WOONSOCKET â€” The fiscal year is far from complete but School Superintendent Giovanna Donoyan told the School Committee last week early spending projections indicate some improvement over past school budget practices.
The news comes after the school department overspent its budget by approximately $7 million last year while not maintaining clear projections on its incurred costs and unforeseen expenses. The past deficit is expected to be worked out under the five-year city spending plan now being prepared by the state-appointed Budget Commission running city affairs.
GLOCESTER â€” While most outdoor farmers markets have closed down for the winter, you can still get seasonal vegetables and produce as well as preserves, fresh eggs and baked goods at Glocester's Northwest Farmers Market, an indoor farmers market held Sundays in Chepachet during the winter months.

The farmers market includes live acoustic music starting at 10 a.m.
WOONSOCKET -- It wasnâ€™t that long ago, June 3 to be precise, that then-Woonsocket High junior Kaylnn Pitts took the jumping events at the R.I. Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Brown Stadium by storm.
She not only won the triple jump with a leap of 37-4 Âľ, but also took third in the high jump (5-3) and teamed with Jasmine White, Marrisa Gelinas and Latoya Dythe to gain fourth in the 4 x 100-meter relay (50.67).
Pitts finished 10th in the long jump (16-1), but that was one placement sheâ€™d rather forget.
If the end game was to create a specific website that shines light on Rhode Island high school athletics, then Tommy Dâ€™Angelo succeeded.
Wish to know which school has captured the most championships in R.I. Interscholastic League history? Dâ€™Angeloâ€™s vision and ultimate creation â€“ www.rihssports.com â€“ contains the answer along with the exact amount. The tally extends to every school thatâ€™s ever won a title.
