Here's what made news this week:

In Norwalk, local legislators backed former police chief Harry Rilling for mayor.  State Senator Bob Duff and State Representatives Chris Perone and Bruce Morris endorsed the democratic candidate Tuesday at City Hall. 

 "It is now time unite behind a candidate. One who has the best vision for Norwalk. One who has the grass-roots support in our community and one who can lead us towards a better tomorrow." said State Senator Bob Duff.

 "Heading forward, heading into this election, we need to have not only a unite voice, but a united front and a shared voice and vision," said State Rep. Chris Perone.

Rilling is one of four democrats running in Tuesday's primary election.    You can find all the coverage leading up to the primary in Norwalk and Stamford on our website.  

In Stamford, The Loft Artists Association has finally found a new space.  The artists were searching after Building and Land Technology told the group its rent would be raised.  Stamford's zoning board told BLT the Loft Artists needed to stay in the South End for a "cultural space" requirement.  Meeting that rule, the Loft Artists will now move to Pacific St.  

 “This place came to us when we really thought we were never going to be a part of the South End anymore,” says former LAA President Lisa Cuscuna. “The real estate values have skyrocketed down here and the average going rate is twenty dollars a square foot and we’re not paying anywhere near that. The owners of this property are being very generous to us.”

In Greenwich, plans are being made to build a September eleventh memorial at Cos Cob Park.  It will honor 29 people from Greenwich who lost their lives from the September eleventh 2001 attacks.  Each name will be engraved in two glass towers, built on a 12-acre plot.  The nonprofit Greenwich Community Projects Fund is behind the plan.  

"Family members have said to me, most of them don't have real graves, so to them this is almost like a grave site," said GCPF President James Ritman. 

"You can't have that with people throwing frisbee around or playing volleyball or with highway noise or boaters going in and out, so it had to be a really serene setting."
