PAWTUCKET â€” Where better to gather information for one's â€śMain Street Initiativeâ€ť than on Main Street itself? Governor Lincoln Chafee joined Pawtucket Mayor Donald Grebien and a group of state and local economic development and planning officials on Tuesday for a walking tour of the city's downtown.
CUMBERLAND â€” The School Committee voted Tuesday night to select North Kingstown School Superintendent Phillip Thornton for its vacant superintendent position.
Thornton will be offered a salary of $150,000, nearly $3,000 more than his current salary.
When asked for comment following Tuesday evening's North Kingstown School Committee meeting, Thornton told the North Kingstown Standard Times he needed more time to process the news and talk it over with his family before he could comment, one way or another, on when he might be ready to make a decision.
