PROVIDENCE, R.I. – At Roger Williams University in Bristol, water rushes into a bathtub-sized tank on a dock at Mount Hope Bay. Dale Leavitt, an associate professor of marine biology, removes a cover revealing quahogs and oysters.
"If you look in here, these are all baby oysters that we've reared up this summer," Leavitt says. "We like to think of them as about the size of a quarter."
PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Lieutenant Governor Elizabeth Roberts will lead a panel for Governor-elect Lincoln Chafee on implementing the federal health care reform plan.
Chafee says Roberts is a natural choice for the role because of her knowledge of healthcare.
"This is a great chance to work together," Chafee says. "She has already spent four years working on this very, very important subject, so I look forward to working together again. That's the key to success."
