HOPKINTON—A recent letter from Gov. Chafee to Town Manager William McGarry contained a pleasant surprise: This year, Hopkinton is being awarded $131,335 from the Rhode Island Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The amount is nearly twice last year’s amount.

“It was wonderful to see. We got almost double what we got last year. And it’s not often you get double from the state one year over another,” said Council President Frank Landolfi at Monday night’s council meeting.

’Gansett trying new lineups

The Knights soundly beat the Mariners 25-12, 25-11, 25-10 in the quarterfinals last season en route to their third D-II title in a row and should once again be the team to beat with one the state’s best hitters in Jennifer Donnelly back this season.
