10/08/09 The Greenwich Topix Editor Would Like To Welcome Greenwich Time Forum Members To The Greenwich Forum

Ya Gotta Love That Good Old Fashioned Greenwich Time Censorship

On September 24th, Greenwich Time Editor David McCumber pulled the plug on the Topix Message Boards at 2:30 PM last

The explanation appeared in the BLOG box on the right side of the paper's home page, that soon disappeared as angry Greenwich Time readers started complaining.

Too bad.

The corporate editors at Hearst Newspapers cut themselves off from some of the most informed and challenging reactions to its work, admittedly admixed with a dash of trash - a small price to pay for candor.

Maybe, David "The Censor" McCumber Should Get Out Of The Greenwich Time Kitchen If He Can't Take The Heat From His Newspaper's Readers

10/08/09 Pass out the cider, and the jobs, it's election time by Bernie Yudain former editor of Greenwich Time

The town election is just about a month away so the campaign should be going into high gear.

Board of Estimate and Taxation and Board of Education seats are on the ballot, an unchallenged town clerk and some lesser offices fill it out.


So far, there have been a few debates between the top contenders, First Selectman Peter Tesei and his Democratic challenger and current selectman, Lin Lavery.

Looking at the classy campaign propaganda now emanating from the candidates reminds me of how far we've come and how much things have changed since I was a reporter covering politics in town many years ago.

In those days, the principal propaganda vehicle was the public rally. Both parties mounted these open meetings in all parts of town, often heralded by marches in the street, big ads in the newspapers and any other means to promote turnout.....

10/08/09 There's a new player in South Florida's condo market

Starwood Capital Group will wield new influence over South Florida's condo market after it won an auction bid for the Corus Bank condo portfolio from the FDIC.

BY MONICA HATCHER
mhatcher@MiamiHerald.com

South Florida's battered condo market just got a major new player.

Starwood Capital Group's deal to acquire a big stake in a basket of condo construction loans and projects of failed Corus Bankshares from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. puts the Greenwich, Conn.-based private equity giant in charge of roughly 21 percent of the unsold condo inventory in greater downtown Miami. That makes Starwood the second largest force in downtown behind Jorge Perez's Miami-based Related Group, which held about 3,000 units at the end of the third quarter, or 36 percent, according to new research from Condo Vultures.

Corus' $4.5 billion portfolio included about $1 billion in loans secured by condo projects in South Florida, almost all in varying states of distress. The rest of the loans back projects elsewhere in Florida and in Las Vegas, San Diego and Atlanta, among other spots.

``Starwood is coming in at a lower cost basis, so as they start to move units, they are going to dictate what the market is,'' said Peter Zalewski, a Condo Vultures principal and a leading local analyst. ``Related has more inventory, but they don't have the price control.''.......

10/08/09 Greenwich, Norwalk doctors file assisted suicide lawsuit - Greenwich Time

Two southwestern Connecticut physicians want to help terminally ill patients to die, so they're asking Connecticut courts to decide on the meaning of "suicide" in state law.

The attempt to overturn a 40-year-old law could have national ramifications and make Connecticut a focus of debate on end-of-life issues that divide the public and the medical profession.

Dr. Gary Blick, a Norwalk physician specializing in infectious diseases, who filed the lawsuit with Dr. Ron Levine, of Greenwich, said during a news conference in the Capitol on Wednesday that the unconsciousness of "terminal sedation" is the only legal treatment for them to offer dying patients.....
