Chamber votes to oppose Chafee’s budget

April 20, 2011

SOUTH KINGSTOWN – The Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors voted Wednesday to oppose Governor Chafee’s proposed budget and tax plan.
“Our chamber’s position is to say no to the sales tax expansion proposal,” Joe Iacoi, Executive Director of the South Kingstown Chamber of Commerce said. “Frankly, the more I learn of it I’m surprised of the sweeping nature of what's being debated.”
The Board stated that it opposes the tax plan for many reasons, including that it believes the estimated millions of dollars paid to the Rhode Island by the tax increase will be taken out of an already weak economy.

Special Report: Homelessness in North Kingstown (Quidnessett at the forefront of battle to bridge gap)

April 20, 2011

NORTH KINGSTOWN—When Allison Chatowsky talks about homelessness and the effect it has on the children not only in her kindergarten classroom at Quidnessett Elementary School but throughout North Kingstown, there’s one thing she feels passionate about above all.
“What more would I like to see done?,” she asks on a recent Friday afternoon. “I would definitely like to see our children not be labeled. All children should be identified and treated equally.”
Chatowsky is not alone in her view. In fact, her school goes above and beyond its duties to try to put every child on equal footing.

Avengers hold on, beat Rebels

April 19, 2011

SOUTH KINGSTOWN - The South Kingstown girls had no problem finding goals Tuesday against East Greenwich.
The Avengers weren't exactly struggling either.
With two of the top offenses in the state going at one another with impressive scoring attack after impressive scoring attack, East Greenwich went on a 6-1 spurt midway through the second half to break a tied game and held on at the end to beat SK 17-15.
Kiley Powers led the Avs with seven goals and Meg Greineder had four with Marielle Kraft chipping in with three. Anna Basile, Betsy Thompson and Julia Waicberg added one apiece.

WARWICK — Tuesday morning’s contest with rebuilding Warwick Vets was the perfect preparation for a Coventry softball team heading into its biggest contest of the young season.
With undefeated Chariho awaiting them Saturday morning, the Oakers produced their finest hitting and fielding display of the season. Senior first baseman Charlotte Bracken had three hits, drove in two runs and scored two runs, while sophomore Tatiana Webb hit an inside-the-park home run to lead the Oakers to a 10-2 victory.

South nine tops Chariho

April 19, 2011

SOUTH KINGSTOWN - Connor Morse threw six innings of four-hit, shutout baseball and his offense manufactured enough runs behind him as the South Kingstown baseball team beat Chariho 6-0 Tuesday afternoon.
While the score got a little lopsided late, it was a pitchers dual most of the afternoon as Morse and Chariho's John DeCataldo went through the order.
But while Morse did a good job of pitching to contact and keeping the pesky Chargers off the basepaths, DeCataldo struggled to find the strike zone late and gave up four runs before tiring in the sixth, where South tacked on two more.
