JAMESTOWN â€“ Rosemary Enright and Sue Maden sit in the Jamestown Museum, built in 1885-86 and talk about their passions: history. Both active in the Jamestown Historical Society, theyâ€™re showing off the latest example of their mission to tell the story of this special place â€“ a handsome, recently-published book titled JAMESTOWN: A History of Narragansett Bayâ€™s Island Town.

SOUTH KINGSTOWNâ€”Republican Governor Donald Carcieri grinned like an overfed cat as Vice President of Administration Robert Weygand told an audience at a topping out ceremony that URIâ€™s Pharmaceutical Building was â€śon time and on budget.â€ť Rhode Island recently approved (by 62 percent) a ballot measure for $65 million in state bonds on for the new 148,000 square foot building.

WEST GREENWICH â€“ Even as the No. 1 seed in the Division III girls soccer playoffs, Exeter-West Greenwich coach Kevin Fraser was worried.
Thanks to Mondayâ€™s storm that postponed the first round to Tuesday, Knights hadnâ€™t played in 10 days and even in those final two games â€“ a tie with Pilgrim on Oct. 28 and a win over Westerly on Oct. 29 â€“ the team didnâ€™t have its best showing.
After being pushed back a day thanks to rainouts earlier in the week, four local girls soccer teams will play with a berth to the finals on the line today.
In Division I, South Kingstown plays East Greenwich at East Greenwich High School at 6 p.m. EGHS was chosen as the site for the semifinals before the season started.
In Division II, Exeter-West Greenwich plays Ponaganset at Cranston Stadium at 6 p.m.
In Division III, Narragansett plays Burrillville at 4 p.m. at Gaudet Middle School in Middletown.
Four area teams played in playoff games Wednesday, and things didn't go great for three of them.
In boys soccer, South Kingstown did all it could to try and stop undefeated Barrington, but the Rebels fell in a tough game, 2-1. In the nightcap, North Kingstown played No. 2-seed Shea and lost, 3-0.
In girls volleyball, two local teams met in the Division II semifinal.
While neither team played especially well, Exeter-West Greenwich's powerful serving and play at the net allowed the Knights to top West Warwick, 27-25, 23-25, 25-17, 25-14, advancing to their first title game since 1999.
