Richmond Elementary gets a rise out of Bob's

May 16, 2012

RICHMOND - Most Rhode Islanders are familiar with Bob’s Discount Furniture. Whether or not they have actually bought a mattress or living room set at the retail furniture chain is irrelevant– everyone has seen or heard the quirky commercials on television and radio that feature an animated version of Bob himself or even local sports heroes.

Celebrations of Faith: Heistand named 35th rector

May 14, 2012

By MARTHA SMITH
Special to the Standard

NORTH KINGSTOWN – The Rev. Virginia Heistand, a single mom of three, sits in her sun-drenched, book-filled study in St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.
Beaming, she declares, “Everything in my world has changed in the last three months and it’s wonderful.”
In that timeframe, she has become the venerable Wickford church’s first female full-time minister – although other women have served in interim roles – and, after a career in clergy housing, she has purchased her first home, in rural Hope Valley.

Tell Me Your Story: North Kingstown's Mike Martin finds rugby scrum-ptious sport

May 13, 2012

NORTH KINGSTOWN – If you entered a crowded room – Starbuck’s on Ted Rod Road, say – and were looking for a rugby player whose day job involves setting up massive stage equipment for rock concerts, your eye would immediately fall on Mike Martin.
He is, well, burly and looks as though he could hold his own in a scrum.
