Ed Hunt knows that all three subdivisions in this yearâ€™s Division I circuit are going to be tough, but not as difficult as the battles awaiting his Lincoln team in the Division I-North ranks.
â€śThere are no weak sisters in our division,â€ť the veteran coach said before his Lionsâ€™ workout on Monday afternoon. â€śI think we have the toughest division from top to bottom, whereas most of the other divisions, theyâ€™re balanced this year, but they still probably have four good teams.â€ť
For the past two years, race director Kerri Stenovitch has had no problem deciding on a rightful beneficiary for the Phantom Farms Planting Footprints 5K road race. Considering that the 3.1-mile event takes place at the popular Cumberland apple orchard, most of the proceeds went to the R.I. Fruit Growers Association.
Stenovitch, a former star runner for St. Raphael Academy in the early 1990s, has decided on a new cause for this Sundayâ€™s race.
And like the previous one, this one truly made sense.
PAWTUCKET â€” Bank of New York Mellon Corp. has notified state labor officials that it plans to lay-off 103 employees as it closes its Pawtucket office and moves to another site in Massachusetts.
The New York-based financial services company told state officials under the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act that the workers at the office at 100 Freight St. will lose their jobs in three phases, between June 6 and Oct. 30. The bank acquired the office last July.
