‘Golden Boy’ Cast Ready for Tonight’s Performance

WestportNow.com Image
Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei (c) headlines a cast that will perform a reading of Clifford Odets’ 1937 play “Golden Boy” tonight at the Westport Country Playhouse. Joanne Woodward directs. The reading is part of “The Classical Series,” which brings together professional actors to read works by master playwrights. The story focuses on the character Joe Bonaparte, whose part is read by Kiernan Camion, pictured on the far right in the front row. Bonaparte is a young man who finds himself at the crossroads of his life when his drive to become a great violinist is sidetracked by the lure of big money as a prizefighter.

Oops

WestportNow.com Image
When you try to drive a 13-foot-3 truck through a railroad underpass with a height restriction of 11-feet-4, something has to give. And it did on Westport’s Compo Road South this morning, shearing off the truck’s top but causing no injuries. The truck was making a delivery to Narrow Rocks Road. Traffic had to detour for more than five hours after the accident about 10:30 a.m. The accident ripped out telephone and cable wires as well as the town’s new fiber optic circuit to Longshore Club Park.

No one was injured in the mishap at about 10:15 a.m. and there was no structural damage to the Metro-North rail line, but the truck was heavily damaged and possibly some of its contents, fire officials said. The roadway was reopened at 3:42 p.m.

The truck took out some cable and telephone wires as well as a Town of Westport fiber optic circuit that go under the underpass in the southbound lane but did not touch a high voltage line on the opposite side of the roadway.

Police called a heavy duty wrecker to remove the truck, which was registered in New York. The underpass has large signs showing clearance of just over 11 feet. The truck was more than 13 feet in height.

Teen Mother Pleads Guilty, Gives Up Baby

A teenage mother arrested by Westport police last month in a baby-shaking case has taken a plea bargain and agreed to give up parental rights to her 13-week-old daughter, who was severely injured in the incident.

Samantha Carr, 17, of Lyndonville, Vt., pleaded guilty Thursday in Stamford Superior Court to risk of injury to a minor. A judge is expected to sentence her to five years of probation in October.

Westport police arrested Carr on July 2. They say she watched as her boyfriend, James Lane, 19, shook the girl when she wouldn’t stop crying during a visit to Lane’s great-grandmother’s home. (See WestportNow July 3, 2008)

Charges remain pending against Lane, also of Lyndonville, who is the baby’s father. Officials say the baby suffered four fractured ribs and bleeding in her brain, and may have brain damage.
