WOONSOCKET â€” A rash of car vandalisms in several city neighborhoods over the past week has police looking for help in identifying anyone who may be responsible for the incidents.
PROVIDENCE â€” No one ever said the road to postseason glory was easy. Just ask Mount St. Charles, which needed overtime to hold off Rogers, 59-52, Wednesday night in the Division II semifinals at Rhode Island Collegeâ€™s Murray Center. The Mounties dominated the extra session, holding the Vikings to just one field goal while hitting seven free throws.
This might be Stephen Sheaâ€™s first season as a head coach, but the Mount St. Charles Academy mentor has been around Rhode Islandâ€™s girlsâ€™ hockey scene for the past several years as an assistant coach for the Mounties.
That being said, heâ€™s seen plenty of postseason action, but he doesnâ€™t recall seeing a battle for the state championship as balanced and competitive as the one thatâ€™s unfolding this season.

PROVIDENCE â€” Pawtucket Mayor Donald Grebien liked a lot of what he heard from Gov. Lincoln Chafee's first major presentation â€” a combined State of the State address and budget speech.
â€śIt means $800,000 for Pawtucket this year and $1.6 million next year,â€ť Grebien said in the House of Representatives chamber after the governor spoke. â€śIt comes with some strings attached, but in this tough economy, this benefits the city and education.â€ť
