NORTH KINGSTOWN – The Rev. Virginia Heistand, a single mom of three, sits in her sun-drenched, book-filled study in St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.
Beaming, she declares, “Everything in my world has changed in the last three months and it’s wonderful.”
In that timeframe, she has become the venerable Wickford church’s first female full-time minister – although other women have served in interim roles – and, after a career in clergy housing, she has purchased her first home, in rural Hope Valley.

May 12, 2012

NORTH KINGSTOWN – If you entered a crowded room – Starbuck’s on Ted Rod Road, say – and were looking for a rugby player whose day job involves setting up massive stage equipment for rock concerts, your eye would immediately fall on Mike Martin.
He is, well, burly and looks as though he could hold his own in a scrum.

These memories of MOM make us LOL

May 11, 2012

By MARTHA SMITH
Special to the Standard

Typically, Mother’s Day is a time to wax sentimental about all the sacrifices our moms made for us and how they established family rituals we recall warmly.
But we all know it’s not so simple. Most moms – no matter how distinguished their public lives or how glowing their history as maternal role models – also have funny little quirks. They do or say things in unforgettable ways that, years later, pop into our minds provoking uncontrollable laughter.
