Road races plentiful in May
Stamford Advocate

....Next Saturday one of the prettiest 3 mile races in the state, the Riverside Run, celebrates its 27th running from the elementary school in that section of Greenwich.

It's a challenging course because the first mile or so is primarily downhill as you run from the school to the seaside community of Willomere, encouraging racers, especially the throng of youngsters from the school, to bolt out at breakneck pace.

Greenwich, officers agree to settle over military lawsuit
Two years after five Greenwich police officers sued the town claiming they were discriminated against because of their military service, officials said Friday that a tentative settlement has been reached.

Though officials on both sides confirmed that the officers and the town had reached an agreement, they said details of the settlement cannot be released to the public until it is approved by the Board of Selectmen, the Board of Estimate and Taxation and the Representative Town Meeting. "At this point in time, all I can say is that the settlement conference was productive and we will be moving forward with presenting the results of it to the various town bodies," said First Selectman Peter Tesei, who traveled to Hartford on Thursday to participate in a settlement conference before a federal magistrate.....
....The four other officers in the military lawsuit were Patrolman Sean O'Donnell, Sgt. Kraig Gray, Lt. James Heavey and retired Detective Terry McCue. Their Meriden-based attorney Richard Gudis did not return several calls Friday seeking comment on the settlement. Town Attorney John Wayne Fox did not return a call for comment Friday.

Chief of Police David Ridberg, who also attended proceedings in Hartford on Thursday, said he felt positive about the way the conference played out.....
....The lawsuit was seeking unspecified compensation for economic losses, including benefits, legal fees and punitive damages, from the town. Officials did not say whether the town agreed to pay anything Thursday, or if any of the officers will have a chance to take promotional exams they were barred from participating in before.

Officials said it could be a few months before the agreement is finalized. Read More »
