Public pension plan pitched

October 18, 2011

PROVIDENCE — The die is cast.
A massive 200-page bill, months in the making, to radically change public employee retirement payments for everyone from the newly-hired worker to the longest-surviving pensioner was finally introduced in both the House and Senate on Tuesday, ending an extended period of public expectation and speculation.

City fire blamed on arson

October 18, 2011

WOONSOCKET — The state fire marshal has concluded that arson was the cause of a three-alarm fire that heavily damaged a vacant six-family house at 368 East School St. Monday night.
Deputy State Fire Marshal Lt. Michael Morin of the Woonsocket Fire Department said a $5,000 reward is now offered for information leading to the arrest of the perpetrator.
The arson conclusion was based, in part, on where the fire started, evidence of prior illegal entry, and the fact that all utilities had been cut off, said Morin.
