04/07/09 READER SUBMITTED COMMENTS: Greenwich weigh station

Good morning Greenwich Roundup,

Someone just emailed me and asked if I know about the incident at the weigh station on I-95. I just checked with our "wonderful" Greenwich Time but didn't see anything.
Dear Reader,
I am not sure what occurred at the Greenwich Weigh Station.
I spoke to Greenwich Diva who is in Indiana about another matter.
She also said that she received some emails about there being a large Greenwich Police Department response at the Weigh Station.
Unfortunately, I am not on this email list and Greenwich Diva is out of town.
So I really don't know what occurred.
By the way Hat's Off To Greenwich Diva For Maintaining Her Blog Even Though She Has Been On The Road.

04/07/09 Greenwich High School Math Teacher, Lauren Busskohl, Survives Plane Crash

Pound Ridge man, Greenwich High teacher walk away from Carolina plane crash
Journal News

A pilot from Pound Ridge and his passenger escaped serious injury Saturday when the Cessna he was piloting from Danbury, Conn., to Myrtle Beach, S.C., was forced to make an emergency landing at an airport in Ocean Isle, N.C., but crashed a few hundred feet short of the runway, authorities said yesterday.

Daniel Moskovitz, 43, and his passenger, Lauren Busskohl of Stamford, Conn., were treated at Brunswick Community Hospital after the 5:40 p.m. crash and were released. The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating, said Lt. Ken Bellamy of the Ocean Isle Police Department.

The single-engine Cessna 177 was en route from the Danbury Municipal Airport to Myrtle Beach when Moskovitz reported engine trouble and requested permission to land at the Ocean Isle airport, said Kathleen Bergen, spokeswoman for the FAA's southern region.

She said the plane was registered to a Delaware corporation called Fly 4 Food Inc.

In an e-mail to The Journal News yesterday, Busskohl, a math teacher at Greenwich High School in Greenwich, Conn., recalled the calmness with which Moskovitz landed the plane despite its loss of engine power.

"We were less than 10 minutes to our destination ... when the engine started to have trouble. It was revving and slowing and finally cut out," Busskohl wrote. "Danny was calm and extremely expert in his ability to get us within 20 feet of the runway, missing all buildings, trees and powerlines before he crash-landed us on the belly of the plane.

"He got us both out of the plane and ran from the aircraft, in case of fire or explosion. Many locals came running to our side from the local road we crashed by. The police and paramedics got to us very quickly and took us to the hospital to make sure we were okay. Amazingly we both walked away."

Busskohl said she was fine other than a "nasty headache," but said the crash aggravated a back injury Moskovitz suffered many years ago in a car accident........

Medical Doctor Enhances Health Awareness through Online Blogging

A highly dedicated medical doctor from Connecticut was inspired to start an internet weblog about health. Dr. Davon Jacobson, MD has created http://healthy-nutrition-facts.blogspot.com/, in order to bring light and truth on various health topics.

Greenwich, CT (PRWEB) April 6, 2009 -- After dedicating 15 years as a general practitioner and establishing a private medical practice, Dr. Davon Jacobson has decided to take health awareness to the internet. His dedication to health has carried him all around the world to different hospitals and meetings with well known physicians in various disciplines.

"The one thing I have noticed is that the public is largely unaware of the importance of health to everyday living," explains Dr. Jacobson, "I honestly feel that they need to be informed about these issues and more involved to gain a full understanding."

Throughout his extensive research on the internet, Dr. Jacobson realized there is a great deal of misinformation on various health topics. In January 2009, he decided to start a personal online weblog entitled; Ask the Doctor: Medical Health Articles. "If one thing is clear to me, it is that the internet is used frequently for information. I really feel passionate about helping people through the information presented in my blog articles," says Dr. Jacobson.

So far, Dr. Jacobson's weblog has reached tens of thousands of people in many different countries aside from the United States of America. The list of countries include those such as India, China, Japan, Switzerland, and Canada. Visitors landing on the weblog tend to be those seeking information about weight loss, vitamins, addictions, popular diets, arthritis, and cancer treatments.

In order to ensure highly relevant content, Dr. Jacobson updates the weblog twice per week with newer information. The visitors have the option to subscribe in a private newsletter for instant updates sent to their e-mail inbox. Dr. Jacobson is also a frequent contributor to a highly functional medical research charity fund. Visitors have the chance to donate and help provide further health awareness to the public through advanced medical research.

About healthy-nutrition-facts.blogspot.com:

The weblog, http://healthy-nutrition-facts.blogspot.com/, was specifically designed by Dr. Davon Jacobson to bring attention to all topics related to health. The weblog features highly detailed articles created by Dr. Jacobson himself as well as guaranteed nutrition tips.

04/07/09 Will The Greenwich Balducci’s Be Closing Soon ?

Balducci’s Has Been Screwing Things Up Lately.....

Could Balducci’s be underperforming in a town that loves upscale groceries?

Balducci’s managers are shuttering both Balducci’s stores in Manhattan — one in Chelsea and the other on the Upper West Side — on April 26. In addition, Balducci’s announced the closing of two other stores, in Ridgefield, Conn., and Washington, D.C.

The management called those four stores “underperforming.” (Five other Balducci’s stores, which are evidently “performing,” will continue to operate in Virginia, Maryland, and Scarsdale, N.Y.)

The Greenwich store, which was formerly a Hay Day Market is supposedly "preforming" according to Balducci’s managers, but Greenwich business and real estate insiders tell Greenwich Roundup that might not be true.

However, when Greenwich Roundup visited the store to today it appeared to be somewhat busy.

Apparently Balducci’s Has Been Sucking Wind For A While:

April 19, 2006

You may have walked by the storefront on the east side of 7th Street between D Street and E Street, NW, and seen the black signs. Or, maybe you overheard someone in real estate talk about it. Was it the press coverage that caught your eye? The eagerly awaited “it” is (but now was) a Penn Quarter installment of Balducci’s, a nationwide gourmet grocer with four stores in the Washington metro area.

PQResident talked with a Balducci’s representative in the DC area corporate office who indicated that construction on the Penn Quarter 7th Street store that was supposed to open in the May/June 2006 timeframe has been halted and the project has been aborted. A recent change in corporate strategy now has the company focusing on the New York metro area .......
