February 1, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Gov. Chafee’s proposed $7.9 billion state budget includes a plum the city’s been grasping at for years — $2.6 million to restore long-neglected World War II Veterans Memorial State Park.
Mayor Leo T. Fontaine said the funds were included in the spending package Chafee proposes for the state Department of Environmental Management after an intense lobbying campaign by city officials.

WOONSOCKET – There was a bonus for the police at the end of a trail that led to a man wanted for domestic assault. Just as officers closed in on Steve E. Beaulieu, another man was tossing a backpack containing $1,450 worth of cocaine and marijuana out the window, police said.
The episode unfolded in Apt. No. 3 at 174 Robinson St. Tuesday, said Detective Lt. Eugene Jalette, the police spokesman.
