Deputy fire chiefs retire

July 17, 2011

WOONSOCKET — They have worked in city fire stations for over 30 years and Woonsocket Fire Department Deputy Chiefs Thomas F. Williams and Marcel M. Bacon know their careers involved much more than showing up at a job each day.
Doing the job of a firefighter or rescue EMT requires frequent training, good leadership and most of all team work.
It also helps to have a bit of luck or Divine intervention on your side when the tough spots come along.

St. Blaise's gearing up for 50th anniversary celebration

July 17, 2011

BELLINGHAM - The St. Blaise Catholic Church has a lot to celebrate. Fifty years, to be exact.
Fifty years of baptisms and funerals, weddings and ordinations, first communions and confirmations. But most of all, 50 years of coming together week after week to celebrate a faith that has built and bound a community.
Now, parishioners of St. Blaise Church are busy getting ready and making final preparations to mark the occasion of the church's Golden Jubilee in 2012.

Fire at the old RMV building

July 17, 2011

WOONSOCKET – A quick response by city firefighters to an early morning fire Saturday may well have saved a Main Street landmark.
A passerby reported smoke coming from the former Rhode Island Hospital Trust building at 162 Main St. at around 3:16 a.m. and got a full response from city fire stations, Deputy Chief Thomas F. Williams reported Saturday.
The ornately-designed bank building located across the street from the city’s historic Harris Hall municipal offices was once the state Registry of Motor Vehicles headquarters in the city but has been vacant and up for sale for several years.

Crawford hitless, goes home early

July 16, 2011

PAWTUCKET – The second and final game of Carl Crawford’s rehab assignment with the Pawtucket Red Sox left much to be desired.
An 0-for-3 showing at the plate and no action in left field in the PawSox’s 11-8 loss to the Durham Bulls on Saturday at McCoy Stadium wasn’t the evening Crawford envisioned before rejoining the Boston Red Sox. Nonetheless, the left fielder departed Pawtucket with at least one reason for optimism: a healthy left hamstring.
