Ward proposes ordinance aimed at ‘fierce’ dogs

October 11, 2012

WOONSOCKET – City Council President John F. Ward is proposing a new ordinance designed to curb the city’s population of pit bulls and other “fierce, dangerous or vicious” dogs.
The most dramatic provision of the measure would be to prohibit any new pit bills bulls in the city after the law is passed. The only legal pit bulls would be those registered by their owners before the law goes into effect, and registration itself would come with onerous new requirements, including a $100,000 worth of liability insurance on the animal.

Navigant donates new rescue boat to WFD

October 11, 2012

WOONSOCKET – The transformation of the Blackstone River into a destination for canoeing, fishing and other recreational activities has been one of the success stories of the region in recent years, but it had a downside for the Woonsocket Fire Department’s rescue boat.
Firefighters have been responding to calls for emergencies on the river with greater frequency, subjecting the rubber vessel to more wear and tear. As a result, the inflatable craft developed holes.
The need for a new boat was apparent and the Navigant Credit Union responded by donating one to the fire department.

No lawsuit yet, but athiest group looking for attorney

October 11, 2012

The Freedom From Religion Foundation stopped short of promising a lawsuit over the cross, but it says it is in the process of seeking an attorney from the area to represent the organization.
More than one individual has contacted the national non-profit seeking to become a plaintiff in such a lawsuit, said Rebecca S. Markert, staff attorney for FFRF.

Villa Novans girls' soccer team bows to Tolman, 6-2

October 10, 2012

WOONSOCKET -- Back on Friday, Sept. 14, Tolman High senior Ashley Clark registered five goals in a rather easy 9-1 thumping of Woonsocket at the McKinnon-Alves Complex.
She failed in her attempt to repeat that feat during the two teams’ Division III-A rematch at Barry Field on rainy Wednesday afternoon.
Still, head coach Bel Pereira didn’t mind a bit; why would he? Clark netted four tallies and senior defender Amber Duhamel did a superb job of defending the Villa Novans’ stellar senior quad-captain and striker Krislyn Godin in the Tigers’ 6-2 triumph.
