School robotics team has won the state robotics championship and will move on to the Eastern Super-Regional Championship in York, Penn., where they will compete for a berth in the World Championship in St. Louis in April.

WOONSOCKET â Even after it was slashed by nearly a third in advance of the current fiscal year, the 30 percent homestead exemption is still the most generous benefit offered by a revenue-hungry local government, commandeered by a state-appointed Budget Commission.
Almost nothing has been asked of property owners who claim the exemption as a condition of receiving it. Theyâre supposed to live in the property on which the exemption is claimed, but the city makes that assumption for them based on property deeds that may not be conclusive, officials say.
NORTH SMITHFIELD â When one speaks of Division II-North, the conversation immediately addresses the rivalry between Lincoln, the defending state D-II champion and perennial contender, and Cumberland, always solid but a team that hasn't been able to âget over the topâ in recent years.
The same holds true this campaign, though the Clippers did snatch a key victory over the Lions last week to remain unbeaten in league action at 13-0-0 (14-0-0 overall).
