  1. Airport to open link to rental cars, trains next month The new train station and rental-car hub attached to T.F. Green Airport via a sky bridge will open on Oct. 27. Dubbed the InterLink, the new hub is intended to make travel easier by linking airline passengers with easy access to rental cars, bus transportation and commuter trains. http://www.projo.com/news/content/WARWICK_INTERLINK_OPENING_09-22-10_10K0CU5_v11.1d09d55.html

  4. T.F. Green air-rail link attractive to developer. Local developer Joe Piscopio, who owns the Hilton Garden Inn next door to the old Rhode Island Malleable Iron Works at the corner of Jefferson Boulevard and Kilvert Street, is in the process of renovating the building with the intent of opening it next month as an upscale restaurant with entrees cooked on a wood-fired grill and an atmosphere that will strongly reflect the building

  6. Video aims to share the joys of Providence.
  7. Yes indeed. However, Pitt didn't exactly play their best game last night. Way too many turnovers. But we'll take the win just the same.
  8. John Ghiorse Announces Retirement John Ghiorse has been a "factor" in Southern New England weather forecasting for more than 40 years. He was the first television meteorologist in Providence when he joined NBC 10 in 1968. John left the station in 1983, but he returned to Storm Team 10 in 1998. His trademark "Ghiorse Factor" has been a popular part of his weathercasts for decades. John has announced his retirement. His last day will be Feb. 27. http://www.turnto10.com/jar/weather/john_ghiorse
  9. Hey, when I try to log unto the forum main page I'm gettin a blank screen for the last couple of weeks. Is it just me or is there something going on.
  10. President-elect Barack Obama is urging Congress to postpone the Feb. 17 switch from analog to digital television broadcasting, arguing that too many Americans who rely on analog TV sets to pick up over-the-air channels won't be ready.
  11. A $267-million project under way to link T.F. Green Airport in Warwick with the commuter rail lines to Boston, Providence and Wickford Junction could face another hurdle if voters fail to approve Question 1 on the ballot Tuesday.

  14. Anyone hear about the drunk last week who broke all state records and come in and blew a .491? Well yesterday I came in at a close second, and blew .387.
  15. Been there, done that. Nice video. But there's nothing like experiencing Montreal at 3am on St. Catherine St. when all the bars let out. I've never seen anthing quite like it.
  16. You know what I just recently found out about posting obits @ projo. You actually have to pay them $ 2/300 to print your loved one's obit. I never knew that. Pic or no pic. I think that this should be a free service to the public and a nice corporate gesture. Funeral expensives are enough for grieving families members. But I'm inclined to believe that this is a relatively new deal as I don't remember this being an issue when I was a child and older family members were dropping. What a shame. What the hell do family members do, whom basically have little or nothing, do when a family member leaves this rock for the next life?
  17. Jim, I'm not awhere of this. Like I said, I can remember motorist paying more for using a credit card, as opposed to using cash. Jim, this is the way it was in the 80's, 90's. Don't you remember. I can't beleive that news reporters are just remembering it now.
  18. OK Bil, point well taken. I never knew about the 2.5 - 3 % credit charge that banks and other financial institutions charge on merchants and customers untill I had to pick up, oddly enough, the daily receipts @ the Barnsider Mile 1/4, as a security personal officer making a delivery to the bank to make the daily deposit. And if many of you young members remember, the cost of gas in those days costs more if you payed for it with a credit card. They are just bringing this back to liFe now, as the present Attoney General realizes this. I can't believe that we forgot about all thoght. And I'll tell you all one thing or two. If you had even been in that basement where all the food was stored you'd have never eaten there. Trust me on that. Besides the Barnsider I also collected at Coholes from CT. I've walked out there sometimes with $ 45,000. By the way that's one's day's receipct. I use to walk between the rows of clothing to mask my escape.
  19. Well, I thought it may be illegal since it's against the law ( isn't it ) for the illegal disposal of a body? I'm not saying that this act was illegal, and definately not an illegal disposal of a body, but come on Jim, didn't this act leave just a bitter taste in your mouth? Would you have accompanied this event? This was in bad taste, to be sure. But I have to admit, if the widow/family didn't disapprove, then so be it. As long as they didn't stop into Tim Horton's for the wake/funeral.
  20. I guess this is just totally off topic This is really weird, even for theAnk. But I have to wonder if it's even legal. UPS driver gets special, final delivery http://www.boston.com/news/odd/articles/20...elivery?mode=PF
