NARRAGANSETT â€“ In an effort to allow members of Rhode Islandâ€™s fishing community to share their basic views on a number of marine issues, a roundtable discussion was held at the University of Rhode Islandâ€™s Coastal Institute on the Bay Campus Monday, February 7.
The ice and bitter cold temperatures didnâ€™t stop a slew of students and parents from attending the â€śRachelâ€™s Challengeâ€ť presentation at Exeter-West Greenwich Senior High School last Thursday night. The third presentation of the day featured speaker Dave Gamache, who has traveled from school to school spreading the message of â€śRachelâ€™s Challengeâ€ť for the past four years.The presentation was made possible through the efforts of the Domestic Violence Research Center and the Friendship Fund.

KINGSTON â€“ Whether or not the University of Rhode Island menâ€™s basketball team deserved to beat Charlotte Saturday afternoon is irrelevant.
It didnâ€™t matter how it looked, because when the Rams left the Ryan Center, the scoreboard read Rams 71, Guest 70.
Akeem Richmond missed a jumper from the right corner with three seconds left in overtime, but Jamal Wilson was in the right place at the right time â€“ and got away with the right move â€“ for a putback just before the buzzer in overtime, giving the Rams the dramatic one-point win to finish off an incredible second half for URI.
Amongst a slew of other issues, one of the biggest problems facing Rhode Island is its inability to entice its young people to remain in the state.
SOUTH KINGSTOWN â€“ To close the $1.6 million deficit in the school budget, the School Committee approved a budget that would ask for two percent in town property taxes, $950,000 from collective bargaining agreements and a reduction of $640,184 in school programs and structures with 33 percent of the un-designated fund balance dedicated to the budget.
