Woonsocket girls lose with Fugere ailing

January 10, 2012

WOONSOCKET – On a night the offense struggled mightily, East Providence’s defense rose to the occasion, especially at the end of the opening half, and fetched the Townies an important Division I-North victory over Woonsocket on Tuesday night.
The Townies’ ‘D’ forced the Novans to commit the bulk of their 20 turnovers and played a big role in an 18-point run in the first half by keeping their hosts scoreless for eight-plus minutes, and in the process, helping produce a 54-39 triumph.

Art honoring Dr. King planned for Woonsocket

January 10, 2012

WOONSOCKET — If all goes according to plan, a prominent traffic island will soon feature a permanent display of public art honoring the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. and his message of racial tolerance.
The unique display at the junction of Mason and South Main streets will depict a likeness of the slain civil rights leader ministering to a half-dozen children and adults. The figures are reminiscent of the pop-up silhouettes of storybook art, except in this case they’ll be carved from thick plate steel and slightly bigger than life size, weighing hundreds of pounds each.

PROVIDENCE — On a day when Lincoln Patrolman Edward M. Krawetz took the stand and claimed his kick to the head of a sitting, handcuffed woman was made in self-defense, both his lawyer and the prosecutor told Superior Court Judge Edward C. Clifton they would be ready for closing arguments this morning.
Attorney John Harwood had made a motion after the defense rested Tuesday afternoon to dismiss the case, but Assistant Attorney General Stephen Regine explained to the judge he saw no reason why it should be. Those arguments will be included in their closing remarks.
