Let us lift up our glass, filled with holiday cheer,
To the winners, the losers, the events of the year.
What was hot, what was not; the skinny, the dope, the goods,
From Bieber to GaGa to a lascivious Tiger named Woods.
From Lindsey Lohan to â€˜MadMenâ€™ to â€˜Jersey Shore,â€™
From â€˜Iron Chefâ€™ to Republican Revival to the divorced Al Gore,
From the late Elizabeth Edwards, whose husband still smirks,
To angry Mel Gibson, with his rants, raves, cocktails and quirks,
From â€˜The Viewâ€™ to â€˜No Clueâ€™ to â€˜Who Knew?â€™ and How Are You?
The first fruits of the projected $6.2 million surplus on the 2008 school bond will be directed to a pair of roofs if the School Committee has its way.
The committee voted unanimously last week to request permission from the Town Council to appropriate $1,813,500 for roof replacement work at East Greenwich High School and $225,000 for roof repairs at Frenchtown Elementary School.
