Town honoring, not trashing Art Carney

WESTBROOK, Conn. (AP) — Jackie Gleason got a bus depot when he died, so why shouldn't Art Carney get a sanitation facility?

Carney, a Westbrook resident who played Gleason's sewer-working sidekick Ed Norton on The Honeymooners, died last month. Since then, one local resident has been lobbying to name the nearby waste and recycling center after the Emmy-winning actor.

Richard Fleming said the Ed Norton Sanitation Facility would be a fitting memorial to the television star. He has begun a letter and e-mail campaign to persuade people to support the name change.
