Antares hits the Greenwich Time – it won’t be pretty

Watch for Sunday’s Greenwich Time. Front page story on the rise and fall of the Antares boys. [UPDATE - Not online as of 6: AM Sunday - Hmmm - did BJ O'Rourke, Terror of the New Canaan Bar, get the story spiked? Fascinating times at the Time - we'll have to dig around and see what's up on this]

Neil Vigoda (?) has spent weeks, even months on this one and somehow I don’t think it will be the puff pieces the boys generated when they were strutting around town telling whoppers about their genius. Turns out, that remedial year at Choate didn’t do them much good after all.

UPDATE: And while you’re waiting for that story, GT has already posted the latest investigative reporting by its top intern,
Susie Plate Lip :

Scene … Greenwich resident Judge Judy Sheindlin was seen dressed elegantly in her summer whites on Wednesday morning outside of the CVS on Greenwich Avenue.

Can this girl write, or what?

08/08/09 - For What Its Worth

Try this again

It’s tomorrow that Greenwich Time will run its expose on the sorry state of the Antares boys, not last week, as I so prematurely reported. And while I’m correcting things, Abe Vigoda was the sad faced cop on Barney Miller, Neil Vigdor is the very able Greenwich Time reporter who’s dug up good stuff on our local clown developers. My confusion of those names is evidence of a misspent youth, obviously.


Nope – no story today. I know that the article’s been written, so where is it? My guess is there are a couple of lawyers involved here, but maybe there just isn’t space to run it what with Suzie the Gossiper’s column and must-read stories about face painting and community gardens.

Greenwich Time: we’ll spike a story on Antares, but if we can slam a kid, we’re all over it

Greenwich Time’s expose of Antares developers seems to have disappeared off the table while their lawyers figure out if they might get sued.
But the death of a 23-year-old Greenwich girl who my daughter Sarah tells me was universally loved as a warm, generous, loving girl, is treated as a crime story:

By Frank MacEachernStaff Writer
Posted: 08/10/2009 05:48:04 PM EDT

A Greenwich woman was speeding, talking on a cell phone and not wearing a seat belt when she lost control of her car and slammed into a telephone poll last Wednesday, Vermont police said.

Hannah Smith, 23, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 10:30 p.m. accident on Todd Hill Road in Winhall, Vt., about 35 miles northwest of Bennington.

Chief Jeffery Whitesell of the Winhall Police and Rescue Department said not wearing a seat belt may have been the major factor in her death.

“Had she been belted in, it may have been a different story,” he said. “She was partially ejected from the vehicle.”

Police said Smith was also speeding, but said the exact cause of the accident may never be answered. “I don’t know if we are every going to definitively ever know,” he said.

I understand that our local paper relies mainly on AP stories for its filler but when it assigns one of its few remaining reporters to write on the death of a young Greenwich girl, I’d hope for a more restrained approach. I don’t object to recounting her errors, but to use them as the lede is pretty appalling.
