Potential lawsuit could threaten charter school

June 10, 2015

WOONSOCKET – Now that state education officials have granted final approval to RISE Prep Mayoral Academy, there is a move afoot to file a lawsuit in Superior Court to prevent the school from opening in the fall.
Council President Albert G. Brien said a lawsuit may not be necessary, because there are at least two bills pending in the General Assembly that could prevent the school from opening. But Brien said that if state lawmakers fail to act, he is prepared to ask the City Council to partner with the Woonsocket Teachers Guild as plaintiffs in a suit.

Statehouse of Cards: Power, corruption often go hand-in-hand for Rhode Island’s legislative leaders

June 9, 2015

PROVIDENCE – When ex-House Speaker Gordon D. Fox is sentenced in federal court tomorrow on corruption charges, his fall from grace will be complete.

June 9, 2015

LINCOLN – Alex Levin knew there was going to be a celebration, but not the extent.

Mere seconds after he himself recorded the final out, Lincoln High’s starters rushed him from their positions and the subs poured out of the dugout with a single mission: Piling onto Levin, then standing near the hill.

“I had to squeeze my catcher (senior Jake Petrin) from underneath; I kept saying, ‘Get ‘em off me – now!’” Levin grinned afterward. “I couldn’t breathe.”

June 8, 2015

NORTH SMITHFIELD – Town Administrator Paulette Hamilton has faced a steady drumbeat of criticism for her decision to serve as chairwoman of the proposed RISE Mayoral Academy.

Now she may pay with her job.

Mount St. Charles Baseball | Mounties prevail in back-and-forth 14-13 affair against Crusaders

June 8, 2015

WOONSOCKET – Mount St. Charles and The Prout School are certainly no strangers to exciting and memorable Division II playoff encounters. Who can forget the 2009 finals at McCoy Stadium that saw the Mounties earn the title with an eight-inning, walk-off win in Game 2?

How about the 2010 finals between the same two teams that saw MSC respond from a Game 1 setback to capture the next two?
