March 19, 2011

PROVIDENCE --- Drama? On this night, it only lasted a period.

March 19, 2011

PROVIDENCE — After battling a stiff headwind for the first mile of the St. Pat’s 5K, Stephen Pretak knew his goal of running close to 15 minutes would not happen Saturday morning.
But the less-than-favorable conditions in the Providence race didn’t stop him from breaking the tape a winner.
The 26-year-old Connecticut native captured the final stage of the inaugural Tour de Patrick, finishing the out-and-back course with a time of 15:31.7. Pretak held off defending titlist Eric Lonergan of North Kingstown, who claimed the runner-up spot at 15:35.4.

Special meeting Monday focuses on funding

March 19, 2011

CUMBERLAND - The Town Council will hold a special meeting Monday to discuss the town's legislative agenda, which will include hot button issues such as acceleration of the school funding formula phase-in, vehicle excise tax, and state housing aid.
The meeting gets underway at 7:30 p.m. in the Cumberland Public Library's Hayden Center meeting room, 1464 Diamond Hill Road.
Each year, the council develops an agenda that both supports and opposes legislation based on whether or not the bills help the town achieve its goals or detracts from those objectives.
