And the beat goes on: Sometimes we all just need to slow down (OPINION)

October 17, 2012

Just when I thought occasionally forgetting a name or word was a sign of getting older, I have learned that younger people also share this unique quality. Honestly, that thought is disconcerting to me.
Maybe it is our electronic world that causes this as most of us have become computer savvy. Some of us even know how to abbreviate words with signs, but why? Texting gives me a headache. My mind goes much too quickly to get any of my thoughts down in print on a cell phone screen before I begin forget them.

Tell Me Your Story: Former NK teacher chooses bilateral mastectomy

October 14, 2012

Special to the Standard

NORTH KINGSTOWN – What most people would regard as tragic is not how Anne Huling views the toll taken on her body through numerous surgeries and progressive deafness that forced her to end the teaching career she loved.
She is a survivor in every sense of the word; her spirit has risen to fight lung cancer which she feels was caused by second-hand smoke in a small, windowless teacher’s lounge.
She has battled back from abdominal surgery after two small growths were found in the colon: she also had her gall bladder removed.

Chariho Furniture: celebrating 25 years in business

October 12, 2012

WYOMING—Ed Smith, owner of Chariho Furniture, opened up his suit jacket and pointed to the red, white and blue American flag stitched inside.
“People say, ‘You can’t buy American-made clothing,’” Smith said. “It’s got to be American-made. I don’t think this country would be in the position it’s in if people felt that way.”
For Ed Smith, “Made in America” is more than an empty slogan. Chariho Furniture prides itself on selling only American-made solid-wood furniture. They carry over 100 different brands, 20 of them Amish, and they specialize in pieces made to the customer’s exacting specifications. Everything can be customized, from the wood to the fabric to the finish to the hardware.
