03/31/10 Peter Tesi's Administration Tells Greenwich Disabled: Be Prepared, Because You Are On Your Own

Storm emphasizes need for seniors, disabled to plan ahead for emergencies

Though town officials encouraged older residents and people with disabilities to register for an emergency notification system last fall, the system, which would have helped people with special needs, wasn't set up in time for the March nor'easter.

Jacky Schofield, chairwoman of the First Selectman's Advisory Committee for People with Disabilities, which launched last year, said there wasn't enough personnel to feed information into a computer system. If the system had been in place, the town could have contacted the residents in advance, making sure they had arrangements or assistance, she said.....

......"What we're promoting is the idea that everyone should have a plan to take care of yourselves," Schofield said.


Schofield said town officials will be meeting Wednesday to discuss the status of the system......

03/31/10 Whitby School is a Shining Star in Greenwich

Photo: New York Ranger Hall of Fame goalie and Whitby parent, Mike Richter, emcees the school's Spring Benefit on April 10.

School Announces Its International Baccalaureate Accreditation. New York Rangers Hall of Fame Goalie, and Proud Whitby Parent Mike Richter to Emcee Spring Benefit on Saturday, April 10th.

Whitby, America’s oldest Montessori school, has always been an innovative leader in education and will be the first school in Westchester and Fairfield counties to integrate the International Baccalaureate (IB) program through both the primary and middle years. In fact, today the school announces, just in time for its upcoming community Spring benefit, that it’s accomplished a major portion of this goal. Whitby has received International Baccalaureate Accreditation, and is now an IB World School having been authorized for the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (MYP) for grades 5 through 8. IB Americas has recommended authorization to the IB World Organization in Geneva for Whitby's Primary Years Program (PYP) for kindergarten through grade 4 as well, and a response is expected soon. As a leading private school in Connecticut, Whitby's exceptional approach motivates children to acquire the intellectual, personal and social skills that will ultimately distinguish them from their peers. The result is students who learn, live and succeed.

“With so many incredible accomplishments being achieved by the school this year, I’m thrilled to take on a higher profile role at this year’s benefit,” says Mike Richter. “I have seen my own children skip into the building each day, excited about what they are learning. The quality of their educational environment starts not only with the facilities and their teachers but also their peers. It’s wonderful to see the quality friendships they are forming with like-minded, curious learners. As parents, it’s gratifying to know our kids are happy and getting an education like none other, and one that will fully prepare them for their future.”

Mike adds, “I’m also very excited about attending the Spring Benefit, a chance to spend time with Whitby friends like my good friend Mark Messier.”

Richter’s former Rangers teammate and Hall of Famer, Mark Messier, says, “This is a very special school that we feel privileged to be a part of. Whitby provides the foundation for a lifelong love of learning.”

The aim of all IB programs is to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, confident and caring internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.

Headmaster Doug Fainelli, a respected educator in the community for over 30 years, opened the first IB Primary Years accredited school in New England, the International School at Dundee, in 2000. Following his retirement from 35 years of teaching and leadership assignments in CT, including an eight month role as Acting Superintendent of Schools in Greenwich, Fainelli led the team to launch the British International IB school in Manhattan. He strongly feels the IB approach offers a synthesis of proven best practices including much of Maria Montessori’s groundbreaking work. The IB/Montessori mission and roadmap for learning result in independent, highly skilled, confident and motivated learners with an appreciation of the many cultures in our world. Fainelli is proud to support a mission that in part produces graduates who understand that “people with their differences can also be right.”

He notes, “A Whitby education develops a skilled, confident and compassionate learner. Students benefit from a ratio of 1 teacher to every 7 students and a rigorous curriculum, all on a state-of-the-art campus equipped to support the most effective applications of technology. Uniquely, our students are not seen as having mastered the goals of the curriculum until they take action and apply them in their lives.”

He adds, “While the upcoming benefit is a night to celebrate how far the school has come, it’s also about recognizing how far we can go and grow. This community is filled with passionate and talented educators, students and parents, and it’s exciting to be a part of it.”

KEY BENEFITS AND ADVANTAGES OF AN INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE PROGRAM INCLUDE:

Proven successful with numerous studies on the performance of IB students, the standards of the IB program and the positive effect of the program on a school indicating that:

IB students outperform their peers on state assessments
IB Diploma students have higher acceptance rates to colleges
IB Diploma students perform better in post-secondary education than their peers
IB standards are aligned with best practices in education and support effectiveteaching practices
IB has a positive impact on the culture of a school
32% of Newsweek’s top 100 high schools in US offer IB

Research based teaching approach with curriculum options to meet differing needs at Primary and Middle school levels:

Best practices from around world...inquiry and interdisciplinary strategies focused on higher order thinking/problem solving
Children learn a second language from Kindergarten on and usually others
Immediate application of learning in student’s life and community

Clear aims and values that develop active, empowered learners who take responsibility for their learning:

A consistent Learner Profile across three age programs that defines what IB mission means in student behavior terms and unites students, parents, teachers and administrators with a common focus on the whole person and life-long learner
Emphasis on intercultural understanding

The Whitby School has an advantage over other schools in the area, and the results are found in the students themselves. Just walk the halls or visit the busy, vibrant classrooms, and talk to any one of them. You will quickly understand these benefits in action. The emotionally and physically safe and nurturing environment built upon respecting each child’s uniqueness and supporting those needs with best teaching practices makes this school a gift all children should enjoy. Fainelli expresses regret that all schools do not exhibit the same qualities.

To learn more about Whitby, please visit www.whitbyschool.org. Also check out the school’s benefit blog at www.WhitbyBenefit.org where you will see a video of Mike Richter, as well as get a chance to bid on an exciting “Dancing With The Stars” auction package, or a stay at the Messier’s beach paradise in Harbor Island, Bahamas, where all proceeds go directly to the school.

03/31/10 Greenwich Resident Jim Himes: "Critical deadline, midnight tonight!"

Jim Himes for Congress

Friends,

At midnight tonight, I'll have to report my fundraising total for the first quarter to the FEC. The media, pundits and my opponents use my fundraising numbers as a measure of our grassroots support. If you have not already done so, I hope you will contribute to my campaign before midnight.

We are just $7,500 from our $31,000 goal - I need to your support to put us over the top.

Contribute $31, $50, $100 or even $500 before midnight and we will hit our goal

Republicans are looking to take back the House in 2010, and I am a top target.

In light of the historic healthcare reform I helped pass, they are prepared to fight tooth and nail against me to take back this seat.

I know that if I can reach my goal of $7,500 by midnight tonight, there will be no doubt that my campaign has the momentum going into this Spring.

We can't afford to wait until the fall to fight back - I need your help today.

I am counting on you to keep us strong.

Sincerely,

Jim

M W Finkbeiner has left a new comment on the Greenwich Roundup post "03/31/10 Greenwich First Selectman Peter Tesei Says No To Accountability":

Mr Whitaker might also have mentioned that the GIS maps, which he worked so hard to liberate for the public good, might also have played an effective emergency management role, if only they had been employed to communicate to the public.

However, even in that field the Town, with state backing (but not at FOI) refuses to release GIS data on sensitive terrorist targets like catch basins and culverts, making drainage analysis all the more difficult.

The thinking reflects that of Westchester County, which blots out Playland in Rye from the GIS images, due it its strategic security importance to the County, its owner.

03/31/10 Greenwich First Selectman Peter Tesei Says No To Accountability

To The Editor,

The last two emergency "responses" I've witnessed in Greenwich have been far from what could be called managed.

The major flooding of April 2007 foreshadowed this event. During both weather events, many people were driving in harm's way as a result of not having timely information on what roads were already known to officials to be impassible. People were left to fend for themselves in sometimes dire circumstances.

If the town claims to be doing its emergency preparedness planning, yet the actual plan is claimed to be exempt from public review, there is no accountability or proof that the public is getting any meaningful results from that planning or the $150,000-plus contractor expense. Nor is there any opportunity for the public responders (who will always be the front line) to find the obvious flaws in the plans, offer suggestions to improve upon them, or know how to do their part to implement them.

A relatively small disaster occurred this month with rain and a hurricane-force windstorm. No organized re-routing of traffic was in effect, not even spray-painted signs indicating which thoroughfares were still open to traffic; no organized shelter was available; and no news hubs were staffed and open in each community.

The blocked-road signage should have been updated with every police shift. No information was made available on where to visit or tune a radio for very local news, including who, or how, to call for food or emergency shelter, not to mention showers and meals for the displaced or elderly and frail. (How many home health nurses were scheduled to visit clients requiring oxygen or electricity and were informed of how to navigate around the backcountry obstacles?) Calls to 911 were going unanswered even for those who still had phone service.

A dangerous 12,000-volt power line was left to lie (and dance) on the Post Road in Cos Cob, arcing and burning bright for several hours Saturday. A falling tree broke one of three conductors. A 5-foot-diameter fireball effectively blinded drivers and necessitated closing the Post Road for hours. Why? Because no one could find a qualified Connecticut Light & Power employee to go a few blocks to the River Road Mianus River dam substation and pull a switch? This cable should also have been one of the first repairs to be made, yet it was left lying in the road for two days.

Old Greenwich roads were not marked as to which detour would actually reach the beach and driftway homes or the park. This resulted in hundreds of cars meandering, trial and error, though the back streets.

Many landed at the beach, where the gates were locked. Much of the Sunday and Monday traffic could have been avoided if a sign at the Old Greenwich Rotary had simply said BEACH CLOSED. Fire trucks were seen heading down unmarked and blocked roads only to discover they, too, could not get through and had to turn around in very tight quarters.

Many of the tree-blocked roads where electric lines were not involved could have been opened relatively easily by a firefighter or a resourceful (and skilled) citizen with a chain saw. Mason Street at Amogerone Crossway is an example.

Again, there was neither coordination nor leadership.

COMMENT:
Stephen Whitaker is Greenwich computer consultant who has requested a copy of the emergency plan twice, but was unsuccessful.
Town records show that the Greenwich Time requested a copy of the town's emergency operation plan, the town's playbook for dealing with various disasters and emergency scenarios, through the Freedom of Information Act. The town denied the request, citing safety concerns.
The Town Has Argued That The Emergency Management Plan Motions Terrorism And Therefore Should Be Exempt From The Greenwich Time's Freedom Of Information Request.
Any So-called "Sensitive Greenwich Anti-Terrorism Plans" Could Be Redacted And The Storm Plans Could Be Turned Over To Stephen Whitaker And The Greenwich Time.
It Appears That The Only Sensitive Information In The Emergency Operation Plan Is Just How Unprepared Peter Tesei's Administration Is.
What Is Peter Tesei Hiding From The Taxpayers Of Greenwich?
How Are Greenwich Residents Supposed To Know If Peter Tesei Has Prepared Properly For Weather Emergencies?
First Selectman Peter Tesei Promised Greenwich Residents Open And Transparent Government.

03/31/10 Greenwich Roundup Reader Comment: Rise in Greenwich teen arrests prompts concern

Dear Greenwich Roundup:

I and many other Greenwich parents are concerned by a recent spike in arrests involving juveniles and drugs or alcohol.

What the Town of Greenwich needs to do is talk to the people with the most influence on our youths –– parents or guardians — and remind them to take the time to talk to their children.

Greenwich parents should not be wondering what their teens are doing. Greenwich teens, like those in other communities, are drinking, experimenting with drugs and having sex.

I think a public meeting is warranted, just look at the number of teenagers who have been arrested over the past three months.

Other teens in Greenwich are being investigated for vandalism.

The job of being a parent is tougher than ever now with youths having cell phones that connect them to the Internet and televisions with hundreds of cable stations.

Many parents also think that the pressure to excel is another contributing factor to teenage substance abuse in town.

Parents should not to be afraid to be nosy, to know where their children are and what’s going on at the houses they visit.

It’s not all right to go away on vacation and leave your teens at home.

And it’s not all right to think that if there’s alcohol everything is going to be OK just because you take everyone’s keys away — it’s not going to be OK.

It is time that First Selectman Peter Tesei enlisted community participation in an effort to keep its teenagers out of trouble.
