CUMBERLAND â Samuel Ackerman, a Cumberland High School senior, is one of two Rhode Island students chosen to spend a week in Washington D.C. next month to participate in the prestigious United States Senate Youth Program.
WARWICK â Twenty years ago, Tom Hanksâ silver-screen portrayal of the slow-witted Forrest Gump earned the acclaimed actor an Academy Award and a huge payday. The 1994 release is remembered for the lead characterâs array of quirky and quick-to-the-point quotes, some of which still hold merit today.
NORTH SMITHFIELD â The signs of town and school officials playing poker with the local education budget grew stronger this week as the Town Council tendered a settlement offer to school officials, who in turn rejected the proposal.
The move left a wide-ranging threat of cuts looming for department employees and programs affecting graduating seniors that by all accounts no one really wants to see enacted as a solution to the School Departmentâs projected $470,000 deficit for the current fiscal year.
It almost never fails.
Every now again, the budgetary scalpel cuts off funding for sports at the middle school and high school levels.
Naturally, such slicing prompts strong reaction from everyone in town â concerned parents to coaches to the real victims affected by this slashing of essential monetary support, the adolescent student-athletes.
WOONSOCKET â It may have been a non-league tilt, but it might as well have been a league game against La Salle or Hendricken.
Mount St. Charles played one of its best periods of the winter against Hamden (Conn.) High in the middle session on Saturday night, notching three goals. In the end, the Mounties celebrated a 4-2 victory at Adelard Arena.
WOONSOCKET â Diane Newberry has just one thing to say to The Beatles: She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah.
But itâs more than love. Itâs pop culture osmosis of the highest order.
See, the Fab Four broke up nearly three decades before the junior at North Smithfield High School was born. Somehow, the musical vibe of a bygone era has hop-scotched over a bridge of time â and a cacophony of modern-day, hip-hoppy sounds â to reach into the heart of a 16-year-old.
âI love âem,â says Newberry. âTheyâre my favorite band.â
WOONSOCKET â Police arrested a Providence teenager whose alleged drug-drops in East Woonsocket so irked neighbors that one family asked the mayor to intervene this week.
Angel Peguero, 18, of 1030 Atwells Ave., was arrested Thursday on four counts of possession of crack cocaine with the intent to deliver, maintaining a narcotics nuisance, distribution of a controlled substance, distributing a controlled substance near a school, and possession of a controlled substance.
