Gerry Horne what I think you are missing is that the fine is $525 for something that cost 89 cents.Read More That's what is disgusting. The rent a cop could have given him a warning and let him pay the freaking 89 cents. Then if he was caught again then taken it to the next level. Now this guy has a huge fine and can no longer work at his job site. All of this for a freaking soda...unbelievable!!!! OUTRAGEOUS!!!

We never forget CB . You do not know me but my family is well known for having had to fight theseRead More murderers dating back well over 1000 years with even my father who worked for the US Gov having to fight these terrorists also in many parts of the global all for their 7th century Jihadist ways . It's very refreshing to see some who refuse to take anymore from these scumbags and I will thank all who read my 2 cents and tossed a quarter back . Cheers from here .

oh I forgot to add my dad was fighting these terrorists around the world back in the early 1930's .Read More He came up with a way to make them stop the terrorism . His cure to this was putting the dead terrorists in a wooden box . Put the male sex organ and a pigs foot / hamhock in their mouths with the blood pig entrails all over them and deliver said box to their mothers . This sent a message and actually stopped terrorism but in this world of PC / Political Correctness my dad's old methods are not allowed now sorry to say . Take care cause we care .

What Rhode Islanders Can Do to protect ourselves about zebras. WE MUST INTRODUCE LEGISLATION NOWRead More As of early 1993 (4), no zebra mussels have been found in Rhode Island waters. However, zebra mussels have rapidly expanded their range and are predicted to invade New England waters. Ultimately, zebra mussels will infest most regions of North America. They could threaten local water supplies and become a costly nuisance to boaters, anglers, and industries. It is possible to slow the spread of zebra mussels into New England waters by becoming aware of how these mussels disperse themselves through human activities. Boaters or anglers may inadvertently transport zebra mussels from infested freshwater bodies to noninfested lakes and rivers. In an effort to control zebra mussels from spreading to Rhode Island waters, take the following precautions after boating or fishing in infested waters: 1. INSPECT and CLEAN any zebra mussels and aquatic vegetation from the boat hull, trailer, anchor, anchor rope or chain, and motor. If you see any "hitchhiking" zebra mussels, scrape them off and discard in a trash can. 2. DRAIN all water from the boat and its components. Before leaving the infested area, drain bilge water, live wells, bait buckets, and engine cooling water. 3. DRY the boat, trailer, and equipment. Allow the boat and trailer to dry thoroughly in the sun before transporting to noninfested waters. If it is hot and dry, leaving the boat out of the water for two to four days will effectively kill the mussels. 4. LEAVE any live bait behind. Bait used in infested waters should not be transported to noninfested waters. Give the bait to someone headed out on the body of water you are leaving, or discard at the boat launch.
