City inches toward unified health plan

April 18, 2012

WOONSOCKET – The City Council took a tentative first step this week toward trading in a hodgepodge of health care products the city offers various workers for a unified plan that will cover all classes of employees, including teachers, police, firefighters and municipal workers.
The idea was rolled out by Councilman Daniel Gendron as point of departure for continued exploration of the concept. Other members of the council quickly embraced the idea, which would, finance officials say, cut the cash-strapped city’s hefty health care costs.

Mount collects just four hits in loss to SRA, Cesino

April 18, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Late last week, St. Raphael Academy head coach Tom “Saar” Sorrentine explained to his senior ace, Nick Cesino, that he would draw the start when the Saints took on host Mount St. Charles on Wednesday morning.
He also told the righthander that the Mounties' infield contained a rather tall mound, and suggested he get to know it better over the weekend.
Cesino followed his mentor's order and threw some pitches from the foreign rubber on Sunday, and it became rather obvious as the innings passed he had become rather familiar with it.
