WOONSOCKET â€“ The executive director of the Woonsocket Housing Authority has been placed on unpaid leave amid allegations of â€śbullyingâ€ť workers and making offensive remarks to female workers.
The Board of Housing Commissioners suspended Kulik for 30 days and ordered him to seek sensitivity training before heâ€™s allowed to return to work, on probation, Jan. 2, sources close to the commission told The Call.
While Tuesdayâ€™s snow was hardly the stuff of legend, it was a reminder winter is here and that bigger and more powerful storms may be just around just around the corner, including one that could hit the region as early as this weekend.
With the Greater Woonsocket area experiencing its first snowfall of the season â€” inland areas over southern Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts were expected to see snow totals in the 1-to-3 inch range â€“ folks suddenly found themselves in winter weather mode yesterday dealing with just enough snow to make driveways slippery.
Deb Engels seemed remarkably upbeat as she readied her Cumberland High girls' hoop team for a two-plus hour practice at the Wellness Center on Monday afternoon.
You'd figure her mind-set instead would border on concern, given the fact she'll return only one starter â€“ her daughter Kate â€“ from a team that closed last year's Division I-North campaign with a dismal 4-14 mark.
The league should be highly-competitive once more, but Engels expects this season's crop to be more than capable of doing some damage.
