PAWTUCKET â€” With the winners of its annual Photo Contest announced on Sunday, the 2013 Pawtucket Arts Festival wrapped up another successful year, said event chairman John Baxter.
â€śFor the third year in a row, we were blessed with extraordinary weather, and it contributed to record crowds,â€ť Baxter stated. â€śThe Arts Festival seems to grow incrementally every year.â€ť
PROVIDENCE â€” A 20-year-old man with the nickname of â€śDamageâ€ť pleaded guilty Tuesday before Superior Court Justice Robert D. Krause to second-degree murder for the July 6, 2012, murder of Joshua Burgo of Pawtucket.
A stalemate in Congress that caused a government shutdown Tuesday for the first time in 17 years came as no surprise for Woonsocket auto mechanic Paul Morin.
â€śI stayed up and watched the entire thing and, personally, Iâ€™m with the Republicans on this one because I believe Obamacare will hurt the country,â€ť Morin says. â€śOf course Iâ€™m upset that we have the first government shutdown in nearly two decades, but Iâ€™m more upset the Democrats didnâ€™t do more to negotiate with the Republicans to avert this.â€ť
