09/08/11 The Greenwich 9/11 Fraud Continues In Cromwell, Connecticut


Cromwell to host 9/11 remembrance event

CROWMELL — A unique remembrance ceremony, timed to the moment the first plane crashed into the World Trade Center, will be held Sunday morning at the Willowbrook Plaza.

Twenty-five specially made US flags will be flown during the ceremony, which was arranged by Jay Polke, the owner of the Willowbrook Spirit Shoppe.

“The flags of honor were created by my cousin, John Michelotti, an artist from Greenwich (CT),” Polke explained.

“They contain the names of all the people (who) died that day from the terrorist attacks on the trade center,” Polke continued. “The nearly 3,000 names of the victims are located in the stripes of the flags.”

At 8:46 a.m. on Sunday, 10 years to the minute when American Airlines Flight 11 struck the North Tower, the National Anthem will be sung at the Plaza by Polke’s grandson, Michael Slifer, and his girlfriend, Payton Mayzel.

“Anyone who would like to stop by is welcome to walk amongst the flags and the read the names of the people who died that day,” Polke said. The flags will remain at the plaza until sunset, he added.

A display of nearly 3,000 of Michelotti’s flags has been installed at Battery Park in Manhattan, not far from Ground Zero, Polke added.

09/08/11 GOOD NEWS: Aquarion Water Co. Expects To Finish Installing The 8-Inch Water Main On Riversville Road Next Week

Water Company On Track To Finish A Week Early

Monday and Tuesday are planned for the installation of the 8-inch main, along with paving and concrete work. On Wednesday, a 6-inch pipe and new hydrant will be installed. Renovation work on the section of road where the work occurred will take place Thursday and Friday.

Work began Aug. 22 at the intersection of Glenville and Riversville roads following a pair of water main breaks earlier this summer.

The work was expected to be completed Sept. 30, but the company said last week it expected to finish a week ahead of schedule.

The July 28 and Aug. 6 water main breaks led to extended road closures and severe traffic congestion in the area. The most severe break occurred July 28, leading to a shutdown of the busy western Greenwich intersection for more than 24 hours.

Aquarion officials said they believe repair work from the first break led to a second rupture on Aug. 6, along Riversville Road near the intersection with Glenville Road.

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy today announced that because a major disaster was declared by President Obama in the State of Connecticut due to Tropical Storm Irene, Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA) is available to residents of all eight Connecticut counties, including self-employed individuals, who are unemployed as a direct result of damages caused by the storm.

Individuals eligible for DUA benefits are those who work or live in one of the federally declared counties and lost their jobs directly due to the disaster. Those eligible may also include:

* Individuals unable to reach their job because they must travel through the affected area and are prevented by doing so by the disaster.

* Individuals who were to commence employment but were prevented by the disaster.

* Individuals who became the major support for a household because of the death of the head of the household as a result of the disaster.

* Individuals who cannot work because of an injury caused as a direct result of the disaster.

The DUA program is a part of the federal disaster assistance process but is administered by the Connecticut Department of Labor. Before an individual can be determined eligible for DUA, it must be established by the Department of Labor that the individual is otherwise not eligible for regular unemployment insurance benefits under any state or federal law.

Residents who lost their jobs due to this disaster should file a claim with their local TeleBenefits line, which can be found in the blue pages of telephone directories, on the Department of Labor’s website at http://www.ct.gov/dol, or by dialing the state Infoline at 2-1-1.

Under federal guidelines, the deadline for filing for DUA benefits is October 6, 2011. Claims filed after the deadline may be ineligible for payment.
