A local Republican lawmaker in Greenwich, Connecticut, has been arrested and has garnered national attention for an alleged sexual assault.

Christopher Von Keyserling was charged with fourth degree assault after police say he pinched a female town worker’s genitals during a political argument.

Von Keyserling and the worker were at a town building in December when Von Keyserling allegedly called the worker a lazy, bloodsucking union employee and said, “I love this new world. I no longer have to be politically correct.”

In Greenwich, A Future For The American Chestnut Tree

A hundred years ago, one in four trees in the eastern United States was an American Chestnut. But, in the early 20th century, the tree was nearly wiped out by one of the first invasive species to hit America. Now, a plot of land in Greenwich, Connecticut is just one of 300 groves from Maine to Georgia where chestnuts are being reintroduced. Dozens of volunteers planted nearly 400 trees here over the weekend.

Scientists have discovered the fossilized remains of what may have been the largest marine bird, dating back 25 million years ago. The Pelagornis Sandersi weighed 180 pounds and had an estimated wingspan of 24 feet.

This finding was announced in an article published in the “The Proceedings of The National Academy of Sciences” earlier this summer. The author is Dr. Daniel Szepka, a paleontologist, who is the curator of science at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich.  Fairfield County Public Radio's Bill Buchner discussed the finding with Dr. Szepka.
