Feeding the hungry with metal

November 17, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Luigi Porreca Jr. is not a magician, but he and his father are going to turn metal into food for the poor this year — again.
The proprietors of L&R Scrap Metal Co. are sponsoring the 2nd Annual Help Feed the Hungry for the Holidays event, which raised enough cash to provide about 500 dinners for the hungry last year.
“This year we hope to make it a thousand,” says Porreca.
But L&R needs your help — or at least your unwanted appliances — to make it happen.

Mazzone: Passion was on display every step of the way at girls' volleyball finals

November 15, 2011

It's often said that passion in athletics among our youths has been lost. With all the distractions that kids have nowadays, such as video games, computers and iPods, the younger generation has been more inclined to sit down and punch keys or work a remote than dedicate themselves to a sport (or sports).
The decline in roster numbers and the empty fields and basketball courts on a daily basis has proven that some of that is true.
But the passion hasn't disappeared completely. There is still that urge to test one's strength to its physical and mental limits among some of our youths.
