SOUTH KINGSTOWN â When Marie Eich of Saunderstown started her nursing career 23 years ago she had no idea she would love working in childrenâs neurodevelopment nor did she expect to become Rhode Island Hospitalâs Nurse of the Year.
Yet, at Rhode Island Hospitalâs 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 âof the yearâ winners, Eich, who works in the Childrenâs 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 Tuesdayâs town meeting with the CRMC was another meeting where the town and CRMC talked in circles, leaving property owners frustrated again.
NORTH KINGSTOWN âAccountability.
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.
