PAWTUCKET â While saying they donât agree with all of the school renovation plans as outlined, the City Council on Wednesday approved the first phase of the School Departmentâs Facilities Master Plan that will upgrade Potter-Burns and Nathanael Greene Elementary Schools.
The council gave its approval to Phase 1 of the proposed master plan, with a price tag not to exceed $32 million. Phase 1 calls for a system-wide upgrade of the districtâs technology infrastructure and renovations to the Potter-Burns and Nathanael Greene elementary schools.
PAWTUCKET â Pawtucket Police are trying a new tactic, the âRhode Island Most Wantedâ network, to track down a man accused of committing fraud against a local funeral home.
Pawtucket Police have posted on the online website that they are looking for Martin âMartyâ Szuch, 72, who has addresses in Providence, North Providence and Cranston. Szuch is wanted on a charge of obtaining money under false pretenses in a case that dates back to 2010. He has also allegedly committed similar crimes in the past, police said.
CUMBERLAND â Perhaps two minutes after Cumberland High had sustained a 49-12 dual-meet loss to rival Hendricken in a match to clinch the Division I title, veteran mentor Steve Gordon managed to keep his sense of humor.
When a reporter approached him for a few thoughts Thursday night, he immediately said, âNot right now. Wait a second!â
He approached his wife, Judy, gave her a kiss, handled a couple of other minor details, then relented to an interview.
His first response, with a wide grin: âSorry. Youâve gotta know whatâs truly important!â
LINCOLN â Itâs a 45-minute drive from Pawtucket to Manfredoâs Boxing & Fitness in Narragansett for Toka Kahn-Clary and Thomas Falowo, and because of the 72 miles they have to travel roundtrip to work out with their trainer, Peter Manfredo Sr., the two often carpool back and forth each night.
But tonight, they wonât have to share a ride. Instead, they will make a short trip to the Twin River Event Center and appear in separate six-round bouts on Classic Entertainment & Sports, Inc.âs âHome Sweet Homeâ card.
