WOONSOCKET – The school department was once again looking for budget reductions on Thursday as the School Committee’s budget subcommittee began a review of ways to solve a projected $1.6 million shortfall in the $59.8 million spending plan already sent to Mayor Leo T. Fontaine.
School Committee Chairman Marc A. Dubois said that “everything” possible to be cut in the proposed budget would be looked at in the new round of budget work.

Fontaine takes aim at firefighter overtime

March 18, 2011

WOONSOCKET – In a shot across the bow of the firefighter's union, Mayor Leo T. Fontaine has proposed a shift restructuring of the fire department that would virtually eliminate overtime.
The mayor's proposal would fold the 124 members of the fire department into three rotating platoons instead of four, the current norm. And instead of working an average of 42 hours a week before overtime kicks in, every firefighter would have to work 56.

It's hard to say goodbye to Chris the Amazing

March 17, 2011

If you read newspapers on a regular basis you know that each day can bring both good and bad news.
Those of us who work the news business learn that early on in our jobs and it helps you form a thicker skin to the more troubling news that inevitably comes along.
Most times anyway.
Monday was one of those days when the news going into the paper drew a longer look and sparked that sense of sadness that comes with losing someone you knew.
Christine Nowak, 50, a Call reporter for 15 years, was up there on the proof sheets in an obituary.

MSC girls win series opener with Bay View

March 16, 2011

PROVIDENCE — Mount St. Charles Academy has relied primarily on its offense to get the job done this season.
Wednesday night it was the defense turn to make the headlines.

Remembering author Edwin O'Connor

March 16, 2011

WOONSOCKET — He never smoked or drank. No one can recall that he ever raised his voice in anger. And the khakis and loafers he was fond of wearing were as low-key as his personality.
In many ways the Pulitzer Prize was a crown that never quite fit Edwin O’Connor, author of “The Last Hurrah,” and the city’s most famous Irish-American native son.
And, sadly, perhaps its most forgotten.
“Aside from the catch-phrase ‘last hurrah,’ which has become part of the English language, he really has been forgotten,” says Robert Rose, an independent TV producer from Lincoln.

Millville's John Dean dead at 78

March 16, 2011

MILLVILLE — This week would have been just around the time that John F. Dean Sr. would dye his trademark white beard green in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. It was a springtime tradition that would often turn the heads of passing motorists while Dean, looking like an over-sized leprechaun, was out with his highway crews filling potholes.
Today, rather, it was a somber mood in Millville, as friends and family mourned the passing of 78-year-old Dean, a lifelong resident of Millville and longtime town highway surveyor, who died Tuesday at Landmark Medical Center after a brief illness.
