First responders tend to some of the injured after two trolleys collided in a subway station on Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012 in Boston. An MBTA spokesman says six people were taken the hospital and more than 20 others were evaluated. T spokesman Joe Pesaturo says there was no derailment and no visible damage to either two-car trolley after the slow-speed accident just before noon on Thursday in the Boylston Street station.
Saul Lemoi, 38, of West Warwick pleaded guilty in federal court earlier this year to one count of bribery and one count of making a false statement.
Lemoi worked for the Comprehensive Community Action Program, based in Cranston. Prosecutors say he directed about $75,000 in funds from the program to a private company in which he had an interest. About half the money went to him.
U.S. District Court Judge John McConnell also sentenced Lemoi on Thursday to serve 400 hours of community service.
Two 1939ers identified as R.I.'s oldest refrigerators
The owners of two 1939 refrigerators have won a contest to identify the oldest refrigerators in Rhode Island.
National Grid and Sears sponsored the contest to highlight energy efficiency and a program that rewards the utility's customers for getting rid of old, energy-inefficient appliances.
The contest ended in a tie after Robert Midwood of Cranston and Edward Miracle of Greenville each turned in 73-year-old General Electric units. They both win a $1,000 gift card good toward the purchase of a newer model.
More than 3,400 appliances were picked up during the contest.
National Grid offers customers a $50 incentive if they allow their old refrigerator or freezer to be picked up for recycling.
