Judge Frank Caprio, shared an emotional video where he bravely announced that he is fighting pancreatic cancer.
In the video, Judge Caprio expressed his gratitude for the overwhelming support and kind messages he received after celebrating his 87th birthday surrounded by loved ones. However, this birthday took an unexpected turn when he wasn’t feeling well and sought medical attention.
After his examination, the diagnosis was confirmed: pancreatic cancer. Currently, Judge Caprio is undergoing treatment with teams of doctors in Rhode Island and Boston.
One of the things Judge Caprio asks of us is to lend our prayers. He firmly believes in the power of prayer, combined with the medical treatment he is receiving, as the most powerful weapon to aid his recovery. Join us in sending healing prayers and positive thoughts his way.
Please keep Judge Caprio in your thoughts and prayers as he fights his cancer battle 💜🙏

Burrillville firefighters responded to a fire overnight at the barn located on the same property made famous by the movie “The Conjuring.” No one was injured, the cause of the fire still remains unclear. 🔥🚒🏠 #burrillville #rhodeisland #whatsgoingoninrhodeisland...
This might be one of my favorite forms of vernacular architecture—the Lightning Splitter House!
I’ve only ever heard the term used around Rhode Island. Many older homes were altered in the 1800s to have steep gabled roofs, believed to deflect and split lightning. There are a handful of them still standing in and around Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
This example in Providence was originally built in 1781 as a 1.5 story gambrel roof. It was altered around 1855 to have the steeply pitched gable we see today. It is perched on a hill, so splitting lightning could be very useful.
Stone Lea—McKim, Mead & White, architects 1884. Swipe for a view of the house today—the same image I posted yesterday. The house is sited in a large grassy field with views over field stone walls to Block Island Sound. Thank you kylehoepner for sending me this image....
