. . . to Casa Diablo regulars Christine Roundtree and Philip Palombo who, it was noted in a front page story in last Sunday's BeloJo, are among the educators involved in Rhode Island College's Pathways Through College program for high school seniors, which is now in its second year.

Anyone who has heard one or more of Ms. Roundtree's Martin Luther King Day addresses at City Hall (when she was safeguarding human and civil rights for the city, before — in P&J's estimation — certain elements in the city government found her zeal for fairness to be, shall we say, "inconvenient") knows the passion and no-nonsense approach she brings to bear. We can't think of a couple of better role models for these young people.
