WOONSOCKET â€” After his regular classes at Woonsocket High School, Jamel Williams usually heads over to the RiverzEdge Arts Project in Market Square for hands-on training in silk-screen printing. But he couldn't make it yesterday.
He was too busy being honored by first lady Michelle Obama in Washington, D.C.
In a ceremony at the White House, the first lady bestowed the 2010 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Awards on 15 organizations, including RiverzEdge and the Providence-based Community Music Works.
LINCOLN â€” As she readied herself for school Tuesday morning, Lincoln High junior Taylor Jutras argued vehemently with her mother, Tammy, about a mere two dollars. When â€śMaâ€ť wouldn't budge on the request, she stormed out of the house â€śin a huff.â€ť
About five hours later, Taylor admitted she had texted her mom several times, promising she was sorry for her behavior and understood Tammy's stance on the matter.

Must-win games? It seems like fans will have their pick of the litter when it comes to teams in the Blackstone Valley this weekend!
Fridayâ€™s action features four schools -- East Providence, Cumberland, Shea, and St. Raphael -- who sorely need to win their games over tough opponents in order to keep their respective playoff hopes alive.
PROVIDENCE -- The good news for Joe Gardner is that heâ€™s going to fight for the EBA (Eastern Boxing Association) New England light heavyweight championship on Nov. 12 at the Twin River Event Center.
The bad news is that the Woonsocket fighter is going to have to battle a very familiar boxer to him, his trainer, Bob Moreau, and his corner -- his favorite sparring partner, Keith Kozlin of West Warwick.
PROVIDENCE -- Itâ€™s been two years since Peter Manfredo Jr. last fought in Rhode Island, but for the Manfredoâ€™s Gym world middleweight champion, it seems like a lifetime ago.
The last time Manfredo stepped into the ring in this state, he endured one of the worst defeats of his pro career -- a third-round TKO loss to Sakio Bika for the IBO (International Boxing Organization) super middleweight title at the Dunkinâ€™ Donuts Center.
