Obama, Romney clash on economy in first debate

October 3, 2012

DENVER — In a showdown at close quarters, President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney sparred aggressively in their first campaign debate Wednesday night over taxes, deficits and strong steps needed to create jobs in a sputtering national economy. "The status quo is not going to cut it," declared the challenger.
Obama in turn accused his rival of seeking to "double down" on economic policies that actually led to the devastating national downturn four years ago — and of evasiveness on details for Romney proposals on tax changes, health care, Wall Street regulation and more.

WOONSOCKET — A 24-year-old city man was charged with domestic assault by strangulation, domestic kidnapping and other charges. Police said they lodged the charges against Shane Michael Hall after speaking to officers from Franklin, Mass. on Monday.
The Massachusetts officers said the victim, a 19-year-old woman, told them she had been assaulted by Hall in Franklin that same day and they were giving her a courtesy ride back to Woonsocket. When they interviewed her, Franklin police said, the woman also revealed she had been brutally strangled by Hall in Woonsocket on Sept. 26.

Oily rags cause fire at Mendon Road medical building

October 3, 2012

WOONSOCKET – Oil-soaked rags left behind by a painter have been blamed for causing an overnight fire Wednesday that gutted a medical office building on Mendon Road.
“The investigation is complete and it’s being ruled accidental,” said Woonsocket Fire Capt. Michael A. Morin, assistant deputy state fire marshal. “Oil-soaked rags are a spontaneous combustion hazard because, as the oil oxidizes, heat is released. If the heat is not dissipated, it can build up and ignite the rags.”
