Navigant eliminated from Northeast competition

August 11, 2012

OLD ORCHARD BEACH, Me. — By no means should Navigant Credit Union Post 85 feel blue after the local ball club saw its season come to an end Saturday in the Northeast Regional American Legion Baseball Tournament.
Sure, no one wants to lose, but even after a 4-2 setback to Barnstable, Mass., Navigant has much to celebrate. For a team that a week ago came out of nowhere to capture the R.I. Senior Division championship, the local lads enjoyed a storybook ride that saw them put forth quite the fight right up to the bitter end.

August 11, 2012

WOONSOCKET – Gary Fernandes is thinking big again at his River Falls Complex at Market Square.
You can see just how big from the fence overlooking the lower Woonsocket Falls section of the Blackstone River where it curves around the corner of the former Falls Yarn Mill, which is home to the Complex' River Falls Restaurant and CitySide nightclub.
Fernandes and his development company have been hard at work completing a long-planned patio and walkway around the back of the early-1800s mill building that he had started planning more than six years ago.

WOONSOCKET – Six polling places voters have been using for at least a decade have been permanently retired as part of a statewide redistricting effort earlier this year.
As a result of the remapping of voting districts, the city’s total number of polling places has shrunk from 16 to 11, according to Estelle Corriveau, manager of the Board of Canvassers.
In addition to losing six polling places, one new one was added – Woonsocket Middle School at Hamlet, 60 Florence Drive.
