11/25/09 RESSION BUSTER: Save A Buck Read Thursday's Greenwich Time On Wednesday For Free !!!!

Psych evaluations continue for Pemberwick grandfather
STAMFORD -- Three months after a 76-year-old grandfather charged with murder was ruled competent to stand trial, his lawyer is continuing to plan psychiatric evaluations to determine how to proceed.

Gerardo Lombardi, of Pemberwick, appeared in state Superior Court on Wednesday morning looking haggard and sporting a long, gray beard.

Lombardi's lawyer, public defender Howard Ehring, told a judge he had obtained the results of a recently performed psychiatric evaluation that will be used to determine if Lombardi is suffering from an "extreme emotional disturbance."

However, the results of the test were not put before the court because the prosecutor said he needed more time to sort through the findings.

"I am just getting that report," said Assistant State's Attorney Paul Ferencek......

Two charged with stealing from unlocked cars
A Rhode Island man and a Greenwich resident were caught after breaking into unlocked cars at the Putnam Green apartment complex Tuesday night when a witness called police to the property, police said.

Mark Pelazza, 20, of 1 Seitz Lane, and Corbin Holland, 20, of 207 Ohio Ave., Providence, were arrested and charged with criminal attempt, simple trespass, sixth-degree larceny from a motor vehicle, conspiracy and third-degree burglary.

Police arrived at the apartment complex at 11:30 Tuesday night and saw a car attempting to leave the parking lot with its headlights off, according to a police report. There were two men in the car who matched the description from a witness, who observed them attempting to enter nearby vehicles, police said.

A bottle of liquor was in plain view, police said, and both suspects were under age 21. Police searched the car and turned up items that had been stolen from the unlocked cars, according to the police report.

A search found a hypodermic syringe and a soda cap with white residue in one of Pelazza's pants pockets, police said......

Glenville fire station renovation project ramps up
A major renovation project at the Glenville Volunteer Fire Co. is starting to show signs of progress, with the construction of two new garage bays finished in time for the winter.

The next phase of the $2.8 million project will begin shortly after Thanksgiving, when the station's sleeping quarters are shifted to a set of modular trailers on site while the rest of the building is renovated.

Fire Chief Peter Siecienski said the renovated building will be a marked improvement.
"It's going to at least meet the needs of the career and volunteer force of a modern fire department," Siecienski said.

Established in 1903, the Glenville Volunteer Fire Co. was an all-volunteer force that operated out of the Veterans Club on Riversville Road until moving to its current Glenville Road site in 1953. Since that time, the force, including 30 active volunteers and eight career firefighters, as well as its five-engine fleet, has outgrown the 8,526-square-foot station.

Greenwich zoning commission requires more information on pair of developments
Opponents of a restaurant that is undergoing a major renovation scored a victory Tuesday as they persuaded the Planning and Zoning Commission not to immediately approve changes the restaurant.

Instead, Luca's Steakhouse at 35 Church St., has to file a site plan and a special permit application for changes it wants, including to its facade and the placement of a gas meter and transformer.

Tuesday, the Town and Country Condominium Association at 20 Church St. -- directly across from Luca's -- argued the changes requested by the restaurant were too extensive to be approved by the commission at the meeting.

Jane Hogeman, the lawyer representing the commission, said Luca's should file an application for a site plan and a special permit, a more formal process that includes notifying neighbors of possible changes to the plan.

"(The changes have) come in dribs and drabs," Hogeman said, adding that her clients and other neighbors haven't been formally notified of the requests.

She said her clients had other concerns including traffic, noise and landscaping, which could affect property values and quality of life.

Thomas Heagney, the lawyer for Luca's, said the changes were minimal and asked for the commission's blessing to proceed......
