WOONSOCKET â€” Landmark Medical Center has laid-off another 22 of its employees but the staffing cuts, following an earlier 31 layoffs, will not diminish the quality of patient care, according to the hospital.
The layoffs were the result of a downturn in the Cass Avenue-based hospital corporationâ€™s patient census and the need to reduce costs, according to Bill Fischer, Landmarkâ€™s spokesman.
LINCOLN â€” A 56-year-old Cumberland woman escaped injury when her 2012 Toyota Highlander struck a deer on Lonsdale Avenue Tuesday morning.
Debra Kociuba of Shelter Lane, Cumberland, had been traveling south on Lonsdale Avenue near Edgehill Avenue, when the deer bolted out of the woods and ran into the side of the Highlander, Patrolman Bradley W. Stewart reported.
At first blush, the task of Cumberland and Woonsocket laying the groundwork for the seasonâ€™s biggest game doesnâ€™t seem entirely daunting â€“ especially since weâ€™re referencing two squads that staged a gridiron tussle merely eight days ago.
With only three days between the semifinals and Sundayâ€™s Division II Super Bowl, the art of familiarity helps to take a little strain off of the preparation process. Time has become a valuable commodity, and if youâ€™re going to step into the ring of fire, what better opponent to have than someone where introductions are not required?
PROVIDENCE â€” To Ryan Kalish, the time and sweat heâ€™s putting in this offseason has a rewarding vibe surrounding it â€“ the kind that provides the 24-year-old Red Sox outfielder with the sort of reassurance that heâ€™ll be ready to answer the bell come spring training.
