The Halliwell Review Committee invites the North Smithfield residents to participate in a public charette to discuss ideas and the future of the Halliwell School Property on July 24, 2021.

The morning will begin at the property at 358 Victory Highway at 9 AM. We will then transition to the North Smithfield Middle School Cafeteria at 10 AM.

What is a charette?

A charette is a design meeting where all stakeholders openly discuss and collaborate to create a program, understand goals and desires, solicit feedback from all, and to help build community consensus.

 

We hope to see you all there!

A federal judge is pumping the brakes on illegal immigrants being deported by the Biden administration using Title-42. That rule was put in place at the start of the pandemic in order to slow the spread of COVID-19. Meantime, thousands of migrants remain underneath an international bridge in the Texas town of Del Rio looking for entry into the U.S.       A key FDA advisory panel is recommending certain groups of people to receive a Pfizer booster shot. On Friday, the board says people 65-and-over and those deemed high risk should get a third dose. Earlier, the panel overwhelmingly voted against Pfizer COVID booster shots for the general public.        Jurors in Los Angeles are convicting Robert Durst of murdering his friend Susan Berman in L.A.'s Benedict Canyon neighborhood in 2000. The panel came to a decision after more than seven hours of deliberating.       France is recalling its ambassador to the U.S. over the new national security partnership with the U.K. and Australia. The French minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs issued a statement Friday, saying President Emmanuel Macron [[ MAH-crohn ]] made the request for the removal. The official cited the decision was made after the U.S. pulled out of the "ocean class submarine project that Australia and France had been working on since 2016."        A top U.S. general is apologizing for a recent drone strike that mistakenly killed 10 Afghans. CENTCOM Commander Kenneth McKenzie told a Pentagon briefing he is "fully responsible for the strike" and called it a "tragic mistake." The mission was carried out August 29th and left three adults and seven children dead.       One person is injured after a shooting at a Delaware mall. Multiple outlets say the shooting happened Friday afternoon at the Concord Mall. The area has since been evacuated.
