LINCOLN â€” The holiday season has officially arrived and Richard DiMasse and Dave Sale are hoping it will help local efforts to preserve a local one-room schoolhouse with purchases of this yearâ€™s Lincoln collectible ornament.
The tradition of creating a holiday ornament of a local landmark was started by the Lincoln Citizens Celebration Committee 17 years ago as a part of the townâ€™s observances for its 125th anniversary.
WOONSOCKET â€” It is certainly an advantage to have a museum in town when it comes to expanding educational opportunities for a communityâ€™s youth.
Staff members at the Museum of Work and Culture here in Woonsocket are also aware that research and planning are required for local teachers to use a museum as the best educational resource possible.
Thatâ€™s why a group of local fifth-grade teachers sat with the museumâ€™s education coordinator, Elizabeth Maynard, in the buildingâ€™s upstairs conference room last week to talk about their past and future visits to the Market Square facility.
WOONSOCKET â€“ Rhode Island Housing, the owner of Glenark Landing, is taking the 67-unit, subsidized housing complex into foreclosure.
But Mayor Leo T. Fontaine says the state agency owes the city over $200,000, money lent to the original developers of the mill-to-apartment conversion project in 1988.
Fontaine said foreclosure would wipe out the debt, but the city might not give up so easily. The mayor wants the City Council to explore its options at a briefing session Monday night, including the possibility of legal action.
Freshman seasons seldom get any better than the one Kelsey Lace enjoyed at The College of Saint Rose.
The Glendale resident and 2012 Mount St. Charles Academy graduate made a very seamless transition this year from R.I.â€™s top division in high school volleyball to the Northeast-10 Conference, and for her excellent efforts, she received a pair of prestigious honors.
WOONSOCKET â€” Thereâ€™s something about â€śbackyard brawlsâ€ť that bring out the best in Joe Gardner.
The Woonsocket Boxing Club super middleweight, who owns a 9-5-1 mark, is 6-1 in fights against opponents from Rhode Island and nearby communities in Massachusetts, and his only loss came in May 2010 when he decided to end a 6 1/2-year layoff by taking on New England champion Vladine Biosse on short notice.
PROVIDENCE â€” Thereâ€™s a burden placed on Providenceâ€™s Bryce Cotton and LaDontae Henton thatâ€™s almost unrivaled in terms of their value to the team.
With point guard Vincent Council sidelined, the pressure falls squarely on Cotton and Henton to carry the load. Neither one can afford the luxury of an off night, particularly since there arenâ€™t too many proven scoring options behind them.
PROVIDENCE â€” Ed Cooley estimates that his coaching responsibilities account for â€ś20 percentâ€ť of his duties at Providence College.
Ask him just how much that small slice in an otherwise demanding pie means to him and Cooley will tell you pointblank that coaching supplies a jolt that by and large remains unmatched. The time he spends on the basketball floor alongside his assistants and players or in the video room breaking down tape is pure nirvana â€“ not to mention a prime chance to reinforce what his primary job entails.
