D-II playoffs overshadowing T-Day games?

November 16, 2010

The Division II football playoffs usually provide the most interesting competition every season when Rhode Island teams begin competing for Super Bowl berths.
D-II holds a big advantage over the other three divisions because it is the state’s largest league (16 teams). It invites eight teams to the playoffs instead of the four we find in other divisions. Its quarterfinals are held in the second week of November while the regular season is still going on elsewhere.

November 15, 2010

WOONSOCKET — Mayor Leo T. Fontaine has won his bid for a court order directing the school department to balance its budget, at least for now.
Judge Bennett R. Gallo issued the “writ of mandamus” on Friday and specified in the ruling that school officials must “adopt and adhere to a balanced school budget for fiscal 2011.”
The order also directs the school department to prepare a corrective action plan “that limits spending to the amount actually appropriated for fiscal year 2011 and otherwise complies with all statutory requirements.”

So the Woonsocket Boxing Club fighter did the next best thing. He hopped in his car, put his championship belt in his back seat, and toured the area to show his grand prize to as many friends and family members as he possibly could.
