18 CUMBERLAND / LINCOLN NOVEMBER 27-DECEMBER 4, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE | CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION Councilor Robert Shaw asked about a particular home in his district that wasn't included on the list provided by Stevens, and Stevens responded that the town will consider adding it. Shaw noted the sense of place found in North Smithfield's Union Village because of standards in that town. Councilor Mike Kinch asked about what's happening with the old Walcott House on Nate Whipple Highway, and Stevens responded that the owner continues to battle with his insurance company but intends to restore that building after it was previously damaged by falling trees. Preservationist Craig Johnson told the council he believed an earlier effort to get that home a historic designation helped save it. He said it's a "gem of a property" and he hopes the plan to preserve it comes together. Mutter recognized Johnson for his efforts in sav- ing old buildings, saying no one in Cumberland is more dedicated to that cause. He said he recog- nizes there's a "sensitive balance" on preservation versus property rights, but said the town recog- nizes the need to save more of its history. State Rep. Jim McLaughlin urged the council to look on this initiative favorably, saying the town has plenty of history to preserve that many people don't know about. "How much more are we going to give up to progress?" he said. HISTORIC From Page 6 streak over the Villa Novans, as well as conclude their season with a winning record. The Novans completed their turnaround from an 0-4 start by topping Mount Pleasant for their seventh straight win in their Super Bowl on Sunday afternoon at Cranston Stadium. As for Cumberland, which posted a 5-5 record (4-3 in Division I-A play) and lost to La Salle in the Div. I quarterfinals earlier this month, the Clippers lead the holiday series, 34-17-4. In last year's holiday game, the Clippers posted a 22-0 triumph over the Novans, who were four days removed from their 37-13 win over East Greenwich. Lincoln, meanwhile, will also pursue a winning record on Wednesday in its 6 p.m. showdown at Ferguson Field against Central Falls, which will be the home team. The Lions also hold a 5-5 record (5-2 in Division II-A action), but have dropped four of their last five games, including their lopsided 64-28 defeat to Mount Pleasant in the D-II quar- terfinals. The Warriors are 5-4 (3-4 in D-III play), but have won three of their last four games. The Lions lead the holiday series, 6-3, and have won four in a row over the Warriors, with three of the victories coming by 20 or more points. FOOTBALL From Page One PepsiCo grant goes to Cumberland School Volunteers CUMBERLAND – The Cumberland School Volunteers group has announced a grant of $5,000 from the PepsiCo Foundation to support the Reading is Fundamental program. The program, offered in all Cumberland elementary schools and serving more than 2,000 students, is a free book distribution program pro- moting family literacy.

The students keep their book and are encouraged to share it with family. Each year, the volunteers must raise the funds to support the program. This grant is a significant help in reaching a fundraising goal. The CSV thanked Rep. Alex Marszalkowski, Sen.
