In today's paper, we have a story on how one Chariho native has become a best-selling novelist.

With the town's applications to erect a wall in Matunuck and to reclassify the waters coming up at the CRMC, Carpenters Beach Meadows will hold a meeting Jan. 7 to discuss erosion.

We also have one story where URI professors are working with the GAIA Foundation to rid the world of AIDS.

All and more inside, today's Narragansett Times.

Curmudgeon's Corner: The war in Iraq is over but was it really worth it? (OPINION)

December 28, 2011

On December 15th Defense Secretary Leon Panetta presided over a ceremony in which the colors (flag) of the American forces in Iraq were “cased”. The following day the state’s daily newspaper proclaimed “WAR OVER” in huge type on page one.
I wonder how the parents of Army Spc. David E. Hickman, 23, of Greensboro, NC feel. Specialist Hickman died in Baghdad on November 14th of injuries caused by an “IED” -an improvised explosive device. He is the last American to die in the official war in Iraq.
