McGuire Elementary School, in North Providence, was honored with a Book Nook in her memory at the school's library in a dedication cer- emony held there last Saturday. Susan died in 2017 at Brigham and Women's Hospital at the age of 54. She was the valedictorian of her high school class and an honors graduate from Harvard and Simmons Colleges. Attending the dedication were, from left, McGuire Principal BRUCE BUTLER, Susan's cousin, ANN FLANNERY, Susan's sister MARY PALUMBO, illustrator GINA TRIPODI, who worked on a children's book with Susan, and Susan's sister JANE SHEEHAN. NORTH PROVIDENCE – Last Saturday morning, members of the community and those closest to the late Susan Palumbo gathered at McGuire Elementary School's new library to dedicate a reading nook in her memory. Friends and family of Palumbo said they couldn't think of a better way to memorialize this "lifelong learner" who had a deep love of reading. Palumbo had attended McGuire, was North Providence High School's 1980 valedictorian, and went on to graduate with honors from Harvard and earn a master's degree from Simmons College. She stayed rooted to her home in North Providence, remaining strongly connected to her family and friends in the community. In 1999, she was diagnosed with polycythemia vera, a rare blood can- cer. After seven years, that turned into bone marrow cancer, or myelo- fibrosis.

The Cougars will enter this game with a 3-7 overall record that includes a 1-6 mark in Division III play.

But make no mistake about Martins despite his good-natured vibe, said Mayor Charles Lombardi when he came to the department at the start of 2018; he's a "good street cop" who earned his stripes on the streets of neighboring Pawtucket, where he also learned to be a great administrator. Lombardi told command staff last week that Martins would be the new chief and there would be no search to replace Tikoian, who is retiring. Martins will officially start his tenure as chief on Jan. 1. "From my perspective, Maj. Martins is the perfect fit for the department," said Tikoian at that time. "He is an experienced, well respected law enforcement profes- sional sharing my leadership philoso- phy and vision for the department." And Tikoian hasn't changed that tune in the nearly two years since, telling The Breeze for a story last week that Martins will bring a seamless transition to a department that's made such strides, bringing com- By ETHAN SHOREY Valley Breeze Managing Editor ethan@valleybreeze.com MARTINS See MARTINS, Page 4 NP football team visits Smithfield in 49th annual Thanksgiving Day game NORTH PROVIDENCE – It's been a difficult season for the North department at the start of 2018; he's a "good street cop" who earned his stripes on the to replace Tikoian, who is retiring.
