In the case of inclement weather, the ceremony would be moved to the ITU Hall inside the Museum.

Clippers' Crawley third in state championship race

November 6, 2011

FOSTER – About 600 meters into his race, Trevor Crawley wasn't in the position that he was looking for at Sunday's RIIL State Championship. Boxed in at the start, the Cumberland High junior found himself hovering near 20th place.
Not exactly a prime position for one of the state's top runners.

Can Clippers slow down Shea tonight?

November 6, 2011

CRANSTON – Form held true in three of the four Division I quarterfinal playoff games contested over the past three days. Top-seeded La Salle, third-seeded Shea and fourth-seeded Barrington all advanced. Only second-seed Central Falls fell by the wayside, beaten 3-2 by seventh-seeded Cumberland on Saturday afternoon.
That sets up unbeaten La Salle versus defending champion Barrington in tonight’s 5 p.m. opener at Cranston Stadium followed by Shea and Cumberland at 7 p.m.

Election drama may center on City Council

November 6, 2011

WOONSOCKET — If the October primary was a preview of how tomorrow’s election will turn out, most of the drama will center on a handful of City Council candidates who might have a shot a finishing last.
Much of the suspense may focus on whether incumbent Councilwoman Stella Guerra Brien can improve her standing in the primary enough to knock her father-in-law, Albert G. Brien, from his seventh-place finish. Stella Brien finished ninth in the primary, but she was just 33 votes behind the elder Brien.
