REHOBOTH â If you talk to golfers who play Rehoboth Country Club on a regular basis, one thing becomes clear.
âYou canât spray the ball on this course,â East Providence native Luke Ring admitted. âI try to hit the ball in the middle of fairway and then get the ball on the green as quickly as possible. And that isnât easy. Rehoboth has distance and itâs very narrow on most holes.â
Pawtucketâs Al Deroche, a retired firefighter, strikes a similar note.
PROVIDENCE â Gov. Lincoln Chafeeâs much-ballyhooed and extensively reviled sales tax proposal was largely discarded by legislative leaders in their $7.7 billion state budget plan for next year, which passed the House Finance Committee on a voice vote Friday evening.
