Lonsdale, Saylesville residents urged to vote for consolidation LINCOLN – This Saturday, Sept. 23, voter turnout will determine the fate of the Lonsdale Fire District and future of the neighboring Saylesville Fire Department. Now that state lawmakers have passed legislation allowing a special election to be held, Saylesville and Lonsdale residents will have the opportunity to vote on the proposed consolidation of the two districts, a move both fire districts' boards and administration have backed, and urge voters to support. Lonsdale residents are asked to vote on the surrendering of the fire district's charter to Saylesville, meaning all assets and liabili- ties would be taken over by the Saylesville department. Should the proposal pass, Lonsdale residents' tax rates would decrease to mirror Saylesville's rates.

Cozy Quarters Pet Inn on the Lincoln/North Smithfield border hosted the special canine yoga event. Langella was there to lead the yoga class while participants followed her and played with puppies, with the goal of nudging participants into adopting them. The event was a benefit for Rhode Island Pet Connection Foundation. More photos on page 28.
