The three vacant buildings that made the former Vamco jewelry site an eyesore in Riverside for years have been demolished; now the East Providence site must be cleared of any hazardous soil.
The former Vamco jewelry property in Riverside has been cleared of the three vacant buildings that made it an eyesore for years. Ridding the soil of hazardous chemicals is next. GZA GeoEnvironmental of Providence will start remediating the site of any hazardous materials so it can be offered for business development, said David Bachrach, East Providence’s community development director. The work could start by the end of June. A privacy chain-link fence will go up to shield the site from passers-by as that work takes place, he said. Crushed stone also will be sloped toward the basements that were left behind as stone- or concrete-lined holes in the ground, he said.

I'm hoping to drive my old beater into the ground before we need to get another car, but I'm on the lookout. What's your next car going to be?
My wife and I drive a perfectly good 2002 Nissan Sentra with 127,318 miles on it. "Stella" has four wheels and gets us from Point A to Point B. We've reached the stage in the life of the car where we don't repair body damage (as you can tell from the accompanying photo). I'm ashamed for my Dad to see it. But hey, it's paid for. Even though I'd love to get 200K miles out of Stella, she has some mechanical problems, like a seized bolt that has left the transmission fluid unchangeable for about eight years.
