“The roaring wind toppled forests in every New England state, with New Hampshire and Massachusetts (east of the eye of the storm) hit particularly hard. The path of destruction spanned ninety miles across....’’ And “70 percent or more of the toppled timber was Pinus strobus – eastern white pine’’ – the most valuable (and vulnerable) tree crop in New England because of its height, straightness and its many uses, from lumber to make houses, to furniture to cheap shipping boxes.
...the State of Rhode Island, with an emphasis on the social values & attitudes its citizens hold in such high regard.
"If you happen to spot a 4-foot tall, gray bird this winter, you’re not alone in thinking that it looks out of place. A lone sandhill crane has spent the entire winter in fields around Seapowet Marsh, and the bird has drawn considerable attention from birdwatchers and other sharp-eyed observers."
Eroding marsh cause for concern
"Whether fishing on our own or alongside some of the most talented anglers in the Northeast, the staff at On The Water has racked up quite a few hours of fishing experience. Along the way, we’ve learned a thing or two so we started making a list of some tricks and tips that make fishing more productive and more fun. Here are ten of our favorites."
Here’s a brief look at tenant farming in the Federalist Era: Owning land
Wealthy local families leased the property to tenant farmers, who paid rent with their farm products. Excess food and goods were sold to save money, in hopes of eventually buying land of their own. Land ownership, for men at least, came with certain rights and privileges, such as voting.
With change creeping in all around us, we’d like to get a sense of what we all value, and what is ‘magic’ about Little Compton.”
A piece of federal legislation that would give up federal control of 155 square miles of Long Island Sound and assign it to nearby states is a short-sighted, environmentally unwise move that would hurt Connecticut's fishing industry. The area in question is near Block Island, between Montauk, N.Y., and Point Judith, R.I. At the moment, these are federal waters, where federal fishing rules apply. The bill being considered, introduced by a New York congressman, would give control of the area to New York and Rhode Island.
Rhode Island could beat the crap out of it in a war. THAT'S how small it is.”
...let us pardon reciprocally each other's folly - that is the first law of nature.
True, we [lawyers] build no bridges. We raise no towers. We construct no engines. We paint no pictures—unless as amateurs for our own principal amusement. There is little of all that we do which the eye of man can see. But we smooth out difficulties; we relieve stress; we correct mistakes; we take up other men's burdens and by our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state.
The headwaters of Flint’s crisis are not located in the realm of technical errors; rather, there are harder questions about governance and accountability in some of America’s most vulnerable places. Who controls policy and why? How does the public check those who govern in its name?
Why is construction starting on a wind farm off Block Island, R.I., while, despite 14 years of effort by Cape Wind developer Jim Gordon, nothing has gone up in Nantucket Sound? And that's even with the Block Island project, Deepwater Wind, about three miles offshore while Cape Wind would be more than five miles offshore -- thus usually out of sight from land in this hazy and windy region. Well, yes, the Block Island project is much smaller
