02/11/10 Hey, where’d the growth go on GreenwichTime.com?


February 11, 2010 at 9:56 am by Keith Whamond

It’s been over a month since we relaunched GreenwichTime.com.....

......But as soon as we flipped the switch from the old site to the new one, we heard one particular piece of feedback again and again.

“What did you guys do to the clock?!”

It’s official: When we relaunched the site, we removed the famous Greenwich clock from our site header. The truth is, we had no idea that the Greenwich community had such a strong passion for their beloved clock....

....I’m pleased to say we’ve heard you loud and clear. And, starting a few days ago, the clock is back....

02/11/10 Linda Says,"Rob Simmons is from the government and he's here to help"

Linda McMahon For Senate

Rob Simmons is at it again...

Now he's attacking Linda McMahon for not being fluent in Chinese. Guilty as charged. Linda doesn't speak Chinese.

But fluency in Mandarin isn't the top issue on the minds of Connecticut voters. Economic recovery and job creation are top issues, as are federal spending and debt.

Linda McMahon entered the race for U.S. Senate on a promise to bring common sense and real world business experience to Washington. She understands what it takes to get this country back on track: We can't spend our way to prosperity. We can't borrow our way into the black. And our economy can't recover until Washington gets out of the way.

To Linda, that's just common sense.

And Rob Simmons?

He kicked off his campaign for Senate in March 2009, just a few months after he announced to a group of Connecticut small business owners:

"I am not a business guy. I'm a government guy."

In six years in Washington, Rob partnered with liberal Democrats to support job killing proposals like cap-and-trade and card check.

He supported 370 bills that increased spending, and only 13 that cut spending.

He voted twice to increase the debt ceiling by a total of $1.25 trillion.

After he was voted out of Congress, Rob became Business Advocate for the state of Connecticut. Under his tenure, not only did the state fail to create new jobs, it actually lost jobs.

With a 9.7% unemployment rate, Washington needs a Senator like Linda who has actually created jobs -- more than 500 jobs right here in Connecticut.

Perhaps there's a province in China that could use a 'government guy' like Rob.

Support Linda McMahon because it's time for a different kind of Senator.

Sincerely,
Ed

Nancy Kissel murder conviction overturned (theoriginalgreenwichdiva)
Update: 2/10/10 Hong Kong's highest court has overturned Nancy Kissel's conviction. The decision was made on Thursday, but Kissel, 45, is being kept in custody pending a bail application. Lawyers for the American woman, who was convicted of killing her banker husband in Hong Kong by drugging him with sedatives-lace strawberry milkshake, argued during the appeal hearing that prosecutors broke the law by using evidence during the murder trial that drew from the American's initial bail hearing after she was charged. Nancy Kissel is the former sister-in-law of Andrew Kissel, the Greenwich man who was found murdered in his mansion in 2006. Original story A three-judge panel of the Court of Appeal in Hong Kong granted a request to American Nancy Kissel, who was convicted of killing her husband in 2003, to file a second appeal before the territory's high court. Kissel was sentenced to life in prison for murdering her investment banker husband Robert Kissel, by lacing his milkshake with sedatives, then fatally bashing his head with a metal ornament. The trial made worldwide headlines because of its allegations of drug abuse, kinky sex and adultery. In the decision that was made by the panel today, the Court of Appeal sided with Kissel's lawyers that the trial judge improperly allowed statements from several friends to be submitted as evidence. Kissel, who admitted to killing her husband, testified that Robert was an erratic whiskey swilling workaholic who also snorted cocaine and forced her to have painful anal sex. The American couple and their three children moved to Hong Kong in 1997 for Robert's investment banking job. At the time of his murder, he was hired by Merrill Lynch to head its distressed assets business in Asia outside of Japan.
