SOUTH KINGSTOWN â€“ When Charles and Jean Hickox awoke one morning at their Yawgoo Pond Road home, they did not expect to find a black bear rummaging through the birdfeeders in their back yard.
â€śWeâ€™ve seen him quite a few times. One morning we looked out and there he was. He spent the better part of the day hanging out in the backyard,â€ť Jean Hickox said.
RICHMOND -- If being eager could catch fish, the 16 kids who participated in Richmond Rec’s Huck Finn Day on Saturday all should have caught whales.
From the 'junkyard' to nationals, the Wickford Middle School Science Olympiad team has been on quite a ride this spring.
After coming in first at last month's state tournament, the team led by teacher Nancy LaPosta-Frazier earned its first-ever trip to nationals and will compete next week against the best and brightest scientific minds in the country on the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
This week, we introduce you to the members of that team and profile their journey to the top of the state and beyond.
