Happy June!

Summer's here and the time is right for traffic in the streets. Between numerous construction projects and out-of-state plates, we'll all need an extra measure of patience this summer to navigate Newport. That's why I plan to walk, bike or run wherever / whenever I can. Before spinning your wheels check out this excellent bicycle safety article 10 Ways To NOT Get Hit By Cars. Take note, update your summer-fun playlist, then strap on your helmet or lace-up your sneakers for a good and good-for-you way to enjoy this season around town without going Wild in the Streets.  

Have Fun!
 and if you please...
