WOONSOCKET â The Martin Luther King Day Community Committee capped a celebratory weekend of events honoring the slain civil rights leader with a wreath-laying ceremony at the colorful new King Memorial on South Main Street.
The sculpture-like tableau depicting King preaching to a band of followers was dedicated last fall, but yesterday was the first time it had served as the backdrop for a formal King Day celebration.
By all accounts, the cityâs newest work of public art made stellar grades on the occasion, even if the perennials used in the landscaping are dormant this time of year.
WARWICK â On a day that saw this country honor the memory and contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and watch as President Obama mapped out his second-term desires, it seemed appropriate to talk leadership.

BURRILLVILLE â Looking rather glum, Steve Daigle stood outside Burrillville Highâs locker room at Levy Rink on Monday afternoon and sighed at what had just transpired.
âIt was a disaster,â he said after his Broncos had suffered a humiliating 6-0 Division I loss to powerhouse Hendricken. âThe kids just didnât come ready to play for some unknown reason. They just didnât have it. They didnât come out of the gate with any kind of energy, which is something you definitely need against the privates.
PAWTUCKET â Should we stay or should we go? That was the question facing Lincoln head coach Jim Riel during the offseason when the RIIL was getting ready to realign its teams for the 2012-13 campaign.
Stay in the Division I-Eccleston and the Lions would have been competitive night in and night out against the other five public schools in the division. Drop down to Division II and also face a drop in competition, but the Lions would have been one of the clear favorites in the running for a lower state championship.
