January 10, 2012

The Townies’ ‘D’ forced the Novans to commit the bulk of their 20 turnovers and played a big role in an 18-point run in the first half by keeping their hosts scoreless for eight-plus minutes, and in the process, helping produce a 54-39 triumph.

WOONSOCKET — If all goes according to plan, a prominent traffic island will soon feature a permanent display of public art honoring the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. and his message of racial tolerance.
The unique display at the junction of Mason and South Main streets will depict a likeness of the slain civil rights leader ministering to a half-dozen children and adults. The figures are reminiscent of the pop-up silhouettes of storybook art, except in this case they’ll be carved from thick plate steel and slightly bigger than life size, weighing hundreds of pounds each.
