Several of my Democratic friends (yes, I do have some) have reacted to Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s childish action of ripping her signed copy of the president’s state of the union address ranging from disappointment to disgust.
We talk about the South Kingstown school facility plan and what’s best for the kids. But let’s take a broader look and include all of our facilities. We shouldn’t just be talking about the schools. We also need to talk about all of the town’s facilities.
My name is Fran O’Brien and I am a South Kingstown resident and taxpayer. Other than my time in military service, I have lived in South County my entire life. I am writing with regard to your recently passed ordinance on “noise and unruly behavior.”
Richard August’s letter in the Independent’s January 30 edition both outraged and appalled me. Outrage that he would attack 14-year old Greta Thunberg for “scolding” the world’s political leaders for inaction on climate change.
One hundred years ago Carrie Chapman Catt speaking at the 50th anniversary celebration for the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA) proposed the formation of a league of women voters to finish the fight for women’s equality.
In South Kingstown we are currently faced with five often conflicting realities/dilemmas that are driving our economic and educational policy debates.
Is anyone else incredulous that a 17-year-old school dropout from Sweden, apparently diagnosed with Asperger’s, is allowed to scold world and business leaders at the United Nations in New York and the G8 Summit in Switzerland about “climate change?”
I just heard AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell” and that song definitely fits for the current and future Town of Narragansett’s debt structure. I read Mr. Stanley W’s recent letter to the editor regarding Narragansett’s current debt and I agree with him. Higher property taxes are inevitable!
On Friday in Kent County Superior Court, Judge Jeffrey A. Lanphear denied the Town of Narragansett’s motion to dismiss a complaint brought forward by library project advocates that seeks to stop the town’s sale of the former Belmont Marketplace building — the property originally envisioned to house the Town’s new library.
I find it extremely frustrating to read some posts and comments on Facebook. There are posts trying to explain what the financial impact to South Kingstown residents will be if we build a new school.
Last Wednesday night I attended an event that filled me with hope and enthusiasm. I attended the North Kingstown High School’s Dialogues in Democracy Night. I attended upon the recommendation of state Rep. Bob Craven who told me that it was an annual event that he always loved to attend.
Scott Keeley objects to characterization of his dispute over ownership of beach rights as a provocation (Westerly Sun, Jan 18). How else might we interpret the photo of Keeley casually ignoring “No Trespassing” and “Private Property” signs while strolling along beach-front properties?
