PROVIDENCE â€“ Local talk radio hosts are having no end of fun with a Florida TV stationâ€™s identification of Attorney General Peter Kilmartin as a â€śSarasota resident,â€ť and now state Sen. Dawson Hodgson, a Republican candidate for attorney general, is adding questions of his own.
Kilmartin, whose full-time residence is in Pawtucket, has a vacation home in Sarasota where he stayed during a recent January vacation. While there, he and his wife, Kristine, visited the Sarasota Arts Festival, and he was buttonholed by a local TV reporter for a comment on the event.
CENTRAL FALLS â€” The body of the person found inside a car that had been submerged in the Blackstone River has been identified as Angela Rivera, a 62-year-old Pawtucket woman who had been reported missing in March 2011.
The car, a light blue Toyota Camry, had been spotted underwater on Tuesday morning by state employees who had been doing work on a barge in and around the underside of the bridge near 1420 Broad St. When the vehicle was towed from the water, it was determined that a body was inside.
Full story appears on page A1 of today's Times.
PAWTUCKET â€“ An accurate weather service forecast, a parking ban and a â€śno schoolâ€ť call helped the cityâ€™s Department of Public Works to get a good handle on Wednesdayâ€™s snowstorm.
By mid-morning, most of Pawtucketâ€™s roads were very passable and by lunchtime, many were down to the pavement, as temperatures warmed up and the snow tapered off.
