Experiencing RI history in Hopkinton

November 14, 2011

HOPKINTON - Hope Valley Elementary Fourth Grade Social Studies Teacher Denise Moretti-Foggo believes that when students gain first-hand experience of what they are being taught, by seeing and touching, it helps them commit the knowledge to memory.

She had been teaching her students about the history of Rhode Island, and more specifically the history of Hopkinton, in recent weeks, in preparation for Historical Hopkinton: A Living History Day Field Trip.

A Coast Guard veteran looks back on the history of the Barque Eagle (Opinion)

November 13, 2011

It seems the term “Tall Ship” must have come from John Masefield’s poem, Sea Fever. My sea-faring Dad quoted that poem to me a hundred times, but he never sailed in a Tall Ship. Still, as a seafarer, he too felt the romance that whistled with the wind in the rigging.

Tickled Pink features superior consignment shopping, selling (Business Feature)

November 12, 2011

WYOMING - Back when consignment shopping became the trendy thing to do, I jumped on the bandwagon with everyone else. But I noticed that, over time, most stores raised their prices to the point where it made more sense to just go shopping at a regular store and spend a couple more dollars to get brand new items. I noticed the clothing available in consignment shops becoming outdated and, unless you were an average medium size, the odds were slim that you were going to find anything to fit you. However, I’ve recently reclaimed my love of consignment shopping and it’s all because of a little place called “Tickled Pink” on Main Street in Wyoming.

More work ahead to improve foster care shortcomings (Opinion)

November 8, 2011

Thirty years ago, as a high school student in Warwick , I can clearly remember the first foster child my parents welcomed to our home. She was a close friend, and while I was too young to fully understand many of the struggles she faced, I came to learn much more about her challenges and others as my parents continued to care for more than a dozen foster children during my adolescent and young adult years.

Manufacturers should be held responsible for toxic waste (Opinion)

November 5, 2011

The amount of trash produced by homes and businesses that poses problems for public health and the environment keeps growing. It has reached the point where we must work out better ways to keep dangerous trash out of landfills and out of our water supplies. And we will have to decide who will be responsible, because when we leave that question unanswered, the burden inevitably falls on taxpayers and on innocent people who are exposed to toxic materials.
