PAWTUCKET â€” You could see it on the tired but happy faces of Peaches, Chloe, Kevin, Charlie, Tinkerbelle, Oso, Lucy and Willow Spitfire: the cityâ€™s new dog park is going to be a howling success.
On Saturday morning, the main proponents of the dog park, including City Councilors Albert Vitali, Mark Wildenhain and Christopher Oâ€™Neill, Economic and Cultural Affairs Officer Herb Weiss, Animal Control Director John Holmes, Sheryl Rennick and her daughter, Mackenzie, and others joined Mayor Donald Grebien for a ceremonial â€śleash cuttingâ€ť to officially open the venue.
PAWTUCKET â€” Yesterday marked the 164th day of the year, the date of the great Lewis and Clark expedition and the graduation of 195 students from Charles E. Shea High School.
At 6 p.m. the atmosphere in Pawtucket was one to be remembered. Although the weather was overcast and gloomy, not a face in the crowd of soon-to-be graduates showed it. Students were overjoyed at the expedition that they were about to embark on, the moment that would forever be a piece of their past: their high school graduation.
PROVIDENCE â€” It was a match made in heaven (or, more accurately, the Statehouse): Rhode Islanders love the Boston Red Sox and are famously crazy about their license plates. Now they can have the best of both worlds.
Accompanied by Bosox President Larry Lucchino and legislative leaders on Monday, Gov. Lincoln Chafee visited Hasbro Childrenâ€™s Hospital Monday to sign legislation creating special green license plates patterned after Fenway Parkâ€™s Green Monster and carrying the Red Sox logo next to the plate number.
