Ochocinco glad to do things ‘Patriots Way’

August 9, 2011

FOXBOROUGH – Chad Ochocinco is changing his ways. And he’s not making any apologies for it.
To those Twitter followers who claim that the Patriots wide receiver has toned down his activity, Ochocinco has a clear response.
“You have to do it the Patriot Way, the way things are always done here,” Ochocinco said after Tuesday’s practice at Gillette Stadium. “One thing about this city, man, and their sports, all they do is win. So that stuff that I did in the past, there’s no need for it.”

Soup kitchen finds itself homeless

August 9, 2011

WOONSOCKET — One by one, they file past the chow line to pick up a ham sandwich and some soup served up in paper plates and Styrofoam cups. Many vanish after picking up the free meal, while others enjoy a seat at one of the picnic tables under the gazebo at nearby Veterans Memorial Park.
But it's no picnic for Suzanne Billington. It may be her only meal of the day.
“I'm homeless,” she says. “I actually live in a tent in the woods.”
She's not the only one. The organization that provides this basic relief to some of the city's most destitute citizens is on the street, too. Literally.
