CRANSTON --- East Providence got the large ice surface it wanted as the host of the first game of its Division III best-of-three semifinal-round series with Tolman on Friday night.
The Townies got a bit of momentum from their âSenior Nightâ festivities that took place prior to the opener, and they also got to dress a full complement of players (20), while the Tigers were only able to suit up a dozen.
But in the end, Tolman got the only thing that mattered the most â a hard-fought triumph over the leagueâs defending champions.
LINCOLN (AP) â An envelope containing white powder sent to the Community College of Rhode Island in Lincoln that forced a campus-wide evacuation has been found to be non-hazardous.
The college canceled classes at the Flanagan campus on Friday afternoon after a professor received an envelope containing an unknown substance. Campus officials notified the Lincoln police and fire departments.
The school said later the substance was found to be a sugar-based product. A sample is being sent to the state Department of Health for further testing.
PAWTUCKET â The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RI DOT) will temporarily close Exit 27 (downtown) from I-95 southbound in Pawtucket for approximately six weeks beginning Monday, March 18.
This closure will allow for the demolition of the temporary exit ramp, as well as the transition to the permanent exit to downtown Pawtucket through the Pawtucket River Bridge Replacement Project.
PAWTUCKET â Despite a name like âRebels,â Jeanne Michaud says she wants to attract a more peaceful clientele to the Smithfield Avenue bar that is currently known as Corina's Pub.
Michaud, of Uxbridge, Mass., appeared at a public hearing on Wednesday before the City Council's Board of License Commissioners to speak about her request to obtain a transfer of liquor and food licenses. She told the board that she plans to lease the existing space to operate a pub, featuring live music, with her daughter.
