A Providence chef was killed in a car accident Sunday morning. David Clinton, who was supposed to become the executive director of a new restaurant in East Providence, was a passenger in a car driven by Kevin Killoran, the owner of Z Bar & Grille on Wickenden and a collaborator of Clinton’s in the new restaurant plan. Killoran has been arrested on charges of driving to endanger, leaving the scene of an accident, and operating with a suspended license.
The Rhode Island Supreme Court voted Tuesday to allow a lawsuit against the City of Newport to proceed. The lawsuit alleges that the city fails to maintain any sort of safety structure around Cliff Walk, a popular tourist attraction. The lawsuit, filed by a Brooklyn native who became a quadriplegic after falling from the cliffs in 2000, also alleges that there are not sufficient warnings issued about Cliff Walk’s possible dangers. The Supreme Court of Rhode Island’s decision to allow the case to proceed reverses a Superior Court decision to throw the case out.
For those of you who missed the epic Battle of Qadesh yesterday on our very own Quiet Green: the Projo is on it! It’s not much, but hopefully it’s still entertaining. (And for those of you who were able to not only watch, but participate: go see if you can spot yourselves in action!)
