LINCOLN â€” Davies Tech junior Jorge Bonilla has a code he lives by, and that's to learn everything he can not only about his major interests, but new and exciting information as well.
That's why the Central Falls resident was so busy running around at the eighth annual Davies Community Showcase/Cabaret, held at the school Thursday night.
One minute, he played photographer, and the next, he had hustled to the Debate Club's table. Moments later, he stood at the Robotics Club table with classmate and fellow member Nate Hindman explaining how the six-wheeled â€śZeusâ€ť worked.

REHOBOTH - Diane E. (Coe) Correia, 67, formerly of Pawtucket, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, May 26, 2011. She was the beloved wife of the late Manuel Correia.

Diane was a quality control inspector at Hasbro until retiring. She loved NASCAR and was a member of the Rehoboth Senior Center.
CENTRAL FALLS â€“ The city's Special Investigations Unit raided yet another brothel, this one at 34 Watson St., on Monday, and in the process arrested a city man and a New Jersey woman on respective charges of pandering and prostitution.
Police took into custody 27-year-old Steven Castillo, who hails from the city and is a Superior Court violator. Because of that violation from a previous delivery charge, he received a five-year sentence. He also is being held on $10,000 surety bail for the new count of pandering, and has a pre-arraignment conference slated for July 28.
CUMBERLAND â€“ From the time Derrick Watson was a mere six-year-old boy, his mother always taught him â€śNothing beats a failure but a try.â€ť
That's just one reason he's organized a community group called â€śThe Concerned Citizens of Valley Falls â€“ Save Our Post Office.â€ť
When he found out the Valley Falls Post Office indeed would shut its doors for business back on May 5, he immediately began working on an appeal.
PAWTUCKET â€“ An eight-game homestand got off to a bland start as the Pawtucket Red Sox fell to Indianapolis, 4-3, Thursday at a fog-laden McCoy Stadium.
The contestâ€™s pace matched the pea soup fog that engulfed the ballpark by the middle innings. Eventually the fog lifted to the point where the outfielders could be identified, but its disappearance did little to ignite a rally out of the PawSox, who were coming off a 5-3 road trip.
PAWTUCKET â€” St. Raphael Academy followed up one of its best games of the season with arguably its worst on Thursday afternoon and paid for it.
The price the Saints paid? A demotion to the losersâ€™ bracket of the Division I playoffs and a battle for their playoff lives today against East Greenwich High.
Fourteenth-seeded Cranston East High took advantage of six infield errors and a lack of timely hitting by the Saints and used that to bus out of Vets Park with a 6-1 triumph that puts the Thunderbolts one win away from sewing up the Region 3 portion of the tournament.
PAWTUCKET â€” Hideki Okajima kicked off his second tour of duty with the PawSox Thursday, admitting that McCoy Stadium was the last place he expected to set foot in. Such sentiment can be linked to the events of last Friday, when Boston designated the 35-year-old reliever for assignment.
