On the Thursday, April 7th edition of The Open Forum on 1540 AM WADK Newport I shared some of my own thoughts on Newport current affairs and then was joined  by three guests between 1pm – 2pm.

Sail Newport and DEM are proposing a new marine educational and recreational facility at Fort Adams State Park, Brad Read (Executive Director of Sail Newport) joined me today to discuss this, let people know of a public meeting happening tonight, World Match Racing, Volvo Ocean Race and more.

There’s also a groundbreaking Community Garden Initiative underway and a way you can be a part of the local food revolution, Nikki Vasquez and Bob Gerber from the Aquidneck Community Table joined me to talk about this project and how you can get involved.
