CUMBERLAND --- Steve Gordonâ€™s Cumberland High wrestling program has reached the enviable point where the Clippers donâ€™t have to rebuild â€¦ they just reload.
After losing two multiple state champions (the Lariviere twins) to graduation last June, Cumberland might have expected a slight regression this season. There is no regression to be found, at least not yet. (The season still hasnâ€™t reached the halfway point.)
Cumberland improved to 7-0 in Division I with a 56-24 rout of South Kingstown on Wednesday night. The Rebels are one of those good programs that does have to reload.
PROVIDENCE â€” Minutes after prosecuting and defense attorneys had issued their closing remarks regarding suspended Lincoln Patrolman Edward M. Krawetz' trial Wednesday morning, Superior Court Justice Edward C. Clifton informed those in Courtroom 7 he would issue a ruling on Monday, Jan. 23.
Clifton asked both Assistant Attorney General and prosecutor Stephen Regine and defense lawyer John Harwood if they could re-schedule from the previously-set date of Jan. 17, and both indicated they would.
PAWTUCKET â€” The new year could mean a more beautiful and vibrant downtown, thanks to an infusion of $50,000 in federal Community Development Block Grant funds.
The money for the streetscape enhancement project involves the design, purchase and installation of planters and other containers for flowers and plants, bike racks, trashcan enclosures and banners for Main Street between Dexter Street and Roosevelt Avenue. Supporters say the project will benefit downtown merchants and residents by making the area more appealing to live in and visit for shopping, eating, and conducting business.
