School renovations progressing

September 10, 2012

EAST GREENWICH — School Superintendent Victor Mercurio knew that a lot of work needed to be done in a short amount of time when it came to the first stage of the renovation process with Meadowbrook Farms Elementary School.

July 28, 2012

EAST GREENWICH — After the cast and crew completed one of the first takes of the new film, “Self Storage,” actor Michael Berryman walked over to young local actor – and director of the project – Tom DeNucci and asked to see the playback of the finished scene.

Youths thrive at conference

July 28, 2012

SMITHFIELD — Almost a quarter century ago, the first premise of the Youth-to-Youth Conference was to deter high-school kids from getting involved with drugs and alcohol and running into problems in conjunction with the two.

Sewer facility in need of facelift

July 15, 2012

EAST GREENWICH — Every time he plans out his annual budget, East Greenwich Public Works director Joseph Duarte has to pretty much prepare for the worst when it comes to his sewage treatment facility.

Within the past calendar year, Duarte has had four huge disks near the rotating biological compactor, one of the more mechanical portions of the treatment plant, collapse because of the heavy corrosive environment where gas converts to acid in the condensation process.
