The bulbs have never all been on at once with always a few out which looks poor. Get them working right and look after them or shut them off.

To be honest, I don't really care. As long as the residents of Tiverton and Little Compton are being treated like the red-headed step children of Rhode Island with the imposition of this tax (bridge toll) to access the rest of out county and state, I refuse to ever cross that bridge. As far as I'm concerned the Sakonnet bridge doesn't exist. I will buy my gas in MA as well as do all my shopping there. On the rare occasion I need to travel to the island, I will take the long way around through Warren and Bristol.
