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.
WOONSOCKET â€” It used to take a trip to New Hampshire or some other state if a Rhode Islander wanted to legally buy fireworks for the Fourth of July.
Thanks to the stateâ€™s approval of a fireworks sales law last year, you donâ€™t have to go any farther than the Diamond Hill Road business district to pick up legal Fourth of July firework display products.
