4 NORTH PROVIDENCE MAY 15-21, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE | NORTH PROVIDENCE EDITION • Sykes Street • Greenville Avenue • Humbert Street • Madison Street • Orchard Street • Howe Street • Swan Street • Eddy Street Roads repaved last year included Atlantic Avenue, Andover Street, Angell Road, August Avenue, Brookfarm Road, Cosmo Drive, Countryside Drive, East Avenue on the Angell Avenue side, Eliot Avenue, Evergreen Street, Ferncliff Avenue, Fourth Street, Governor Notte Park Way, Halsey Street, Knapp Avenue, Monticello Street, Pinewood Drive, Sharon Street, Smithfield Road, Springdale Avenue, Sudbury Street, Terry Street, West River Parkway, Winona Street, Gardner Avenue, Alpha Street, Beta Court, Gamma Court, and Observatory Avenue. The town continues to coordi- nate repaving with both Providence Water and National Grid projects, said Lombardi, not wanting to have recently repaved roads torn up again shortly after being completed. In National Grid's case, he said, town ordinance requires that the util- ity provider not just repave a ditch or cut but pave half the street. "We kind of sit back and wait for them to get their work done and get the whole street done for half the price," he said. REPAVING From Page One NORTH PROVIDENCE – James Michael "Jimmy James" Caputo, a town native and musician who's now working hard to find his way in the film industry, says he's proud to have completed a short comedy film titled "Canceled," set to debut later this month in Rhode Island. Losing a boyfriend can be dif- ficult, but in Molly's case, it's not her boyfriend she's upset about, states a synopsis of the film. The short comedy follows two girls, Julia and Sadie, who attempt to console their disheveled friend, Molly, as she mourns the loss of her favorite TV series. Caputo, now liv- ing in Providence, has seen his film accepted into four film festivals, including the SENE Film, Music & Arts Festival. "Canceled" will show at the Columbus Theatre of Providence this Saturday, May 18. The event, featuring that film and a number of others, will start at 2:15 p.m. The cost is $10. Caputo is also working on an animated short, which he plans to enter into the film festival circuit. He's also doing freelance writing as he invests everything into find- ing gainful employment, with an emphasis on television. Caputo, 29, is the son of James and Gail Caputo, of North Providence. He said he expects many friends and family to come to the premiere, as social media has been blowing up with the news. Caputo got help with his proj- ect from local food and beverage donors, an award-winning actor, a Grammy award-winning artist, and a professional sound designer. He began his project last summer, shooting it in the fall, and it was ready to go by early winter. The film is about six minutes long, he said, and while it's not a "laugh out loud thing," audiences will find it quite humorous. Visit celedshort for more on the film.
