Walk on Water 2009! WOW
supports Shake-A-Leg, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, whose Adaptive Sailing Program brings the benefits of sailing to people with physical and developmental disabilities.Rob Mathes at Piano The event honors Elsa Johnson, a friend of Joyce Clear (Clear Group International), who lives an incredibly independent and active life, although she has a neurological disease that confines her to a wheelchair.


Walk on Water 2009! visitors will be inspired by disabled sailors such as Paul Callahan, CEO of Shake-A-Leg and ranked the #1 disabled sailor in the USA and a Paralympics medalist. The donated sailboat, the Easterner, is a classic 12-Metre which competed in three America's Cup trials, and has been retrofitted by Shake-A-Leg. It is the largest sailboat ever to be raced with a disabled crew against able-bodied, professional sailors, culminating in the 12-Metre World Championship this September in Newport, RI. This is a first not only in sailing, but also in the history of sports.
Spinal Research
Kelly Ballo MossSpinal Research's mission is to find a cure for paralysis.

Kelly Ballo Moss was Joyce Clear's college roommate, who at the age of 40, was in a jeep accident while in Africa, where her spinal cord was severed. Her resulting injuries have rendered her a quadriplegic. While her mobility may be limited, it has not stopped Kelly from living life to its fullest.

Greenwich's Virtual Chastity Belt - the onorous Proof of Residency ...
By Lincoln Millstein
I have two recurring nightmares. The first is missing a final exam while still in college. The second is losing all my town privileges because I failed to prove my residency in Greenwich.


Is it my imagination, or are we compelled to prove our residency in more ways than required by any other municipality? It’s the virtual chastity belt around Greenwich that keeps the unwashed from Port Chester, Stamford and, God forbid, The Bronx from soiling our beaches, stealing from our schools and polluting our parks. When I applied to store my canoe at Greenwich Point, I had to prove my residency just to get on the waiting list. It didn’t seem to matter to the marine division that I already had a marine use permit, a mooring permit for my sailboat, and fees that I paid annually to store my boat, and to maintain a boat locker. So back to the house I went, in search of the CL&P bill from last month and various sundry other annoying evidence of an over-subscribed lifestyle, to sate the beast of Field Point Road.


The latest was the requirement that all incoming kindergarten and ninth graders schlepp down to the Havermeyer Building to prove they are residents before they can partake in Greenwich’s prized educational system which is struggling to best inner city schools in Bridgeport, New Haven and Hartford for bragging rights as having better Connecticut Mastery Test scores.....

NATIONAL SUICIDE: HOW WASHINGTON IS DESTROYING THE AMERICAN DREAM FROM A TO Z
National Suicide
Just Books
28 Arcadia Road, Old Greenwich, CT
Free and Open to the Public

Just Books welcomes New York Times bestselling author, journalist, and social scientist Martin L. Gross as he visits to sign copies of his recently released and very compelling book, National Suicide: How Washington is Destroying The American Dream From A to Z (Berkley Trade, $15; September 1, 2009). Martin Gross is the author of the bestselling book The Government Racket, which was an indictment of government waste. In National Suicide, Gross profiles the U.S. government as it is today, and correlates the direction the U.S. is heading in as away from the strong foundation laid down by America's founding fathers. The U.S. as we know it is heading toward extinction and Gross outlines the programs that have had huge financial impact on the U.S. and the national debt, the laws that have completely unintended consequences, and the scams perpetrated by legislators intent upon remaining in office no matter what the cost to the nation and its citizens -- for generations to come. No subject is taboo and Gross also confronts Medicare and Medicaid waste upward of $150 billion a year. National Suicide is like a fiery Town Hall Meeting, but also offers practical solutions on how America can govern better and smarter.

PETER SAVERINE & BOBBI EGGERS
JENNY'S PENNIES
Jennies Pennies
Just Books
28 Arcadia Road, Old Greenwich, CT
Free and Open to the Public

Just Books is pleased to welcome local Greenwich residents Peter Saverine and Bobbi Eggers as they introduce their new children's book Jenny's Pennies ($17.95).

It is often said that everybody has a book in them to write and Peter Saverine is no exception. Jenny's Pennies was originally meant to chronicle some of the special times when he and his family would find lucky pennies just when they needed them the most. For years they would call these "Jenny's pennies"-a tribute to Peter's mother, Jenny, who passed away in 1998 and who always believed that an errant penny was meant to be picked up and that it would bring good luck. For no apparent reason, Jenny's pennies would be found on the first day of school, in a new college dorm, on the football field before a game, or on a sunny beach. Saverine wanted a whimsical, freestyle artistic expression for the book and knew of Bobbi Eggers' work through previous business ventures. Bobbi Eggers, who is also a Greenwich resident, is a talented artist whose creative editorial cartoons (with stand-up comedian Jane Condon) are often seen in local newspapers and magazines.

WILLIAM F. BAKER, PH.D.
LEADING WITH KINDNESS: HOW GOOD PEOPLE CONSISTENTLY GET SUPERIOR RESULTS
A Short History of Women
Just Books
28 Arcadia Road, Old Greenwich, CT
Free and Open to the Public

Just Books is pleased to welcome Greenwich and New York City resident and author William F. Baker, Ph.D., as he visits Just Books to sign copies of his newest book Leading with Kindness: How Good People Consistently Get Superior Results (Amacom; $24.95). Bill Baker experienced leading with kindness firsthand during his 20 years at the helm of Educational Broadcasting Corp., parent company of WNET-TV (Channel Thirteen) and WLIW-TV (Channel 21). It inspired him to affirm and refine his notion of what honorable bosses can accomplish. With his friend Michael O'Malley, Ph.D., Baker did extensive research and interviewed dozens of leaders in diverse organizations. They share their insights into strong, effective leadership in Leading with Kindness: How Good People Consistently Get Superior Results. Today, many leaders have realized that when it comes to business, nice guys often finish first. Old-fashioned images of corporate callousness and greed have been replaced by a gentler, more human conception of great leadership. But how does one define "kindness" in the context of business? And what is the best way to "use" this deceptively complex notion as a guiding principle to lead an organization successfully into the future?
