January 20, 2014

WOONSOCKET — Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard: It’s got a nice ring to it, says Emma Dandy, chairwoman of the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Committee.

“That’s our common task, to get this named Martin Luther King Boulevard,” she told a crowd gathered for a memorial service at the King Memorial Garden on South Main Street yesterday.

House District 49 primary today

January 20, 2014

WOONSOCKET – Don’t forget to vote in today’s Democratic primary for the House District 49 seat previously held by Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt.
Because the primary is limited to electors who live within the geographic boundaries of District 49, the only polling places open are four sites within the district.

They are Crepeau Court, 100 Front St.; John F. Kennedy Manor, 547 Clinton St.; Park View Manor, 218 Pond St.; and Fairmont Heights, 525 Second Ave.

Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m., according to the Board of Canvassers.
