Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Mea Culpa: Please see Number 1A (below). We're breaking from TGIF's usual format this week to look at key questions facing Rhode Island at the traditional start to summer. While the season of beaches and barbecues is generally a more relaxed time, a lot of significant outcomes hang in the balance. So thanks for stopping by.

The annual Metcalf Awards for Diversity in Media in Rhode Island have been announced by Rhode Island for Community and Justice. For the second year in the past three years, RI Public Radio education reporter and current interim news director Elisabeth Harrison has won a Metcalf. She won for a story entitled `Transgender Bullying’ at Goff Junior High School in Pawtucket. Veteran ProJo reporter Tom Mooney, a fine writer, won for his article `On Patrol, Reflections About Race.’

For more than 40 years, Bob Kerr worked at the Providence Journal, where he was beloved by many readers for his columns about the people and the issues that animate Rhode Island. Recently, he’s been thinking back on his time at the ProJo.

Hilary Horton was my editor when I wrote the local column in the Providence Journal 20 years ago.  We would get together in the late afternoon, looking for the better word, cleaning up the clutter, finding what the heck I was trying to say.  The column was always the better for it.
