Seniors seek to save their senior center

September 3, 2011

MILLVILLE — It was a moment that Millville's senior citizens had been waiting years for. The town's brand new Senior Center opened in June of 2007 and, for the first time, there was a bigger, more modern space where they could get their blood pressure checked, participate in a knitting groups or exercise classes or get information about Social Security benefits.
Now, that same building is slated to shut its doors on Dec. 31 due to budget cuts and a decision by voters in June to reject two Proposition 2½ override ballot questions.

PawSox seek division title on Saturday night

September 2, 2011

PAWTUCKET – The Pawtucket Red Sox will have to wait just a little bit longer to call themselves Northern Division champions.
The PawSox kept up their end of the bargain after holding on for a 4-3 win against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Friday night at McCoy Stadium. Thanks to Lehigh Valley staging a 2-1 walk-off win over Buffalo, the magic number for the PawSox to officially clinch the division stands at a lone game.
