Museum enables educators to teach outside the classroom

November 24, 2012

WOONSOCKET — It is certainly an advantage to have a museum in town when it comes to expanding educational opportunities for a community’s youth.
Staff members at the Museum of Work and Culture here in Woonsocket are also aware that research and planning are required for local teachers to use a museum as the best educational resource possible.
That’s why a group of local fifth-grade teachers sat with the museum’s education coordinator, Elizabeth Maynard, in the building’s upstairs conference room last week to talk about their past and future visits to the Market Square facility.

RI to foreclose to Glenark, but mayor says city is owed $200K

November 24, 2012

WOONSOCKET – Rhode Island Housing, the owner of Glenark Landing, is taking the 67-unit, subsidized housing complex into foreclosure.
But Mayor Leo T. Fontaine says the state agency owes the city over $200,000, money lent to the original developers of the mill-to-apartment conversion project in 1988.
Fontaine said foreclosure would wipe out the debt, but the city might not give up so easily. The mayor wants the City Council to explore its options at a briefing session Monday night, including the possibility of legal action.
