CUMBERLAND â Students at the high school Tuesday were asked to put their lives first and not to even think about texting when they are driving.
The request came from R.I. Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin, a former police officer, who is trying to warn students around the state about the sometimes fatal risks of texting when in a motor vehicle and getting them to pledge they will be safe.
PROVIDENCE â You have probably received e-mails telling you that $1,000 or more is available to you today by making a phone call or clicking an Internet link. If you live in a low-income neighborhood, there may be a storefront nearby where similar âshort-termâ loans are offered.
