May 13, 2012

NORTH KINGSTOWN – If you entered a crowded room – Starbuck’s on Ted Rod Road, say – and were looking for a rugby player whose day job involves setting up massive stage equipment for rock concerts, your eye would immediately fall on Mike Martin.

These memories of MOM make us LOL

May 12, 2012

Special to the Standard

Typically, Mother’s Day is a time to wax sentimental about all the sacrifices our moms made for us and how they established family rituals we recall warmly.
But we all know it’s not so simple. Most moms – no matter how distinguished their public lives or how glowing their history as maternal role models – also have funny little quirks. They do or say things in unforgettable ways that, years later, pop into our minds provoking uncontrollable laughter.

School Committee gets nowhere with sports cuts

May 11, 2012


NORTH KINGSTOWN – When the North Kingstown Town Council approved its fiscal year 2012/2013 budget last week, what got appropriated for the school department wasn’t what the district had hoped for and now begins the arduous task of making millions of dollars of reductions.
The school committee asked the council for a four percent increase and instead only received two percent.
“I do appreciate the increase,” said Superintendent Dr. Philip Auger. “But we now have to reduce much more than if we only received a four percent increase.”
