Roundup: Lamont Shops, Squash Studies …

=======================================================

The borders of State Representative Jonathan Steinberg’s 136th District have shifted slightly, though it still includes only Westport. He’s lost some area in the western part of town, and gained some voters in the east — all the way to the Fairfield town line.

State Representative Stephanie Thomas’ Norwalk-based 143rd District has changed significantly. She gained some additional voters in Westport and a large number of new voters in Norwalk. They replace Wilton, which has become an entirely new district.

The other day, Governor Ned Lamont stopped in downtown Westport.

He — and actress Eva Amurri, who lives a few steps from Main Street — visited local businesses, like Indigo Wellness, Kerri Rosenthal and The Toy Post.

Trailed by a camera crew, they shot a video to promote stores and services like those. Amurri has been a big booster of shopping local.

For Lamont, it was a homecoming of sorts. Years ago, he lived right here in Westport.

Staples squash, in action.

Today’s “Westport … Naturally” features one more turkey shot.

Perhaps “shot” is not the best word. At any rate, here are 2 of about 30 turkey vultures perched — a couple of days before Thanksgiving — near Long Lots Road.

And finally … happy 82nd birthday to the terrifically talented Tina Turner!

  1. Dan: confused re: redistricting.

    I’m up the hill from Elvira’s. Who do I complain to now?

    Thanks and enjoy the holiday.

    Stephanie
