Tuesday: Do You Know the Answer to Better Business Policy?
Five things to keep in mind to ensure a terrific Tuesday on Oct. 23 in Tiverton and Little Compton.
Weather: The day will start off sunny, but the afternoon will bring in a chance of showers that will increase into the evening, according to the National Weather Service.
1. Participate in Tiverton's future. Join the Planning Department tonight at the Community Center at 6 p.m. and share your thoughts on the development of the North Main Road commercial district.
The public workshop is an opportunity for residents to participate in the process as Tiverton prepares for a massive zoning overhaul geared toward attracting new business.
2. Show your support for breast cancer survivors alongside Tiverton and Little Compton's public safety personnel.
All week the Little Compton Fire Depatment and Tiverton Fire Departments will be wearing pink as their police department counterparts sport pink ribbons in solidarity with the victims and survivors of one of the world's most prevalent cancers.
3. Check, check, check, is this thing on? Head down to Sandywoods Farm tonight and find out. Tonight is the first open mic night, hosted by Christopher James Farias.
Admission is free, but donations for the evening's featured artist and the other musicians are much appreciated. There will be gourmet coffee from Coastal Roasters for sale!
4. Forget the name Lance Armstrong, the records books certainly will. The world's best-known cyclist was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles yesterda, lost all of his results since 1998, risks losing his 2000 bronze medal and was banned from the sport for life after for his involvement in massive doping program that tainted all of his races since 1998 was upheld on Monday, reported ESPN.
5. According to History.com, Chicago—one of history's most prolific rock bands—has its first #1 hit on October 23, 1976, with "If You Leave Me Now."
The rock band Chicago churned out full-length albums at a rate that's never been surpassed by a pop group of their stature. Not only did the group release nine albums in their first seven years of existence (1969-75), but among those nine releases were four double albums and one quadruple album, Chicago at Carnegie Hall (1971). That's 16 LPs in seven years, all of them selling at an incredible rate, which means that in terms of sheer tonnage, Chicago probably shipped more vinyl than any other American rock band in the 1970s. It was a feat made all the more incredible by the fact that the members of Chicago could have walked through O'Hare Airport at the height of their success without attracting so much as a single screaming fan.
