Hi

I never saw anything in the Greenwich Time about this.

It had to be around Mar/Apr. of '96; My Dad was involved in local politics for many years and I walked in on a conversation between he and a local Lawyer; apparently a high ranking official had "borrowed" a town car to attend a convention somewhere down south; after a night of drinking, he apparently hit a woman...

I believe she died...

Did you ever hear about this?

Dear Anon,

No I never heard about this.

Perhaps some of our readers know of this

I did know that in the mid to late 90's a car hit several parked cars on Mill Street in Byram and then slamed into a deli

The deli was closed for months, but there was never an article in the Greenwich Citizen, the Greenwich Post or the Greenwich Time.

Some say the driver was a the family member of a Greenwich Police officer, others say the driver was a drunk Greenwich Police officer.

How can a car plow into a building and not get reported in the local newspapers or WGCH?

A couple of days ago a car crashed into Milburn, NJ Building

Executive Corner Deli & Catering now stands at the 229 Mill Street crash site

So it's possible that the incident that you mention occurred and was covered up.

So many things are covered up in Greenwich.

Over the last few days, Greenwich Roundup has been talking
about how the Hamilton Avenue School PTA
is covering up where the $59,000
that was earned at Harborfest went.

Yet not one Ham Ave PTA Board Member
or Ham Ave School official
has commented about

No one wants to report who got paid

Hedge mogul beats DC in slick $64M tax scheme

By KAJA WHITEHOUSE


Billionaire hedge fund mogul Eddie Lampert has outsmarted lawmakers and come up with a way around a planned tax hike on earnings for hedge funds and private equity firms -- saving himself about $64 million.

The 47-year old financial whiz side-stepped the likely higher tax bill by having his Greenwich, Conn., hedge fund firm, ESL Partners, distribute roughly $837 million in stock to him personally last week -- a move that will allow him to pay the lower capital gains tax rate compared to the higher regular income tax rate had the fund distributed cash.....

...Street insiders expect a parade of financial titans to follow Lampert's lead, which could throw a wrench in lawmakers' plans to plug the deficit with additional tax revenue.

At one point, lawmakers predicted the higher tax rate on hedge funds and private equity firms could translate into $17.7 billion in added revenue over 11 years....

....At a 25 percent tax rate, Lampert would fork over $111.2 million of that to Uncle Sam. At 15 percent, the bill is $66.7 million. There are comparable savings for the Sears and AutoNation stakes.....

06/09/10 Too Many Things Get Swept Under The Rug In Greenwich

I believe she died...
