Chariho taking sports schedule day by day

October 31, 2012

The games will go on at Chariho.
When is still the looming question,
Monday’s storm couldn’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.

CURMUDGEON'S CORNER: Questions remain surrounding Campo’s residency (OPINION)

October 31, 2012

Questions have persisted over the years about whether or not Steven Campo, the Democratic candidate for House District 31, is a resident of North Kingstown. Campo’s campaign literature states that he is and that he owns a small business here. His campaign website claims “Steve has lived in and built his business in North Kingstown for over 25 years. He is a local resident…” (Full disclosure: I have financially supported Campo’s previous campaigns.)
