The non-league contest isn’t intended to reopen still-fresh wounds or provide a semblance of closure to the cruel sequence of events that shattered the lives of those affected by the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

PAWTUCKET — Despite discussions and individual lobbying for different options, the City Council on Tuesday postponed any decision on a fix for the unfunded police and firefighters' pension plan.
At a special session of the City Council that followed a Finance Committee meeting, the council voted to table its decision on a new funding option that passed by a slim margin. The council will take up the matter at its next regular council meeting that is scheduled for April 24 at City Hall.
