Billboard bears names of 9/11 victims

Artist John Michelotti created Flag of Honor

INDIAN ORCHARD, Mass. (WWLP) - A billboard overlooking the Ludlow Bridge has been garnering plenty of attention this week.

The Flag of Honor contains the names of all the people killed in the September 11th attacks. It was created by artist John Michelotti in Greenwich, Connecticut....

KA CHING!!! KA CHING!!! KA CHING!!!

MICHELOTTI GETS MORE 9/11 CASH !!!!

...Rick's Auto Body paid the artist for rights to use the artwork in the billboard, which they say is their way of paying tribute to the lives lost that fateful day. "We bought the rights to a canvas, the canvas is actually given to a family of the next of kin of a 9/11 victim, with a letter stating who it came from.....

09/09/11 Students Trying To Get Around Parking Restrictions At GHS By Parking At The Middle School The Town Has A Clear Message For Them: "NO!!!"

At the request of the Board of Education, the Board of Selectman unanimously approved temporary parking restrictions for Central Middle School to prevent students from nearby GHS from parking there and then walking the rest of the way.

Under the new restrictions, all Central Middle School faculty and staff will receive temporary permits. This will allow the district to create a spreadsheet with license numbers, permit numbers and staff names that police will use to make sure no one is parking improperly at the school.

The town’s Parking Enforcement Officers will then patrol the area with assistance from Greenwich High School security.

Senior parking at GHS has been temporarily suspended while work continues in removing contaminated soil from the school grounds. The soil was first discovered during work on a new parking lot for the school’s music instructional space and auditorium (MISA) project earlier this summer, forcing the work on the western parking lot to be immediately ceased and rescheduled for summer 2012. Thousands of tons of contaminated soil and fill are now being removed from the area with dozens of trucks operating daily.

Currently parking is only allowed for faculty and administration. Students who previously were able to drive to school face the prospect of now taking the school bus.

BOE Officials say, that the PCB tainted lot will be back in use for students by the end of September.

More than 3,000 tons of soil had been removed so far in approximately 100 truck loads.

By last Friday, most of the pile of soil was gone and Mr. Ross said he was hopeful the other materials could also be removed by the end of this week or the start of next week.

However simply removing the piles is not the end of the work since there have to be clearances given that the current soil conditions pose no health risk to students.

There were extra police officers on the scene along with school security to help direct traffic.

There supposedly were two school buses, one on each end of town, ready to respond if there is not enough room on the existing routes to accommodate the extra students.

The selectmen quickly approved the restrictions without debate at their September 1st meeting.

The restrictions on Central Middle School can be lifted at the discretion of Superintendent of Schools Roger Lulow and it is expected they will be ended once the GHS lot is open for student use again.

09/09/11 GOVENOR MALLOY ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF SEPTEMBER 11

Sunday: Flags at Half-Staff; Moment of Silence at 8:46 a.m.

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy released the following statement in remembrance of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001:

“Ten years ago, the world, the country and our state changed forever. As the Mayor of Stamford at that time, I recall going to the train station to wait for the trains coming home from New York City, watching some of the people get off covered in soot and dust, and sending first responders to New York City to help with the response. In some ways, that day feels like it happened a long time ago; in other ways, it seems like it happened yesterday. Regardless of how many years go by, time does little to erase our memories of that day and for those who lost loved ones, the memories they have of that person or people will live on forever; their grief is our grief. Ten years later, we remember the countless, selfless acts of bravery and courage undertaken that day by so many men and women – and most especially, but not limited to, uniformed personnel who made the ultimate sacrifice. And we of course think daily of the men and women serving in the Armed Forces who have sacrificed their own lives on behalf of our own. Our world is different, our country was impacted, and our state was forever altered, but ten years later, I remain convinced of our resiliency and determination to move forward from this terrible tragedy.”

In recognition of Honor or Heroes and Remembrance Day, Governor Malloy has directed flags to fly at half-staff on Sunday, September 11, and asks residents to observe a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., the time American Airlines flight 11 struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

Flags will return to full staff at sunset on Sunday.

09/09/11 The Greenwich Time Crime Reporter Just Got Scooped Again: Anonymous Tip Leads To Pot Bust On Valleywood Road Drug Factory (Updated)

HEARST NEWSPAPER EDITOR DAVID McCUMBER IS A SLEEP AT THE SWITCH AS THE GREENWICH PATCH REPORTS:

Three Greenwich Men Arrested On Drug Charges; One Charged With Operating A Drug Factory

Photo: Tito H. JaramilloDepartment

When a resident noticed some suspicious activity going on at 36 Valleywood Road, they notified authorities via the Greenwich Police Department’s anonymous tip line.

On Thursday, those tips — and the lengthy investigation that followed — resulted in the arrest of three Greenwich men on drug charges and the eradication of an alleged “drug factory” inside the residence, where one of the suspects was reportedly dealing marijuana out of his rented space.

Tito H. Jaramillo, 20, of 36 Valleywood Road was arrested and charged with cultivation of marijuana, operating a drug factory, conspiracy at sale of marijuana, criminal attempt at sale of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The remaining two Greenwich residents were arrested while allegedly either buying or attempting to buy marijuana from Jaramillo at his residence.

John M. Caldwell, 21, of 47 Connecticut Avenue, was arrested and charged with conspiracy at possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and conspiracy at sale of marijuana.

Edward G. Davis, 22, of 31 Park Ave., Old Greenwich, was arrested and charged with conspiracy at sale of marijuana, conspiracy at possession of marijuana, and possession of marijuana.

Police said in addition to the anonymous tips, the arrests are the result of time-consuming detective work, including long stakeouts and surveillance that started in early August.

Police said during the month of August the GPD Narcotics Section “received multiple anonymous complaints regarding drug activity at 36 Valleywood Road. These anonymous complaints were received via the Greenwich Police Department anonymous email tips line (tips@greewnichct.org) as well as the anonymous tips phone line (203-622-3333).”

Members of the Narcotic Section conducted “countless hours” of video surveillance on the residence. Police said during the investigation, detectives observed Jaramillo making drug deals out in the open, in front of his residence. With this evidence, police sought, and were granted, a warrant to search the residence, as well as Jaramillo.

Police said on Sept. 8, at 7:30 p.m., detectives observed Jaramillo exit his residence and conduct a transaction with John Caldwell. They were subsequently arrested. Police said both Jaramillo and Caldwell were in possession of marijuana and cash — however as of press time police had not calculated quantities. Police said the amount of marijuana being cultivated, and the amount of cash seized, was “small.”

Police said immediately following the arrest, Jaramillo’s cell phone started receiving text messages from a subject who had already negotiated a drug transaction with Jaramillo. Police said the text message indicated that the subject was about to pull onto Valleywood Road to purchase drugs from Jaramillo.

Police identified the subject as Edward G. Davis in the street as he drove up to the house. Police said Davis told them he was going to purchase marijuana from Jaramillo and Davis. Police said Davis’ cell phone records verify his statements. Davis was subsequently arrested.

All three men were released on bond and are scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 22.

“It should be noted that Jaramillo conducted hand to hand drug transactions in broad daylight in this residential, family oriented neighborhood,” police said in their report. “The assistance provided by the residents of the community by providing anonymous tips and information was essential to the safe and successful conclusion of this investigation. The anonymous information received provided detectives with the ability to pinpoint times and locations of the activity resulting in these arrests. The assistance made our community a safer place to live.”

Police said the investigation is ongoing and they expect to make more arrests in connection with the case.

THE GREENWICH TIME CRIME REPORTER
SHOWS UP ABOUT FOUR HOURS LATER

Alleged drug dealer, customers nabbed in Cos Cob

Frank MacEachern, Staff Writer


A man police said brazenly made daytime drug sales in a Cos Cob residential neighborhood was arrested Thursday evening following an investigation that began in August following anonymous tips by residents......

....Tito H. Jaramillo, 20, of 36 Valleywood Drive is facing nine charges in connection with possession, distribution, manufacturing and sale of marijuana. He was released after posting a $25,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in state Superior Court in Stamford Sept. 22.

Two customers were also nabbed after police pounced on Jaramillo around 7:30 p.m.
Police also arrested two customers who allegedly arrived on the scene to buy drugs, John M. Caldwell, 21, of 47 Connecticut Ave., and Edward Gorton Davis, 22, of 31 Park Ave.

Caldwell and Davis are each charged with one count of possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of conspiracy. Both men were released on a promise to appear in state Superior Court in Stamford Sept. 22...

...Police were surreptitiously watching the residence around 7:30 p.m. when they noticed Jaramillo leave the home and engage in a "hand-to-hand exchange" with Caldwell before stepping in and arresting both men, police said.

Just after the arrest, another customer began sending text messages to Jaramillo stating he would be arriving soon to make a purchase.

The customer, whom police said was Davis, was met on the street by waiting Narcotics Section members.

Police said Davis admitted he was there to buy drugs and gave police his cell phone, which had the text messages to Jaramillo on it....

...Police will use cell phone records to aid them in the investigation,

09/09/11 Tod Laudonia Is A Disaster With Statements Going Out Late, Lost Taxpayers' Checks, And Is Unqualified, Inept And Unconcerned About Taxpayers


Tod Laudonia Is Seriously Deficient For The
Job Of Tax Collector And We Can Do Better.


To the editor:

Lou Caravella was a hard act to follow for tax collector. Tod Laudonia was again nominated by the Republican Town Committee for tax collector in spite of a disastrous first term replete with statements going out late, lost taxpayers' checks, and lack of information; coupled with a surprising disregard for the general confusion and inconvenience that ensued.

He has been unqualified, inept and unconcerned. Tod Laudonia is seriously deficient for this job and we can do better.

We are very fortunate to have a candidate of Bill Grad's qualifications for tax collector. He has the credentials, ability and character for the job. He has degrees from Princeton and Stanford, where he developed critical thinking and problem solving expertise.

He has lived in Greenwich for 30 years and knows the town well. Bill Grad has an outstanding record in both business and the community. He has also completed the first two of four classes for tax collector certification.

The office of tax collector is not a policy-making position and therefore should not be subject to partisan politics. Running our town's tax department does require an experienced skilled manager. Bill has a proven management track record and strong financial experience.

Take a moment to consider voting for the most qualified candidate. Whom would you hire if you had a firm needing a financial manager? Please think outside of the party box. Bill Grad does.

Please support Bill Grad for tax collector on Nov. 8.

09/09/11 Late-Night Bar Crowds Swell After 2 AM, When Degenerate Greenwich Alcoholic Drinkers Head Over State Lines Into Port Chester

Can Port Chester Stop The 2 AM Bar Influx From Greenwich's Party Hardy Alcoholics?

Just over the border in Connecticut, 1:30 a.m. marks last call at drinking at most drinking establishments.

Once the clock hits 2 a.m., the lights go out and bar patrons shuffle out of places in Stamford, Norwalk and Greenwich. And if they plan to continue their revelry, the most convenient place to go is Port Chester.

Out-of-towners arrive en masse on weekend nights, bar-hopping across state lines to take advantage of the fact that drinking establishments here in New York stay open two hours later than their Connecticut counterparts.

Along with their money and thirst for beer, some patrons also bring their appetite for conflict. That was the case this past weekend, when more than two dozen people were involved in a brawl outside Adee Street bar La Grotta. Victims told police they were attacked by large groups of drunk, roving men using makeshift weapons like rock-filled socks and metal bars.

Although police did not release the names of those involved because the combatants scattered and no arrests were made, Port Chester police took witness statements and noted that every person involved gave addresses in Stamford, Norwalk and Greenwich, with the exception of one victim who was from Port Chester.

Long-time residents and those who pass through Port Chester during late night hours are probably familiar with police roadblocks set up on Hillside Avenue, less than a mile from the border that separates the village from Greenwich.....

Rabbi's Weekly Teaching

Parashat Ki Teitzei

Friday, September 9th, 2011

As we commemorate the 10th anniversary of the horror of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks, I am mindful of the Torah verse: "God is at war with Amalek for all generations."

According to rabbinic tradition, Amalek rises to attack the innocent in each generation, and it is our responsibility to ever be prepared and vigilant in effectively combating this terror.

In Deuteronomy chapter 25, Moses instructs us about Amalek and our need to commit Amalek's hateful actions to memory: "Remember what Amalek did to you on the road, on your way out of Egypt. That they encountered you on the way and cut off those lagging to your rear, when you were tired and exhausted; they did not fear God. Therefore . . . you must obliterate the memory of Amalek from under the heavens. Do not forget."

Amalek has become the religious metaphor for any individual, groups, or nations that turn their back on ethical monotheism in the desire to eliminate other nations who differ from them, or disagree with them. Amalek will use any methods to secure their ultimate goal. They will hide behind half-truths, doubts, and indecision. They will wait patiently in ambush; letting time pass, until more evil can be done, more chaos created, more lives destroyed.

A person who emulates Amalek preys upon the innocent and the naïve; they hope to ever increase the vulnerability of those they hate. So we are commanded by God to never forget the evil done, lest we become victims again.

In Torah, we are also told to "obliterate the memory" of Amalek, and thus, we are offered what seems on the surface to be an impossible dilemma. God and Moses frame the challenge for us: how can we manage to "obliterate the memory," and yet, simultaneously fulfill the divine commandment to "never forget?"

The answer of our tradition is that we cannot forget the evil that has been done, but at the same time, we must refuse to allow evil to paralyze our own ability to move forward, continuing as a people and as a holy nation to bring God's light into the world. We must hate the evil, but we must even more forcefully create, love, affirm, and empower the good.

Islamic fundamentalism has a terrible consequence, but so can Jewish, Christian, or any other variety of religious, secular or patriotic fundamentalism. While we must remain ever vigilant against the fundamentalism that lead to acts of destruction, and believe our enemies when they say they hate us and wish us to disappear; we must also forcefully pursue every opportunity to meaningfully engage in dialogue with individuals with whom we might disagree, but who also do not wish to see us disappear.

During that horrible day, September 11th, ten years ago, we saw the worst of humanity. But, ironically, we also saw some of humanity's most righteous behavior in the response to the attacks and in their aftermath. Faith - not just religious faith, but faith in humanity, and in the good that exists in every human being - brought consolation and hope to New York, Washington, DC, Shanksville, Pennsylvania and a nation that had been plunged into fear and despair. In the immediate aftermath of the attacks, new conversations took place and new understandings were born out of old prejudices.

In the American Muslim world, I shared many forums in the aftermath with local Muslim leaders. The most striking line that my friend, Dr. Kareem Adeeb of the Stamford Islamic Center noted in our main sanctuary: "The terrorists did more than hijack those planes; they hijacked my religion."

We combat Amalek by distinguishing between those who really hate, and those who peacefully disagree. If we fail in vigilance; we sin. If we fail in tolerance; we sin. It's a difficult, narrow bridge to cross, but it remains our daily challenge.

As Rabbi Nachman of Bratislav teaches: All the world is a narrow bridge; but the important thing is to not be afraid. In bridging the distance between ourselves and those to whom we can turn in friendship and fellowship, cultivating loyalty to and respect for one another by lovingly acknowledging our differences and disagreements, we will rise fearlessly and full of hope to the challenge of defeating and disarming the Amaleks of our generation.

Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Mitch

A Prayer of Remembrance - 9/11/01

Lord,
Source of Life, Creator of all flesh,
From out of the depths we call unto you.
Protect us from the hand of all our enemies.
Comfort Your children who now stand alone
without parent or brother or sister or child.

Strengthen us to stand with those orphaned by this attack on our country.
This country, our country, shelter of peace to the downtrodden,
which has gathered in millions of the peoples of the world
stands as a beacon of light and justice,
but today is dimmed with horror and tragedy.

New York and Washington, shining cities,
Diminished like Jerusalem after the destruction of the holy Temple,
need Your comfort, and our aid;
help us to maintain our courage and our efforts to support our people.

Strengthen the hands of those who defend this country,
and those who try to maintain peace against these attacks.
Teach us to speak to our children
with love and support and courage and understanding,
for we are all fearful, although their fears may not be our fears.

Gain for us a heart of wisdom,
that we may act out of compassion and thoughtfulness,
and not out of anger or prejudice.

Accept with mercy our prayers for our country and
its government for its president, judges, officials and
institutions who faithfully toil for the good of our country.

May they, with Your guidance, lead us back to lives
of peace in a land we have come to love.
