American in the New England portion of the Eastern Regional Tournament.
LINCOLN â€” Ron Truppa sat at a table in his parents' expansive, luxurious home late Tuesday morning and admitted, with a chuckle, that he one day aspired to be the governor of Rhode Island.
He never quite achieved that lofty position, though says he's having a blast as a Hollywood film writer, producer and director.
The 36-year-old former Lincolnite also owns TRUPPA Entertainment, a production company based in Sherman Oaks, Calif. that produces films, television pitches, scripts, public service announcements and commercials.
LINCOLN â€“ The victim of an execution-style slaying whose body was found in the trunk of a car parked at the edge of Lincoln Woods State Park Wednesday has been identified as Ronny Almonte.

With hands tied behind his back with a strip of cloth and multiple gunshot wounds to the head, Almonte's body was found in the trunk of a Chevy Impala parked on the shoulder of Twin River Road after a park caretaker saw blood on the bumper of the abandoned vehicle.
