NARRAGANSETTâ€”The Blizzard of 2010 has come and gone and while some parts of Southern New England are still struggling to dig their way out of this past weekendâ€™s storm that left anywhere from one to two feet of snow on the ground, the towns of South Kingstown and Narragansett are doing just fine.
Let us lift up our glass, filled with holiday cheer,
To the winners, the losers, the events of the year.
What was hot, what was not; the skinny, the dope, the goods,
From Bieber to GaGa to a lascivious Tiger named Woods.
From Lindsey Lohan to â€˜MadMenâ€™ to â€˜Jersey Shore,â€™
From â€˜Iron Chefâ€™ to Republican Revival to the divorced Al Gore,
From the late Elizabeth Edwards, whose husband still smirks,
To angry Mel Gibson, with his rants, raves, cocktails and quirks,
From â€˜The Viewâ€™ to â€˜No Clueâ€™ to â€˜Who Knew?â€™ and How Are You?
The first fruits of the projected $6.2 million surplus on the 2008 school bond will be directed to a pair of roofs if the School Committee has its way.
The committee voted unanimously last week to request permission from the Town Council to appropriate $1,813,500 for roof replacement work at East Greenwich High School and $225,000 for roof repairs at Frenchtown Elementary School.
