SOUTH KINGSTOWN – The Rhode Island Department of Health recently found that Bayview Pharmacy on Tower Hill Road has been compounding medications in violation of state law and ordered it to stop doing so immediately.

Tell Me Your Story: Scialo Brothers makes Italian favorites

PROVIDENCE – Today, let us give thanks for the Scialo Brothers Bakery, a place where heritage is embraced, the traditional way of doing things is as relevant as it was nearly a century ago and stalwart customers often say to the owners, “We remember your father.”
This repository of crusty bread, cakes laden with chocolate, nuts, fruit and cream, tiramisu, sfogliatelle, Russian tea cakes, quantis; tarts and pies is a treasure trove. It is what diabetics like me imagine heaven must be like.

It’s a message all six of North Kingstown and Exeter’s state representatives can’t stress enough.
