Local cops walk a beat for their fallen brothers

April 19, 2014

WOONSOCKET – Despite an early fundraising setback, COPS Walk is forging ahead this spring and hopes to outstrip last year’s totals, said Lt. Edward Cunanan.

“We’ve been lucky,” he says. “For each of the last several years, we’ve raised more money than the year before.”

It will be harder than ever to maintain the streak, says Cunanan, but participants are still going to try. Organizers have two events scheduled in the days ahead, including a “Spring Fling” at Ciro’s Tavern on Cherry on April 26 and a comedy dinner at the Father Marot CYO Center on May 3.

Unfinished business in Boston

April 19, 2014

MILLVILLE – For Justin O’Connell, 2013 was supposed to be The Year.
After years of training, after the struggle just to learn how to walk again, that was the year he was supposed to complete his first marathon – the Boston Marathon.

As he reached Mile 24, just a couple short of the finish line, O’Connell saw the cell phones come out and people talking in excited, panicky tones. Soon word had spread among the marathoners: Some kind of bombs had exploded near the finish line. Then the fences went up, the race halted.
