Itâ€™s mid-February and you know what that means: Love is in the air.
As North Kingstown and Exeter celebrated Valentineâ€™s Day this week, itâ€™s only fitting the day spill over onto the pages of the Standard Times.
This weekâ€™s Standard Times features a fun story by Martha Smith on how love has changed the lives of a handful of senior citizens from North Kingstown. In addition, weâ€™ve got photos from the big day in NK as local children put together hand-made Valentineâ€™s Day cards for their loved ones.
As always, though, itâ€™s the hard news that you care the most about that dominates this weekâ€™s pages.
Last week, the Rhode Island Department of Education released the results of this yearâ€™s New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) and weâ€™ve got all the information on how your schools are doing.
