06/25/10 Prince Harry Is Coming To Greenwich This Saturday.

Prince Harry plans to participate in the third annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic on Sunday at Governors Island in New York Harbor.

The polo event will benefit American Friends of Sentebale, the U.S. arm of the global charity co-founded by Harry that supports impoverished children of Lesotho in southern Africa.The prince is holding a reception for the event Saturday evening in Greenwich, Conn.

Harry is the younger son of Charles, Prince of Wales, and the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

Also, Harry will throw out a first pitch at a Mets baseball game against the Minnesota Twins on Saturday and take part in a UNICEF event.

On Sunday, he will walk with wounded veterans participating in a road race through Central Park.

What Brings The Prince To America's Shores?

Prince Harry Joins US Army Training Tt West Point

WEST POINT, N.Y. — Britain's Prince Harry, no stranger to military exercises, joined cadets training at the U.S. Military Academy on Friday at the start to his three-day visit to New York.

Harry, third in line to the British throne, arrived by helicopter at the storied military grounds just after 1:30 p.m. The camouflage-uniformed prince hopped on the back of a Humvee, swapped his light blue beret for a helmet and headed out for live-fire exercises on the artillery range and field exercises in nearby woods.

He was met by West Point Superintendent Lt. Gen. Franklin L. "Buster" Hagenbeck and others.

The drills were held some 40 miles north of New York City, but they may seem familiar to the 25-year-old prince. Harry attended the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst and is a lieutenant in the British Army.

Harry served in Afghanistan in 2008 as a battlefield air controller until his time was cut short by a media leak. He has made no secret of his desire to return to the front lines, and the decision last month by British Army commanders to train him as an Apache attack helicopter pilot could make that more likely.

After West Point, Harry heads to another military-themed event on the flight deck of Manhattan's Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, a retired aircraft carrier, where he will promote cooperation between U.S. and British veteran organizations.

06/25/10 Did Greenwich Millionaire Ned Lamont Send A Film Crew To Ex-Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy's House?

If you want to know what's really going on in Greenwich, then you have to read the out of town newspapers....

"Lights, Camera, Action!"

The campaign season is starting to get explosive, just in time for the Fourth of July. Crank up those fireworks. Check this out from columnist Kevin Rennie at the Hartford Courant:

A film crew appeared on the street in front of Democrat Dan Malloy’s house this week. His campaign didn’t send it. The videographers set up, rolled ‘em, and left. It wasn’t subtle, though they could have waited until Thursday and used an iPhone 4 and never left their car.

Prime suspect: the Lamont campaign. Malloy is on the air with a soft bio ad that features the house he grew up in. The one he lives in now is rather grander. Of course, there was also that investigation four years ago of renovations to his house by a contractor who also did work for the city of Stamford, which Malloy lead as mayor at the time. Malloy cooperated and was found to have done nothing wrong. To his credit, Malloy seemed eager to provide investigators with reams of information. The Lamont campaign will be waiting to launch if they feel a Malloy breakout coming on.

The Lamont campaign hasn’t responded to an inquiry on whether that was its crew at Malloy’s house. We’ll update if it does.

In the meantime, candidates might want to keep their lawn mowed and gardens weeded. Blooming flowers and a trimmed lawn can keep an opponent from making it look like you live at the Bates’ house.

Statement from Roy Occhiogrosso, senior advisor for Malloy campaign:

“Two pretty simple questions for Ned Lamont: did your campaign pay to have someone film and take photographs of Dan Malloy’s house? If so, why?”
