WOONSOCKET â€“ Walmart, Loweâ€™s and Shawâ€™s have already disappeared from Diamond Hill Road. Now city officials say the entire Woonsocket Plaza, including Burlington Coat Factory, Price-Rite and a half-dozen smaller chain stores, is at risk of vanishing from the cityâ€™s retail strip.
WOONSOCKET â€” Nolan Hayward did his homework. He talked to a number of colleges and spent some quality time researching them and their baseball programs.
But deep down, the Mount St. Charles Academy senior knew exactly what college he wanted to attend once his high school days were over. He knew the answer before he started grade school, and there really wasnâ€™t anything that was going to change his mind.
A little of this, a little of that â€¦
You could say there was a heavy presence of local talent on this fallâ€™s menâ€™s soccer program at Rhode Island College.
The roster featured three players from Pawtucket â€“ Camilo Estrada, Anderson Monteiro and Chuck Oddih â€“ and two from Lincoln â€“ Emmanuel Asiedu and Alexander LaBreche. Estrada and Asiedu learned earlier this week that their efforts and contributions did not go unnoticed by their contemporaries. Both were named to the Second Team All-Little East Conference.

The first snow of the season to stick, even though lightly, was a reminder on Tuesday that area public works departments will soon be spending money on keeping roads safe through another winter season.
Cumberland Mayor Dan McKee said public works employees in his community knew a light snowfall might arrive with the quick change to cold weather following the weekend but did not have to go out sanding just yet.
â€śBut it is a wakeup call,â€ť McKee said while noting the early snow squalls did call attention to work already being completed to ready the townâ€™s fleet of 17-18 plows and sanders.
