WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) - Republican Tom Foley said he is making another run for Connecticut governor. The Greenwich man who narrowly lost to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy in 2010 announced his decision Wednesday at a VFW post in Waterbury.

Foley, a former U.S. ambassador to Ireland, spent more than $10 million of his own money on his losing bid in 2010.

His running mate from the last race, Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, has already joined the field of Republican candidates that also includes Senate Minority Leader John McKinney.

Malloy has yet to announce whether he will seek a second term.

    It's a running joke that if you mention the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center to nearly anyone in Hollywood they're going to know exactly what you're talking about because odds are they might have gotten their first big break there. Would you believe some Hollywood's biggest stars -- Meryl Streep, Michael Douglas, Angela Bassett -- got their start in a big red barn in the middle of nowhere.

    The Metro-North Railroad has sacrificed safety for on-time performance, according to a report released Wednesday by a Metropolitan Transportation Authority panel. The report echoes an assessment conducted this year by the Federal Railroad Administration, which investigated after a string of Metro-North accidents including a December 2013 derailment that killed four riders in the Bronx.
