Deck the tree with Lincoln history

December 1, 2013

LINCOLN – It’s time to decorate for the holidays, and Dave Sale and Dick DiMassie, members of the Lincoln Citizens Celebration Committee, are hoping local residents will support historic preservation with the purchase of the latest town ornament put out by the committee.

This year the ornament is a depiction of the wooden covered bridge near the Manchester Farm Road entrance of Lincoln Woods State Park.
“We think it will bring back a lot of memories for people who have visited Lincoln Woods over the years,” Sale said.

For Cumberland football team, there are no 'Tuesday Night Lights' concerns this time around

December 1, 2013

Even on the phone, Chris Skurka came across as a happy camper. Call such “merriness” not in keeping with the spirit of the holiday season, but rather it is based solely on the fact that his Cumberland football outfit does not have to concern itself with a semifinal-round game on Tuesday night.

LEO LOOKS BACK: Departing after 20 years in city government, city’s outgoing mayor says he has no regrets

November 30, 2013

Maybe there was an era when being the mayor of the seventh largest city in the state of Rhode Island was a fun job to have, but it did not belong to Mayor Leo T. Fontaine.

“I think at some time when there was a lot of money floating around, being mayor might have been a fun job,” says Fontaine. “I can’t say it was ever anything other than a lot of hard work.”

Northmen football is the name of the game for Keenan brothers

November 30, 2013

NORTH SMITHFIELD – Kevin may be the youngest of the six Keenan boys, but he still recalls the fondest moments of his childhood: How his father, Paul, would rave about the prospect of watching his sons represent North Smithfield High's varsity football team – together.

“We'd be sitting in front of the TV watching the Patriots, or be at the supper table, and Dad would bring it up, how we all could play together one day,” offered Kevin of those instances a decade or more ago. “I don't know if he knew it, but we were thinking the same thing.”

November 29, 2013

PROVIDENCE -- Ed Cooley and his Providence College Friars ended up playing eight games in November. It nevertheless seemed that all took a backseat to the reoccurring storylines and hot topics that remain just as fervent as the calendar flips to the second month of the college basketball season.
