No shortage of memories in 2010

December 26, 2010

CVS wins zoning round

December 23, 2010

WOONSOCKET — CVS/Caremark won a round Tuesday as the Zoning Board unanimously rejected an abutter's plea to quash final plans for a new pharmacy proposed for busy Chipman's Corner.
Ron Genereux of 41 Dana St. said the board spurned his argument that the Planning Board should have taken another look at the proposal because it contains new elements that will affect the flow of traffic in the congested intersection.
“It's what we expected I think,” said Genereux. “The zoning board was predisposed to grant CVS permission to move forward.”

Lots has changed for Villa Novan hoopsters

December 22, 2010

WOONSOCKET — As Christmas approaches, college students are returning home from their campuses near and far away, reuniting with hometown friends, high school pals and former teammates.
Very few students in a working-class city like Woonsocket proceed in a straight line from high school graduation to earning their college diploma in four or even five years. Some have to work to earn money for college. Others start off at one college, find they made the wrong choice for themselves and return home, choosing to attend CCRI or Rhode Island College as their goals change.
