Symposium Follows World Premiere of “Thurgood”

WestportNow.com Image
“Thurgood: The Law and the Man,” a Sunday Symposium, was presented today by the Westport Country Playhouse following the world premiere of James Earl Jones in “Thurgood,” based on the life of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. Symposium guest speaker was Stephen L. Carter, Yale University professor of law, who previously served as a law clerk for Marshall.  He said the quality that impressed him the most about Marshall was his ability to relate to people on a human level no matter what disagreements he might have with their views or politics. Symposium moderator was Hyla Crane, Playhouse education director. “Thurgood” continues through May 21. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo

Sherwood Island State Park Seeks Lifeguards

State officials are seeking to fill lifeguard slots at Sherwood Island State Park in Westport and other beaches in order to avoid last summer’s shortages.

The state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has been contacting high schools and colleges in hopes of reaching potential applicants for the approximately 80 spots around the state, including 12 at Sherwood Island.

The popular beach was left shorthanded just before the busy Fourth of July weekend when three of its lifeguards quit. (See WestportNow July 4, 2005).

Gina McCarthy, DEP commissioner, has told Westport officials that a new manager has been hired for Sherwood Island and that wages have been raised in order to improve lifeguard coverage this year.
