August 8, 2015

LINCOLN – When a police officer arrives on the scene of a crime or at a routine traffic pullover, it’s his or her job to make sure everyone on scene is safe, including the officer. It’s also part of the job to ensure that everyone is comfortable, for the benefit of the situation.

NORTHBRIDGE — Graphic artist Nathan J. DiPerri met the love of his life at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum in 2011. Three years later, he and LaSalle Academy English teacher Julianne Frega were married.

Sadly, things will never turn out so well for Romeo and Buddy, the characters they created for their old-fashioned newspaper comic strip, “Mates and Dates.”
