http://greenwichroundup.blogspot.com/2011/09/090211-bill-effros-please-change-public.html


Please change the location of the upcoming "Public Information Forum on the Environmental Impact at Greenwich High School" scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, September 7, 2011 at Greenwich High School.

As an abutting neighbor, I clearly have a direct interest in the information disseminated.

The Town of Greenwich Police have stated I will be arrested if I so much as set foot on the High School property.

The MISA Building Committee and the PTA are aware of this, and it has been confirmed by the Chief of Police, the First Selectman, the Board of Education, and the Legal Department.

I have a right to participate in the planned public forum.

Please change this public meeting location so I can attend.

Bill Effros
GHS Abutting Property Owner

GHS grants access to neighbor banned from campus for meeting

Public forum on soil contamination: GHS allows homeowner charged in '09 trespassing incident to attend meeting


By Neil Vigdor, Greenwich Time - Staff Writer

The owner of a residential property abutting Greenwich High School who was banned from campus two years ago after he was arrested for trespassing there will be allowed back on the grounds for an upcoming public forum on soil contamination discovered at the site.

Bill Effros appealed to school board members by e-mail Friday to allow him to attend the information session, scheduled for 7 to 9 p.m. Sept. 7 in the GHS auditorium.

His property at 41 Old Church Road is adjacent to the school's athletic fields, all but one of which remain closed as a safety precaution after toxins were found this summer during initial construction of a new campus auditorium.

Town Attorney John Wayne Fox sent Effros a reply Friday afternoon telling him the town would temporarily lift the ban, which he said stemmed from the 2009 trespassing incident.

"He is a neighbor," Fox told Greenwich Time. "He has a right to be informed of the process that we are pursuing."

Effros called on the school board to change the meeting location.
"As an abutting neighbor, I clearly have a direct interest in the information disseminated," Effros wrote. "The Town of Greenwich Police have stated I will be arrested if I so much as set foot on the High School property."

Effros was charged with first-degree trespass and breach of peace June 23, 2009, after he refused to leave the high school property on orders of police who found him taking photos and video of construction work there, according to an arrest report.

He still contends that it was his legal right to be at the high school to gather evidence for separate contempt-of-court rulings that he planned to file against the town.....

09/04/11 Greenwich "High Society Blogger" Chris Fountain Reports On A a Greenwich “High Society Patent Lawyer” Named Dwight Renfrew

I have no idea what a high society patent lawyer is, but at least he is from Greenwich

Dwight (without the hat) takes client for a ride

Anyone ever hear of Dwight Renfrew? Or ever heard of a patent lawyer (!) being a member of “high society”? Must live on Round Hill.

UPDATE: As I hope my comments make clear, I’m really just joshing the New York Post. Their reporters see the word “Greenwich” and automatically add clichés like “high society”. Idiots.

09/04/11 An estimated 125 Connecticut Light A Power Customers In Greenwich Are Still Without Power As Of 7 PM Sunday

That number of power outages represents .45 percent of CL&P's 27,900 customers in Greenwich. CL&P is slowly making progress.

The Rumor That CL&P Crews Wont Be Working The Holiday Weekend Is False

A major restoration project on North Street currently underway. Once the North Street restoration is done, about 50 additional Greenwich CL&P customers will have their power back, he said.

POWER WILL NOT BE RESTORED FOR ANOTHER 28 HOURS

All customers in town are expected to have power by 11 p.m. tomorrow.

About 21,000 customers statewide are still without power as of Sunday evening, Gross said.

CL&P's standard operating procedure to complete a comprehensive follow-up report examining preparation for, and restoration after, a severe situation such as the one seen with Tropical Storm Irene.

The rumor that CL&P crews might not be working the holiday weekend is false

Greenwich residents are keeping a close eye on Hurricane Katia, which some forecasters have making a hard right into the Atlantic before the storm can reach the Eastern Seaboard.

Everyone in Greenwich hopes that they are right.
