World War II Veterans Embark On Trip to Pearl Harbor

Congratulations to New Canaan High School graduate and ABC House of New Canaan alumnus Elijah Westbrook on making great inroads with his budding broadcasting career. Since doing a summer internship with CBS News program “48 Hours,” the Quinnipiac University grad has taken a position with the CBS affiliate WROC in Rochester, N.Y. The video above is a feature story from Westbrook regarding veterans’ marking Pearl Harbor Day. ***

For the second straight year, New Canaan Police Sgt. Aaron LaTourette won the annual Commissioner’s Shoot Award, sponsored by the Perkin family. This year, LaTourette also took home the Perkin Shoot Trophy, and his name will be engraved on a bowl marking his achievements.

New Canaan Hasn’t Raised Parking Fines in 10 Years


New Canaan hasn’t raised parking fines in 10 years, prompting town officials to consider whether it’s time to do so. Fines currently range from $15 (parking on a curb or too far from it, for example) to $75 (parking in a handicapped zone if you’re not allowed). A complete list of violations and fines can be found here. The Parking Bureau now is looking into how New Canaan’s practices compare to nearby towns, according to Karen Miller, the bureau’s supervisor. By Town Charter, the Parking Commission is charged with recommending parking rules and fees.
