This following is an announcement that came through at 2:45 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 31 from the Town of South Kingstown Emergency Management Agency:
"Residents are asked to postpone the celebration of Halloween until Saturday because of downed trees and power lines from Hurricane Sandy and the lack of
electricity throughout our community.
The combination makes it unsafe for children to trick or treat at this time.
Thank you for your cooperation and patience."

The games will go on at Chariho.

Mondayâ€™s storm couldnâ€™t have been timed worse as far as the Rhode Island Interscholastic League is concerned. The Division I volleyball regular season was supposed to conclude that night and the boys and girls soccer and field hockey playoffs were scheduled to start Tuesday.
With homes flooded, trees down, power out and schools closed, sports were put on hold with the hope they can return Thursday, especially at Chariho High School.
