Pier Middle School roof repairs underway

March 29, 2013

Recent spat of heavy weather responsible for damage to school

NARRAGANSETT - High winds and heavy rains created more grief for the town’s facilities team earlier this month, as the most recent ration of foul weather delivered another costly blow, tearing a large portion of the Narragansett Pier Middle School roof away from its bearings.
“When it started, we don’t know,” Gary F. Minett, facilities director, said at last week’s school committee meeting. “The last big wind storm we had caused the roof to come apart. It is a rubber roof that is glued to the insulation underneath. The glue held and the storm tore the insulation out.”

Justin ‘Judd’ McGill benefit takes place Saturday, April 6 at Mettatuxet Yacht Club

NARRAGANSETT - Justin McGill woke up on a Friday morning in February and headed for the YMCA for an early morning swim - a routine he had become accustomed to as part of his weekly workouts that included swimming, biking, running and yoga. The 41-year-old Narragansett resident, husband, and father of three, didn’t have any inclination as to what was to come.
“I felt fine,” said McGill. “I got to the Y and swam early. Sometimes I go at 5 a.m. I had just finished 10 100-meter sets and was doing some fin work under water. I felt a strange sensation in my chest.”
