Check out a sampling of reader comments on Patch sites throughout the region.

Narragansett: "Mrs. Festa is a wonderful teacher, she is vibrant and enthusiastic! Thank you for taking the time to feature a teacher! We are blessed to have such a private school feel in our town. Teachers take a beating in the media and with education reform. It is refreshing to see positive press!" — Donna Sweet, commenting on Festa Has Teaching In Her Blood

Coventry: "Greed will backfire on you sooner or later. Bad choice Bruce." — Robert, commenting on Coventry Resident Arrested on Possession of Cocaine With Intent to Deliver

Cranston: "I just want to congratulate this group girls who hung in there and played an outstanding game under adverse circumstances. It was a joy to watch and I wish them all the best." — Kevin Barbero, commenting on Girls Soccer: Thunderbolts Shock Saints In Overtime Thriller

East Greenwich: The world is a better place because of Bob Houghtaling. In the words of Elizabeth Kubler Ross: "The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern." — lee sperduti, commenting on Robert Houghtaling: Grand Marshal, Humble Man

Johnston: "Your kids are learning all about Roger Williams in school. Take a short ride, park the car, and show them where it really happened!" — Eric Carlson, commenting on Photo Gallery: Historic Site Opens on Morgan Avenue

North Kingstown: "Co-curricular activities are the lifeblood of the well rounded education experience. It would be a cop out on our part to not come up with creative solutions to our financial problems and cutting football to solve a $2M pension mandate is not it." — David Marble, commenting on UPDATED: NK School Bus Drivers Offered 5-year Contract

South Kingstown: "Please remember that a Veteran is not only someone who fought in a war, but anybody who served in the military, whether during war time or peace time. If you know anyone who has served our country, or who is currently serving, be sure to shake their hand and tell them Thank you for their service. Not just today, but every day! God bless our Veterans!" — Jim Weinreich, commenting on Today: Honor Those Who Fought for Our Freedom

Woonsocket: "We all want change, but do we really think anything is going to change if we have the same people in office? Thank goodness we do have some new faces on the Council and the School Committee. Unfortunately not enough." — Memere, commenting on Election Results: Moreau, Roberts Lead the Pack
