EXETER – The long-dormant property owned by Kevin Casey, of Connecticut, operating as Exeter Real Estate – once envisioned as a 99-unit development of senior housing called Cobblestone – is being reimagined.
At a recent planning board work session, Casey announced he's “reassessing his plans,” says Town Planner David W. Schweid. “The master plan [for the original Cobblestone] was approved in April 2008” but has never gone forward, leaving the property to become overgrown and weed-choked.
The economy has forced Casey's hand.

Tell Me Your Story: Tom Geismar's career has balanced black and white

February 12, 2012

WEST GREENWICH – When Dr. Thomas Geismar arrived in 2007 to take over as superintendent of the Exeter-West Greenwich district, he was immersed in an entirely different world from the one he’d left.
As a school official in Broward County, Florida – then the fifth largest district in the country – he was the minority; a white face in a system of African-Americans, Jamaican-Americans, Haitians and Cuban-Americans.
“It couldn’t be more diverse,” says Geismar, 62, “and that includes race, gender, lifestyle. We actually had a diversity committee.”
