Roundup: Dogs, Dr. Scott Gottlieb, More


It’s that time of year again. Dogs can return to Compo Beach.

Starting Thursday (October 1) through March 31, canines are prohibited from the Compo Beach pavilion, playground and boardwalk.

They must be leashed everywhere else — except south of the pavilion (including South Beach). Regulations are posted at the entrance to the off-leash areas.

from October 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021 the following regulations will be in effect for Compo Beach.

Of course, you are required to pick up your pooch’s poop everywhere.

Violations of any dog regulations are subject to a $77 fine.

The backdrop was gorgeous, but the news was grim yesterday as Dr. Scott Gottlieb was interviewed on “Face the Nation.”

Speaking from outside his Westport home, President Trump’s former FDA commissioner warned that the country is heading toward a “very dangerous” phase of the COVID pandemic.

And finally … Miles Davis died 29 years ago today. The legendary jazz trumpeter, bandleader and composer was 65.
