November 27, 2011

CUMBERLAND — The Cumberland High wrestling team opens practice today without returning state runner-up Erik Travers, who has become a key member of the football team this season.
The Cumberland gridders are scheduled to visit Chariho on Tuesday night in a Division II semifinal contest. Travers, a 5-foot-8, 150-pound junior, will start at cornerback on defense and halfback on offense.

SHOPPING LOCALLY

Jessica Bliss and her daughter, Gabriella, 4, of Cumberland, shop for bead bracelets Saturday at Tranquil Gardens on Mendon Road in Cumberland. Yesterday was known nationally as Shop Local Saturday — to offset the frenzy of shoppers who frequented the ‘big box’ chain stores on Black Friday.

While the first installment covered the town’s earliest days, this one touches on the most colorful events of the 1700s through the late 1800s, from the tragic saga of “Betty the Learned Elephant” to the discovery of gold in the woods of Durfee Hill.
