Ornament keeps landmark alive

December 17, 2011

WOONSOCKET – Once the largest rubber mill in the world, the Alice Mill collapsed in a gale of fire this spring, another icon of the city’s industrial heritage laid to waste.
But the landmark lives on as the inspiration for this season’s installment of the municipal Christmas tree ornament. Mayor Leo T. Fontaine says he could think of no better tribute to a site that has touched so many generations of city residents and their families.

Kilties outrun Villa Novans

December 16, 2011

WOONSOCKET – Woonsocket High has some pieces of the puzzle in place but seems to be lacking one key position that would create a competent offensive unit.

Teamwork has been key to Lady Novans' success

December 15, 2011

WOONSOCKET — George Coderre likes to sit on the bench during Woonsocket High basketball games and let his players, usually his point guard, run the offense, calling out which plays to run against a specific defense.
“Every coach has their own style,” Coderre was saying Wednesday afternoon. “I am extremely vocal and demonstrative during practice. In games, I try to sit down and just let the players feed off of each other. I do make some noise during games but I try to let the kids recognize defenses and call their own plays.”

December 15, 2011

WOONSOCKET – There was yet another dose of sobering financial news for the School Department yesterday as Finance Director Thomas M. Bruce III informed officials that its local appropriation of $13 million is exhausted, about a month earlier than last year.
The school department is still due some $4.7 million a month from state and federal sources for the balance of the fiscal year, but Bruce said the depletion of local funds could translate into a cash crunch when salary payouts for teachers and other bills are due.
