BURRILLVILLE â€“ When Tyler Seddon of Pascoag turns 7 on March 6 he will be greeted be a sea of police uniforms and fire hats.
Tyler, who has leukemia, loves police and firemen, and his one birthday wish is to get lots of birthday cards from his heroes.
â€śHe goes crazy over firefighters and police,â€ť says Tylerâ€™s mother, Rachel. â€śWe want this to be a special birthday, because you never know what could be next.â€ť
PROVIDENCE â€“ Cumberland High junior Jack Bauer created a bit of personal history on Sunday afternoon.
And, in the interim, the male aquamen hailing from Smithfield High manufactured a team triumph for the ages.
Bauer didn't claim either one of his specialties at these Rhode Island Interscholastic Boys Swimming Championships, held at Brown University's Katherine Moran Coleman Aquatics Center, but couldn't have been more ecstatic about tying for second in the 100-yard butterfly or placing fourth in the 100-yard backstroke.
