Ex-Woonsocket police chief hopes coffee will lure drivers to pull over

October 4, 2013

CUMBERLAND — For those who love coffee, sometimes there just isn’t time to go out to a coffee house for that beloved cup of joe.

Michael Houle and his wife, Linda, have a solution to that quandary with their Coffee Breaks single-serving coffee and accessories store at 2275 Diamond Hill Road, near the Route 295 interchange.

The Houles stock over 200 flavors of one-cup coffee, tea and juice packets for Keurig-style coffee makers, as well as a line of whole bean coffee from the Mills Coffee Roasters Co., on Broad Street in Providence.

October 4, 2013

CUMBERLAND – Saturday night’s Division II-B football contest between Cumberland and St. Raphael is still scheduled to kick off at 7 o’clock.

The location, however, has changed.

Thanks to Friday’s rainstorm shutting down operations on the track surface at Tucker Field, Cumberland officials found themselves in a precarious position, that of scrambling to find a last-minute venue that would still allow the game to take place on its rescheduled night. Their wishes didn’t go unanswered for long, as Pawtucket’s Max Read Field will now serve as the Clippers’ “home field” against the Saints.
