PROVIDENCE â€“ The pomp and circumstance of the opening of the General Assembly has faded away and now lawmakers are settling into the routine of legislating.
Two of the hot-button social issues expected to be near the top of the legislative agenda this session â€“ gay marriage and illegal immigration â€“ are already percolating in the Assemblyâ€™s first week. Woonsocket Rep. Jon Brien is playing a lead role in both.
PAWTUCKET â€” A concept that began back in 2001 when two prominent professionals approached the mayor about finding ways to encourage business development has grown into a force that has changed and shaped the city. Now in its 10th year, The Pawtucket Foundation gave itself a well-deserved â€śpat on the backâ€ť Thursday night with a spirited anniversary celebration at The Met.
PAWTUCKET â€“ Nina Morey isnâ€™t about to complain about a win after her Mount St. Charles squad held on for a down-to-the-last possession 33-31 decision against Tolman on Friday.
That said, the MSC head coach came away with the understanding that the Mounties were very fortunate to waltz out of the Donaldson Memorial Gymnasium with the higher point total.
â€śIâ€™m glad that we had the ability to hang on,â€ť said Morey, â€śbut a little more time for (Tolman) and it may have been a different story.â€ť
PAWTUCKET --- Tolman High dearly needed this victory.
Junior Kody Casavant and freshman Jared Pedro each scored a pair of goals and the Tigersâ€™ defense turned in a solid showing over the final two periods to help nail down a 5-3 triumph over West Warwick High on Friday night in their hard-hitting Division III meeting at Lynch Arena.
Tolman, which is now 4-3 and in fourth place in the nine-team division, was coming off ugly back-to-back defeats to Cranston East and Mount Hope that saw the Tigers play both games shorthanded and allow a total of 14 goals.
