WOONSOCKET â€” After his regular classes at Woonsocket High School, Jamel Williams usually heads over to the RiverzEdge Arts Project in Market Square for hands-on training in silk-screen printing. But he couldn't make it yesterday.
He was too busy being honored by first lady Michelle Obama in Washington, D.C.
In a ceremony at the White House, the first lady bestowed the 2010 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Awards on 15 organizations, including RiverzEdge and the Providence-based Community Music Works.
LINCOLN â€” As she readied herself for school Tuesday morning, Lincoln High junior Taylor Jutras argued vehemently with her mother, Tammy, about a mere two dollars. When â€śMaâ€ť wouldn't budge on the request, she stormed out of the house â€śin a huff.â€ť
About five hours later, Taylor admitted she had texted her mom several times, promising she was sorry for her behavior and understood Tammy's stance on the matter.
