It's Thanksgiving Day in Rhode Island and what better way to celebrate than with turkey, ham and a copy of this week's Standard Times newspaper?
This week's Standard Times features a story on a local man from North Kingstown's whose short story, entitled November Christmas, was recently turned into a movie for Hallmark and will air this weekend on CBS.
In addition, get the latest updates from Monday's NK Town Council meeting, when in a surprise move business man Stanley Weiss dropped his proposal for Beechwood House, not to mention an update on a co-op hockey team coming to Exeter-West Greenwich just in time for the start of winter season.
If that wasn't enough, we profile a local diner that, for many around Exeter, is a home away from home. catch up with NK native Roberta Humble and her Rhode Island-based books and games, plus give you Standard Times exclusive stories on a local Peace Corp volunteer who remains in Africa despite being robbed at gunpoint his first day there and a story on Exeter Town Councilman Dan Patterson's quest to defuse allegations he's bilking the town out of property tax money.
So what are you waiting for? Pick up a copy of this week's Standard Times before the turkey gets cold.
