2 NORTH COUNTY MAY 9-15, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER | SMITHFIELD SCITUATE FOSTER GLOCESTER EDITION On Tuesday, a computer database malfunction for The Valley Breeze newspapers, and the Observer, set us back. We have all had to work especially hard to get this edition to you, and it is not up to our normal standards. That said, it was important to get our local towns' most important news to you this week, as well as the many Mother's Day advertisements. We expect to have things back to normal next week.
