I can’t even guess what the Greenwich Time was trying for here

Criminal “reprimanded” – chastised, perhaps? 

Rolf Eykind Klaeboe, 22, of Forest Ave in Cos Cob [sic -no such street in Cos Cob - there is one in Old Greenwich]  was reprimanded [sic] yesterday morning on Tomac Lane in Stamford after he jumped a stone wall into the Long Island Sound tidal marsh at low tide, reported the [sic] Patrol Officer Carl Johnson of the Greenwich Police Dept., who took him into custody.

The Police had been alerted by various car owners of cars parked on nearby Shore Road, that items had been taken from their cars. The investigation led police to the suspect. From the stolen items recovered from Klaeboe, he was then arrested on two counts of Burglary in the third degree, two counts of Larceny in the the [sic] sixth degree, one count of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and one count of Interfering with an Officer.

Blaeboe * was unable to post a $10,000 bond and was held in Police custody pending arraignment in the Stamford Court on Nov. 3.

As a swamp native, I could have cautioned Mr. Klaeboe against jumping into the muck in our tidal creeks – you aren’t coming out quickly, although I’m sure our police lent a helping hand.

*name changed to protect the guilty?

But they don’t say which 21

Scientists: sex with 21 women lowers risk of prostate cancer. Better do a couple of hundred, just to be sure.

Another foreclosure drags on

6 Dunwoodie

6 Dunwoodie

6 Dunwoodie Place, which reported a contingent contract back in March, has reappeared on the market, presumably  because the deal fell through. Still priced at $2.225 million, but at this point, having sat empty and deteriorating for so long, it’s worth the land it sits on, period. Which was probably always the case, but when clients and I were looking at it two years ago, when it was still occupied, it at least looked inviting.

Foreclosure here started in 2009 and here we are still, almost five years later, even though liability on the debt was admitted. This is a lousy way to run a legal system.

At this rate, we’ll need millions of soldiers

Commanding general and his troops quarantined for three weeks after returning from Ebolaland. So anyone we sender there to help will be out of action for 21 days when they come back to report? Heck of a job, Brownie.

[General] Williams and his team have been in West Africa for 30 days, to set up the initial U.S. military assistance there and have traveled extensively around Liberia. The team was in treatment and testing areas during their travels.

Speaking to reporters two weeks ago while he was still overseas in Liberia, Williams spoke of the extensive monitoring that he was given.

“We measure, while we’re here — twice a day, are monitoring as required by the recent guidance that was put out while we’re here in Liberia. I — yesterday, I had my temperature taken, I think, eight times, before I got on and off aircraft, before I went in and out of the embassy, before I went out of my place where I’m staying,” William said during the October 16 press conference.

Back on the Market

3 Hekma

3 Hekma

3 Hekma Road, $13.8 million. This was, I think, a spec house, built by a Russian and listed while still under construction for $14 million back in 2007. It didn’t sell so it sat, unfinished, for quite a while. I had a client interested in it but the owner told us he was selling it to another Russian friend who would finish it and, in January, 2011, he did sell it, for $5.9 million. Zillow says it was back on the market this year from April to August, at $13.8, but that doesn’t show up on the MLS records. Either way, it’s back now. Lovely house, as I recall, even in its unfinished state back in 2010.
