03/27/09 Claudia "Dolly" Powers' Secret To Political Success: Use Child Labor

A chance for students to try hands at politics


Greenwich Time Columnist

Most political campaigns, mine included, have run on volunteers of all ages. Years ago, one of my sons and his buddies voluntarily donned screaming-red T-shirts and paraded around the Greenwich High School student center one day just before the election. Another younger son gamely shivered atop an antique fire engine in a parade through the very brisk October streets of town.
Yet another son of very tender years passed out campaign literature at a local doughnut shop, fueled by an alarming quantity of Munchkins. Demonstrably, campaigning can be mastered at any age. But our political process is not just the rigmarole of the campaign trail.

Once an exciting campaign like last year's presidential race is done, where can we channel all that newly generated energy? For local juniors in high school, I have a suggestion.....
.....Check out Connecticut Boys and Girls State. These are two separate events that run for one week in late June at a Connecticut college campus. Following that, Boys and Girls Nation is held in July in Washington, D.C. Greenwich students are selected for the two programs and supported by the Greenwich Boys and Girls State Commission in concert with American Legion Post No. 29........

03/26/09 The Latest From The Greenwich Post Sports Desk

Greenwich High School junior Clay Graham looks to pass the ball during the class LL opening round game against Danbury High School. — Paul Silverfarb photo


With not a lot of varsity experience on this year’s Greenwich High School boys basketball roster, the Cardinals were able to do something no other basketball team at GHS was able to achieve.

Coming into this season, GHS head coach Bill Brehm looked on his roster and noticed how many seniors were lost to graduation. The likes of leading scorer Russ Rosenband, lead rebounder Chris Valentine and other athletes like Chris Bisanzo and Sean Massi were no longer on the team, and GHS was left to almost start anew.

However, with a regular-season record of 13-7 overall, the Cardinals qualified for both the Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference and Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference class LL tournaments for the third consecutive season, something that has never been accomplished in Greenwich.....

03/27/09 The Raw Greenwich News Feed

Kennedy family nephew Michael Skakel is escorted by court officers out of Norwalk Superior Court in Norwalk, Connecticut after being sentenced to 20 years to life in prison, August 29, 2002, for the 1975 murder of his teenage neighbor Martha Moxley.

Skakel's Lawyers Make Bid To Reverse His Murder Conviction

Hartford Courant


Michael Skakel's lawyers continued their efforts to reverse his conviction in the Martha Moxley murder Thursday before the state Supreme Court, attacking issues ranging from the Greenwich police investigation of the crime to the legal judgment of Skakel's trial judge.

The appellate team, Hubert J. Santos and Hope C. Seeley, was trying to overturn the trial court's decision in 2007 denying Skakel a new trial. The lawyers argued that the trial judge erroneously rejected their claims that they had learned of new evidence and of improperly concealed old evidence that implicates other suspects in the 1975 murder.....

....*The post-conviction disclosure by Gitano "Tony" Bryant, a frequent teenage visitor to Greenwich at the time of Moxley's death, that two of his friends implicated themselves in the bludgeoning.

*Whether Skakel should be allowed to present to a jury his contention that the prosecution's chief investigator on the case might have been biased because of a secret "pact" that he had with an author who wrote a book about the case.

•Skakel should be able to make a case to a jury that the prosecution failed to disclose investigative reports that might implicate other suspects in the Moxley killing.

....In particular, the justices asked about efforts by detectives from the Greenwich Police Department to develop information that could have been used to corroborate Bryant's post-conviction assertion to a defense investigator.

Bryant said that his two teenage friends were in Moxley's neighborhood the night of the murder, that they were drinking and smoking marijuana and that they discussed going "caveman" on a girl."It's hard for me to believe," Justice Richard Palmer said, "that the Greenwich Police Department could have been that slothful in determining who was in the neighborhood at that time.

It's possible."Santos replied, "It's no secret that over the years, one of the great criticisms of the Greenwich Police Department is the sloppiness with which it handled this case. That's because they didn't handle homicides.".....

Bears Are Wary as Bull Returns
Wall Street Journal
Stocks continued their rally Thursday, pushing the Dow Jones Industrial Average up 21% from its recent bottom -- a new bull market by a common Wall Street definition.

To many skeptical investors, it seems to be a Cinderella bull market, however: one that will turn out to be an illusion when the clock strikes midnight.

For the moment, the rally looks powerful, a great relief to those investors who are hoping the worst pain is over......


...Doug Cliggott, chief investment officer at Dover Investment Management in Greenwich, Conn., bought ETFs in an effort to profit from the upturn. But he, too, has begun selling those short-term investments, worried the rally could be peaking. In the longer term, he fears stocks could have farther to fall.

He tries to predict future market moves by looking at things that have been advance indicators of past bull markets, such as growth in corporate profit margins and in available credit. "Even though we believe in the viability of a little rally here, we believe we are still firmly entrenched in a bear market because profit margins are in free fall," Mr. Cliggott says.

Top dogs remain in denial over public anger
Financial Times

It has been a good week for US plutocrats and technocrats. The Andrew Cuomo-prompted give-back of the bulk of the $165m in AIG bonuses appeased the angry, anti-bankster mob....

....This week was just a lull in the storm: the nation's widespread and deeply felt anger at financial capitalists and capitalism remains the new and dominant fact of the country's political life. So far, neither Washington nor Wall Street seem to have fully grasped this political sea-change, or figured how to deal with it.....

...is that elite and mass opinion in the US are sharply and dangerously divided, a cleavage he sees as deep as the more frequently discussed partisan split. From the perspective of the nation's elite - not just the Greenwich, Connecticut, fund manager, but also the Stanford professor and the DC think-tanker.....

.... As a result, fairness and yes, even equality, have become more important to ordinary people than at any time since the Great Depression. Like all political revolutions, the privileged class is finding it hard adapting to this shift. But ignorance is dangerous: in the days after the Bolshevik revolution, Russia's bourgeoisie didn't think much had happened, either, and stock prices held steady on the Petrograd exchange.

John Bowman, a Byram Nieghborhood Association (BNA) member says he has been pushing unsuccessfully for BNA President Michael Bocchino to have the neighborhood group reconsider the project.

"He has so far refused to put it on the agenda," Bowman said "That's the reason for this protest. I believe they don't want it on the agenda because they're afraid it will be voted down."

Pocket parks spark Byram protest
Greenwich Time
An upcoming town project to create a pocket park on South Water Street in Byram is dividing the neighborhood, with supporters saying it will beautify a neglected area of the riverfront and critics questioning its cost and effect on parking.

"The people who support this don't live here and don't work here," said Joe Catalano, a third-generation owner of J. Catalano and Sons, a car-and-boat repair business that borders the park site.

The approximately one-tenth-acre site will have a pedestrian walkway, landscaping, benches and a floating dock on the Byram River. A century-old easement over a strip of the property gives public access to the waterfront. The site is one of two pocket parks slated for the neighborhood....

....A protest is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at the site, part of which is used for municipal parking at South Water and Church streets.

Catalano said the project would lead to the elimination of parking spaces his customers and neighborhood residents heavily rely on. At the same time, he expressed concerns about safety, saying that the pocket park will likely attract teenagers at night.....

....Byram resident Chris Antonik echoed those remarks.

"It's a waste of our money," Antonik said.

During a visit to the site Wednesday, Antonik pointed out that a house across the street from the future park is owned by Stephen Walko, chairman of the Board of Estimate and Taxation, which appropriated money for the project as part of a large package of capital improvements.....

....Mary Ann Morrison, president and chief executive officer of the Greenwich Chamber of Commerce, said the business organization has some misgivings about the plan, however.

"Our concern is about the loss of valuable parking in a business community that is already struggling to have adequate parking for its employees and customers," Morrison said.
We can get those A.I.G. bonuses back, we can keep Bernard Madoff in jail, we can have Jim Cramer twisting in the wind. But none of that will help us fight the toxic waste product of America capitalism - greed.....
....Greed, like drugs and terrorism and poverty and other concepts on which we have declared war, will always be with us. The Madoffs and the A.I.G.s and the Jim Cramer's are just the bottom of the pit. Greed cannot be wiped out. Like any pathology, it can only be understood, treated, managed. And that, of course, will take money.
But we don't have any money, you say. That's why, when we get those A.I.G. bonuses back, President Obama should use them to fund another A.I.G., the American Institute for Greedism. This new A.I.G. could start with a line item budget..
#1. $20 million to fund "Greedland." Located in Greenwich, Connecticut, this greed theme park will allow the average American to experience the emptiness in the lifestyles of the rich and ravenous. E-ticket rides will allow "the little people" to sip champagne in a mega-mansion, go on spending sprees at Nieman Marcus, drive a Lamborghini, and pack our kids off to private school - forever. "Greedland" will also include such rides as "Pirates of the Dow," "Hedge Fund Hijinx," and the eerily lifelike "Great Moments With Mr. Trump."......
