board deliberates on the proposed budget on March 19.

"In terms of overall priority, public safety ranks No. 1," Tesei said. "This is about providing adequate fire protection to an area that is currently not being serviced."......

The 24-year-old town man charged with manslaughter with a motor vehicle for an accident that left another young man dead had a blood alcohol content more than two times the legal limit the night of the crash, prosecutors said in court documents......

.....According to the warrant, police believe the impact of the crash propelled Borselio onto the hood of Moore's car, causing his head to break through the windshield as the car carried him 279 feet down Sheephill Road before his body fell off onto the side of the road......

.... According to the warrant, after Borselio's body came off the car, Moore drove erratically in different directions as evidenced by a path of antifreeze that was dripping down from the vehicle. At one point, the warrant alleges, Moore stopped his SUV near Borselio's body, and then turned and drove away before hitting a utility pole.....

.....In the aftermath of the crash, the warrant depicts a disoriented and upset Moore who was covered in blood and possibly in shock. An emergency responder on the scene told police Moore repeatedly asked if he had hit something, according to the warrant....

03/05/09 Stanwich students had to pass through "testing stations" where teachers, acting as government immigration officials, interrogated them.

Ellis Island imprints on Stanwich students

By Colin Gustafson
Staff Writer

Coming to America is no easy task. Just take it from Stanwich School fourth-graders. On Wednesday, they donned the traditional attire of their ancestors in a re-enactment of what new immigrants experienced when they arrived at New York's Ellis Island in the early 1900s.

About 50 youngsters participated in the annual event, designed to enhance their understanding of immigrants' roles in American history.

Students prepared for the event by completing a three-week "ancestor detector" assignment during which they interviewed their relatives about their heritage, came up with an immigrant character to portray and finally made a costume to wear during the simulation.

For the simulation, they had to pass through "testing stations" where teachers, acting as government immigration officials......

Ben Malloy, 21, turns himself in after family home searched

By Jeff Morganteen

Staff Writer

DARIEN -- Ben Malloy, the 21-year-old son of Stamford Mayor Dannel Malloy, turned himself in to Darien police Wednesday evening after learning they had a warrant for his arrest in connection with an attempted robbery over drugs.

It was his second arrest in 16 months.

Ben Malloy and two other suspects are charged with trying to rob marijuana early Tuesday from a 19-year-old Darien man at his home on Old King's Highway North. Two of the suspects, it is not clear which, were armed with a pellet gun and a .22-caliber handgun that fired only blanks, Darien Lt. Ronald Bussell said.

Tuesday evening, police searched the mayor's home at 277 Ocean Drive East, where Ben Malloy lives, and found "circumstantial evidence" linking him to the incident, Bussell said. Police did not find drugs or weapons in the mayor's home, he said....

Richard Blumenthal said today he is running for a sixth term as attorney general in 2010, ending the quadrennial speculation about whether he will run for governor. "We'll put out a statement later today," he said.

Blumenthal, who turns 63 on Feb. 13, has the highest name-recognition of the potential Democratic candidates, but he has never hungered for the governor's office. He has been stymied from running for the only office besides attorney general that interests him, a U.S. Senate seat, by Connecticut's two long-serving senators, Christopher J. Dodd and Jospeph I. Lieberman.

Blumenthal's decision leaves at least a three-way race for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination -- with still others considering entering the contest.

James A. Amann of Milford, the former House speaker, formed a candidate committee in December and will announce his candidacy on Feb. 11.

Stamford Mayor Dannel P. Malloy, who lost a close Democratic gubernatorial primary in 2006, and Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz say they intend to form exploratory committees soon......

Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy has commented on the news that Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal is seeking re-election and will not seek, at least in 2010, the democratic nomination for Governor of Connecticut.

In a prepared statement issued this morning, Mayor Malloy lauded Blumenthal as a friend and as someone who has "made Connecticut a safer place to live". Malloy has stated in the past that he was interested in running for Governor but would only consider it only if Blumenthal said no for next year. Now that has happened, Stamford's chief manager went to to say in his statement that "the only other job I'd be interested in pursuing is Governor." Malloy says he will be speaking again on the topic tomorrow......

STAMFORD -- Following Attorney General Richard Blumenthal's announcement this morning that he will not be pursuing the governor seat in 2010, Stamford Mayor Dannel Malloy had a political announcement of his own.....
