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.”

Energy Secretary Rick Perry says the oil market is resilient and "will respond positively" after a weekend drone attack cut Saudi Arabia's production by half. Perry told delegates to the International Atomic Energy Agency's General Conference in Vienna today that the U.S. is prepared to release oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Saturday's attack led to the biggest surge in crude oil prices in nearly three decades.       Maine politicians are reacting to a building explosion that left one firefighter dead and six others injured. On Twitter, Senator Angus King said he is "devastated by the news of the serious explosion in Farmington."

He tweeted that the U.S. is "paying a MUCH higher Interest Rate than other competing countries" and he blamed the Fed. Trump again attacked Fed Chair Jerome Powell and said Powell doesn't have a clue.       Senator Dick Durbin says the federal government "finally woke up to the reality" of vaping and e-cigarettes as a serious health issue. Speaking today in Chicago, the Illinois Democrat added that vaping flavors such as bubblegum and mango are designed to appeal to children and they do. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot says she plans to expand the current effort to ban flavors of e-cigarette and vaping products as they threaten to get another generation completely and utterly hooked on nicotine.       A suspected Florida serial killer is now in custody. The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says 37-year-old Robert Hayes is believed to be linked to at least three murders in Daytona Beach. Hayes appeared before a judge today on charges of first-degree murder, where his bond was denied.        Fans of Dancing With the Stars will see a switch-up tonight.
