11/04/10 Greenwich Resident Linda McMahon Says:"Thank Yo

Linda McMahon For Senate

Dear Greenwich Roundup,

It has been my honor and pleasure to have had the opportunity to run for the United States Senate here in Connecticut.

I couldn't have done it without you. Your faith and trust in me during the past 13 months has meant so very much.

I have thoroughly enjoyed traveling around our beautiful state from the northwest corner, to the quiet corner down along the shoreline and into Fairfield county with points in between. We racked up 52,000 miles on the campaign vehicle but the journey has been a joy.

I am also very proud of the campaign that we have run. Our ground game was tremendous: hardworking volunteers like you knocked on 100,000 doors, made more than 400,000 phone calls and proudly placed countless yard signs in front of your homes and businesses.

My campaign's focus was on economic recovery and job creation, and today, that same focus must remain the top priority of our newly elected officials. Let us all make sure they have our support for the good of our state and our country.

The United States is the best place to live in and I truly believe we as American's have a strength and resolve that will pull us through these next few unpredictable years. We must look ahead and bring ourselves to remember as President Ronald Reagan once said, "If you're afraid of the future, then get out of the way, stand aside. The people of this country are ready to move again."

Thank you all for your heartfelt support and encouragement.

Linda McMahon

11/04/10 Election Wrap Up: Approximately 20,000 residents voted in Greenwich on Tuesday

Tuesday's election featured four residents -- Linda McMahon, Richard Blumenthal, Tom Foley and Jim Himes.

About 58 percent of the town's eligible voters cast a ballot, a good five percentage points lower than the last midterm election in 2006.

The 2008 election, in which Barack Obama was elected, saw an historically high turnout rate in 80 percent range.

All Republicans in town won re-election to the state general assembly.

L. Scott Frantz, defeated Nancy Barton in the state Senate's 36th District while Livvy Floren, R-149th District, and Alfred Camillo, R-151st District. Lile Gibbons, R-150th District, was unopposed.

There were no ballot problems in Greenwich, but there were problems in Bridgeport.

Greenwich ordered 30,000 ballots, the ballots cost 50 cents each and are ordered from New Britain-based Adkins Printing Company.

In Bridgeport, only 21,000 ballots were ordered for nearly 70,000 registered voters.

Investigative Business Reporter Charged In Facebook Posting

A Former Greenwich Time Investigative Business Reporter has been arrested for allegedly publishing information about a Wall Street Big Shots 17-year-old daughter on the social networking site Facebook.

Teri A. Buhl, 38, of Locust Avenue, was charged last Thursday with second-degree harassment, second-degree breach of peace and interfering with an officer. Buhl turned herself in to police on a warrant.

Police said the investigation began in June when they received a complaint from a 17-year-old girl who reported that personal information about her was posted on Facebook.

The information, police said, stated that the girl attended a party where alcohol was illegally being consumed and also supposedly included inappropriate sexual comments.

The Facebook posting has been taken down, yet maybe made available if this journalist is cleared on first amendment grounds.

The 17 year old girl was a former New Canaan High School student has given the school a black eye, because of its failure to help stem the tide of underage student drinking.

Police obtained court orders to identify who was responsible for the posting and identified Buhl.

Buhl was released on $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear Nov. 9 at Norwalk Superior Court.

Drinking in the ‘burbs

By Teri Buhl

Should Fairfield County Parents take more Action to Stop Underage Drinking?

By Teri Buhl

Early this year Greenwich Magazine named Fairfield County the number ONE underage drinking capital in America. Surprised? New Canaan, CT was named the number two city in the state for underage high school drinking. It’s an issue often gossiped about at dinner parties after a teenager gets alcohol poisoning or a friend’s daughter get taken advantage of by a boy – but a subject often investigated in the local media. The State even passed a law a few years ago giving local cops the right charge Parents who know underage drinking is going on in their home, allow their kids to host drinking parties, or supply alcohol for a party and then leave, with fines from a misdemeanor to a felony. Yet few families in the towns of Greenwich, Darien, New Canaan (who I’ve been polling) have ever been charged since the law took effect.

Over a year ago I started to get complaints about a few Wall Streeters I’ve covered in my finance reporting, allowing their kids to host drinking parties. I started to track the cases where local high school students were boasting about their drinking on their Facebook or MySpace pages and their parents were visible witnesses. I was even able to document a few case where parents filed police reports about missing property during one of these parties, but the local cops did not pursue or charge the parent with allowing the party to happen in the first place . An outgoing Patch editor let me know they’ve also been getting the similar complaints and watched the cops in their town refuse to enforce the law even though they had clear evidence of its violation. It’s an investigation that’s sensitive and I’m often surprised at parents who will complain about this issue but get a shy look on their face when I ask them to go on the record to talk about another parent or their neighbors’ involvement in underage drinking.

I grew up in a zero tolerance home in Southern California and came up with all kinds of creative ways to hide my partying for my eagle eye mother. I can’t imagine what could have happen if there were not strict boundaries set for me. But even then we didn’t have laws telling my parents they couldn’t let me drink at home and have friends over so they could monitor it. In New Canaan, they’ve recently raised private funds to host 8-week classes for parents on why they shouldn’t allow underage drinking and how they can effect change in their community to get other parents to stop it.

But I have to wonder if the State has gone too far in setting up laws that tell parents how to parent on issue like teen drinking. I’m still working on this story and would love to hear from parents who read this blog if you have stories about other adults turning a blind eye to underage drinking or if you think the current laws that can charge adults for their kids’ actions are just unnecessary. All conversations will be kept confidential unless you choose to speak out. You can reach me at: teribuhl@gmail.com


For her part, Buhl explains why she was arrested in the comments in the article about her investigation.

She says it's a simple case of Wall Street parents trying to keep their names out of the press.

Teri Buhl Has posted:

Yep – they arrested me.

It was quite the surprise. I haven’t even seen the warrant yet or had a chance to enter a plea of not guilty...

I firmly believe this is nothing more then a case of small town cops harassing a journalist over first amendment rights while protecting sources and a few Wall Street parents trying to keep their and their 18 year old daughters’ name out of a story about what happens when adults let underage drinking go unchecked.

One local New Canaan cop threaten me with charges if I didn’t offer up my sources a few months ago but I had no idea they’d go this far.

Teri Buh goes to trial next week
