December 11, 2011

NORTH SMITHFIELD — When Ron Carter was an older teen-ager back in the late 1970s, he often would make the short trek from his home with his dad, Fred, to Lindy's Tavern in Forestdale just to enjoy a few beers and shoot some pool with pals.
It was quite the town hangout back then, a place where folks would go to imbibe, order a sandwich or watch the Red Sox or Bruins on the tiny TV above the bar; this was back when Boston's WSBK Ch. 38 televised the B's.

December 11, 2011

MILLVILLE — With the senior center slated to shut its doors on Dec. 31 due to budget cuts, town senior advocates may have dodged a bullet and won a temporary reprieve in the wake of the news that an unidentified sum of money has been bequeathed to the center from the estate of an unnamed source.
