Curmudgeon's Corner: In-state tuition? What was Chafee thinking?

October 12, 2011

I suppose medical records privacy laws prevent us from finding out if Linc Chafee was kicked in the head back when he was shoeing horses for a living. If that were the case, perhaps it would explain his addle-brained response to a reporter’s question on Tuesday of last week.
The question was how “undocumented students” (i.e., the children brought into this country illegally by their parents) were supposed to pay tuition at Rhode Island’s state colleges.

YMCA patrons breaking a sweat on new gear

October 11, 2011

By MARTHA SMITH
Special to the Standard

NORTH KINGSTOWN – The music is pulsating, the sound of iron clangs like an army of bots playing tackle football and, everywhere, men are sweating and flexing.
If it were anywhere else, this would clearly qualify as a man cave.
But it’s the West Bay Family YMCA and this roomful of guys can be forgiven for really, really enjoying themselves: the room was gutted and repainted and all its equipment is new, as are the treadmills and other apparatus in the cardio center.
