WOONSOCKET â€“ City inspectors have ordered Dave and Charlene Densmore to shut down the elaborate Halloween house they built on their property, calling it a threat to public safety.
Featuring a witchâ€™s brew of ghosts, goblins and ghoulish creatures oozing fake blood, the labyrinthine structure is made from sections of recycled stockade fence, plastic tarps and salvage-yard specials. â€śFear for Food,â€ť as the Densmores call their concoction of creepy kitsch, is open to public for nothing more than the donation of a canned good, to be passed on to one of the local soup kitchens.

This is one of those times when getting it straight from the horseâ€™s mouth just seems right. In Dodgers first base coach Davey Lopes, you have someone who meets the criteria of gleaning insight into what exactly makes the Red Sox and Cardinals tick.
Lopesâ€™ credentials are unparalleled when it comes to weighing in/opining on the two World Series combatants. The East Providence native and La Salle Academy alumnus was part of a Los Angeles organization that recently got pushed aside by St. Louis in the National League Championship Series.
LINCOLN â€“ If you missed the first 30 seconds of Tuesday nightâ€™s Division II girlsâ€™ soccer clash between Lincoln and Warwick Vets, you missed a lot.
