DONATIONS POUR IN TO REBUILD NEWMAN’S CAMP FOR SICK KIDS
UNDATED (AP) – Less than a week after a fire tore through Hole in the Wall Gang camp for seriously ill children in Connecticut, almost $3 million has been raised to help rebuild the facility that was founded by the late actor Paul Newman. That includes pledges of $1 million from the Newman’s Own Foundation and a promise by Travelers to match up to $1 million in other donations, which currently total $900,000. The camp’s chief executive officer, Jimmy Canton, says because of COVID-19, much of the programming housed in the buildings that burned was already scheduled to be moved outside this summer. He hopes new buildings will be ready by the summer of 2022.
LEE MAJORS STARS IN “NARCO SUB”
HOUSTON (AP) – For once, Lee Majors gets to be the bad guy. At the age of 81, Majors plays the head of a cartel in the Amazon Prime film “Narco Sub.” Majors says the main difference between acting now and acting in “The Six Million Dollar Man” in the 1970s is the cameras used to be huge. He says when he had to jump into the frame of vision, he needed a ten-foot ladder because the cameras were so big. Majors jokes because he was supposed to be bionic, he landed stiff-legged, which is why he had to have his knees repaired last year.
