    PROVIDENCE - Tolls on the Sakonnet River Bridge were rejected by popular demand, but a proposed toll on Interstate 95 near the Connecticut border had less opposition. Any toll would need federal government approval, and Rhode Island Public Radio's Ian Donnis asked the Democrats running for governor what they thought of the idea during an NBC 10 live debate Wednesday. "Yes. I think people deserve a straightforward answer. This state should be looking in comprehensive ways," Pell said. Providence Mayor Angel Taveras said he does not support adding a toll on I-95. "It's a regressive tax that has an impact...

    Today there will be both celebration and alarm, joy and gnashing of teeth. Any informed American knows the dangers that threaten our country, and I'll forgo a litany of the unlawfulness and destructiveness that has characterized the last six years. Rather, I'd like to remind everyone of the little events in history that shaped us---and which came very close to either not occurring at all or to turning out much differently than expected. Some will call this providence, others, "good luck," and still others will claim that America made her own luck. Whichever your interpretation, meditate for a moment on...

    Buddy Cianci (see-AN'-see) served two stints as mayor of Rhode Island's capital city, and both ended in felony convictions. Now he may try for a third. Cianci's charisma and shenanigans put him and Providence in the national spotlight - for good and ill - during his 21 years at the city's helm. He says he's leaning toward running again, 12 years after his conviction in a federal investigation into widespread corruption in his administration. Cianci says if he were mayor again, he could use his personality and experience to inject excitement back into the city. The mere discussion of a...

    Adversity by Terry Johnson Background Reading: Romans 8:26-39; Genesis 50:15-21 In 1858, a gifted young Presbyterian missionary named John G. Paton sailed with his wife and infant son to the New Hebrides in the South Pacific to begin missionary work among the islanders. Within a few months of arrival, both his infant son and his wife had died, leaving him to labor alone. In August 1876, a gifted young theologian names Benjamin Breckinridge Warfield and his bride were honeymooning in Germany. While sightseeing in the Black Forest region, they were suddenly caught in a severe storm, and something that was...
  • 24 Years Later, Providence Man Confesses to Murder — of the Wrong Target

    Providence Journal ^ | December 27, 2013 | Amanda Milkovits
    A homeless man told the police on Friday that his conscience drove him to reveal something he’d kept secret — that he’d beaten a man to death in South Providence 24 years ago. By nightfall, Daniel Serrano, 65, was charged with the murder of 32-year-old Michael Holliday — a man he said he didn’t intend to kill, Maj. David Lapatin said. “He claims he was feeling very guilty about it,” the police major added. A workman discovered Holliday’s body in a vacant third-floor apartment at 27 Somerset St. on Feb. 24, 1990. The man had been beaten to death. He...

    Southern Baptist Theological Seminary ^ | Unknown | Roger Ellsworth
    God’s Strange Providence David stood waiting and watching by the stone Ezel. It was his stone of destiny. His dear friend Jonathan was to determine whether King Saul still harbored murderous intentions toward David. If so, David would have to flee. If not, he would be able to return to normal living. David and Jonathan had agreed upon a signal. If it were safe for him to return, Jonathan would shoot three arrows and cry to the lad with him, “Look, the arrows are on this side of you; get them and come…” (v. 21). But if Saul still harbored...

    Ligonier ^ | 8/16/13
    God’s decretive will is sometimes described as the sovereign, efficacious will by which God brings to pass whatever He pleases by His divine decree. An example of this may be seen in God’s work of creation. When God said, “Let there be light” (Gen. 1:3), He issued a divine imperative. He exercised His sovereign, efficacious will. When He did so, it was impossible for the light not to appear. It appeared by the sheer necessity of consequence.The decretive will can have no other effect, no other consequence than what God sovereignly commands. He did not request the light to shine. Neither...

    Torah Thoughts for Today ^ | 8/13/'13 | Rabbi Yitschak Rudomin
    Teitzei means “to go out” in Hebrew. It is in the book of Devarim (Deuteronomy 21:10 – 23:26). What many do not realize or appreciate is that the Torah is based on connecting principles. Not just that, but that the world is based on connecting principles, and that ultimately God Himself, so to speak is consistent and runs the universe consistently based on connecting principles. Thus, is something at some point seems disconnected or dissonant at any given point in time, it will be redressed and reconnected and the final consequence will be such that not matter what seemed out...

    What is striking in this history is the manifest hand of providence in the work of redemption. God is a God of long-range planning. He does not succumb to the all-too-human tendency toward immediate gratification and short-term goals. God sees the end from the beginning and rules the course of history, moving it inexorably toward its appointed destiny. In the affairs of the life of Abraham, God was providentially directing history toward David’s kingship and far beyond to the kingship of Christ. The genealogies show that the first advent of Christ was not an afterthought in God’s mind, a sudden...

    The New Jersey Attorney General has indicted fifteen defendants for their alleged roles in a multi-million dollar heroin trafficking ring which supplied wholesalers throughout the northeast as reported by Christopher Baxter for The Star-Ledger. The accused ringleader is Dominican national Segundo Garcia who illegally re-entered the United States following his deportation on a drug conviction according to authorities. Dominican drug trafficking organizations -- both in the Dominican Republic and in North America -- increasingly have been appearing on law enforcement's radar screen for their involvement as distributors for the Mexican drug cartels. Last summer the feds busted 11 suspects in...

Initially, from Habakkuk’s perspective, he did not see God’s hand in the suffering of his people. Where was the Judge of all the earth during this time of injustice, he wondered. Here Dr. Sproul explains how God’s providence and suffering go hand and hand.

    Providence, RI - Rhode Island State Police say that the shooting death of a woman's Pit bull, "Champ" was an "unfortunate accident". Accident or not, a beloved family companion is dead. The tragedy happened on Wednesday morning when a fugitive task force was stationed outside of a home in Providence. Though the task force was waiting for a fugitive to emerge, they were instead greeted by two dogs who had been let out for a potty break. Moments after the dogs were let outside, shots were fired. The officer who fired the three shots told the dog's owner that the...

    The Big East's football expansion plans leave the conference with 17 universities, including non-Football members. That's a terrible number for scheduling; the only way the basketball teams can schedule an even number of games is if they play every other team only once. 18 teams would allow three divisions of six teams each. Any team would play the other five teams in its division twice, and one half of the twelve other teams in the conference. 18 sounds like worsening the problem of too many teams, but having three divisions could actually restore some rivalries, and return the conference to...

    “A miracle is a violation of the laws of nature; and as a firm and unalterable experience has established these laws, the proof against a miracle, from the very nature of the fact, is as entire as any argument from experience can possibly be imagined” (David Hume). That quote, taken from the Scottish philosopher David Hume, would summarize what the average person believes about miracles. Miracles are impossible because they violate laws of nature, and the very nature of these laws dictates that they are inviolable. Certainly in discussing the Christian faith with unbelievers the Christian evangelist often encounters this...

    Rush Move Sparks WPRO-A/Providence Lineup Shuffle Buddy's Back As expected and tipped yesterday on ALL ACCESS, the move of RUSH LIMBAUGH in PROVIDENCE from CITADEL Talk WPRO-A to CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WHJJ-A has opened a slot for former PROVIDENCE Mayor BUDDY CIANCI at WPRO, but it's also prompted a shuffle in assignments for a pair of existing WPRO personalities, as morning host RON ST. PIERRE joins CIANCI for 10a-2p and present middayer JOHN DEPETRO moves up to mornings 6-10a as host of the "WPRO MORNING NEWS." Afternoon host DAN YORKE moves up an hour to 2-6p.

    Toward Tradition ^ | 4/14/'07 | Rabbi Daniel Lapin
    It is the period of Holocaust Remembrance Day or Yom HaShoah—the Day of the Holocaust. In Israel, traffic comes to a halt for two minutes of respectful silence. In America, the day is observed by many Jewish communities as the dead are mourned. But for some, the Holocaust challenges faith. Anyone who believes in the God of Abraham, has only two choices when contemplating the Holocaust: (1) God was powerless to stop evil men from perpetrating the Holocaust and therefore allowed this unspeakable calamity to occur; or (2) He made it happen. Nobody with faith can adopt the first explanation....

    Boston Herald ^ | 2/8/07 | Jessica Heslam
    Controversial gabster John DePetro blew it in Boston - one of the top radio markets in the country - but has landed a new job at a Rhode Island radio station. DePetro’s new morning talk show on WPRO-AM in Providence debuts Wednesday. The station wanted him so badly they fired host Dave Barber after a mere 10 months on the job. Boston’s WRKO-AM axed DePetro in November after he called gubernatorial candidate Grace Ross a “fat lesbian” on the air. In July, DePetro was suspended for two days and forced to apologize for calling ex-Turnpike boss Matt Amorello a “fag.”...

    Book: Through Blood and Fire ^ | Dec 27, 2006 | LibertyBelt
    Can any good brothers from Maine or Alabama confirm to me the source of this quote, said to be found in a book written by Joshua Chamberlain. An Amazon review says this is found on page 21 in the book, but a search of other internet links does not mention this letter as much as one would imagine. Here is the Amazon quote/review: A letter written to Chamberlain...by a Confederate combatant of the 15th Alabama Regiment which assaulted Little Round Top on July 2...is astonishing(p.21).The former rebel soldier simply states that he COULD HAVE SHOT CHAMBERLAIN TWICE during the battle...

    Stop The ACLU ^ | 2-Dec-06 | John Stephenson
    Another typical race card, pro-illegal immigration over-reaction by the ACLU. The American Civil Liberties Union has sued the State Police seeking the release of a videotape that shows a traffic stop involving illegal immigrants. The videotape shows the first five minutes of a 70-minute stop on Interstate 95 in July by a trooper who pulled over a van with 14 Guatemalan immigrants after the driver failed to use a turn signal. Trooper Thomas Chabot detained the 14 people and brought them to Immigration and Customs Enforcement headquarters in Providence, where they now face deportation. An internal investigation reported that Chabot...

    "He holds all creation together." Col. 1:17 "He sustains the universe by the mighty power of His command!" Hebrews 1:3 Jesus Christ upholds, preserves, and governs the worlds which He has made! Thus all creatures, from the smallest insect which is seen by the microscope; up to the archangel which worships before the eternal throne; all events, from the falling of a hair of the head to the destruction of nations by famine, pestilence, and war; all rule and authority, from that of a petty official, to that of thrones and principalities in heaven; the material universe, from the least...

    HUMAN EVENTS ^ | Apr 03, 2006 | James C. Roberts
    A common and false impression about America’s Founding Fathers is that they were deists -- that is, they believed in a "watchmaker" God who set the universe in motion and then stepped aside to let it run itself. The deist god lacks the interest, or the power, to intervene in human affairs. Michael Novak, a celebrated theologian and author, convincingly rebutted this misconception in his book, "On Two Wings: Humble Faith and Common Sense at the American Founding." In "Washington's God," Novak and his daughter Jana turn their attention to the religious beliefs of America's first and greatest President. The...
