Another economic development strategy presentation by the experts. Data, conclusions and strategies for a better economic future for Rhode Island are outlined.
In July 2018, I met with South County Hospital’s Nadine McCauley, patient experience manager, and Carrie Brown, special events coordinator, to discuss the possibility of writing a series of stories about the hospital’s history for its upcoming centennial.
The people have decided to spend only $5 million on refurbishing the town hall. Although the idea of having town hall-style forum to decide what to do with the building sounds nice, I would urge the town council to move quickly toward making the town hall usable as soon as possible, using the plans provided by our excellent and surely well-paid architects.
The idea of our children getting addicted to any substance is a nightmare to most adults and parents. And unfortunately, nicotine has been hooking our children since tobacco products have been in use.

My wife and I are proud to call North Kingstown our home, it is a wonderful place to live for many reasons. We have a first-class education system, enviable coastline, rural character, a rich history, a good local economy, and a great quality of life.
Elected officials have become too comfortable with minimizing the impact of costly proposed projects by presenting the “it’s no more than the price of a cup of coffee” analogy.
At the Nov. 5 special election, North Kingstown voters will be asked to approve a bond for additions and other improvements to Town Hall at 80 Boston Neck Road. As we approach that election, it’s important to look back at how we got to this point.
Please vote NO on Question 2 on Nov. 5. The property in question was acquired by the town as a beautiful historic farm under the Green Acres program in the 1960s.
This bond issue is asking the voters to give the Town Council a total of $12.5 million dollars to remodel and renovate a building that when finished, will not be worth the investment.
