NARRAGANSETTâ€”For those citizens who hope to take a more active part in the workings of local government, the Town Council has recently updated and redesigned its website. The site address has remained the same (www.narragansettri.gov) but its appearance has changed and the navigation tools are more user-friendly.
CHARLESTOWN -- A proposal for two wind turbines on a property north of Route 1 is indefinitely tabled as of a public hearing held by the Town Council last Monday.
In a battle of undefeateds, someone was leaving with a loss and without a state title and Saturday at Slater Park, that was the East Greenwich girls tennis team.
Smithfield won at Nos. 1, 2 and 4 singles and the Avengers won at No. 1 doubles, then had great comebacks at Nos. 2 and 3 doubles as well as No. 3 singles to force third sets.
But as the EG No. 3 doubles team won their match to make it 4-2 - and No. 3 Stephanie Huang was up 4-0 in the third - the No. 2 doubles team fell in a third set tiebreaker, giving Smithfield the title.
RICHMOND â€“ The Town Council's decision during this year's budget cycle to turn off certain street lights to cut costs remains a work in progress.
SMITHFIELDâ€”Wednesdayâ€™s governorâ€™s forum, cosponsored by the League of Womenâ€™s Voters, ABC-TV, WRNI public radio, and Bryant University lacked the energy and ideas of Tuesdayâ€™s Channel 12 debate. In the usual League format (as seen in the Meet the Candidates forums in Narragansett earlier this month) candidates were slotted 45 seconds to answer a question and issued wild cards to extend or inject remarks.
RICHMOND -- On Oct. 24 at 5:30 p.m., police arrested Paul Massey, 21, of East Providence, for second-degree child molestation/sexual assault of a 12-year-old Richmond girl.
The Division II girls tennis final is set.
East Greenwich had no trouble mov
Aleksandra Drljaca won at No. 1 singles as did Stephanie Huang at No. 3 and Edie Golden at No. 4 singles. East Greenwich closed out the match with a win at No. 1 doubles.
The Avengers will meet Smithfield, which beat South Kingstown 4-0. The Rebels lost at No. 1 and 3 singles and Nos. 1 and 2 doubles, but had the match played out, it looked like it was heading to 4-3 because No. 2 Chloe Cullen and No. 4 Cassie Collinson had both picked up momentum with strong second sets.
SOUTH KINGSTOWN - We were sitting in a police car speeding down Route 138 along Kingstown Road with no one to stop us. We drove 80 miles per hour, trying to catch up to those who thought they could be faster. It was the first time I sat in a cop car. However, I didn't break the law and wasn't guilty. I was doing my first cop ride-along with Officer Michael Bronson of the South Kingstown Police last Friday night.
