Kids are fascinated by cannons. These island Boy Scouts got a lesson in 1700s-era artillery in May at the annual Conanicut Battery Day hosted by the Jamestown Historical Society. Members of Newport Artillery Company were on hand to fire the cannon. Revolutionary Warera military reenacters set up camp to show what daily life was like for the soldiers.

In April, these Pell Newport Bridge toll collectors showed off a small sample of the 200,000 tokens redeemed. They fill a 15-foot by 15-foot room at the RITBA office. From left are Collector-Supervisor Donna Ruhle, Plaza Superintendent Dave Reilly and Director of Operations Marianne Hillier. Together the three RITBA employees have 76 years experience at the bridge. All three said they are glad the token days were behind them.
