NORTH KINGSTOWN – Thomas Kutcher stands in the shimmering sunlight of a very warm spring afternoon, inhaling the distinctly fishy aroma of work boats tied up at the Town Dock, at the end of Main Street.
It is like sweet perfume to this man who has found his greatest delights growing up on Narragansett Bay, specifically the Warren River; he became an accomplished surfer – his favorite spots were off Bonnet Shores and Narragansett Pier – swimmer and boater.

April 21, 2012

NORTH KINGSTOWN – Erica Denhoff chose the hottest Boston Marathon in history to make her running debut – and lived to tell the tale.

April 18, 2012

NARRAGANSETT—The stories of how walkers and bikers have come to the MS Society’s 23rd annual Walk MS are varied, but the intent remains steadfast: to raise funds and public awareness for research which will someday lead to a cure for multiple sclerosis.

“This is a great experience, from start to finish,” said Narragansett resident Chuck Carberry. “Last year, we did the walk and I have been training for this year’s 150 mile bike race with my wife. It is a great opportunity.”
