Cops to panel: Let us keep our manpower

June 6, 2012

WOONSOCKET — As the newly seated Budget Commission begins eyeing possible cuts in personnel, Police Chief Tom Carey says he intends to lobby members to let the manpower cap on the Woonsocket Police Department phase out as scheduled at the end of the month.
The result of collective bargaining between the city and the International Brotherhood of Police Officers, the cap went into effect on Dec. 30, 2011, restricting manpower to 93 officers, eight fewer than the union’s contract normally allows.

Arts and crafts festival Saturday at the Monastery

June 6, 2012

CUMBERLAND — The town's Monastery property will be on display with all its history when the sixth Annual Cumberland Arts and Crafts Festival is held there this weekend. More than 50 artists and crafters will be setting up booths near the Cumberland Senior Center building at the Monastery on Saturday for what organizers are hoping will be a nice day outdoors for the festival's visitors.
Lee Drury, Senior Center Director, said the festival is something the event's sponsors have been trying to grow each year as a rival to other popular arts and crafts events later in the season.
