Getting extra in your refund checks needn’t be so taxing

January 28, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Tax time has arrived and with it the potential for local families to bring in a little extra in their refund checks.
That was the message federal, state and local officials, and their community partners, put out Friday during the kickoff of the Rhode Island Community Action Association's (RICAA) annual effort to provide free tax preparation services to working Rhode Islanders at the Museum of Work and Culture.

Woonsocket, Mount girls among several teams with low numbers

January 28, 2012

When you play golf, consistently shooting low numbers is a positive thing. When you step on your bathroom scale, seeing low numbers will always make your day.
But when it applies to your basketball team, or any sport for that matter, low numbers are often not good. Low numbers usually equate to low numbers in the win column.
Longtime Mount St. Charles Academy girls’ basketball coach Nine Morey knows all about that. The Mounties, who have averaged 15 wins the last four seasons, including a state runner-up finish in 2007-08 and last year, are struggling this winter.

January 27, 2012

WOONSOCKET --- Caitlin Shea’s unassisted goal with 3:19 to play in the second period snapped a 2-2 tie, and Mount St. Charles was able to hold on the rest of the way and grab a 3-2 win over rival Bay View on Friday night at Adelard Arena.
The victory was the eighth in a row for the Mounties, who are 10-1 and had suffered their loss back on Dec. 16 to the Bengals, 2-1.

Lady Novans outlast SRA, 41-36

January 27, 2012

WOONSOCKET – On a night in which she was honored for scoring her 1,000 career point earlier this season, senior Kailey Fugere and the rest of her Woonsocket High teammates cooled off a resurging St. Raphael Academy program Friday night with a 41-36 decision at Savaria Gymnasium.
Fugere, who was recognized for her milestone during a halftime ceremony, finished with 17 points. The game was hardly the Villa Novans best effort, however, as St. Ray’s overcame a 14-point deficit before the break and made their host sweat it out until the final buzzer.
