A panel from the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council met Tuesday to discuss its review of the potential access point, which would open up a nearly two-mile barrier beach that's currently blocked off to the general public.

The Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council Rights-of-way Subcommittee will meet Tuesday about a contested path to the shore in Westerly that’s become emblematic of the debate over shoreline access in the Ocean State.

If the path is designated public, it would open a long-closed gateway to one of the most inaccessible, undeveloped beaches in the state.

Rhode Island Gov. Dan McKee on Thursday unveiled a $13.7 billion budget for 2023-24 that his administration touts as a way to boost incomes, improve student performance, and make the state healthier.

Among other things, the budget proposal includes $100 million in tax relief, fulfills a vow by McKee to expand abortion coverage to cover state employees and women on Medicaid, and adds staff to support Rhode Island’s effort to confront a lack of affordable housing.

Arrest of Fall River cop raises questions about a fatal police shooting from his past

In November, Fall River police officer Nicholas Hoar appeared in federal court to deny charges of filing false reports that allegedly covered up a beating he gave to a suspect outside the city’s police station.

It was not the first time Hoar has been accused of excessive force. Since following his brother into the department in 2016, Hoar, a fifth-generation Fall River policeman, had been exonerated by local authorities in five other excessive force investigations, until a suspect brought this latest complaint to the FBI.

Now, as the federal case triggers a closer examination of Hoar’s credibility, one family is hoping the FBI will investigate another case from Hoar’s past: the fatal shooting of 19-year-old Larry Ruiz Barreto.

A family is calling for the re-investigation of a fatal police shooting after the officer involved was recently charged with filing false reports in another case.

Political Roundtable: Ranney on Covid, RI’s hospital landscape, gun violence & more

COVID is bouncing back. We’re all tired of the pandemic, but the XBB.1.5 variant doesn’t care. This highly infectious bug is surging across the US, including in Rhode Island, where the number of COVID cases is spiking. So why does this matter, and where do things go from here?

Today on Political Roundtable, Ian Donnis speaks with Dr. Megan Ranney, an emergency physician at Rhode Island Hospital and deputy dean at Brown’s School of Public Health. They discuss the direction of healthcare in Rhode Island, how science can compete with the spread of conspiracy theories, and treating gun violence as a public health issue.

Rhode Island’s 'housing czar,' Josh Saal, is stepping down after one year on the job, amid complaints about his attempts to address the state’s housing crisis.

Gov. Dan McKee hired Saal in 2021 from a job with New York City’s housing agency. That was after the General Assembly created a new post meant to focus on and lead efforts to address Rhode Island’s housing crisis.

Saal started on the job in January 2022, and the legislature last year approved $250 million to address housing needs through an array of programs.

But top lawmakers say too little progress has been made since then. Saal has also been criticized for efforts to assist people who lack housing, and his compilation of reports on the housing issue.

2022 provided thrills and spills; 2023 looks like more of the same

New from On Sports: We have turned the page on 2022 and the collapse of the Red Sox, Patriots, URI men’s basketball, and Brown football.

We have witnessed the rise of the Celtics, the PC Friars, the Bryant Bulldogs, and URI women’s basketball.

We have watched URI football become a consistent winner, a Providence kid, Jeremy Peña, become the World Series MVP, and a Johnston kid, Dan Mazzulla, become head coach of the Celtics.

Now what? Let’s look back at a few of the events and circumstances that got us to the first week of January 2023 and glimpse what might occur as we make our way through the next 12 months.

New Bristol County sheriff promises data-driven approach to corrections

Republican Tom Hodgson had run the county jails in Dartmouth and New Bedford for a quarter century, during which his charisma and his tough-on-crime approach toward inmates turned him into a local legend.

But details about Hodgson’s rehabilitation programs were often hard to pin down. In recent state-mandated reports, for instance, the Bristol County Sheriff’s Office left numerous fields blank about the size and scope of dozens of its programs.

The new sheriff, Paul Heroux, a technocrat with degrees from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and the London School of Economics, is promising to modernize Bristol County’s jails with a data-driven approach to corrections. Heroux was sworn in Tuesday night.

ICYMI: Across the country, communities are dealing with a dual crisis of homelessness and addiction. Nationwide, roughly half of all people who are chronically homeless have substance use disorders.

Chasing the Fix focuses on Woonsocket, R.I., a former mill city which, in 2021, had the state’s highest rate of drug overdose deaths. And since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, like so many other cities, the population of unhoused residents also has grown.

Chasing The Fix explores some of the barriers faced by people experiencing homelessness who also are struggling with addiction.
