Mentoring Ocean-State July 24, 2014 at 04:42 pm
There is a solution to the state of education in Rhode Island. It is quite apparent that we are notRead More meeting standards and that our children are in need of more support when it comes to their educational success. So where is this support going to come from? As you have quoted in your article, Rhode Island Ranked in Bottom Half of Country in 'Kids Count' Report, "The fact that more Rhode Island children are living in families without a full-time employed parent shows that the negative economic impacts of the recession continue to be felt among Rhode Island families." This idea of economic distress has plagued us for some time now, even with the slight decrease in unemployment rates, we are still not setting up our children and our future for success. I want to call to attention the success of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ocean State. Our continued mentoring efforts pair successful, dedicated mentors with boys and girls throughout Rhode Island between the ages of 7-15. This year alone, 100% of the boys and girls in our mentoring program that have successfully completed the program and are now high school seniors, graduated, most of whom graduated top of their field and class. Not only does having a mentor increase a child’s success but it minimizes the stress that comes along with having parents who are not gainfully employed. It gives the child an opportunity to get out of that everyday environment and allows them to live and experience something they normally wouldn’t have. They are given an opportunity to grow a new professional network and gain new and useful life skills they may not have had without their mentor. The organization proves that taking the 6-8 hours a month to enrich the life of a young person really works and is incredibly effective. Looking to the future of the organization, we are seeing more and more educational success each year. Next year the numbers of boys and girls who will be graduating seniors will grow considerably and they will all be set for success because of their mentor. In reality, this is the answer to our educational prayers. It is a proven method to ensure the success of our future. This is the time, now more than ever, for the men and women of Rhode Island to step up and become the change that these children and our state desperately needs. Sincerely, George Evans Marley Community Outreach Specialist Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ocean State

I became a blood donor by accident. I was called for jury duty last year. As you know you have toRead More sit around and wait for your name to be called for a trial. While we were all waiting the jury attendant entered the room and announced that the mobile blood center just arrived. He said, " If you donate we will look very favorable upon you." I bolted out of my chair, ran down 4 flights of stairs , and got in line. My thinking was anything is better than sitting around another day waiting to be called for a trial. I was amazed at how fast and easy it was to donate blood. AND the jury attendant released me from jury duty for the next 3 years!! I've been donating blood every two months since that wonderful day I was released from jury duty...

Bill the 1st July 16, 2014 at 08:24 pm
Dphs18, are you running for office? There were lots of uncontested races in this State. Nothing willRead More change unless there is a real grassroots initiative to rally the troops and field candidates. Problem is, it has become generational. On the daytime baby-daddy shows, the 42 year-old grandmother who had a kid at 15 is there with the 27 year-old mother to confront the 13 year-old kid because she's sleeping around and pregnant. The masses in this State are the trashy, selfish, idiots who elect the Dem. GA because their trashy, selfish, idiot parents did. And the parents do it because their parents did it. The sad thing is that all this was born of real, genuine hardship and deplorable working conditions, and outright abuse of the least fortunate. And it was born from the heroes who faced evil in World War II. And it was born of the innovators who revolutionized the World with technology. Oh, how far we've fallen.

The state of Rhode Island will benefit if either Block or Fung make it to office: a necessary stepRead More to offset the GA's recklessness. I agree with Bill that we need new candidates to challenge the incompetency in our State "Leadership" but there seems to be a defeatist attitude in the voters in that we keep elected the last guy to continue us on our path to ruin...what we need to do is encourage people run against the seated officials, and when there is a challenger to VOTE FOR ANYONE BUT THE LAST ONE. Hopefully, this will encourage change and to show the seating officials they can lose and that new ideas and different leadership can win.
