WOONSOCKET â€“ You might say they don't build 'em like this anymore, but the truth is, they hardly ever built 'em like this, especially in the throes of the Great Depression.
With its cavernous marble lobby and skylit mezzanine, the Rhode Island Hospital Trust building is a downtown landmark that evokes a time, difficult to imagine now, when Woonsocket was a hub of commerce and wealth.
And now, it can all be yours for a mere $625,000.
CUMBERLAND --- Itâ€™s been seven years since Cumberland High last captured a playoff game, but on Thursday night, the Clippers ended that drought in a big way in its Division II preliminary-round match with Warwick Vets High.
Michaela Leblanc and Michelle Malboeuf had solid games at the net and Robyn Andrade and Jessica Larivee keyed a strong showing from the service line for the Clippers in their easy 3-0 triumph at the Clippers' Wellness Center.
While the fates of politicians were decided on Election Day, the fates of five playoff-hopeful Blackstone Valley clubs could be determined as early as this weekend or as late as Thanksgiving morning.
When October ended, so did much of the drama in the Division II-B playoff race. Last weekendâ€™s play saw the top three seeds etched in stone in Tolman (6-0), Woonsocket (5-1), and St. Raphael (4-2) and the final spot still up for grabs between Mount Hope and Toll Gate.
