SMITHFIELD â Bryant University unveiled its new Physician Assistant Learning Center at the Route 7 campus on Monday, and what a new facility it is.
Bryant President Ronald K. Machtley said the approximate $7 million addition to the schoolâs domed Unistructure at the heart of the campus is part of the universityâs expanding focus into healthcare careers.
âIt is just part of what you will see as we begin to roll out our School of Health Sciences programs,â Machtley said before a ribbon was cut as part of a tour of the new wing.
The season is winding down. We are entering the final week of the regular season. After that, conference tournaments will start the following weekend. Selection Sunday is March 15th, less than 2 weeks away. Shortly after Selection Sunday, all will be right in the world. People will be printing out brackets and filling them out at their desk. Inevitably, Jan from accounting will win your office pool by picking her favorite mascots and everyone will be in disbelief. It has been an exciting regular season thus far and boy do we still have the best ahead of us.
WOONSOCKET â The Woonsocket Police Department will say a fond goodbye to one of its own today during funeral services for former Police Chief Herve B. Landreville.
Landreville, a âcopâs cop,â as he was described by those who knew him on Sunday, died at the age of 62, Feb. 24, following an illness. He was the husband of Mary (Collins) Landreville, whom he had married on Feb. 15, 1997, and spent his post-police career time with enjoying boating on Narragansett Bay and running his local small businesses.
BURRILLVILLE â The troubled woman behind the convenience store is all by herself, but from her behavior it seems as if sheâs involved in a heated dispute with someone only she can see. Sheâs gesticulating wildly, arguing a blue streak with her invisible nemesis.
âMaâam! Whatâs going on today?â Detective Ryan Hughes yells in a loud, affirmative tone. âYou hearing voices?
âShut up!â the troubled woman screams back. âStay away from me!â
