Big football games await Northmen, Clippers, Novans

October 17, 2013

It’s hard to believe, but the midway point of the high school season is this weekend.
And in this state, the third weekend of October usually means two things -- a heavy dose of non-league games for Division II teams, and some interesting matchups in the other three divisions.
Two teams holding onto their playoff hopes are included in these divisional matchups, North Smithfield and Central Falls, and there will be plenty of interest in their respective “must-win” contests.

Meet-record 28 high school cross country teams gather in Burrillville for Skee Carter Invitational

October 17, 2013

BURRILLVILLE — As Burrillville High junior Betsy Dumais tried to hustle up the hill yards before the two-mile mark, and with a few harriers still within sight, her mind drifted to a former coach who always was there for her.
“Just as I got to ‘Carter’s Pass’ (a half-mile stretch that begins about a tenth of a mile later), I thought, ‘Those girls are pulling away,’ and I knew Coach wouldn’t stand for that. He’d be there cheering me on, trying to get me going,’” Dumais stated. “I knew I had to start moving.”

Report rips Raimondo’s job performance

Budget panel: FY 13 surplus totals $2.36M

October 17, 2013

WOONSOCKET – As promised, the Budget Commission released a much sought-after report yesterday preliminarily indicating that the city finished fiscal year 2013 on June 30 with a combined $2.36 million operating surplus for the city and its Education Department.

It may sound rosier than it is, since the city projected finishing the fiscal year with a cumulative multi-year deficit of $6.4 million. Thanks to the better-than-expected performance in the one-year operating position, that cumulative deficit is about a third smaller, but it still stands at an imposing $4.046 million.

AG sues city for access to records

October 17, 2013

WOONSOCKET — State Attorney General Peter Kilmartin has filed a lawsuit against the city for violating the Access to Open Records Act over a lawyer’s 2012 request for paperwork associated with the proposed water treatment plant.

The lawsuit accuses the city of two violations stemming from lawyer Michael Kelly’s December 2012 request for documents. One alleges that the city failed to answer the request within the minimum time frame allowed by law, the other that the city didn’t provide one specific document – the sales agreement for land on which the plant is to be built – at all.
