BURRILLVILLE â€“ The school bus company hired by the Burrillville School District two years ago is doing more than making sure Burrillvilleâ€™s students get to school on time and back home safe.
Theyâ€™re helping the girls at Burrillville High School look their best at prom time.
To help ease the financial burden of having to come up with enough money to buy expensive prom dresses that can cost as much as $400, Durham School Services is collecting gently used prom and cocktail dresses, evening gowns, and shoes and accessories donated by local businesses, to help cash-starved students.

WOONSOCKET â€” Lawyers for Raymond D. Tempest Sr. are asking a Superior Court judge to throw out his second-degree murder conviction in the grisly 1982 bludgeoning death of a young Providence Street woman, saying DNA from hair the victim was clutching in her hand came from someone other than Tempest and proves he wasnâ€™t the assailant.
PAWTUCKET â€“ â€śChampions Riseâ€ť is once again en vogue at McCoy Stadium. This time, though, the popular slogan is not directly paying homage to the buildingâ€™s primary tenants.
Last year, â€śChampions Riseâ€ť was synonymous with the Pawtucket Red Sox and the franchiseâ€™s 2012 Governorsâ€™ Cup title. As patrons passed through the main entrance at McCoy, they were greeted by a colossal banner that proved a fitting salute to a fitting champion.
PAWTUCKET â€“ As Kevin Boles discovered this spring, the day-to-day duties and responsibilities of managing the Pawtucket Red Sox will come in good time.
Reached over the weekend from Fort Myers, Boles noted that he and PawSox coach Bruce Crabbe remained with the parent club until the near completion of Grapefruit League play. Keeping the Triple-A manager around the big-league atmosphere is a fairly common practice for the Red Sox, as Boles recalled that his PawSox predecessor, Gary DiSarcina, reported to the minors just as camp was set to conclude.
