Tell Me Your Story: NK music man honored for half-century of service

February 19, 2012

EAST GREENWICH – When Joseph R. “Joe” Pelosi graduated from the Boston Conservatory of Music in 1959 and returned to Rhode Island, his wife, Angela, saw an ad seeking a music teacher in the North Kingstown school system.
“I didn’t know where North Kingstown was,” Joe laughs.
He quickly learned – in fact, he became a legend on the local music scene – and the display areas in the den of his home near the East Greenwich-North Kingstown line are filled with evidence that North Kingstown certainly knows him.

Zorro dog tired but home

February 18, 2012

Special to the Standard

NORTH KINGSTOWN – A scared little lapdog that escaped into the woods from its backyard and went on the lam for 10 days – an event that caused fliers to appear in every shop window in Wickford and galvanized the community into search parties – has been found.
Zorro, a Lhasa Apso rescued from an out-of-state puppy mill, vanished Feb. 2 and managed to avoid being eaten by coyotes or killed by a car while traveling from one end of town to the other.

Phil’s has community support

February 17, 2012

SOUTH KINGSTOWN – Green signs exclaiming ‘vote yes’ rattled throughout the town council chamber Wednesday night as the downtown Wakefield community poured into the town hall to support Phil’s Restaurant owners Carl and Kenneth Tetzner and the Contemporary Theater Company’s plans to revitalize Main Street. Despite the flood of support for the plans, the zoning board postponed their decision until Tuesday.

“I thought this would be the night we got an answer. We all did,” Carl Tetzner said after the board meeting.

No apologies from SK Councilman

February 17, 2012

SOUTH KINGSTOWN – The town council meeting was caught in a stalemate Monday night as union leaders repeatedly asked for apologies from Councilman Jim O’Neill, who remained steadfast in his silent refusal to give into what they wanted.

“I spoke at the last town council meeting. I expect an apology for the way I was treated and comments I received from a certain town council member,” Deborah Bergner, resident and member of the Democratic Town Committee said. “I was using my right as a citizen and taxpayer and was treated poorly.”
