Life-long bond inspires ‘Death Racers’

June 7, 2013

LINCOLN – Andy Souvalian had been trying to complete his usual business as an assistant administrator at Amica Insurance Co. headquarters on the afternoon of Monday, April 15 when he heard the horrifying news, that someone had exploded two bombs at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

His immediate thought: “Oh, no! How's Roup?”

His best friend, Rhode Island State Police Trooper Roupen Bastajian of Greenville, had been running in the grueling 26.2-mile race from Hopkinton to Copley Square, and he wondered if his pal had suffered any injuries.

It pays to be on council

June 7, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Even after taking a 10 percent pay cut recently, members of the City Council are still among the highest paid officials of their kind in the state, at $9,000 a year.
But all that could change if a proposal to slash the salaries of councilors and members of the School Committee gains any traction at a special meeting called for Monday night. Council salaries would drop by 33 percent, taking them down to $6,000.
For school officials, the cut would be closer to 44 percent, dropping salaries from $7,200 to $4,000, with a $250 perk for the chairperson.
