CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | JULY 12-18, 2018 CUMBERLAND / LINCOLN 7 helped me to see this." A sign hung up outside Cumberland High School reads, "Cumberland Loves You, Cameron." The cause of the accident remains under investigation, with assistance from the Massachusetts State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and Crime Scene Services Section. According to Massachusetts State Police, a 26-year-old male driver from Providence was traveling south in a 2003 Ford F-350 with Faria and Salvatore as passengers when he lost control of the vehicle, causing it to roll over and crash into a tree off the breakdown lane. The driver and Faria were trapped in the vehicle when it caught fire, and were rescued by passersby who stopped at the scene to extinguish the fire, police said. Middleboro and Wareham Fire Department personnel extricated the pair using the Jaws of Life. The driver was transported to Tobey Hospital in Wareham before being flown via MedFlight to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, police said. Faria was flown by MedFlight to Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. Faria's mother, Michelle, told NBC- 10 that her son was wearing his seat- belt at the time of the accident, which occurred on his way to work.

From preceding page Two cars were trapped by flood waters in the CUMBERLAND INDUSTRIAL PARK last Friday after a deluge of rain caused flooding in a number of regular trouble spots in town. Cars were also trapped at the bottom of Lonesome Pine Road, an area officials are working to address with better drainage. Water worries Plant Street man indicted on molestation charges CUMBERLAND – The Providence County Grand Jury on Monday indicted Samuel Cabrera, age 33, of 23 Plant St., charging him with four counts of first-degree child molestation and one count of second-degree child molestation. It is alleged that on or about April 19, Cabrera molested a girl age 14 or younger. The alleged incidents took place in Cumberland. The Cumberland Police Department conducted the investigation. Cabrera is scheduled to be arraigned in Providence County Superior Court on July 25. New law bans use of tanning equipment by youths PROVIDENCE – Legislation sponsored by Senate Majority Whip Maryellen Goodwin and Cumberland/Lincoln Rep. Mia Ackerman to prohibit those under age 18 from using tanning facilities in Rhode Island was signed into law last week. The new law, which took effect upon passage, applies only to equip- ment that uses ultraviolet lamps or other equipment to induce skin tan- ning through irradiation, not spray tanning. "We shouldn't allow kids to use these tanning devices for the same reasons we don't allow them to smoke – it causes cancer," said Ackerman, of District 45. "In fact, just like tobacco smoke, UV rays are classified as a Level 1 carcinogen by the World Health Organization. We simply shouldn't be risking the lives of our teenagers just so they can look good on prom night." Since 2013, children under 18 have been banned from using indoor tan- ning facilities in Rhode Island unless their parents sign a written consent that includes information about the cancer risks of tanning. The legisla- tion passed last week eliminates the parental consent option, and also removes an exemption that currently allows minors with a doctor's pre- scription to use tanning facilities.

To stem these costs, increasing numbers of pet owners are purchasing pet insurance. The North American Pet Health Insurance Association reports that about 1.6 million U.S. pets currently have health insurance policies. Most policies cover cats and dogs, but there are also policies for birds and exotic pets. Costs vary in accordance with the pet's age, breed, housing address, and the type of coverage selected. The policies will not cover preexisting conditions (some exclude hereditary and congenital conditions) and usually do not cover routine exams and care (such as annual checkups), but most cover accidents and illnesses. For the past 25 years, HUNTER INSURANCE, INC., has provided customers with quality and affordable insurance. We are a small business, so we know how to address the issues and concerns of similar companies. We even have insurance programs tailored for general contractors, funeral directors, and restaurant owners. To learn more about coverage, please call 769-9500. Our office is located at 389 Old River Road, Lincoln. NOTE: Many pet owners find that it is best to insure their pets when they are young before they develop conditions that may exclude them from insurance in the future.
