GoLocalProv: Stop Blaming Immigrants for your Problems

“…We live in a time of stress, confusion, and frustration. It is hard to find a job. It is hard to make sense of all the changes in our world. However, that frustration is no reason to blame people of different skin for a crisis brought on by wealthy bankers and neglectful regulators, to blame immigrants for a local budget crisis created by politicians down the street, or to deny the right to citizenship to those born here.”

College Hill looking south from across the Providence River.

Shot these photos the other day after penning a strategy for the beautification of Providence that ran last Monday, Nov. 10, at GoLocalProv.com (where I now do a weekly column). The basic thrust of the plan requires the demolition of the city’s 10 most obnoxious buildings. These include the Rubik’s Cube and RISD’s Chace Center, which…

Providence Police Chief Might Be Resigning...

…because of an underage drinking scandal at his house?

I love that GoLocalProv caught it first! Their exclusive story says:

The graduation party at Providence Police Chief Col. Dean Esserman’s East Side home that included underage drinking was promoted on Facebook as a celebration that would not be interrupted by police, GoLocalProv has exclusively learned.

In a Facebook message sent two days before the party, Esserman’s daughter told other high school students on the invite list to bring their own drinks and marijuana, and promised drinking games that would be taking place both inside and outside the house.

“The party starts at noon, but that is mostly family and my parent’s friends,” the message reads. “Everyone can start to come through around 730/8. Bring whoever, just let me know. Bring your own drinks and bud (slang for marijuana) for the night, and there will be plenty of food if you want to eat. Cops won’t bother us so we don’t need to worry about that. Not like my last party, im flying to XXXXX the next day. Bon fire, pong (inside and out). I’ll also have the Bruins game on”

And they totally have the screen grab to prove it.

Esserman claims he attempted to shut the party down when he ‘smelled alcohol on a cup,’ but if his daughter was so sure the police wouldn’t bother her, I doubt it. This is all so Rhode Island and I love it. For the full story on GoLocalProv.com click here.

Bieber Spotted In Providence! Oh Wait.

Some confusion erupted today in Providence when a bus with the word ‘Bieber’ on the side was parked in the Courtyard Marriott downtown. But was it actually the Biebs? Nope! Instead, it was merely a bus from company called Carl Bieber Tourways. 

Apparently the bus has inspired a bunch of confusion before, including making teenage girls (and stubborn mothers) mad because they thought the bus drivers were covering for the real Biebs! Bahaha. For the full story, click here!
