With a heavy heart, I am announcing the cancellation of the GFWC Women’s Club of South County’s annual signature fundraising event, our Book & Author Luncheon scheduled for July 8.
Why are we all hoarding toilet paper?
One of the tips given to the public for dealing with coronavirus, aside from washing your hands and not gathering in large groups, is to stock up on two weeks of supplies, in case we have to quarantine ourselves.
David Palazzetti gave his thoughts on the South Kingstown facilities project a few weeks back. His thoughts can be seen on SK Spotlight on Facebook. David has experience in the construction field so has the experience and knowledge of large projects like this.
This is a time we will remember for the rest of our lives, a time to tell our grandchildren about. While the history books can record what happens now, we will have to answer for how we act through this crisis.
To the Citizens of the North Kingstown Community and Beyond:
These are serious times. As I am sure everyone knows, the governor declared a state of emergency through April 8 (the maximum duration the law allows) and shortly thereafter the North Kingstown Town Council authorized our town manager to do likewise.
I was three years old when I contracted lobar pneumonia. It was 1944 and World War II was raging. A new miracle drug called penicillin was developed most of it being delivered to the military. One of the few doctors in the one-horse town in Connecticut where I grew up was able somehow to beg enough to give me one injection of the drug. Dr. Gorley saved my life.
Looking to get away from crowds or stuffy rooms? So far social distancing doesn’t mean we have to stay indoors. Now is a great time to get out into the open air and explore local open space. There may be some early morning frosts, but these cool March days make for very comfortable hiking, biking, or just sitting and enjoying the view.
On the evening of Wednesday, March 4, the Elks Lodge in Wakefield was abuzz with activity surrounding the South Kingstown CARES Adult Spelling Bee. This is the 15th year CARES has held the event, an evening of friendly but fierce competition that brings together spellers from our local schools and all corners of our community.
I went to the facilities informational meeting at the high school this past Saturday.
On a guess, I would say there were between 100 to 125 people there. I felt there were a good number of people there that found out about the meeting from a flier given to them from a South Kingstown resident. My personal feeling is if the School Committee can pay for duplicate studies being done, then they should have been able to send out notices in the mail to all SK taxpayers.
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.
