“It’s All About The Kids…” By Gina Wesley-Silva

When you first meet Dr. Nadine Lima, the newly appointed principal of Emma G. Whiteknact Elementary School in East Providence, words like “elegant” and “refined” immediately come to mind. Dr. Lima is tall and commanding, and she possesses a kind, yet determined manner. She comes across as no-nonsense leader who is both fair and wise. Dr. Lima is a focused and passionate administrator who is adamant about making certain that the needs of her students are her top priority. “I have a student-centered approach,” she explains, “not only educationally, but emotionally and socially too. Our little ones come to us and we have to do our best to meet all of their needs! That is my main focus!” Lima explains that her “kids come first” attitude and approach to life was taught to her by her beloved role model and mentor, her late grandmother. “My Nanny was a wonderful woman! She taught me early on that kids have to be the priority. It just makes sense! Everything has got to be centered around their benefit,” she said emphatically. Dr. Lima arrived at Whiteknact as part of a city wide restructuring program. Her career in the East Providence school system began with an assignment at Orlo Ave School from August 000 through June 004, and then continued with an assignment at J.R.D. Oldham School from August 004 through June 010. When asked how she felt about the E.P. school system, Dr. Lima explained, “I like the concept of neighborhood schools! The schools tend to be small and manageable, so as the principal you are really able to get to know your students, because it‘s about them! It‘s about creating a friendly, yet educational environment for learning and teaching.” She went on to explain, “We’re here for the kids! We are public servants and we get paid to serve the children, so it is up to us to set the foundation to support students so that they can succeed.” continued on page 4

Silver Spring Students Kate Mendillo, Paige and Ashlyn Messier had their 2nd annual lemonade stand fundraiser in September. With the help of the Townie Football team they were able to raise close to $150.00, which was matched by Townie Alumni John Carnevale. Close to $300.00 was given to a local child who had major surgery in September.

East Providence News Briefs Police Investigating Green Laser Pointer Directed From Riverside Into Two Airplanes

Pilots from two airplanes have reported that green laser pointers, popular among stargazers, have been shined into their cabins over the last month. The lasers are strong enough to cause temporary blindness and such a condition while piloting an airplane has obvious safety issues. It is believed that the beams have originated from Riverside and are being investigated by a team of law enforcement and public safety agencies including the Department of Homeland Security, the Transportation Security Administration, the Federal Bureau of Investigations, the Rhode Island State Police and the East Providence Police Department (EPPD). Directing laser pointers towards an aircraft is a federal crime that carries a penalty of a minimum of 10 years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines. Anyone with information on this matter can contact Lt. Blinn at 435-7600.

Water Level Of Turner Reservoir Dam To Be Lowered To Start Fish Passage Construction For Ten Mile River Restoration

The contractor hired to construct fish passage facilities at Hunts Mill and Turner Reservoir Dams in East Providence, Rhode Island, will start mobilizing at the site to start construction on Sept. 6, 010. In order to begin construction of the fish passage facilities, the water level at Turner Reservoir Dam must be lowered 30-4 inches. As a result, 15 feet or more of shoreline may be exposed. Officials anticipate that it may take two to three weeks to complete the water lowering for the contractor to start the work. The Ten Mile River watershed, with a total drainage area of about 56 square miles, is located in southeastern Massachusetts and northeastern Rhode Island. About 51 square miles of this drainage area are situated in Massachusetts and the remaining five square miles are located in Rhode Island. For more than 00 years, dams have blocked anadromous river

herring (blueback herring and alewives) and American shad from their historic spawning grounds in the Ten Mile River watershed. These anadromous fish live as adults in salt water, but must return to freshwater to spawn. The project area includes the lower portion of the Ten Mile River watershed, with a specific focus toward providing anadromous fish passage at the first (lowest) three dams on the river: Omega Pond Dam, Hunts Mill Dam and Turner Reservoir Dam. The city of East Providence and the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM) are the nonfederal sponsors for this environmental restoration project. The Denil fishways will provide for upstream migration of adult Blueback Herring, Alewife, and American shad to historic spawning areas. Each Denil fishway would be 4-feet wide and have a 1 vertical on 8 horizontal floor slope to allow the passage of both river herring (blueback herring and alewives) and American shad. The project will restore anadromous fish populations to the lower Ten Mile River up to the Golf Club Dam in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. This would allow anadromous alewives access to about 340 acres of spawning habitat within Omega Pond, Hunts Mill Pond and Turner Reservoir and provide approximately three miles of riverine spawning habitat for blueback herring and American shad.

Did you know the Carousel has a Facebook page? Share memories, photos and stories about the Carousel.


The Crescent Park Carousel was built in 1895 by Charles I.D. Looff, one of the earliest and foremost carousel designers. The Crescent Park Carousel is nationally recognized as a true masterpiece of wood sculpture. Originally built as a showcase for prospective buyers, it is the largest and most elaborate of Looff’s works. The Carousel contains 6 beautifully hand carved figures and four fanciful chariots. Overall richness of effect was Looff’s trademark and the Crescent Park Carousel gives full interpretation to that spirit. Elaborate embellishments of decorative panels, beveled mirrors, faceted glass jewels, electric lights, colored sandwich glass windows and its original band organ

music surround flying steeds to create Looff’s “Total Carousel Experience.” Saved in the 1970’s by a handful of residents, the Crescent Park Carousel was placed on the National Register of Historic sites and places in 1976. In 1985, the Rhode Island General Assembly proclaimed the Carousel as the State Jewel of American Folk Art and in 1987, the Department of the Interior, National Park Service, designated the Carousel as a National Historic Landmark. Volunteers are always welcome for Carousel Fundraising Events. If interested please call the Carousel Commission office at (401) 435-7518.

“It’s All About The Kids…”

By Gina Wesley-Silva Dr. Lima says another aspect of the neighborhood schools that she particularly enjoys is getting to know the students’ family. “You really get to know the parents and families of the students too. Parents are more apt to be involved when the school is right down the street, and sometimes the parents went to the school themselves, so there is a real sense of involvement and community within the school,” she says. However, not one to upset the apple cart without a good reason, Dr. Lima says she intends to spend her first year getting to know the staff and the various routines that are already established at Whiteknact before she makes any significant changes. Lima says she did her doctorate on school cultures, and the principals’ role in creating a positive school culture. “What I’ll do in my first year is just learn the community, learn all constituents, and not make any drastic changes unless it has to do with student safety or well-being.” She then added, “Some administrators have a more aggressive approach, and they come in and change things right away, but I tend to be a little bit more deliberate then that.” And, as for how she sees her role as principal, she says, “The principles’ role is to set the tone, and also to serve as a facilitator. It’s a lonely job, on the elementary level, because it’s just you - but it is also a job where you are able to self- reflect a lot, and I like that.” Dr. Lima also describes her role as principal as somewhat of a “resident parent”. “When the parents drop their children off in the morning they expect them to return home safely. So, as soon as they come in the front door they’re mine. I am the parent outside the home, and it is a big responsibility,” she says. When asked what her greatest difficulties or challenges might be this year, Dr. Lima thought for a few seconds, and then replied. “To learn the dynamics and the culture of this school. That’s going to be a challenge, but is also exciting! And, little things are important, such as where are fire drills held, or where do the kids line up in the morning. It‘s the simple little organizational things like those that I will focus on learning first,” she said. As a child Dr. Lima attended school(s) in Seekonk, MA and in East Providence. She received her undergrad degree from Kings College in New York, and then began teaching in the Boston area. Later she moved back to RI, where she received a Masters Degree in Educational Administration from Providence College, and then went on to receive a Doctorate in Educational Leadership (K - 1) from Johnson & Wales.

Do You Even Know Who Your State Senator Is? I Didn’t.

I’m David Sullivan a pro-life single guy with a strong Christian faith and boy are we in a mess! Rhode Islanders will be paying for this current mess into the foreseeable future if voters do not get to the polls and ‘’vote the bums out’’! My opponent, Senator DaPonte, for 1 years now, has helped lead us here. On Nov  you can choose to either help save Rhode Island from its problems, or you can let Senator DaPonte and his friends conduct business as usual. Einstein’s definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. This is insanity! It will take strong leadership to make this state prosperous again and I believe I as a self employed small businessman have the experience and moral backbone to confront issues head-on. I’ve worked! From a lemonade stand to paper routes, I’ve been a house painter, landscaper, yes even a garbage man! Mr. Daponte was elected at 0 and is by all accounts a career politician. I wouldn’t mind if my taxes weren’t so high and the roads weren’t such a disaster! So what would I busy myself doing as your Senator? I’ll vote to stop spending money that we do not have, make illegals respect the process or go home and lower taxes by eliminating fraud and waste. People are getting paid that do not work for it! People are receiving benefits that aren’t citizens! People are taking advantage of our compassion! I’ve heard stories about mothers receiving free childcare while they go to the beach! They don’t even have jobs? I also believe it is unfair to overtax homeowners to the point they can no longer afford their homes. I’ve been an investor since 87 and a real estate broker for years. I understand that high taxes discourage home owner-

ship and that in turn hurts the tax base! I also believe landlords have few rights against bad tenants. Leveling the playing field will encourage investment in multi family homes and boost property values! I understand the grief of the homeowner because I’m one! In both Pawtucket and East Providence. My assessments go down and my bills still increase! Cutting taxes is the only way to attract business back to Rhode Island and eliminating waste is the only way to cut taxes! I hope others in District 14 will afford me the opportunity to serve. I believe you will be glad you did. Mr. Daponte has had over a decade. I’d like a shot at getting better results than this. November nd! David Sullivan Senate district 14

East Providence Republicans

Even though it was a beautiful day to vote, it was a bad day for the East Providence Republican City Committee. I have just reviewed the September 14 Primary results. What I saw was the results of blatant misuse of power by The Republican City Committee. Their lack of focus and team playing caused them to lose every position with in the primary they were seeking within our City. This committee’s lack of leadership has basically given all seats to the Democrats. They have now or will lose control of power in the school committee and city council. Even though our City electoral system is non-partisan, we still need a strong multiparty system. The Republican Party of East Providence needs to look within itself and find a means to correct their shortcomings. Bob Enos continued on page 6

Restoring Civility to the City

Restoring civility to the city. This is the talking point of the union backed candidates in our city. What civility do they wish to achieve? I recall attending a school committee meeting where union members throughout the state took our high school auditorium making demands of my community. I even recall a union member’s twisted face of rage screaming at an elderly lady, “If you don’t like the taxes, MOVE!” Such civility! So how is civility restored? East Providence has always had a School Committee and City Council made up of a majority of union affiliated members. Throughout time they benefited themselves and their family members giving away the store in generous contracts and constant tax increases to pay for them ignoring the infrastructure of our city, our crumbling schools and ignoring the downward spiral of our school system. At one time, the public sector workers had the great benefit of job security over making the “big bucks” of the private sector. That is no longer the case, now they got it all, job security, a Rolls Royce package of benefits, lifetime pensions and yearly raises, step increases and whatever else they can grab through contract negotiations. The private sector is struggling with job insecurity, companies cutting back, government imposed health care and most people who are lucky enough to be working are running scared. When the union members scream “I pay taxes too!” well, yeah, you’re happy to pay to keep your livelihood. However, the rest of us are paying you and question what we’re getting for our hard earned money. Joe Larisa is not well like, but likeable is not what I want. I want somebody who’s watching my pocketbook, not caving into bullying demands by union thugs. Tony Carcieri, he’s hated by the unions. That’s good enough for me. That means he’s doing his job. Tony and Steve Santos are looking out for the best interests of the students first, not the adults employed by the school department. Hopefully, we will get past SC member John Amaral on board. At one time, he was the only member asking for co-pays and pension reform which fell on deaf ears in a union controlled school committee. Look at the candidates running and who’s contributing to their campaigns. Go to the Board of Elections website and check for yourself. Do you want candidates backed by unions who have nothing to do with your community or people who are looking out for you? So what’s your choice, East Providence? Civility and high taxes or fiscal responsibility? Fran Brelsford Riverside, RI

Richard Rodi Can Make a Difference

During the last Presidential election my doorbell rang and when I opened the door it was a man who told me he was Richard Rodi and he was running for State Representative. Now I have been here in Rhode Island since I was 7 from Portugal and have never voted. I explained to Mr. Rodi that I felt all politicians for the most part don’t listen to the voters and are crooks, so I was not interested. He nodded and continued to listen as I explained everything I felt was wrong with our City and State and how I am a businessman with a family that no one gave anything to. How I worked hard for everything I have and that it seemed the State just keeps making it tougher and tougher on us all. After about twenty minutes of listening to me explain it all Mr. Rodi asked me a pretty simple question. “Then why don’t you vote?” I then explained that I felt my vote does not matter any way. He said, “Then you cannot complain if you don’t vote.” He went on about why it is so important to vote and that my vote does count. He said that I have a voice and the freedom to express my views in the voting booth. I remember him saying, “You have to be part

October 010 The Reporter of the process to help change the process, but again if you don’t vote then you have no voice”. We shook hands and he wished me and my family well and went on his way to the next house. Over the next week or two I decided that Mr. Rodi was right and that I should register to vote. I made my way over to City Hall one afternoon to register to vote. As I was filling out a voter registration application I noticed that Mr. Rodi walked in with his son for some election business. I tapped him on the shoulder and asked, Mr. Rodi, do you remember me? For a second he looked at me and said with a smile, “Antonio?” he then said how happy he was to see that I was registering to vote. I was impressed that he remembered my name. I told him that he inspired me to vote after our talk on my lawn. He then asked, “So do I have your vote?” I told him I was still thinking about it and would consider him. A few weeks later Mr. Rodi was on my porch again asking for my vote. After another long talk I agreed to support him and told him I would ask my wife and family to do the same. He then went a little further and asked if I would put his sign on my lawn, I said no I don’t feel good putting signs on my lawn, he then said fair enough and shook my hand and as he walked towards his truck I stopped him and said, give me 4 signs. For the first time in my life I became a voter and I was supporting a candidate for office and was putting a sign on my lawn and commercial properties. Even though Mr. Rodi eventually lost his race, I have continuously seen him in the neighborhood or in the paper. He has been working hard for us and I called him a few months ago and asked him, are you planning on running again, he said yes and I told him that he has my vote. I think he is a hard working guy that really cares about the people of this state. He would make a difference. So vote for him, we need a guy like him for a change. Thank you.

Federally Chartered & Fedeally Insured. Member East Providence Chamber of Commerce

I recently attended a debate held by the East Bay Republicans and the Rhode Island Voter Coalition. I had received an email stating that three of the candidates for my district (District 18) would be there. Senator DeVall (Democrat), James Miller (Independent) and Steve Gerling (Republican) had all replied stating they would be there. I thought it would be a great opportunity to hear their opinions on how to help Rhode Island. Mr. Gerling was the only candidate who showed up. He gave a presentation of his views, and answered questions from the audience, some of which were very difficult. The organizers of the debate tried to make sure that voters were able to hear the facts. All I can assume is that Mr. Gerling was the only one who really wanted the public to hear his platform. These people want East Providence voters to elect them on November nd, but it seems that Senator DeVall and Mr. Miller either don’t want the voters to hear what they have to say, or didn’t want to go up against Mr. Gerling. I hope voters will take this into account when they go to the polls in November. Lola Lee

Have We Learned Yet?

Thank You

This will be the last issue of The Reporter that most people will read before the November elections, and the last chance readers will get to make an informed decision about what each candidate really stands for. If you’ve visited my website (see my ad), all you September 14th was a wonderful day for myself have to do is read, because my schedule is spelled out clearly and my family. I want to thank the people of without additives like; “will work towards” or “will explore possibiliRiverside for coming out and supporting me on ties”. We’ve already “explored” what happens when government my first run for public office. refuses to stop spending, and the legislature has indeed “worked towards” shifting the burden of their mismanagement onto cities Since announcing my candidacy I have received and towns with proven disastrous results. The reality is that this is a tremendous amount of encouragement, the tipping point. If we don’t stop the wasteful spending this time, support and enthusiasm. we may lose the ability to do so. They are hoping you don’t realize that. Have we learned why they are vague about their plans? Have I am truly humbled. we learned that we cannot tax ourselves into prosperity? This election, the same old gang that invented wasteful spendSincerely, ing now claims they want to eliminate it. Any Democrat claiming Michael D. DiGioia to be less likely to raise your taxes seems to me like a kid claiming to be the driest one in the pool, so the voters get fed promises that Please consider me. Vote Tuesday, November 2nd fighting tax increases is a work in progress. I suppose they want voters to believe they keep planning to “do that next time”. Have we learned that they don’t really intend to keep their promises to taxpayers and businesses? No politician should dare make the absurd promise to create jobs, because the truth is; they can’t. Jobs are created when businesses need employees, and feel confident enough in the economy to hire them. I find it frightening that tired old misnomers such as “economic development” are still bantered about when existing business has been begging for our help all along. Business doesn’t need development, but it needs relief so it can develop ENDORSED DEMOCRAT - CITY COUNCIL WARD 4 itself. Generally, it is counterproductive to develop something and Paid for by the friends of Michael DiGioia strangle it at the same time. We would do well to worry more about the foot on our neck than getting a new shirt. Let’s get the cost of doing business down, and let the business owners do the rest. Have we learned why people open businesses yet? If not for the tragedy, I would find it comical that after we boot out the guy selling snake oil, a salesman comes over the Average Size hill selling a magical elixir, and people get Ranch or Cape Home in line to buy it. Democrats tell voters they will “work, help, support”, or maybe even “fight for” vaguely depicted ideals of security, but they avoid definitive terms like; “will sponsor” or “will introduce”. How secure is 1200 sq. ft. that? How about; “state aid to reduce local Comparable savings on larger homes taxes”? Have we learned where (or from whom) the state gets its money? Please, go outside and look at your roof. How long before you need to fix it? Does your porch, deck, or driveway need repair? Is your car getting old? Does it need work? How about tires? Are you putting it off because you can’t comfortably spend the 1379 Grand Army Highway money? The roofer, the contractor and the Route 6 • Swansea mechanic are suffering too, because more and more of your money is being funneled through the statehouse and to those of their choosing before it gets to you. Private business is being squeezed out. Still they dare FREE Estimates to promise that this time, they are listening. Your Local Family Run Business for over 50 years! Have we learned who it is the Democrats seek to help?

October 2010 The Reporter possibility of future acts by others that may be far worse. No one, and we repeat, no one (except for the police), should be allowed to stop a school bus carrying students and be allowed to board without the police being alerted and called to the scene as a Code Red Alert. School bullying does not stop alone with students, but includes teachers, parents and even school committee members. Mr. Carcieri, you were wrong and showed a complete lack of the leadership that was entrusted upon you by the citizens of East Providence in caring for our students. You have failed us and we ask that you submit your resignation immediately. We further ask the School Committee to immediately censure you on all future actions taken by the school committee while we await your resignation as a member of the School Committee. We no longer want you on the School Committee handling students and school business. Mr. Carcieri, you uncontrollably bullied these young children and we ask you to submit your letter of resignation immediately for the betterment of our community! William and Elaine Drapeau Rumford, RI

Formerly of 2475 Pawtucket Ave

Now Accepting Drop-offs & Pick-ups at 6 Convenient Locations: Prestige Cleaners 338 County Rd., Barrington RI & 753 Fall River Ave., Seekonk MA

East Providence residents bucked a national trend in the September 14 primaries by reinstating a number of incumbents as their party nominees: State Senators Frank DeVall Rex Cleaners and Daniel DaPonte won their Democratic primaries against opponents John Rossi and 2838 Pawtucket Ave., East Providence RI Brian Castro (Castro, however, was elected to join DaPonte and thirteen others on the Ward Committee). Republican David Sullivan will oppose Daniel DaPonte for the District 14 seat Anawan Cleaners in November; Republican Stephen Gerling is running against Frank DeVall. Junction Plaza , Rt.44-118, Rehoboth MA Democratic incumbent Helio Melo (District 64) was unopposed in a primary for his office, as was incumbent Roberto DaSilva (District 63), along with Mary Duffy Messier (District 62) S & B Cleaners and Joy Hearn (District 66). Mr. Melo and Mr. DaSilva will be unopposed for re-election Briarwood Plaza, 8 Olney St., Seekonk MA in November, but Mary Duffy Messier will face Republican opponent Thomas Clupny, and Perfect Tailoring Joy Hearn will face Republican candidate Margaret Kane for District 66; both Clupny and 454 Taunton Ave., Seekonk MA Kane had no opponents in their primaries. Republican incumbent John Savage was essentially re-nominated to his District 65 seat, defeating fellow Republican Stephanie Sivalingham, and will be unopposed in the election. After a bruising year of battles over teacher, police and firefighter contracts, two City Council members chose to step down, so Valerie Perry’s seat will be filled by either Thomas Rose or Steven Gianlorenzo, the top two (with no party designation) vote-getters respectively, both of them getting more votes than fellow nominee Stephen Arruda. City Councilman Bruce DiTraglia will be challenged • Furniture • Brush for his seat on the Council in November by the bigger unaffiliated • Appliances • Yard Waste vote-getter for Ward 4, Michael DiGioia; both of them got more votes in the primary than William Ricci. • Construction Debris • Trash Bruce Rogers, a Democrat and former Mayor, seeks to replace Demolition of...Fences, Sheds, Decks, Pools Brian Coogan on the City Council, who is stepping down. Council-at-Large Mayor Joseph Larisa will be opposed by former City Let us do the work Solicitor and Democrat Billy Conley in November. Councilman Free Estimates Call Tony Robert Cusack, widely considered Mayor Larisa’s right-hand man, faces a political newcomer and Democrat named Katie Kleyla. (It is interesting to note that the trend toward incumbents seen in some East Providence races did not carry over into the Providence mayoral election, in which the two men with long histories in local politics - John Lombardi and Steven Costantino - were defeated soundly in the Democratic primary by relative newcomer Angel Taveras, who got almost 50% of that Providence vote.) According to the Board of Canvassers, the East Providence School Committee members - who were also involved in some controversial decisions in the past two years - will all be up for reFree Estimates election in November. Signs popping up around town state that Charlie Tsonos is seeking the seat on that committee now held by INDUSTRIAL • COMMERCIAL • RESIDENTIAL publicly outspoken Chairman Anthony Carcieri. At-large member Luisa Abatecola is being opposed by John Amaral. The incumbent CAMERON MA 508-643-0001 from Ward 4, Steven Santos, has been opposed by Christine Rossi.

October 2010 The Reporter John Loughlin will be the Republican running for the Congressional seat vacated by Patrick Kennedy in a race against outgoing Providence Mayor and Democrat David Cicilline, who won the Democratic primary against (in descending order of votes gotten in East Providence) former Rhode Island Democratic Party chair Bill Lynch, State Representative David Segal, and Anthony Gemma. Loughlin was opposed in the Republican primary by Kara Russo, who also ran for the Lieutenant Governor slot - and lost - against Heidi Rogers for that Republican nomination. Even though she defeated Russo in the primaries, after the votes were in Heidi Rogers announced that she would not pursue the Lieutenant Governor post, so incumbent Democrat Elizabeth Roberts, who defeated fellow Democrat Jeremy Kapstein in that primary, may be running unopposed by anyone other than Robert Healey of the Cool Moose Party. As we go to press, Republican and primary-loser Kara Russo is trying to revive her candidacy for the Lieutenant Governor post. Chris Blazejewski defeated Therese Caron to be the Democratic nominee for the State House seat vacated by David Segal when he ran for Patrick Kennedy’s seat. Incumbent Congressman James Langevin won the Democratic primary for his seat against Betsey Dennigan and Ernest Greco, and will be opposed in the election by Republican Mark Zaccaria, who defeated (in descending number of East Providence votes gotten) William Clegg III, Michael Gardiner and Donald Robbio in the Republican primary. John Robitaille defeated Victor Moffitt in the Republican gubernatorial race. Robitaille will go up against outgoing Treasurer and Democrat Frank Caprio - who ran unopposed in the Democratic primaries - and Independent Lincoln Chafee for the governor‘s office. Rhode Island’s Moderate Party is putting forward their former Chairman, software engineer and entrepreneur Ken Block, as a candidate for Governor. Incumbent Secretary of State A. Ralph Mollis won his Democratic primary against State Representative Leonidas Raptakis, and will be opposed in November by Republican Catherine Kerry Taylor, who had no opponent in that Republican primary. In a close race, Peter Kilmartin defeated Stephen Archambault and Joseph Fernandez in the hotly contested Democratic primary to replace Patrick Lynch as Attorney General. Kilmartin will now be running against unopposed Republican candidate Erik Wallin. New TV ads also indicate that longtime lawyer and political activist Keven McKenna is running as an Independent for Attorney General. Ads are also airing for the Moderate Party’s candidate for Attorney General, trial lawyer and former Save the Bay director Chris Little. Gina Raimondo is the unopposed Democratic candidate for General Treasurer, and she will be running against unopposed Republican Kernan King. The top five vote-getters, and thus elected, to Senatorial District Committee 18 are Karen Souza, Sharlene Damiani, Robin Bothelo, Brenda Lister and Michael Tracy. The State Committeewoman for District 65 will be Sharlene Damiani. The fifteen top vote-getters for the East Providence Ward 2 Committee, listed by descending number of votes, were Helio Melo, Daniel DaPonte, Anthony Almeida, Brian Castro, Bryan Silva, Julie Silva, Brian Coogan, John Braga, David Medeiros, Manuel Sousa, Lucy Rose, Fernando Pereira, Brian Monteiro, Matthew Braga and Stephen Furtado.

On September 11, 010, East Bay Center participated in The Rhode Island Rally for Recovery, in honor of the 1st Annual National Alcohol & Drug Addiction Recovery Month. The event, which was held in Providence at the Roger Williams Memorial Park and was part of official Waterfire festivities, surpassed all expectations for support, collaboration, entertainment, and family fun. EBC staff Patricia Arel, Frances Bradshaw, and Karin M. Donovan joined many community providers throughout the state to empower and celebrate personal journeys towards recovery from mental health and addictions issues. EBC’s table was busy as folks dropped by to ask questions about programs that could benefit themselves or family members. Program brochures were also available to share with friends and family. But the busiest part of the table centered around Pat’s incredible face painting skills for children and adults. It was a lot of fun watching “young and old” flip through Pat’s binder of color photos and having difficulty choosing exactly which character or design they wanted, as each one was more festive than the last. Crafts were also available for children to explore their special creativity by decorating personalized bookmarks and door hangers. The event culminated with a moving processional to Waterfire with a candle lighting in memory of loved ones. Events such as this highlight that help is always available when you most need it. The continuum of our services and the dedication and compassion of our staff provide everything you need to take that initial step. If you or someone you know needs help, please call our intake line at 401-46-1195 extension 115. We’re here to help you succeed through recovery. We also encourage you to visit our web site at for additional information.

East Providence School Committee Anthony A. Carcieri, EP School Committee Chair

two decisions Reflect Landmark Accomplishments

In difficult times, school committee and administrative leadership require courage to see the forest through the trees. During the deepest recession and record unemployment levels we were faced with an historic deficit, less revenue, unaffordable and unsustainable contracts, and little focus on our long deteriorating school buildings and even worse, less focus on our kids’ education. I understand the difficult balance that must be struck when faced with high employee expectations, past precedent and a stagnant educational system supported by taxpayer dollars. In the past  years I have learned that it is easy to be critical of that which we don’t know a lot about. It is easy to become upset by change. I have come to appreciate why previous school committees and administrations may not have questioned the status quo. Questioning the status quo is a very hard thing to do. As we all know now, questioning the status quo results in an uproar. I believe it was done, in part, to maintain labor peace. Working together to maintain labor peace is always preferable. Collaboratively solving major problems is always the ideal way to reach agreement. But, collaboration and negotiation must at a point sooner than later, strike the balance among employee expectations, reinvigorating our educational programs, declining revenue and our East Providence taxpayers’ ability to pay for our schools. I received a letter dated January 13th, from Bill Raabe, a director of the NEA - the national teachers’ union located in Washington, DC, parent organization of the RI NEA and their local affiliate, the EPEA. Thankfully, he admitted that we had been negotiating with the local teachers’ union for over a year. He wrote, “It is my understanding that the School Committee and EPEA have been in bargaining for over a year, which has failed to produce a collective bargaining agreement. After going through interest arbitration, the EPSD rejected the arbitration award as to economic matters, and unilaterally implemented its own last offer, an action that cut $3. million from the salary and benefits of EPSD employees.” Bill Raabe acknowledged that our school committee had been bargaining with the union but he made clear that we must pay for salary increases and benefits with money that we didn’t have in order to truly maintain a spirit of collaboration with union leadership. He wrote, “NEA believes that such unilateral action is improper and destroys the collaborative and collegial spirit between management and labor that is necessary to productive labor relations and to improving our schools.” He closed with, “It is our sincere hope and expectation that the School Committee will reconsider its unilateral action, restore employee salary and benefits cuts, and return to good faith bargaining.” Mr. Raabe’s letter made clear that labor collaboration meant “give the money back.” As chairman and one member of our school committee, I would have liked to see things go better but better would have led to maintaining the status quo. It is unfortunate that this school committee has been portrayed by some people in our community as a body “unwilling to bargain.” We know that “unwilling to bargain” meant unwilling to sign-off on another contract that was unsustainable and unaffordable at the expense of our students’ and taxpayers’ needs. Had we signed off on another standard contract then the status quo would have continued: no meaningful revenue left to replace outdated textbooks; no revenue continued on page 19

THERE HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY! THE RECORD JOE LARISA DOESN’T TALK ABOUT: • In his last three years as Mayor, taxes have been raised 10.5% • Since taking office in 2008 the City’s bond rating has been downgraded twice • Based on the current audit East Providence’s deficit is $6.1 Million • His deficit reduction plan was rejected by the Auditor General • Was the attorney who put Central Falls into receivership resulting in a junk bond rating and a 19% tax increase imposed by the unelected receiver • Has repeatedly threatened to put the City of East Providence into bankruptcy • In July his conviction for violation of the Rhode Island Code of Ethics was confirmed by the Rhode Island Superior Court

THERE IS A BETTER WAY BILLY CONLEY’S RECORD: • Negotiated collective bargaining agreements for the Town of Johnston which resulted in savings of $5 million • Served as Chief Legal Counsel for the Rhode Island Ethics Commission enforcing the highest ethical standards of conduct for all public officials • Led the Town of Johnston’s successful legal fight enabling development by a global corporation adding millions of dollars to the Town’s tax base • Attacked and reversed existing defaults and judgments against the Town saving hundreds of thousands of dollars for its taxpayers

IF ELECTED BILLY WILL: • Stop attacking our city’s people and start attacking our city’s problems • Never threaten to place the City into bankruptcy • Will implement a deficit reduction plan that will work for the City of East Providence • Restore the City’s bond rating in order to maintain our schools and infrastructure

October 010 The Reporter to provide the tools to upgrade our curriculum; no revenue to provide necessary technology to teach our students or to provide our teachers with the teaching tools necessary to support their professional development. Had we maintained the status quo, the taxpayers of East Providence would still be paying the entire health insurance costs for our school districts’ employees. As long as collaboration and bargaining continues without resolution, the status quo is maintained and all at the expense of students and taxpayers in the community. Employees in the public sector are necessary for the greater good of our community. But, our community needs to be able to afford these services without being forced into debt and without forfeiting continuous improvement of these services. And so, we made hard decisions during difficult times but decisions that led to incredible improvements for our students and our community:  The scandal at our Career and Technical Center was stopped in its tracks. Our CTC students will now benefit from expanded programs: Cosmetology, Culinary Arts, Web/graphic design, Advertising/media, Bio-science engineering and Environmental & life sciences (in partnership with Brown, URI, Bryant, and Johnson & Wales).  Our teachers now have the necessary tools to improve their professional skills. We now have 3 days of in-district professional development and literacy and numeracy coaches in the elementary and secondary schools.  Our teachers now have time to work collaboratively to improve student achievement levels.  Our students now have the technology to support a 1st century education.  Our math curriculum has been improved and upgraded and our science curriculum will follow.  Professional development is aligned with our curriculum – a first for our school department.  Our facilities have been improved within our current revenue restrictions.  Landmark East Providence School Department /Bradley Partnership- we have brought our special needs kids home.  Administrators and teachers now pay 0% toward the cost of health insurance premium.  Central administration salaries reduced 5%.  Developing a Student & Family Center at abandoned Watters School in partnership with YMCA, Boys & Girls Club, East Bay Community Action and Family TIDES.  Improved student/teacher ratio: 13/1.  Successfully negotiated 4 contracts. Quality education for our kids and savings of over $5 million for taxpayers. I am proud of the fact that our school committee unanimously decided to extend our superintendents’ contract. Dr. Cirillo has delivered innovative, systemic educational upgrades, reached out to create community partnerships and has worked tirelessly to realign our school department to focus on our “Culture of Achievement” in an extraordinarily short period of time. Contrary to the belief of some, such challenges couldn’t ordinarily be addressed without an infusion of significant, additional amounts of money. Money our taxpayers do not have. And so, we have turned enormous challenges into badly needed educational improvements and created innovative community partnerships in the face of difficult times without further burdening our taxpayers. I would like the opportunity to continue this drive for educational excellence at a cost our taxpayers can afford. Thank you, Anthony Carcieri East Providence School Committee, Chairman Ward 1

An Independent Voice for EP Taxpayers

FROM THE MAYOR’S DESK by Joseph S. Larisa, Jr.


On November 2nd, you will decide the direction of East Providence for the next 2 years. You will decide whether East Providence passes the first Charter property tax cap in the State. You will determine whether East Providence remains governed by leaders who are committed to economic justice – ensuring that tax rates are capped at a reasonable levels and fighting for fair and equitable labor contracts. You will decide whether East Providence continues to be the leader in protecting its hard-hit property taxpayers during the “great recession” or whether we go back to the bad old days when politics ruled over merit; and property tax rates were raised to whatever level necessary to fund unaffordable salaries and benefits. All over the State, East Providence is talked about as a City unafraid to fight for fairness, a City with leaders willing to challenge the system and bring much needed change in these awful economic times. While most City Councils and School Committees across Rhode Island gave up the fight and went along to get along – with property taxpayers on the short end – we changed the status quo . . . and we are winning. Where we had to, we fought in court, and won time and time again. Whenever we could, however, we reached historic labor agreements that respected Townie taxpayers. When State leaders imposed draconian cuts on East Providence totaling over $7 million a year on our City and schools, we called them out. When they sided with the special interests over the public interest, we exposed them and won. Most all Townies had to cut their expenses; so your City did so too in a big way. No good deed goes unpunished, so now the Big Labor Bosses and Special Interests say that it is time to put all this good government to an abrupt end. They have hand picked their candidates for Council and School Committee with the endorsement of the political machine. While they talk of “new ideas,” in truth they completely reject the necessary change that has taken place in EP over the last two years. Instead, the candidates want to turn back the clock to the days when politics trumped over good government, contracts were more important than kids, and budgets were balanced on the back of Townie taxpayers. For the sake of the future of our City, please take the time to learn about your local candidates. Ask them: 1) Do you support the Charter Amendment the Council placed on the ballot that would lock in the City 3.5% tax cap by placing it in the Charter? 2) Do you pledge never to increase property tax rates above the 3.5% cap for any reason (just as this Council has refused to do even in the “great recession”)?; 3) Do you support the tough stands taken by the Council to ensure fair and affordable labor contracts with real copays?; and 4) Do you support the heroic stand by the School Committee to value kids over expired contracts and their quest for academic excellence for EP schools, while respecting EP property taxpayers? Bad things happen when good people stay home on election day. So please get up to speed and let your voice be heard on November 2, 2010. As always, if you have any questions, concerns or comments, please email me at * Joe Larisa was elected Mayor of East Providence for a fourth term in December 2008 by the Council. He was elected councilman at large in November 2008, a position he previously held from 1992-2002, and 2004-06.

News from the East Bay Community Action Program...

East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP) offers a wide array of health and human services for area residents. Its upper bay headquarters is located at 100 Bullocks Point Avenue in Riverside. For information on services, call 437-1000.

Taking part in a ceremony marking opening of 70 Turner Avenue in East Providence, East Bay Community’s Action’s Program’s (EBCAP) new facility housing two Head Start classrooms and six supportive apartments for individuals and families, were, from left to right: Richard Godfrey, Executive Director of Rhode Island Housing; Diane Smith, Director of East Bay Coalition for the Homeless, an EBCAP program; Paula Bradley, field liaison for Congressman Patrick Kennedy and an EBCAP board of directors member; Lt. Governor Elizabeth Roberts; Dennis Roy, EBCAP, Chief Executive Officer; Jim Vincent, President of EBCAP’s Board of Directors; Michael Callis, financial specialist from the New England Regional Office of Head Start and Joseph Larisa, Jr., Mayor, City of East Providence. The facility is the former convent for St. Brendan’s Church.

EBCAP Opens New Facility

Lieutenant Governor Elizabeth Roberts and East Providence Mayor Joseph Larisa Jr. joined East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP), Rhode Island Housing, the Housing Resources Commission (HRC) and regional Head Start officials to celebrate the completion of new homes for families who were formerly homeless and new Head Start classrooms. The partners hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house at 70 Turner Ave. in East Providence, a former convent which has been transformed into six service-enriched apartments and two Head Start classrooms. “The opening of 70 Turner Avenue provides additional housing opportunities for individuals and families with children and adds new classrooms to help give children an important educational advantage through the successful Head Start program,” said EBCAP Chief Executive Officer Dennis Roy. “We appreciate the hard work and cooperation of Rhode Island Housing and East Providence officials in making this project a reality.” The six apartments for individuals and families will be operated by East Bay Coalition for the Homeless (EBCH), a program of EBCAP, and bring the number of service-enriched homes for EBCH in the East Bay up to 18. There are two Head Start classrooms on continued on page 24

the first floor, and they replace ones housed in leased space at the Meadowcrest School. One of the classrooms is named in honor of Mary Nugent, who spent 34 years as a Head Start teacher and administrator at EBCAP. Lt. Gov. Roberts presented a Citation to EBCAP and praised the cooperation of local, state and federal government agencies in accomplishing the renovation of the facility to provide new homes and Head Start classrooms. The 70 Turner Ave. facility consists of two, two two-bedroom and four, one-bedroom rental homes, including one fully handicappedaccessible apartment as well as the Head Start classrooms and a children’s play area at the rear of the building. The playground equipment and landscaping were funded through a grant from the Carter Family Charitable Trust. East Providence Mayor Joseph Larisa, Jr. cited the work of East Providence’s planning and zoning officials in working with EBCAP on the development, adding, “This building will be here for many years helping people.” The ceremony celebrated the completion of the rehabilitation of the former St. Brendan’s Church convent in the Riverside section of East Providence. Each new apartment contains energy-efficient appliances which will save the residents money when it comes to energy costs. Individuals and families residing in these homes have the support of a case manager to assist in the development of short-and long-term goals, and they receive supportive services including life skills counseling, job training, education, and food nutrition counseling. “Many partners have joined together to ensure that some of the most vulnerable Rhode Islanders have a safe, healthy home,” said Rhode Island Housing’s Executive Director Richard Godfrey. “These new homes are more than just four walls and a roof; they offer solutions by also providing key services to families and individuals in dire need.”

Rhode Island Housing acquired the vacant building and placed it in the agency’s Land Bank, enabling EBCAP the time needed to assemble the financing to rehabilitate the property. It was then sold to EBCAP, which began an extensive rehabilitation of the building. Financing sources for the development included $500,000 from the HOME funding, $60,000 from the state Housing Resources Commission’s Building Homes Rhode Island (BHRI) program, a 5-year first mortgage from Rhode Island Housing ($450,000), a $70,000 loan through the Rhode Island Housing Special Needs Rental Production (SNRP) program, and $39,430 in funding from the agency’s Fire Code program. In addition to the capital funds, the Corporation for Supportive Housing provided a pre-development loan for $5,000 to finance the initial purchase of the building and pay for environmental consulting and historic consulting. Funding for the Head Start classrooms included $199,000 from The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and $35,000 from The Carter Family Charitable Trust. Those attending the ribbon-cutting were provided with tours of the classrooms and apartments.

From Dreams to Screams

East Providence author Dan Gordon grew up a Red Sox diehard in Seekonk. After college, Gordon traveled the world on a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship studying baseball culture in Japan, Cuba, Nicaragua, and the Dominican Republic. Little did he know then that his love of the game would inspire a twenty year writing career culminating in his most recent book Field of Screams: Haunted Tales from the Baseball Diamond, the Locker Room, and Beyond. The following is an excerpt on the Pfister Hotel, where visiting teams stay when they play the Milwaukee Brewers. Baseball fans might expect the most feared site in the National League to be an imposing pitcher’s park or a home-teamcontinued on page 44

being forgotten and left out?

If you are, I'd like to talk to you and ask for your support.

Why is Michael DiGioia running for City Council? "I have never run for public office. I am running now because I'm upset that all I see in city government is arguing and bickering, cost increases and service cuts. I wouldn't run my family this way. I wouldn't run the city this way. I'm asking for your support. There has to be a better way for all of us."

friendly stadium. But to hear most players tell it, the most feared site in the National League is the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee, where many visiting teams stay while in town to play the Brewers. Dozens of big-leaguers dread their overnights at the historic building, having suffered through some spooky encounters they can only explain one way. “It was haunted, man,” says Adrian Beltre. “I’m dead serious. I couldn’t sleep for three straight nights.” The sure handed Red Sox third baseman’s story is typical of many players. He stayed at the hotel in 2003 while with the Los Angeles Dodgers. “I felt some weird stuff,” he attests. For starters, there were noises. While lying in bed, Beltre heard steps as if someone were walking by him—but nobody else was in the room. He heard the sounds of someone hitting the wall. And he heard a knocking on his door. “I got up and looked out and nothing—nobody was there.” He believes the room was haunted by the ghost of a woman, because “when I went into the bathroom, there was [the smell of a] woman’s perfume.” If the imposing, 220-pound slugger’s observations are limited to noises and odors, there’s a good reason: “I didn’t see nothing because I was covered under the blanket!” he admits. “But definitely some stuff was going on. “I slept for only an hour in three days,” he recalls. “I was scared. I was real scared, but I got through it.” According to teammate Alex Cora, Beltre was so upset that the entire team was affected. “The next year we switched hotels because of him.” But Beltre was not the only Dodger dodging ghosts that night. At the ballpark the next day, several players talked about their own odd experiences, including Eric Gagne (“I heard all kinds of noises,” says the pitcher). Coach John Shelby—who had been staying at the hotel without incident since his playing career began in 1981— was shaken from his own encounter. “I’m laying down, I’m sleepy, and I reach up to turn the light off—the lamp, by my bed. I turn on my back and lay down. And I hear this deep sigh, like somebody just took a deep breath.” Shelby says the sound was low but unmistakable, and he’s certain it wasn’t just air escaping from the pillow as he lay his head down. “So my eyes are wide open now. I’m laying there. It’s dark. And now I’m real focused.” He tried to convince himself he was just hearing things. “And the next thing I know, I hear it again! And it’s right by my ear! “It was scary,” Shelby admits. “My heart was racing.” He quickly turned on the light. “I looked at my bed. Didn’t see anybody. I looked around the room. Didn’t

see anybody. “And I’ve been sleeping with the light on in the bathroom ever since when we go to the Pfister.” Upon its grand opening in 1893, the Pfister Hotel was not only opulent and luxurious, but also state of the art. It was one of the first hotels to feature electricity and thermostat controls in each room. Its twenty-foot-high ceilings were adorned with chandeliers and its walls lined with ornate designs and big-scale artwork. (Even today, the establishment claims “the largest Victorian art collection of any hotel in the world.”) The Pfister’s 196 renovation added a twenty-three-story tower (the “new wing” that baseball players say is ghost-free) but maintained a historic air. Walk in the lobby today and you step back in the nineteenth century. Even the concierge wears an old-fashioned waistcoat straight out of the 1890s. For many ballplayers, the old-time feel of the place adds to its eeriness. “When you get into that place, when you see that place, you get scared,” says veteran pitcher Jose Santiago, one of many players who switched hotels rather than stay at the Pfister. “Because it has, like, angels on the walls.” Reliever Chad Harville says the dark cedar, the heavy curtains, the dim lighting, and the solid doors all contribute to the impression that “This place is full of ghosts.” And, of course, there are the stories players love to tell about the place. Before his first trip in 004, Harville recalls that “everybody was talking about it. Everybody said, ‘Watch out for the ghosts!’ You hear the stories before you go.” Journeyman infielder Joe Randa heard that “other guys were having lights turning off, [fire] alarms going on, alarm clocks going on and stuff like that.” When Adam Eaton was pitching with the Padres, “guys claimed to have their TV turn on,” as well as computers. Pitcher Ricky Bottalico was told that “furniture has been moved around.” Such stories influence players from the minute they enter the building. "I'm kinda scared of the dark as it is," two-time Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum admits. "But when you throw those kinds of stories in 508-557-1474 there, and a creepy old building . . ." Lincecum had his own encounter at 503 winthrop Street, the Pfister. "My door was shaking at one Rt. 44 • Rehoboth, Massachusetts point in the night, like someone leaned on Indian hills plaza (next to vino's Restaurant) it and then leaned on it again. I could hear it. And I could see the door pressing." It open daily 10:00AM - 10:00pM was 4:00 a.m. Lincecum did not know what was causing the bizarre scene, but he did know one thing: "I'm not answering that door!

Instead, he flipped the door For Every Dollar Bring in this ad latch to keep any marauding spirits at bay. you spend And then he followed the time-honored and receive tradition for expelling unwanted night visireceive tors, known to little kids and professional ballplayers alike.

The 7TH annual East Providence High School Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held on Sunday, October 4, 010. A reception will start at 1 noon followed by dinner at 1:00 P.M. at the Venus DeMilo restaurant in Swansea, Massachusetts. The public at large is invited to attend. The EPHS Hall of Fame was established in 1984, the centennial anniversary year for the high school. The 010 ceremony will pay special tribute to the Hall’s founder, the late former Superintendent of Schools, Myron J. Francis, who passed away earlier this year. Long time Hall of Fame Chairman, Arthur Elmasian, also passed away recently. The Hall of Fame was formed to honor those graduates of East Providence High School for bringing honor to themselves and to the high school. It was former Superintendent Francis’ hope to also boost pride within the community and specifically the high school. The committee also acknowledges honorary graduates of EPHS for their distinction in the community.

HOME Cozy Up to Redecorating and Prepare Your Home for Indoor Entertaining (ARA) - After months of sunshine, cookouts, beach-going and outdoor entertaining, it can be a little disappointing to realize the cool bite of fall is on its way. But warding off those cold-weather blues can be as simple as redecorating a room (or a few) to create a hideaway that you can enjoy until spring arrives. With a little time and creativity, you can create a fresh space that will outlast the dreary weather of the coming months. Preparing a home for the coldest months of the year - whether you expect to host company for the holidays or to simply spend more time indoors - can seem daunting. But professional designer and television personality Danielle Hirsch says there is no need to fret. Hirsch, featured on Dutch Boy's new Restore My decorating website, says there are many ways to minimize the time and expense you might associate with refreshing your home's interior. Here are just a few of her easy and affordable tips that can help bring new life to your decor.

It might sound like a cliche, but a fresh coat of interior paint can truly do wonders to renew a space. Dutch Boy's Restore My Decor. com website features advice from Hirsch to help you decide what color and design scheme is right for your room. She also offers tips to help your project run smoothly. Gathering valuable inspirational ideas from the site will ensure your interior turns out right the first time, saving you valuable time and money. Don't stop with wall color, though. As the weather turns bleak, heat up your home design by bringing a bit of color inside. Are you conservative when it comes to design? Try accenting a neutral room with a few pieces of the same color family. If you're more daring, play with a variety of warm, bright colors. "Take cues from Mother Nature and pull colors you see from the foliage around you," Hirsch says. "Rich oranges, chocolate browns, vibrant reds and ambers - these colors bring energy as the days get darker earlier."

and flowers, colorful leaves and pinecones for quick and easy ways to bring the natural beauty of autumn indoors. "To round out your fall decorating remember that with the days getting shorter, warm lighting is essential," Hirsch says. Do a quick audit of the lighting to ensure you're making the most of your room's natural and artificial light. Introducing a new light source, whether it's a standing or table lamp, can transform the overall feel of a room and fight off the dreary gray outside your window. Hirsch goes onto say, "This fall, don't be lulled into hibernation. Take the time you have indoors and put it to good use.

Practical Upgrades Pay Off in Kitchens and Bathrooms (ARA) - Practical pays off when it comes to kitchen and bath renovations. Gone are the days when virtually every kitchen or bathroom remodel involved top-of-the-line luxury upgrades and a budget big enough to fund an Ivy League education. Today’s homeowners want more value for their remodeling dollars, and that means turning to improvements that make both functional and fiscal sense. If you’re contemplating a kitchen or bathroom remodel, here are some pointers for keeping it practical:

Be like the Swiss . . .

That is to say, stick with neutrality in both the bathroom and the kitchen. Choose neutral colors for the walls and for parts of the room that might be especially costly to change later if your taste in bold colors doesn’t play well with the preferences of potential buyers. Keep fixtures such as sinks and toilets, tiling and flooring in neutral tones and use accessories like shower curtains, towels, artwork and small appliances to put your personal color stamp on the room. continued on next page...

No matter how big your bathroom feels to you, there’s no downside in making it feel bigger. Use mirrors to make the room appear larger than it is. Wall-to-wall, counter-to-ceiling mirrors, free of frames or bevels, fit with contemporary styling and can make a modestly sized bathroom feel much larger.

Sinks play a pivotal role in the usability and desirability of both bathrooms and kitchens.

Storage is a significant issue in virtually every American home, and both homeowners and home buyers are acutely aware of how much - or how little - storage the average bathroom or kitchen has. In both rooms, adding cabinets and shelving can improve the room’s livability and practicality. Storage is so important, you may want to consider replacing a powder room pedestal sink with a modestly sized vanity. If you really want to make a storage splash in a bathroom, add a shower storage unit.

And speaking of showers . . . A great shower isn’t just a luxury, it’s a practical concern as well. Americans rely on their showers for more than just cleanliness - a shower is also a spot to relax and decompress. It pays to shell out a few more dollars for touches - like a good showerhead such as the Kohler Flipside Showerhead -- that will turn your shower space into a more welcoming experience. Shower surrounds have made it particularly easy to upgrade an existing shower. Sterling has introduced the Accord seated shower, with a seat that is movable and removable.

Scouting Around Town Hornaday Medal

Boy Scouts from Troop 55 Riverside recently spent a weekend camping at Camp Aquapog in South Kingstown. The main events of the weekend were spent on the pond canoeing, kayaking and rowing. While doing so scouts completed advancements for on the water related badges.

On September 15, 2010, Theodore Sanford Jr. (Troop 4, Riverside) was given a special award - The Hornaday Medal. This is not an easy award to earn. It requires that you earn multiple merit badges and also incorporate a special conservation project. In this case, it was an Eagle project. Ted is an Eagle Scout and his Eagle project was Scouting for Knowledge. He collected books throughout the community and redistributed them to the elderly, day care centers and local school systems. This was in addition to the five conservation theme merit badges, and you’ll see the commitment needed to earn this medal. Great job Ted!

We Share Hope

We Share Hope thanks East Providence Elks On September 1, 010, a pasta dinner fund raiser was sponsored by the East Providence Elks with the proceeds going to We Share Hope. According to Stephen Martin, President and Founder over 300 supporters were in attendance and the East Providence Elks raised $4,500.00 to help with the expense of running the organization’s vehicles. Sincere thanks and appreciation to all who donated prizes for the table raffles, food for the buffet, all business who purchased an ad on our place mat and all the East Providence Elks members who gave their time, energy, and resources over a five month period of time to make this day possible. We also wish to sincerely thank brother Elk, David Le Page for his tireless efforts, leadership and organizational abilities without which this function would not have happened. Members of the East Providence Elks have been active in the We Share Hope community for over fourteen months. They are distributing food to hundreds of needy individual and families throughout East Providence and those they serve are growing weekly. As we watch the East Providence Elks members who are giving to others we can’t help but notice their enthusiasm. For we have found that in self forgetting one finds true happiness. We Share Hope is a community of individuals who are committed to serving the common good. Their primary mission is to provide food to organizations that feed the poor, distressed, and the under privileged. At present they support over 90 agencies in Rhode Island.

Comments from The Candidates Jim Miller Visits Washington DC

On Wednesday, September nd, District 18 Senate Candidate, Jim Miller, attended the “Rhode Island Business Leaders Day” hosted by Senator Jack Reed in Washington, D.C. Speakers that were invited by Senator Reed included: Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, National Journal Correspondent Major Garrett, Congressman James Langevin, New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, Under Secretary of Defense Dr. Ashton B. Carter, Indiana Senator Richard Lugar, Director White House Office of Health Care Reform Nancy Ann-DeParle, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd. It was a very intense dialog of what is affecting us as Americans today and where we are headed in the near future. What I came away with is that there is no easy task for either federal or state officials, and it will take a lot of hard work and tough decisions on all of us to get us on this forward path. Most of us are looking for answers today, and some of the issues such as energy and health care are not easy fixes and time is something we must be aware of as much as the problems themselves. I did, however, come away with a lot of positive energy from this esteemed field of business leaders. As for the speaking program, I felt that Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner was enlightening and direct when it came to answering questions on the ability to get out of the recession, Mr. Geithner feels, as do most of us, that we are still in a recession. This opportunity to listen to and interact with Washington decision makers was one that I will not forget soon, and I can put the information gathered at this forum to good use at the state level of government. -Jim Miller

To the Concerned Citizens of East Providence,

There are a lot of good things happening in our city. There are a lot of good people here. I know this because I have lived here all my life. I was educated in our school system. And I meet them every day on the campaign trail. I am sad to see young people leaving East Providence. They are buying homes elsewhere because they cannot afford the taxes here. They are relocating their families based on their mistrust in our school system. But, I am not leaving. I am staying here to change that. My parents moved here because of their faith in this city, and the only way to restore that mentality is to change the way we do business. It is time to break up the “good ol’ boy” network in East Providence. I refuse to be a part of the back room deals that have suffocated our government for so long. We don’t have time for petty political posturing. When the new City Council is elected on November nd, we need to focus on one goal: Bring Townie Pride Back. There must be communication with the members of the minority on the Council. Currently, the minority is shut out and ignored. I pledge to be a calm and logical voice, focusing on responsible leadership and positive reinforcement. If faced with the current Proposed Budget, I would not vote to raise taxes, while also squeezing in raises for city employees. I will work with state legislators, be they Democrat, Republican or Independent, to fight for the state aid that is rightfully owed to our city. Talk is cheap. The time for action is now. If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. Sincerely, Katie J. Kleyla Candidate for City Council – Ward 1 continued on next page

I would like to thank the many citizens who took the opportunity to vote in the September 14th primary election. Through your votes and the efforts of many volunteers and supporters, my campaign was successful in securing the Democratic ballot position for the general election on Tuesday, November nd. During this past session, Rhode Island legislators sent a strong message to the business community that they are working hard to create jobs and help businesses thrive. The General Assembly passed the most significant reform to the income tax code in forty years. We took decisive action to make it easier to do business in Rhode Island by cutting government red tape. We put systems in place to improve the skills of the workforce, and streamlined the process for businesses to access capital, thereby providing funds necessary to expand and improve facilities and create jobs here in East Providence. The president of the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce described the 010 legislative session as “probably the most significant year in the last decade in terms of helping small business.” The new tax code will help companies attract and retain top-notch talent, and make the state more attractive to companies looking to remain here or locate here. My experience in the State House, working collaboratively with various stakeholders, helped to produce six laws during my first term, including laws that assisted workers with extended health coverage and benefits, upgraded the Dig Safe program for the first time in twenty years, and helped small business continue to advertise with neon lighting. With your support, I look forward to returning to the Senate to continue to work for you. I plan to submit the Full-Day Kindergarten Bill once again. It just makes sense. Hard-working parents are forced to place their children in half-day kindergarten classes, then spend lunch hours shuttling them to daycare programs, all at high cost to the families. We want better test scores from our schools; we want our students reading at grade level; we want confident young children. Let’s provide all kindergarten-age children the opportunity to improve their skills with early intervention. This may improve test results in middle and high school, and diminish the need for remedial education. To assist our working families, legislators need to work towards consolidation of certain budgetary items and services, as well as to continue to bring state spending under control without eliminating services necessary to our citizens. It will be an honor to continue to serve as your Senator and to provide East Providence residents a voice for their concerns at the state level. I respectfully ask for your support and vote in the general election on November nd. Senator Frank A. DeVall, Jr.

Cusack Announces Re-Election Bid

East Providence, RI (August 5, 010) Robert E. Cusack of East Providence announced his candidacy for a third term on the City Council representing Ward One. “It has been a pleasure to serve the people of Ward One for the past four years, and I humbly ask that my constituents support me for another term,” Cusack said. “I have listened closely to the concerns of city residents and tried my best to make the city a better place to live and work. As we all know, the past few years have been very difficult, but through the sacrifices of our employees and our taxpayers, we have managed to remain afloat financially. Yes, the Council and School Committee have asked for large sacrifices, and for the most part have achieved

October 010 The Reporter them, and understandably, this has resulted in some highly charged (and high volume) discussions at meetings. However, I am proud of the results because even in the face of unprecedented funding cuts by the state, we have produced balanced budgets. In times past, elected officials simply caved in to special interests’ demands because it was easier than fighting. Unfortunately, some fighting this time was needed to avoid insolvency. It was uncomfortable for me to insist on concessions from employees who are my own friends and neighbors, but I felt the taxpayers couldn’t be the only ones to sacrifice this time. In fact, many taxpayers feel the 3.5% tax rate increase was too much in the current recession, with Rhode Island unemployment at 1%. I think the Council has acted fairly, and has performed far better than those of other cities and towns in our state.” In 006, I promised to do my best to protect taxpayers, promote good economic development and improve our quality of life. I feel I have delivered on those promises despite the worst economic recession since the 1930s. We have held tax increases to 3.5%. We have the largest development project in the state here, the $00 million Village on the Waterfront, with Chevron as the lead partner. We have adopted ordinances to clean up excessive signage and worked with the state DOT to repair our infrastructure. I have recruited and appointed highly qualified members of our city boards and commissions. I have personally advocated for residents who needed my help interacting with city government. I hope to continue all this important work on residents’ behalf, and I ask for their help and support on election day.” Bob Cusak

Former East Providence City Councilman and Mayor Dr. Isadore S.

Dr. Ramos said he also would not accept payment of a $,00 waiver given to lawmakers who do not take health care benefits from the state. “My candidacy is all about providing a voice in the State House to represent residents of East Providence, not the interests of lobbyists, trade and professional organizations, Dr. Ramos said. “For too many years our state has suffered because the special interests have controlled the legislative process,” he added. “I promise that I will not be aligned with anyone but the taxpayers and I will speak out if I feel their interests are not being properly represented.” Dr. Ramos also served on the East Providence School Committee and was a teacher and school administrator in East Providence for many years.

Town News R.I. Resource Recovery Distributes Profit-sharing To Municipalities

More than $680K Presented to Cities and Towns for Recycling Performance

In a year when Rhode Island cities and towns saw millions in state aid slashed, Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation has provided a measure of cash relief based on the municipalities’ recycling performance. Yesterday, RIRRC divided $681,014 in profits from the sale of household recyclables to 36 eligible R.I. cities and towns. “In a difficult year when the markets were so unpredictable, we are proud to announce that we turned a profit at the Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) and now share that benefit with the municipalities who serve as our partners,” said Michael OConnell, executive director of RIRRC. “Many cities and towns improved their overall recycling rates, which helps to prolong the useful life of the Central Landfill," he said. “The check presentations made today prove that recycling is a good investment for our state, our hometowns and our state’s environment.” Profit-sharing checks averaged $18,917. Shares are based on each municipality’s recycled tonnage brought to the MRF in Johnston during fiscal year 010. Recycling rates are computed as the percentage of recycling waste processed at the MRF compared with the amount of the municipalities’ waste sent to the Central Landfill for burial. The recycling rates and profit-sharing amounts among eligible local municipalities were as follows: Municipality FY10 MRF Recycling Rate Profit Share Barrington 7% $17,169 Warren 4% $9,516 East Providence 3% $35,041 Bristol 16% $11,15 Pawtucket 14% $30,91 Providence 13% $75,1

The Easiest Way To REACH EVERYBoDY In East providence!

Providence should be noted for its jump from 10 percent to 13 percent in just six months by enacting a “no bin, no barrel” effort, called Green Up Providence. Despite challenges posed by multilingual and multi-family housing obstacles, the city is on track to achieve a 0 percent recycling rate in FY11. “Nearly two-thirds of Providence households are multi-family and they have the added burden of needing to constantly reeducate residents due to the ever-changing population and demographics,” said OConnell. “Their grassroots efforts included educational materials in Spanish and English, Q&A meetings, the involvement of community groups, and ensuring that all households had access to recycling bins and collections. This is one of the best success stories of the year.” When the Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) owned by the quasi-public agency earns profits, they can distribute them to municipalities that have recycling contracts with RIRRC. Located in Johnston, R.I., Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation is the quasi-state environmental agency that manages nearly all of the state’s municipal and commercial solid waste. RIRRC owns and operates a materials recycling facility, which processes more than 92,000 tons of recyclables annually, and the Central Landfill, which disposes approximately750,000 tons of solid waste annually.

(l to r) RIRRC Chairman Douglas Jeffrey; RIRRC Vice Chairman Geri-Ann DiPaolo; North Providence Mayor and RIRRC board member Charles Lombardi; East Providence Recycling Coordinator Steve Mutter; and Michael OConnell, executive director of RIRRC. Mutter accepted RIRRC’s profit-sharing check of $35,041 for East Providence’s recycling performance last year.

For several years now volunteers at the center have been collecting, clipping, and sorting coupons to send to our troops and their families overseas. This has been a rewarding endeavor for everyone involved. This month we surpassed the one millionth dollar mark. This is certainly a great milestone and accomplishment. The goal is providing coupons to military families stationed overseas. The prices in overseas commissaries are significantly higher than those in the States and military families do not always have access to coupons in newspapers and inserts. Military commissaries overseas accept coupons up to six months past the expiration date.

Military Commissaries accept manufacturer coupons as well as Internet printed coupons. The Commissary is a grocery store so only “grocery” coupons are needed. Families cannot use store specific coupons. Excerpts from thank you letters sent to us: On behalf of the entire Camp Zama Commissary, I would like to extend to you the warmest of THANK YOU for your support of our most valued National Treasure, The Men and Women of the American Armed Forces. The time spent cutting coupons and mailing them here to the camp Zama Commissary is priceless. We look forward to the mail coming in every day to see your wonderful coupons you have provided. I know how time consuming it is to clip, cut, and send out the coupons and that is why we send our biggest Thank You for all your hard work and efforts to provide World Class Customer Service Savings. When we receive the coupons, we have some employees prepackage them in sandwich zip lock bags and leave them for our patrons to take at our coupon center. These coupons do bring smiles to our patron’s faces when they realize how much they save in the end. I, myself who is a military spouse take advantage of the coupons and appreciate the time given to provide our servicemen, women, civilians, and their families members stationed overseas an opportunity to save.

Wanted Coupons “Making a Difference’

We ask all to bring in clipped coupons found in the Sunday newspaper and maybe we can make a difference. They are distributed to the spouses and children of troops who sometimes struggle to make ends meet on military salaries.


Cell Phone Recycling

The center is collecting used or discarded cell phones. Most phones end up in kitchen drawers collecting dust. By partnering with Cellular Recycler, we have developed a way to make the most of used cell phones. A box is in the administration office for depositing the cell phones. We thank you in advance. The phones will either be recycled for their precious metals according to EPA standards or be refurbished for use in developing countries. The memory of each phone is “flashed� to wipe out any previous information stored on the cell phone.

Scam Warning

Senior Medicare Patrol received a second report about someone calling individuals who are diabetic about their supplies and they state they are from Medicare. The first report was about getting a new monitor; this second call was about replacing faulty equipment. The phone numbers use area code 414, the most recent number being 414-755-4720 - which of course does not work when you call it. It is suspected that these calls are originating from Canada. You should never give out personal information to Someone who calls. The Government will not and does not call for this or any other personal information.
