Thank you for the update now can we somehow send this message to Norwalk officials.
Crime has increased at the South Norwalk train station,fumes from busses are so bad the Norwalk fire dept has actually responded for the smell of fuel(thnk after the second call someone explained 25 busses on the East bouind side could be the problem) and the traffic in a parking lot where the city removed all cabs all five for regular commuter pickups.Now with busses lining the pickup area its become insane.
The Daily does well better than most medias in Norwalk for timely updates for the rail,could we please get some sort of impact report or article on the quality of life for those who live and commute from this station of horror.
Mayors Rillings environmental task force must be busy setting up information on the continued spills and problems Norwalk experiences on a daily basis leaving the train station issue for the media.
Thnaks again for letting us know about the Danbury line even for those who don't take it living next to the station is enough of an impact to worry that no one cares from the city.
Seems the Norwalk Parking Authority is too busy doing damage control on its operation to notice the problem at the train station as well.Some free parking spots outside the East bound side would help for those waiting for trains that simply don't run on time Those busses take a lot or spaces that once was ours waiting for our loved ones.

Its a shame Gail cant get the three stooges from Norwalk to back her or at least participate in helping Norwalk out.Saying anything negative at this point is expected at those three but I won't.
Gail is trying she is listening she is speaking out and trying to move in any direction that will help us all out.
Thank you Gail,my familiy depends on the rail and so far you have been the only one vocal enough to calm some of our anger on safety and late trains.
This is progress the police are talking to the press.Report as soon as possible would be a suggestion and rule of thumb with some suspects they don't change shoes but they do clothes.
One year they had a sex offender living at a bus stop that was found by the parents where trouble was brewing,they still have site you can check your childs bus stop?
Thank you Dailyvoice for keeping us informed. View Comment
wait until all guests had had a first serving,
We have helped at the shelter before,it was suggested that some guests take the train in from Stamford and Bridgeport in the morning have breakfast then go to the bridge and wait for day work then go home and return the next day.Thats still no reason for this guy to act this way,after this former resident should be a better description gets out of court maybe he will find another shelter Norwalk has its own who deserve help.Its a story that needed to be told.

good point P54 ,are the police waiting for these kids to become seniors before they suggest something like that to the kids?
The only one who seems to care is the media where is the police? Robo calls use to be free once you have the system,does Norwalk still have the system? View Comment
Surprised they didn't drag him near a school as well.This case is still pending maybe by the time it sees a courtroom pot will be legal in Ct and the money he will get won't cover the eye or the job he probably enjoyed.I'm afraid with all the old timers with a lot of class leaving the city will end up with what we are now seeing.This man may just be Norwalks poster for tourism.

The story needs to be told,issues like smoke detetctors to law enforcement entering the picture etc is all life.
Who knows maybe next time someone can step in and prevent this from happening again .Maybe the courts will feel the heat,the firemen did.
Maybe this might make you all understand or remind us all what our first repsonders deal with and have to take home after the shift.
Its election time grants are passed out like candy,our politicians couldn't throw some money to fire and police prevention programs?
Of course its disturbing to read its FAIRFIELD COUNTY.
I agree a sad story second thought was what about the husband ,the father didn't care enough or was he powerless.Maybe its time for society to wake up.Can't change the future unless you know the past.No outside signs of this?Who could of done more the courts?the town?
Heroin use epidemic in Fairfield County another great story where are our politicians with the money they love to throw around election season?
This was for a change a subject that needed to be addresed by Chris,it does give Ct a black eye so lets give him credit for attempting to finger the problem and balme.
but we’re not doing enough to change the way we address this crisis.”
We can look at Himes,Perone,Morris and Fluff and wonder with all the PR they are sucking up where is the funding to comabat the crime itself.Norwalk just had a low level bust,Bridgeport and Stamford is doing its best to combat te problem but you have to question what thh other four are doing.
Timing is great for Chris they have the calender marked its spring its time for the gangs to generate income,not the ones in the CT the ones in NY.They travel by rail come into the cities sell some bulk and leave.View Comment
Ken the story gets worse,first the media was told well after everyone goes home in the school dept.They wern't honest the truth didn't flow right so a reporter went and found the police report.This person was seen twice in two vans on the same corner by the girl and other kids two days in a row.Makes it more credible I think.
To Lady a thanks you show us as well they can't do the job they can't put anything together,The Daily becomes a source for prevention they deserve a thanks as well.
The schools were didn't share the same information between them until a day later it seems who ever is running the show is doing a lousy job of it.The robo call would of made to at least those living near the corner with no kids in school aware no one likes scum like this. View Comment
look forward to doing even more with you in the years ahead.”
Not if those in Norwalk or Darien has someone better to send to the State House and do the job right.His focus is on the State not Norwalk not Darien and voters know this.
The mere fact he help divert millions from the transportation funds for other things leaving what Metro North says is a falling apart train system is proof enough its time to find someone who is sensitive to our needs.This climb to the top is self serving from what we have seen so far. View Comment
Tony Daddona you should step down tell us you didn't know this tuesday when it happened.Norwalk has great faith in our schools and our police dept where was robo call where was our mayor and where was the school dept?
We hear money spent on making schools secure and safe when you have idoits running the show where is the comfort.Where is Morris in all this wasting our time with pre election antics when our kids are not getting the security they deserve.
Don't tell us parents for days when we coud of been loking unstead of the seekend press release showing us image over security.
No one shoulf feel our kids are safe when we have this happening by those who tell us its safe we are all opver it.
Shame on those in charge wasn't your kids in danger,sad nothing has changed the last stool at the Inn must be taken by the new boss.
Suppose the perp now has read this and will pick another school bus stop nice work boys View Comment
Jim good news we can't Blame Morris Perone or Fluff for this one,bad news is we can blame you.
Amtrak train No. 173 stalled twice Tuesday on tracks between Norwalk and Greenwich, the second time stranding passengers for hours. As of 6:30 p.m. the train was stalled in Cos Cob according to several passengers onboard.
“They’re moving people from one train to the next in the middle of the track. I’m on an unventilated, immobile train that has been here for three hours,” said passenger Clariselle Ocasio of Bridgeport, just before 6 p.m. Tuesday.
Lets not be quick to blame the Daily for facts,Norwalk police are doing the best job they can in not admitting crime happens,its budget time and the game is on.Not only that but as in the last mayor bad PR is not what the city needs right now its election year for the State reps who would just forget about Norwalks troubles and pass out grant money as if it was candy for crap we don't need.

We all thankyou for your interest Jim but I spend my time on the train where have you been?
Seems the system needs work,seems our State reps your democratic friends share responsibility in the upkeep of the system you visit I ride.Its election year we know this so maybe you can comment on what your doing about this chaos the rest of us call commuting.
Peter Pan from RI has been hired to transport South Norwalk passengers to and from Danbury the work Ct did on the Danbury branch has failed.
The security the thefts the assaults the whole Metro system has its share of problems daily sometimes hourly.
Your concern to us lacks that genuine touch of honestly and problem solving,you agree with us yet nothing is showing us we have anyone in DC.Then again without Blumenthal we have no one.
Saw you get off the plane with the boss Richard was what busy in DC doing the job we sent him there to do.
Now we have those you should be in touch with back home voting not to fund a broken system.
State Sen. Bob Duff, D-Norwalk, who voted in favor of the budgets and adjustments that shifted transportation revenue for General Fund costs for all four votes, said the 2014-15
Maybe sending more than a morning would be a ggo start in helping us all out,keep talking to Richard I'm sure he can fill you in on what you have missed so far since you were elected. View Comment
Lets not forget our own Bob Fluff who is seen on the shirt tails of Dan all the time.Explain what Darien got from Bob in terms of Metro North help on the rail system when all Bob has done in the last four votes is divert money form the special transportation fund into what Norwalk Schools and fluff? Dan is a problem but those helping him along the way have been with us longer.Sharpen your pencils vote this next election with facts not FLUFF. View Comment
Great article Norwalk has a great stamp club.
Chris A graduate of the University of Michigan School of Art, where he studied illustration and design, Chris Calle has earned an international reputation as a stamp designer. He has created more than 200 stamps for the United Nations program and for countries as diverse as Sweden and the Republic of the Marshall Islands. His outstanding work also appears in many publications and is represented in corporate, private, and museum collections throughout the world. During his first year as a professional illustrator, he was commissioned to create the first of his 31 designs for U.S. postage stamps.
1928 - 2010
Paul Calle also created stamps and was a master of both the oil painting and the pencil drawing. His drawings — often very large — showed incredible control and sensitivity; they had the quality of fine etchings. Few contemporary artists had attained greater mastery of the pencil than Calle, who shared his skills in his book, The Pencil, a record of his odyssey as "an artist with a pencil." It has been translated into French, Chinese and Russian. Calle's oil paintings, finely detailed panoramic landscapes of the majestic West, often took several years to complete. Another book of his art, Paul Calle: An Artist's Journey was awarded the prestigious Benjamin Franklin Award for Fine Arts in 1993.
Here was an Artist whose career strongly reflected the dramatic era in which he lived and worked. Paul lived in Connecticut, but when he was chairman of the Department of Interior's 'Artist in the Parks' program, Paul traveled widely throughout the West. According to Paul, "The portrayal of Western Art is not a romantic adventure, but a realistic challenge - a personal commitment to portray America’s past."
This show is well worth the trip
