Ticket price increase expected for BI Ferry

January 3, 2013

BLOCK ISLAND – Passenger ticket prices on the Block Island Ferry could increase beginning this Memorial Day.

Interstate Navigation, the company that operates the Block Island Ferry recently filed a request with state regulators to raise passenger ticket prices by about 8 percent in the coming year on traditional “slow” ferries to account for rising fuel costs and upgrades to its fleet.

The New London, Conn.-based company would also eliminate a same-day travel discount and a discount for Block Island residents, but it plans to offer significantly lower rates to transport vehicles.

Knight-Wizards power past Narragansett

January 3, 2013

WEST WARWICK – Narragansett boys hockey coach Chris Lussier had seven simple words for his team moments before the start of Wednesday’s game against undefeated West Warwick/Exeter-West Greenwich.
“Make them beat you,” he said, “five on five.”
The message went unheard.
West Warwick/Exeter-West Greenwich converted three power plays in the first two periods into three quick goals while the Mariners converted only one all game – and it came when things were well in hand - in the Knight-Wizards’ 4-1 win Wednesday at Magiera Memorial Ice Rink Wednesday night.
