SOUTH KINGSTOWN â€“ When Marie Eich of Saunderstown started her nursing career 23 years ago she had no idea she would love working in childrenâ€™s neurodevelopment nor did she expect to become Rhode Island Hospitalâ€™s Nurse of the Year.
Yet, at Rhode Island Hospitalâ€™s annual Employee Service Awards Dinner, which honored nearly 1,100 employees at the hospital to celebrate major career milestones, such as anniversaries, new retirees and employees â€śof the yearâ€ť winners, Eich, who works in the Childrenâ€™s Neurodevelopment Center was recognized as nurse of the year.
SOUTH KINGSTOWN â€“ With four new members on the Coastal Resource Management Council unfamiliar with the continuing erosion along Matunuck Beach Road and its history, last Tuesdayâ€™s town meeting with the CRMC was another meeting where the town and CRMC talked in circles, leaving property owners frustrated again.
NORTH KINGSTOWN â€”Accountability.
That one word is the reason Kay Cutting says she and her family continue to fight the potential parole of Jamie Hughes, a man who murdered her father Zeke Harris on Sept. 15, 1982 and has been denied parole four times since.
Accountability is why Cutting spends months preparing for parole hearings; why she lays awake at night reliving the night she found out her father was killed; why she still seeks justice, three decades after a jury found Jamie Hughes guilty.
