NEWPORT CITY - “I don’t think an outsider just lands here, I think we’re chosen to be here,” Beth Barnes told the Newport Rotary Club Tuesday. “I think we all have something to bring to this community.”
The original purpose of the Facebook page was so Barnes’ friends and family around the world could keep track of her. Her page soon became well known. As of Tuesday, it had 134 followers. Barnes started making posts about things other sources were not reporting or discussing.

Please see the Newport Daily Express Wednesday for the complete story.
