Randall advances to finals of R.I. Amateurs

July 12, 2012

MIDDLETOWN – The finals of the 107th R.I. Golf Association Amateur Championship will feature the old guard vs. the new guard. Charlie Blanchard, a seasoned pro who’s certainly no stranger when it comes to making waves on the links during the summer, will take Cumberland native Jamison Randall in a 36-hole derby set for Friday at Wanumetonomy Golf &Country Club.
The first 18 holes of this stroke play format will take place beginning at 8 a.m. with the final 18 commencing shortly after 1 p.m.

Body in river identified as Lorenzo Ajavon, 17

WOONSOCKET – Lorenzo Ajavon was a typical 17-year-old who liked listening to music and shooting hoops with his friends at Globe Park.
He had no track record with the police and no known history of drug involvement, but within hours of leaving his home at 372 Robinson St. Sunday he ended up in the Blackstone River, dead.
How and why are questions that now vex the police.
“It’s a mystery,” said Detective Sgt. Matt Ryan, spokesman for the Woonsocket Police Department. “This isn’t like anything I’ve every encountered before.”
