Assessing water quality in Rhode Island

July 18, 2013

NARRAGANSETT—Although Rhode Island is aptly named ‘The Ocean State’ in regards to being home to the largest deep water bay on the East Coast, as well as its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, the state’s water system is much more complex than we often think. Numerous streams, reservoirs, lakes and rivers cut through the landscape, and underground wells provide drinking water for much of the western and southern parts of the state.

SK’s McKinley Slade shines at RI Amateur

July 18, 2013

NORTH KINGSTOWN— Recent South Kingstown High School graduate McKinley Slade is playing the kind of golf he always knew he was capable of.
Slade – who finished tied for third at the RIIL State Golf Championships this spring – made it all the way to the quarterfinals of the 108th Rhode Island Amateur Golf Tournament held at Quidnessett Country Club last week before finally falling to Ledgemont County Club’s Bobby Leopold.
After upsetting Ryan Pelletier 4 and 3 in the first round Thursday Slade – who entered the 32-golfer bracket as the No. 27 seed – knew he was in store for a good day.

They would start slow, allow their opponent to build up a big cushion and then surge back for the win.
This time around it was Narragansett jumping out to the early lead before South Kingstown fought back from a six-run deficit.
Ultimately, however, Narragansett managed to hold on for an 11-10 win.

“I told them forget about that,” Post 39 coach Gary Lessard said of the losing streak. “We had a couple days off and now we’re on a roll.”

July 18, 2013

WARWICK—Most coaches will tell you getting off to a good start goes hand in hand with success.
