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.

While thereâ€™s no denying the merit of such a feat, Yvonne was far more interested in seeing what Bryce could do for an encore.
