Author returns to Lincoln to help keep kids safe

November 8, 2010

LINCOLN — One would think the last place Keith Smith, even in adulthood, would want to visit is his hometown.
After all, this is the place where — at age 14 — he had been abducted, beaten and raped by a warped pedophile who had a penchant for violence and sexual abuse against children.
On the contrary, Smith indicated he reveled in his return to Lincoln on this October night.

N.S. keeps administrator, Hamilton

November 2, 2010

NORTH SMITHFIELD — Town Administrator Paulette Hamilton won re-election easily Tuesday night and thanks to local voters, will also keep her job.
A ballot question that would have changed Hamilton’s elected administrator’s post to a Town Council-appointed town manager was soundly defeated by local voters turning out at the polls, 2,980 opposed to 1,507 in favor.
The administrator proposal, Question 5, was most significant of a list of eight charter questions placed on the ballot. The remaining items covered largely technical and wording changes for the charter.
