NARRAGANSETT â In an effort to allow members of Rhode Islandâs fishing community to share their basic views on a number of marine issues, a roundtable discussion was held at the University of Rhode Islandâs Coastal Institute on the Bay Campus Monday, February 7.
The ice and bitter cold temperatures didnât stop a slew of students and parents from attending the âRachelâs Challengeâ presentation at Exeter-West Greenwich Senior High School last Thursday night. The third presentation of the day featured speaker Dave Gamache, who has traveled from school to school spreading the message of âRachelâs Challengeâ for the past four years.The presentation was made possible through the efforts of the Domestic Violence Research Center and the Friendship Fund.

KINGSTON â Whether or not the University of Rhode Island menâs basketball team deserved to beat Charlotte Saturday afternoon is irrelevant.
It didnât matter how it looked, because when the Rams left the Ryan Center, the scoreboard read Rams 71, Guest 70.
Akeem Richmond missed a jumper from the right corner with three seconds left in overtime, but Jamal Wilson was in the right place at the right time â and got away with the right move â for a putback just before the buzzer in overtime, giving the Rams the dramatic one-point win to finish off an incredible second half for URI.
Amongst a slew of other issues, one of the biggest problems facing Rhode Island is its inability to entice its young people to remain in the state.
SOUTH KINGSTOWN â To close the $1.6 million deficit in the school budget, the School Committee approved a budget that would ask for two percent in town property taxes, $950,000 from collective bargaining agreements and a reduction of $640,184 in school programs and structures with 33 percent of the un-designated fund balance dedicated to the budget.
KINGSTON--When South African writer Nadine Gordimer was asked what was the best compliment she had ever been paid she said, "Years and years ago, when I was on a camping trip on a farm, I was bitten by ticks that had brushed off the long grass I'd been walking through. When I complained of this, the old and very unattractive farmer said, 'If I was a tick, I'd also like to bite you.'"
