It's the start of the new year. While for some that means new resolutions and new changes, for local towns it means the start of the budget season. This week South Kingstown has two capital improvement program budget work sessions starting tonight. In today's paper, we have a preview story on what that CIP includes.
To break into 2012 and shake off this winter frost, the Narrow River Preservation Association (NRPA) is starting a new Winter Lecture Series, in which local specialists on the history and natural environment will speak to the public.
We also have photos of this weekends many South County polar plunges.
All and more inside today's Narragansett Times.
