POLITICS AS USUAL: Gemma's announcement didn't change a thing (OPINION)

September 4, 2012

To borrow an old phrase, the Anthony Gemma campaign last week “labored mightily and brought forth a mouse.”
His press conference last week fell woefully short of what he promised would “have an immediate, stunning, game-changing impact on Rhode Island politics. It will make national headlines. Lives will be changed profoundly – and mostly for the better.”
My life was not “changed profoundly” for the better or the worse and I doubt yours was, either.

Exeter's Planning Committee 'riled up' by NK

September 3, 2012

By MARTHA SMITH
Special to the Standard

EXETER – While most members of the local planning board stop short of calling themselves “stepchildren” when describing North Kingstown’s handling of future land use at the intersection of Rts. 102 and 2, nobody denies there’s rampant unhappiness.
Exeter’s planners feel excluded. North Kingstown, they say, is acting high-handed.
The saga started in 2008 when the State Properties Committee, along with North Kingstown and Exeter, purchased development rights to 112.5 acres at the corner of Rts. 2 and 102, site of the Bald Hill Nursery.

Tell Me Your Story: Eeyore's story inspires creation of donkey rescue group

September 2, 2012

Today is the beginning of a story I’ll be updating for what I hope is a very long time. It’s the story of a little old donkey; blind, horribly malnourished and with a mouth that appears not to have had dental attention in a long time.
Not to mention love. When was that ever part of his life?
He can’t tell us anything about his past but I can talk about his present and his future. He was abandoned on Rt. 165 in western Exeter in early August, left terrified to fend for himself.
