5 THINGS: Sports Is Back! We’re Back!

Sorry for that unscheduled Five Things absence, but with the restart of the spring sports season, we’re back as well.

Here are the (more than) Five Things for Wednesday, April 4, 2012:

“Tell your boss what you really think about him and the truth shall set you free.” – Patrick Murray. There will be a career fair at the University of Rhode Island’s Ryan Center today from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. If you’re going, dress professionally and bring copies of your resume. The fair is free to attend.

Hey, speaking of fairs! There will be a health and wellness fair in the Memorial Union at URI today from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. There will be blood pressure and glucose screenings, plus more. The event is free.

Hey, not a fair, but be fair. South Kingstown superintendent Kristen Stringfellow will be visiting West Kingston Elementary school at 3 p.m. to gets parent input about the job performance of Principal Mather. For more info, click here.

Hummmmmmm. All That Matters on Main Street in Wakefield will be hosting a free meditation class from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Bring your body, and an open mind – deep, I know.

“Acting is all about honesty. If you can fake that, you’ve got it made.” – George Burns. Ever wanted to act? Have you caught the acting bug? Indulge it, or starve it, or do something to it with the acting classes offered by the Contemporary Theatre Company. The classes start at 5 p.m., and admission is $10. The sessions take place at the CTC office in the South County Commons.

It’s business time. The Narragansett Finance Committee meets at 5:30 p.m. at the town hall. This is exactly what it sounds like. Also exactly what it sounds like – The South Kingstown Conservation Commission. It at 7 p.m. at South Kingstown Town Hall.

Check out some of the lovely fjords! The Rhode Island Genealogical Society will provide a slide show of its recent bus tour of historical sites in South Kingstown, Narragansett and North Kingstown. The event runs from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Peace Dale Library. Registration is recommended, so to learn how to do that, click here.

“And then there’s sport.” – Monty Python’s Flying Circus. Here is the sports schedule for Wednesday, with records omitted because most teams haven’t played many games yet:

He’s not the snack guy. On this day in 1581, Sir Francis Drake earned the “sir” part of his name by being knighted.

Happy birthday, Jamie Lynn Spears! You are 20 years old now, and after you got pregnant at 16, who would have thought that Britney would actually one-up you in the crazy department? At least you can take solace in the fact that the Lohans make your family look absolutely normal.
