Tuesday, Jan. 7 7:45 a.m. – Someone notified police that a man was video-taping cars as they let students off on Tamarack Drive near the access road connecting Tamarack to East Greenwich High School. Police met with the man, who lives on Tamarack Drive. He told police he was taping the cars – not the students – because of traffic concerns in the area, in particular, middle school students who have to walk through the traffic en route to the bus stop in the morning.

As of right now, your best bet EG is the Walgreens at 1000 Division Street.
I got the last flu shot at CVS Pharmacy on Main Street. The store won't be getting any more until Monday at the earliest, they said, and maybe not even then. According to pharmacist Sherry Manferdini, the store didn't have any until a surprise shipment of 30 doses came in just after noon on Friday. By 5:30, when I arrived, they were down to the one. "Last year, we went through 1,300 at this store," Manferdini said. "This year already, we've gone through 2,000. They never anticipated such an increase year to year." At the CVS at 1285 South County Trail, they have flu shots, but only for people 65 and older. They were uncertain when they would be getting more to use on the general population. Walgreens at 1000 Division St. does have flu …

Linear Retail Properties is the new owner of what's more commonly known as the CVS plaza.
Linear Retail Properties of Burlington, Mass., has acquired East Greenwich Commons, the 41,000 square foot shopping center on Main Street anchored by CVS Pharmacy. The purchase price was $8 million dollars. The owner had been Greenwich Main, LLC, owned by James Karam of Tiverton, and the property had been assessed at $6.4 million, according to the tax assessor's office. For years the site was known as Almac’s plaza, even after the grocery store closed and portions of the property fell into disrepair. The upgrade came while it was owned by Karam. The shopping center building was developed in the late 1950’s and was occupied by Woollworth’s and Almac’s for many years. It was rehabbed in 2001, with CVS becoming the anchor store, taking over …

The Department of Transportation is expected to rule on the developer's traffic plan within the next two weeks, according to Link's lawyer, Peter Nolan. It's been a long time coming for Link principal Frank Paolino, who said in…
