WOONSOCKET â€“ With the state Council on Elementary and Secondary Education expected to grant preliminary approval to the proposed RISE Mayoral Academy at a meeting in Providence this afternoon, the Woonsocket Teachers Guild is pulling out all the stops in a last-ditch effort to put the brakes on the proposal.
The teachers union is offering a free bus ride to the meeting to anyone who wants to protest the proposed K-8 regional academy, designed to serve students in Woonsocket, Burrillville and North Smithfield.
WOONSOCKET -- As always after a Woonsocket High game, cheerleaders and volunteer moms set up a buffet table complete with pasta, pizza and other goodies for their players and coaches to gobble.
When the Villa Novans took a considerable amount of time – perhaps 20 minutes – to finally file out of the Barry Field locker rooms and offices, one questioned, “Where are they? The food’s getting cold.”
An instant later, a trainer walked out of the closed door and provided the answer: “They’re still being yelled at.”

PAWTUCKET -- Shea jumped out to a 10-0 lead after one quarter before holding on to defeat Division II-A rival Rogers, 23-21, Friday night at Max Read Field.
Anthony Almeida scored on a 12-yard run midway through the fourth quarter to provide the Raiders with the deciding. Yanique Duarte caught a 45-yard touchdown for Shea and also ran for a 3-yard score. Shea, which led 17-14 at halftime, improves to 2-1 in league play.
CUMBERLAND â€“ For the second time in a month, Cumberland High suffered a crushing defeat.
The last time during a season-opening, non-league affair with St. Raphael Academy, the Clippers recorded a touchdown in the waning seconds, but a 10-yard holding penalty negated it. In the end, they suffered a 21-14 loss to the Saints.
