YMCA patrons breaking a sweat on new gear

October 11, 2011

By MARTHA SMITH
Special to the Standard

NORTH KINGSTOWN – The music is pulsating, the sound of iron clangs like an army of bots playing tackle football and, everywhere, men are sweating and flexing.
If it were anywhere else, this would clearly qualify as a man cave.
But it’s the West Bay Family YMCA and this roomful of guys can be forgiven for really, really enjoying themselves: the room was gutted and repainted and all its equipment is new, as are the treadmills and other apparatus in the cardio center.

Tell Me Your Story: He's had a lifelong love of books

October 9, 2011

By MARTHA SMITH
Special to the Standard

NORTH KINGSTOWN – When John Patterson’s parents moved to town in the early 1940s, the first place they lived when he was a small child was in a house next door to the Davisville Free Library.
In retrospect that experience seems like a foretelling of things to come.
“My father was a professional wrestler known as Jake ‘Thunderbolt’ Patterson after a hold he created called The Thunderbolt. In the off-season he was an ironworker and we came here so he and my mother could work at the Navy bases.

NORTH KINGSTOWN—After a three-month examination of the town’s animal ordinance, the North Kingstown Town Council voted Monday night to scrap plans that would have restricted the number of dogs that its residents are allowed to have in their homes.
Citing a reluctance to “infringe on the rights of citizens”, the council voted 5-0 to shelve the change in language that would have imposed a three-dog limit on the number of licensed dogs per household.
