Admit it, you’ve skipped a day (or maybe five) without giving your reusable water bottle a proper scrubbing. Which is your favorite rationalization? “It’s just water in there,” “I washed it yesterday,” or maybe “It’s BPA-free, so I’m good?” Staying hydrated and doing you part for the environment by opting for a reusable bottle are commendable, but don’t sabotage those healthy habits by exposing yourself to potentially unhealthy and harmful bacteria. Find out how germy those bottles get if you skip daily washings from nutritionist, Dana White!read more

If you often see a dad around Westport who looks very familiar but you cannot figure out how you know him, chances are it’s because you usually see him when you are drinking coffee while watching NBC News or as the co-anchor of The Today show Saturday edition (and many weekdays now too). Craig Melvin is a Westport dad of two, who balances reporting on topical issues that matter most while also making his family feel like his number one priority. When Craig is not working he loves to spend time with his family at Compo Beach, Saugatuck Sweets, or grab dinner at Dunville’s. He loves Bourbon, the Carolina Panthers, and is grateful for Twitter for keeping him in the know. Though reporting runs crazy hours, he loves what he does, and even met his wife – Westport Mom, Lindsay Czarniak, and rockstar reporter and sports anchor – doing it! Together, Lindsay & Craig are a force to be reckoned with on and off the TV, and we are so lucky that they chose Westport to call home.read more
