May 1, 2014

NARRAGANSETT – Iggy’s Doughboys and Chowder House is looking to build a larger restaurant in Narragansett.

Callaghan to make a run at RI Senate

May 1, 2014

NARRAGANSETT – Town Council President James Callaghan has announced he’ll run for a state Senate seat this November.

With current Sen. Dawson Hodgson’s announcement that he won’t run for re-election to represent District 35, which encompasses parts of Narragansett, South Kingstown, North Kingstown and East Greenwich, but will instead run for attorney general, Callaghan decided to seek election.

“I thought it was a good opportunity,” he said Thursday. “It’s not often that a seat like this comes available.”

An ever-changing facade

May 1, 2014

SOUTH KINGSTOWN - A six-year tradition in Peace Dale has brought more than 40 large-scale murals to the side of the Dennis Moffit Painting building across from the Peace Dale Mill Complex.

Most of the murals, painted by local and “guest” artists, have signified the coming or going of important events or seasons in the town.

The most recent depicts a spring scene with the winter being symbolically rolled away in the form of a snowball.

EWG girls sweep, boys struggle at Tuesday’s meet

May 1, 2014

WEST KINGSTON — The Exeter/West Greenwich girls managed to sweep the meet at home on Tuesday afternoon, despite some unpleasant running conditions.

“It was pretty cold, so times were not incredibly fast and a lot of kids were disappointed with that aspect of it,” coach Thomas Mastroianni said during a phone interview on Wednesday morning. “But, we did win over both teams. It was very close, but we came out on top so that was good.”

The Knights beat Chariho, 76-73 and defeated East Greenwich in a 69-66 final.

NK Boys Track gets results despite tough weather conditions

May 1, 2014

WESTERLY — Whether you’re one of the favorites to win the boys outdoor track and field state championship (North Kingstown) or you’re one of many teams just trying to get an athlete on the podium (West Warwick), it wasn’t fun to compete Tuesday afternoon.

The Wizards and Skippers trudged to the southwestern corner of the state to battle Westerly in conditions that were more suited to ice fishing. Battling temperatures in the mid-40’s and a steady head wind down the home stretch, all three teams attempted to earn qualifying teams for Saturday’s Rich Schomp Invitational at Exeter-West Greenwich.
