PAWTUCKET â€” There has been a curfew in place for the city's youth for 16 years, but do they know about it? Some who are involved with juveniles and teens say that more should be done to get the word out.
Since 1994, the city has had two ordinances on the books aimed at keeping youths off the streets during the late night or early morning hours. One calls for any juvenile under the age of 16 to be home between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., and the other requires that any juvenile 16 years of age or older and under the age of 18 to be home between midnight and 5 a.m.
CENTRAL FALLS â€” Mo Jackson has endured only a few rebuilding years during a decade-plus tenure as the head coach of Central Falls, but youâ€™d be hard-pressed to find any of those seasons as difficult as this one.
With just four returnees and a wealth of first-year players and junior varsity call-ups at his disposal, Jackson saw his inexperienced squad battle through a lot of growing pains and wrap up its Division IV season with a 2-6 record.
