BURRILLVILLE â€“ There were a few goals that head coach Marty Crowley and his resurging Burrillville High girlsâ€™ program made at the beginning of the season.
The first was to possibly claim the Northern Division title, an attainable dream that may have been washed away after a loss to unbeaten Smithfield two weeks ago. Besides earning a slot for the state meet in November, another high focus for the Lady Broncos was to take down league rival Cumberland.
Thatâ€™s something that hasnâ€™t been done since 1984.
WOONSOCKET â€” You'll pardon Jerry St. Angelo if he seems so above it all.
After all, he is.
At least when he's working.
Like tree-trimmers and steeplejacks, St. Angelo spends most of his professional life higher above sea-level than the rest of us.
He's a restoration stonemason, a job that combines the talents of Spiderman and the patience of a brain surgeon. A foreman for RD Preservation, St. Angelo is in charge of a crew that's repairing dangerously unstable masonry on the facade of City Hall.
Just don't call him a bricklayer.

LINCOLN â€” Under the watchful eyes of instructors Deb Reddy and Paula Paluch, a group of perhaps a dozen Northern Elementary School students performed an assortment of body moves on a classroom floor early Monday afternoon.
â€śOK, we're doing the 'Down Dog,'â€ť Paluch announced to the girls as the tune â€śTownship Krishna,â€ť sung by Krishna Das, blared from a small CD player. â€śNow, swing to the 'Warrior 1.'â€ť
A few seconds passed, and Paluch asked the kids to move to the â€śWarrior 2,â€ť then to the â€śWindmillâ€ť and â€śCobraâ€ť before switching back to the â€śDown Dog.â€ť
