Police charge 3 men with breaking and entering

December 7, 2012

WOONSOCKET – Three men got caught breaking into a house Tuesday after they mistakenly believed no one was home after ringing the doorbell.
The downstairs tenant of the two-family at 387 Park Place was indeed home, however; he simply didn’t answer the doorbell because he didn’t recognize the individual ringing it, he told police.
Moments later, the tenant saw two men scaling the balcony to the second story of the home and he heard their footsteps after they allegedly forced their way in through a window.

City unveils Place Jolicoeur ornament

December 7, 2012

WOONSOCKET – Anita Wilbur had no idea why she’d been summoned to Harris Hall, but when she found out it nearly brought a tear to her eye.
As Wilbur watched, city officials unveiled the 2012 installment of the municipal Christmas ornament, a glass sphere featuring an image of the Place Jolicoeur World War I monument.
The Cumberland Street monument, whose prominent Christian cross was attacked as unconstitutional by a Wisconsin atheist group earlier this year, was named for Jolicoeur’s uncle over 90 years ago.
