Warren battens down, but the show must go on


Warren Town Hall is closed Monday, and police are bringing in extra officers to help deal with what looks to be a wild 24 hours once Sandy approaches. Many boat owners tied up at the Warren Town Wharf have moved their boats to safer areas, including the upper Kickemuit River.

Meanwhile, the show must go on, Frankenstorm or not. On-and-off Warren resident Brady Bradshaw and his partner Irmi Spiegel gave a performance of their Big Underwear Social Tour traveling show Sunday afternoon. The show behind Cutler Mills drew close to 100 despite the approaching storm, and finished at about 6 p.m., just as darkness and heavier drizzle began to fall.

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
