PROVIDENCE — With cities on the brink of insolvency and joblessness stubbornly high, Rhode Island lawmakers returning for a new legislative session say 2012 is shaping up to be a pivotal year.
Just as they spent last year finding ways to fix the state's fiscal problems, lawmakers say 2012 must be devoted to helping cities and towns weather a fiscal crisis that shows few signs of abating.
“The fiscal integrity of the municipalities is going to be the year's big issue,” said House Speaker Gordon Fox, D-Providence. “This is make-it or break-it time.”

BOSTON --- After watching his father and younger brother make news on the baseball diamond last summer with the New England champion Cumberland American Little League all-star team, Brian Belisle got an opportunity to steal the show on one of baseball’s most historic ballfields on Monday night.
But Belisle did so with a hockey stick, not a bat and glove, with his Mount St. Charles Academy teammates at Fenway Park in their “Frozen Fenway 2012” duel against Cathedral High of Springfield, Mass., and the junior center came through with the best game of his young high school career.
