Voters to get their say at the ballot box tomorrow

November 3, 2013

WOONSOCKET – You’ve heard the rhetoric, you’ve listened to the ads, you’ve seen the signs. Now it’s almost time to choose the candidates who will serve as mayor and members of the City Council for the next three years.

After one of the most spirited contests in years, voters will choose between incumbent Mayor Leo T. Fontaine and State Rep. Lisa Baldelli-Hunt when the polls open tomorrow at 8 a.m. City elections are non-partisan, but for what it’s worth, Fontaine is a Republican who is seeking his third term. Baldelli-Hunt is a Democrat who has served in the House since 2006.

November 3, 2013

FOSTER – All season long, Amy Laverty carried Cumberland High on her slender shoulders. Sunday at the Rhode Island High School Cross Country Championships that took place at Ponaganset High, the sophomore was the recipient of a little help from her Clipper teammates.
The Cumberland girls ended up placing five runners inside the top 50, such a strong showing resulting in a fourth-place finish in the team standings and a coveted spot in next weekend’s New England Championships in Manchester, N.H. As usual, Laverty was the Clippers’ top point getter, finishing eighth with a time of 19:05.

November 3, 2013

LINCOLN — Like most coaches, Lincoln High chief John D’Aloisio admitted being more relieved than thrilled after his club celebrated an incredibly well-played, physical but nonetheless thrilling 2-1 shootout victory over East Greenwich in a R.I. Division Tournament quarterfinal on Saturday night.
“You really can’t enjoy it until the whole thing is finished,” he confessed with a smile, referring to the fact his Lions still need to furnish two triumphs to capture the state title in which they’ve all been longing.

Baldelli-Hunt: Let's do better

November 3, 2013

Woonsocket, mayoral candidate Lisa Baldelli-Hunt says, has a branding problem.

Campaigning door-to-door across the city, rather than just in the 49th state representative district she has served at the Statehouse for the last several years, has made her think of parts of the community that outsiders don’t always see.

Fontaine: Look over the record

November 3, 2013

WOONSOCKET — When he was a student at Woonsocket High School, long before anybody ever dreamed of school uniforms, Mayor Leo T. Fontaine had his own dress code.

Fellow classmates recall he routinely wore a tie during his high school days. By then, the youngest of seven siblings in a musically-inclined family had already been the church organist at Sacred Heart Parish for several years, a role he’s never given up. At 44, he still blushes when he hears a certain kind of joke.
