It's a sad week in North Kingstown.
Late this weekend, word passed that the town's longtime Santa, Ted Whittaker, passed away at the age of 66. While he will be best remembered for more than his holiday role, friends and family paid tribute to him as a genuine nice guy who will be missed forever.
In this week's Standard-Times, we let those who knew Wittaker best pay their respects. In addition, we have you covered with all the latest news on the Exeter Grange, which celebrates its 125th anniversary this weekend, and update you on all the latest happenings of the EWG and NK School Committees/Town Councils.
All that and much, much more in this week's Standard-Times.
