One thing very important thing brian many people making huge sums of money in the name of and using of, the poor.

Nice...I see many organizations that are fronts for the subversion of Marxism i.e. sustainableRead More development / "smart growth"

bank rhode island, try to do something for the average hard working people who support yourRead More business, and stop playing and hiding with this poor people crap. realize what your doing to some of us.I dont mean me! But i do have ideas that could actually service / help all.

It's wonderful BRI has donated. Helping families in an unexpected time of need especially when theRead More children are innocent bystanders..
Brian O'Ryan September 8, 2012 at 06:27 pm
Way to go, BankRI!!! These acts of generosity never seem to make it to the bigger news/media outletsRead More which would maybe help to show this city in a different light. All you hear is how awful Woonsocket is. And here we have a bank that is willing to invest in the city to make a positive change! Outstanding!!!
Russell Archambault September 8, 2012 at 10:06 pm
bri is not" investing" in the city, their "taking" tax breaks for profits, dontRead More be fooled !

racism? really? there are only 2 black people in the group picture. Come on people of Woonie...youRead More have not experienced racism until you have lived in the deep south, y'all.
English first August 27, 2012 at 11:20 am
I am glad this issue is being brought up. Northern RI is multicultural. it would be wonmderful toRead More unite people of all races, demonstrate our community's commitment to eliminating racism, and celebrate our diversity. Thanks for counting Angie.

you are welcome there, English first. obviously I was math first :-P

I read all of your contradictory post-Great job but our idea for a mindless playground underminesRead More it! - is how I read ALL of your post! It's a slap in the face to those of us who work really hard to provide fun, educational things for the students with limited money and parental involvement. Bernon's 450+ population-( not counting Kindergarten students because they barely get enough education time as it is- thank you again to our school committee!) has 4 recess periods for all of 5 minutes each- provided a few misbehaving students don't lose it for the whole group. BTW our 1st PTO meeting is September 10 @ 6:30 if you'd like to provide us all with your wisdom & cures for a broken system. Or better yet, come spend a day & see how our elementary school is run by a great group of teachers & administrators who work their butts off every single day! Consider running for local office & put your money where your mouth is.

Since my son saw the new painted playground last week we have been there twice to play... itRead More certainly beats tv and it has gotten him a little more excited to go back to school seeing teachers coming and going as they prepare their classrooms !
Anne August 17, 2012 at 02:39 am
As a parent and a teacher at this school ,who has been coming in and out to get ready for the startRead More of school, I saw the Riverzedge Kids working on this addition to our school. Our students deserve to have a school that they can be proud of and that can help them to see themselves as valued learners. I would like to thank the PTO for continually making positive contributions to the experiences of our children. Thank you to the parents who volunteered their time to help this project come to fruition.
Russell Archambault August 14, 2012 at 06:06 pm
I feal that its pretty bad that citizens have to donate their time to do repairs and clean up whenRead More the cosodians are being paid well to do their jobs. Does't anybody ever see the cause of the problems.
Laurie Smith August 15, 2012 at 01:35 pm
Russ, I'm guessing you dont volunteer any of your time to anything unless you are getting paid to doRead More so! We volunteer's volunteer our time because we choose to give back to the less fortunate. It's not a chore, we like to help were help is needed regardless of what community is on the recieving end. Oh and by the way...the work we did at Roger Williams Middle School was much needed work that WE volunteers had a great time doing so and not only did we VOLUNTEER out time, the supplies where also donated from paint to loom to mulch and flowers to beautify the grounds, wood to make benches, this kind of work is WAY out of the job description of a custodian!! Thanks Laurie
Russell Archambault August 15, 2012 at 04:32 pm
lauri if you even had a clue you would have no choice to retract your view. by the way you areRead More totally wrong about a custodians job sorry.
GAIL BOUCHER July 26, 2012 at 10:50 pm
thank you all for everything everyone is doing by word or deed to help my granddaughter. She is aRead More very special little girl and deserves the world. You will never know how much this means to me. This is for you Autumn, I love you to the moon and stars, Bamma
Phil Trudeau July 30, 2012 at 01:54 am
We would like to thank you for your donation from the bottom of our hearts. It was greatlyRead More appreciated.
Phil Trudeau July 30, 2012 at 02:04 am
We would like to thank all of the people that showed up and made Autumns benefit a success. We wouldRead More also like to thank all who could not attend but still donated. It was greatly appreciated and will go towards autumns upcoming kidney transplant and all of the bills that we will accrue after the transplant.

To buy tickets, people will have to buy one from a church staff member at the office at 17 FederalRead More St., or call 401-765-2412 to reserve tickets.
Martha Tetreault July 16, 2012 at 12:41 am
I will be there Thursday. I appreciate the hard work that the WRCC is doing to educate voters.Read More Thank you for sharing your knowledge & bringing groups into the city to assist in your efforts. I encourage others to come to this important meeting, to listen, learn and ask questions. Thanks, Martha
Rebecca Lambert July 16, 2012 at 07:27 pm
We would love for you to contact us at the church: 401-765-2412

The police are very aware of the threats, they are a great support system. We may be people thatRead More serve the community, but we are not suckers & when you hold others accountable when they misbehave, you end up makeing enemies. We give to others with out judging who they are but we will not enable behavior that harms others. The threats are par-for-core...so to speak. I could always use more volunteers around that have the heart of a servant & the backbone & mindset of "Medea"
Lori July 19, 2012 at 12:37 pm
I would be glad to help as well
Rob Borkowski (Editor) July 10, 2012 at 03:23 pm
And here is the story: http://patch.com/A-vTGL. Sorry it wasn't up right away. I was holding it forRead More a few facts that had to be filled in with people I was not able to reach yesterday.

Even though I have never met Joe Garlick. I have read about the many great things he hasRead More accomplished for Woonsocket. Thank goodness there are men like him that have positive energy to bring to urban areas.
