'INCH BY INCH'
By Bob Houghtaling
The great Pete Seeger recently passed away. For a few days following his death I listened to just about everything he sang that was available. He was by no means a perfect human being.

The words “Inch by inch, row by row,” reflect the feelings I have about how we educate and care for our nation’s children. From time to time there are those who wish to skip a few steps in the process. That is a shame when considering something so important. CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE THE FULL ARTICLE

On August 10th, 2012 our community lost a beautiful human being. Don and his wife Barbara started the Academy Foundation to help children and fight for affordable housing here in East Greenwich. Below is a nice article about Don by Elizabeth McNamara of East Greenwich Patch.
Farewell, Donald. Rest in Peace.
