Granite Theatre presents British Comedy ‘Run For Your Wife’

July 28, 2014

WESTERLY-Renaissance City Theatre Inc. will put on a production of the British comedy “Run For Your Wife” this summer at the Granite Theatre of Westerly.
The fun loving summer show features the life of John Smith, a man with two wives who finds himself in an unfavorable situation after an accident, and the plot unravels from there.  What happens next as he scrambles to keep his two wives from meeting and his two lives separate, is described as the makings of “a quintessential feel-good farce” by show Director Lee Rush Schwartz.

Pay no attention to that cold snap summer is still with us

July 28, 2014

For all of this journal’s long history—a stretch that, amazing to me, now spans five decades in publication (thanks for putting up with me)—I’ve tried, whenever possible, to focus on looking ahead. But, as both the venerable Weather Oracle and more than a few readers have pointed out, my record as a seer is not that good. So, more often than not, I’ve used my words as a way to review the natural history events of the past week. I’m a decent historian, and the approach, coupled with a nod to what might be in the offing, seems to work.

Block Island, the place to fish

July 28, 2014

It’s good to be in a good groove and it’s good to know there are lots of fish around, even if they are not really around you. The big bass we pined for all spring and early summer apparently passed on hanging around our beaches and for the most part, went directly to Block Island. Did you know it’s free to park at all the beaches on the island and that there are no gates to keep you out or to lock you in if you want to surf cast past midnight? And there are no parking companies checking your license plate before taking your money back to their state.

Question your beliefs with ‘What do I know of Calvary Love?’

July 28, 2014

I recently witnessed a very interesting conversation between two people that had nearly polar opposite views on a subject that is generally considered off limits at the dinner table, and is avoided more often than not in general conversation. The conversation was about whether or not there is a God, a Universal Spirit of some sort or not. The conversation was not heated, but it was clear that both parties had their own personal point of view based on their own life experiences.

Newport Folk Festival offers an impressive lineup this year

July 28, 2014

The hottest music ticket once again this summer in Rhode Island? The fact that the entire event was sold out by April before the lineup was even completely announced is once again a litmus test to the hotness of the Newport Folk Festival. By popular demand, gone are the days when the festival would begin with a small Friday night show at the Newport Casino. Last year, the promoters bumped it way up with a full day of Friday music at Fort Adams State Park, also home to the Saturday and Sunday festivities.

Discover the history of fireworks

July 21, 2014

If you are like me, and according to the multitudes of people I saw all around South County over July Fourth weekend, a lot of you are, you love fireworks! I witnessed many an oooh and an ahhh as the skies lit up with a multitude of vibrant colors and sounds over the holiday weekend. The displays were most impressive, and a really great time was had by many as they sat in lawn chairs and blankets, on the grass or in the sand to see what would happen next.
