The exciting on-line news source is to be thanked for their wonderful use of photos and the language used and the constant reporting."

Block said that the ethics of Rhode Island politics needs to change and cited contributions that Raimondo, Fung, and Taveras made to Fox, as well as Raimondo and Taveras walking with Fox in his district while allegations of pay-to-play, corruption within the 38 Studios deal, and PEDP Loans were all taking place as evidence of ethical issues in the state.
In addition to calling out the other candidates for their relationships with Fox, Block called out Fung specifically by pointing out his accepted contributions from leaders of the Cranston Police Union, saying that these contributions were unacceptable.
"As Governor I will not accept any contributions from anyone who will be negotiating directly with the Governor's office," said Block. "Rhode Islanders deserve better than that and need to be able to have complete faith that their elected officials are acting solely in the best interests of their constituents."

I am going to start this post by getting right to the heart of the matter concerning the weather and snow conditions…we are now entering a period that could end up being the snowiest week of the season across the Northeast, and you should be making your plans to head for the hills. This week is getting underway with a narrow stripe of moderate to heavy snow across the northern Mid-Atlantic States, metro New York and southern New England. Anywhere from 4 to as much as 8 inches of snow will fall today (Monday), with Long Island and central New Jersey the sweet spot for the highest amounts. Now, that sort of distribution of snow only benefits a handful of ski areas, but I think this storm is only the appetizer…the main course and desert are on the way over the next 7 days. By this time next week, resorts from northern New Jersey to Maine will have anywhere from 18 to as much as 30 inches of new snow for you to play on.
