Boon Street Diner open for business

December 1, 2010

NARRAGANSETT–Courtney Quinlan, 24, and Rebecca Babcock, 25, now help run a restaurant. Six months ago if you had asked them what their futures held, slinging hash and beating together omelets would not have been a prospect.
"This restaurant just fell into place and...well, into our laps," Rebecca said. Her father, Scott Babcock, also was not expecting to be a restaurateur. For 30 years he has been a fisherman at Galilee, 18 of those years as owner and operater of the Rebecca May (whose picture proudly hangs on the back wall.) Since the opening on Nov. 8, all hands have been on deck for The Boon Street Diner.

Happy Chanukkah to all

December 1, 2010

I am personally blessed to be a member of a “multi-cultural family” and we celebrate our differences. The best way for me to describe this special relationship is to educate what I am celebrating.
Chanukkah begins Wednesday, December 1 at sun down and is observed for eight days. It is a Jewish holiday best known as the ‘festival of lights’, referring to the flames on the candles. It is not the Jewish Christmas; in fact it is not a very important religious holiday, but a celebration of a victory. A profound faith and loyalty to God which helped the Jewish people win over the forces of darkness.
