DOMINO’S PIZZA SELECTS WOONSOCKET AS RHODE ISLAND’S

“PAVING FOR PIZZA” GRANT RECIPIENT

WOONSOCKET, R.I.: Domino’s Pizza has selected Woonsocket as the sole Ocean State municipality to receive its ‘Paving for Pizza’ grant which will award $5,000 to the City to apply to road paving costs to help ensure its delivery drivers and carry out customers experience smooth rides along local roads.

“Woonsocket greatly appreciates Domino’s generosity as well as its proactive interest in helping to improve our City’s roads which are well traveled daily,” said Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt. “As Mayor, I feel honored to have our City share in the company of other great cities nationwide such as Albuquerque, Anchorage, Burbank, Duluth, New Haven, New Orleans and Wilkes-Barre where Domino’s has already awarded grants.”

Under its national ‘Paving for Pizza’ grant program, Domino’s will issue fifty $5,000 grants to one municipality per each state. Headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the pizza giant will select each winning municipality based upon the greatest number of favorable nominations for each that Domino’s receives.

Mayor Baldelli-Hunt added, “It is an honor to have Domino’s select Woonsocket of all Rhode Island’s 39 municipalities to receive the very first award of this innovative grant.”

The Trump administration is slapping new sanctions on Iran. The sanctions target Iran's Supreme Leader, denying him access to important financial resources and support. President Trump called the sanctions "hard hitting." He also said they were being worked up before Iran shot down a U.S. drone last week.       President Trump says he didn't rape an advice columnist, and she isn't his type. In an interview with The Hill, Trump denied accusations by columnist E. Jean Carroll that he raped her in a department store dressing room in the 1990s. Trump said, quote, "Number one, she's not my type. Number two, it never happened."        The man accused of hitting and killing seven members of a group of motorcyclists is facing charges. Volodymyr Zhukovskyy [[ zoo-cowv-ski ]] was turned over to authorities in New Hampshire after being arrested on a fugitive warrant in Massachusetts. Zhukovskyy was driving a pickup truck with a trailer attached which collided with a group of motorcyclists Friday night on a two-lane highway in Randolph, New Hampshire.        A search is underway in Salt Lake City for a University of Utah student who has been missing for the last week. Friends of MacKenzie Lueck [[ LOO-uck ]] say she flew into Salt Lake City Airport from her Southern California home early last Monday morning, took a Lyft to North Salt Lake and hasn't been seen since. The 23-year-old Lueck has missed exams and a flight back home to California since she disappeared.        Tiger Woods' name is being dropped from the wrongful death lawsuit of an employee at The Woods' restaurant in South Florida. Woods' attorneys said Monday that the estate of the bartender who fatally crashed his car in December has voluntarily dismissed Woods as a defendant. The suit filed last month claims The Woods Jupiter and the general manager, who is Woods' girlfriend, contributed to the death of Nicholas Immesberger after he was over-served alcohol at the restaurant prior to his deadly crash.
