November 6, 2011

Approximately 50 veterans from the Blackstone Valley gathered on Saturday for a photo session in advance of Friday's Veterans Day holiday.
Here is a roundup of Veteran's Day news and events in the Woonsocket area:

WOONSOCKET -- Volunteers from the Georges Dubois Veterans Exhibit at the Museum of Work and Culture are planning a Veteran’s Day observance at 11 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 11, outside the Museum, which is located on Market Street.
In the case of inclement weather, the ceremony would be moved to the ITU Hall inside the Museum.

Clippers' Crawley third in state championship race

November 6, 2011

FOSTER – About 600 meters into his race, Trevor Crawley wasn't in the position that he was looking for at Sunday's RIIL State Championship. Boxed in at the start, the Cumberland High junior found himself hovering near 20th place.
Not exactly a prime position for one of the state's top runners.

Can Clippers slow down Shea tonight?

November 6, 2011

CRANSTON – Form held true in three of the four Division I quarterfinal playoff games contested over the past three days. Top-seeded La Salle, third-seeded Shea and fourth-seeded Barrington all advanced. Only second-seed Central Falls fell by the wayside, beaten 3-2 by seventh-seeded Cumberland on Saturday afternoon.
That sets up unbeaten La Salle versus defending champion Barrington in tonight’s 5 p.m. opener at Cranston Stadium followed by Shea and Cumberland at 7 p.m.

Election drama may center on City Council

November 6, 2011

WOONSOCKET — If the October primary was a preview of how tomorrow’s election will turn out, most of the drama will center on a handful of City Council candidates who might have a shot a finishing last.
Much of the suspense may focus on whether incumbent Councilwoman Stella Guerra Brien can improve her standing in the primary enough to knock her father-in-law, Albert G. Brien, from his seventh-place finish. Stella Brien finished ninth in the primary, but she was just 33 votes behind the elder Brien.

Chieftains let one slip away, 29-23

November 5, 2011

FOSTER — Home sweet home? For Ponaganset, home has been anything but sweet this season.
In their first two games on The Reservation, the Chieftains lost heartbreakers to the Division II-B’s top two clubs, West Warwick and Tolman. The Wizards rallied for 14 fourth-quarter points to eke out a 14-12 triumph, and the Tigers used three touchdowns in the second half to grab a 21-14 victory.
On Saturday afternoon, the Chieftains suffered another agonizing loss before a big “Senior Day” gathering, and this one stung a whole lot more than those other defeats.

RENAISSANCE VILLAGE -- Pascoag undergoes major changes

November 5, 2011

BURRILLVILLE — Ten years ago, downtown Pascoag was officially designated by the town as a "redevelopment district," an area long considered blighted and substandard and in need of serious revitalization.
If you've driven through lately, you may have noticed some big changes in the downtown area, which has undergone a sort of Renaissance — especially over the past several months.

Unbeaten Mount St. Charles Academy earned its 10th shutout of the season Friday night, defeating North Kingstown, 26-24, 25-9, 25-11, in a Division I quarterfinal match on its home court.
