4 NORTH PROVIDENCE JUNE 13-19, 2018 | VALLEY BREEZE | NORTH PROVIDENCE EDITION ments done to shore up the build- ing. Superior Court Judge Richard Licht signed a consent order at the time. It called for the town to with- draw its demolition order, and it dissolved a temporary restraining order from Farina, who owns a doc- tor's office next door. Mayor Charles Lombardi and town officials say they're taking every step possible to either get the building fixed up to a more pre- sentable condition or torn down. Lombardi noted that new signs have gone up indicating that it's for lease, giving him hope that the location may finally be up for improve- ments. Lombardi said prior to Monday's inspection that he expects "we might be citing the doctor again" based on the condition of the property. "We believe it's in violation of a number of codes," he said. A call to Farina's office was not returned. Carnevale said he brought a police officer with him to the office last week to witness him delivering a notice of the coming inspection on Monday. He said both that inci- dent and Monday's inspection went mostly without incident other than initially being told that inspectors were trespassing again.

EYESORE From Page One NORTH PROVIDENCE – Students at Centredale Elementary School raised enough money for all of the students to receive a red nose as part of Red Nose Day on May 24. Preschool teacher Jacquelyn Fratus organized the event for the children. She said six teachers donated more than $20, and she was appreciative of the faculty support. Students were excited to hear that their favorite celebrities support the cause, said Fratus. Stars such as Ed Sheeran, Victoria Beckham and Shaq have all showed off their red noses online. This was the first time the whole student body could participate in the cause, a movement striving to end childhood poverty, one nose at a time. "They all got hyped up for it, even the preschool kids who couldn't keep the noses on because their own noses are too small," said Fratus. She said students were happy to give back to children they don't know. Red Nose Day is a part of Comic Relief, a charity launched in the United Kingdom in 1985. Comic Relief uses the power of comedy to raise money for the poor. Visit for more information.
