Slatersville Congregational Church

Starring

BOOT HILL BAND

 

Don Colt and the Boot Hill Band was formed in Lincoln, RI, especially to play outdoors at summer town concerts.  We appeal to that crowd of music fans who love classic country and southern rock from the 70's and 80's who want to enjoy a summer evening listening to good music.  You won't find a band quite like the Boot Hill band, with hard driving bass and drums, rocking lead guitar and distinctive but varied pedal steel sounds, all backing the unique lead vocals of Don Colt. 

 

Generously sponsored by:

Navigant Bank

 

**Bring blankets, lawn chairs, and join family and friends under the summer skies.  **The church kitchen will be serving great food and ice cream sundaes to top off the night.  **The North Smithfield Food Pantry will be holding a 50/50 raffle to benefit the pantry and get ready for winter needs.

The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee is calling for a halt to any further proceedings of Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination after new allegations of sexual misconduct. In a letter to Republican chairman Chuck Grassley, Senator Dianne Feinstein [[ Fine-stine ]] says the accusation reported in The New Yorker magazine should be referred to the FBI for investigation. A woman named Deborah Ramirez says Kavanaugh exposed himself in front of her when he was a freshman at Yale University.        The latest tariffs against China are now in effect. The Trump administration announced last week plans to hit 200-billion-dollars worth of Chinese imports with ten-percent tariffs. The penalty will jump to 25-percent at the end of the year.        Bill Cosby may have just had his last weekend of freedom. A sentencing hearing for the legendary comedian begins today in a Philadelphia suburb. Cosby was found guilty in April of drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University athletics staffer Andrea Constand at his home in 2004.        Apple is turning down a streaming series based on the life of Dr. Dre because CEO Tim Cook felt it was too dark and violent. The show, Vital Signs, reportedly had drug use, guns and an orgy. Cook personally nixed picking up the show and the Wall Street Journal says it's because he doesn't want to cause any damage to Apple's consumer product sales. The streaming service is tentatively scheduled for a March 2019 debut.        A few massive upsets set the stage for a crazy Sunday during Week Three. The Bills shocked the Vikings 27-6, the Titans stunned the Jaguars 9-6 and the Lions punished the Patriots 26-10. New Orleans beat the Falcons 43-37 in OT to cap a wild shootout, while the Dolphins improved to 3-and-0 with a 28-20 victory against the Raiders.        There are reports Toyota is ready to hook up with Android Auto. Bloomberg reports the Japanese auto giant will soon support Android Auto. That's the technology that, along with Apple CarPlay, brings the phone experience onto the dashboard to cut down distraction. Toyota isn't commenting but Bloomberg cites a source who says the announcement could come as soon as next week.
