Cumberland bike shop owner seeking marrow donor for niece

March 9, 2014

CUMBERLAND — Michael Iafrate will admit that he didn’t give childhood leukemia much thought until it touched his own family. Iafrate knew about the illness and its impact on children, but like many people, didn’t have a connection that would show him what such an illness can do to a family.

That is not until his niece, Anna Getner, 9, of Wilton, Conn., became ill with ALL leukemia late last year, and his family became involved in trying to get her the option of a bone marrow transplant if that becomes necessary.

WPD lands two Hummers, and the price was right: $0

March 8, 2014

WOONSOCKET – It’s okay if you call them Hummers – everyone will. But the fact is, those squat, camouflage-patterned 4-by-4s you may have seen parked outside police headquarters the last couple of days are bona fide High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicles, or HMMWVs – equipment manufactured for the Army that inspired the mainstream consumer cousin.

The Woonsocket Police Department is now in possession of two of the military vehicles, worth about $60,000 each.

This is what the WPD paid: The Bubble. As in zero, zilch, nada.
