Presentation of "Main Street Approach" held at 6:30 p.m. at Museum of Work and Culture.
Roger Williams University Professor Jeremy Wells and his students will make their case for using the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Main Street Approach in Woonsocket tonight, 6:30 p.m. at the Museum of Work and Culture.

Yvette Ayotte organized a little holiday cheer Dec. 20.
Yvette Ayotte and twelve of her friends thought Woonsocket could use a holiday pick-me-up, so they got together to do a little caroling Thursday night. "We feel the city could use a little boost," said Ayotte, so they got together at 6 p.m. Dec. 20 at the beginning of Oak Grove, dressed in coats, hats and scarves, and belted out a few rounds of 'Jingle Bells" for their neighbors. "There were twelve of us and we had a blast! So did the residents, they came outside and sang with us and thanked us," said Ayotte.

The following arrest information was supplied by the Woonsocket Police Department. An arrest does not indicate a conviction.
The destinations on the used GPS Eric Wakely, 20, of 444 Willow St., apt. 21, was trying to sell didn't correspond with any of the destinations in his life, but they did match up with those of the guy who said it was stolen. On Sept. 22, at 2:38 p.m., officers were dispatched to Mt. St. Charles Avenue for a report of a suspicious person selling GPS units.

He said he had sold the GPS for $50, and showed police a series of text messages to the man he'd sold it to.
