Youths thrive at conference

July 28, 2012

SMITHFIELD — Almost a quarter century ago, the first premise of the Youth-to-Youth Conference was to deter high-school kids from getting involved with drugs and alcohol and running into problems in conjunction with the two.

Now, even with some former participants coming back to help volunteer and guide the current youth, they are even amazed as to how much the event has expanded and shines more light on other issues.

July 15, 2012

EAST GREENWICH — Every time he plans out his annual budget, East Greenwich Public Works director Joseph Duarte has to pretty much prepare for the worst when it comes to his sewage treatment facility.

July 15, 2012

EAST GREENWICH — Congressman Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) has always believed in the “American Dream” throughout his college years and well into his time in the U.S. House of Representatives, where hard work and innovation can create a thriving economy for all within the country.

It’s a philosophy that the No. 2 Democrat in the House still firmly believes in despite the dire economic downturn the United States has suffered – Rhode Island in particular – and has the confidence that, with a solid workforce in place, the country will once again rise from the depths of disparity.
