5 Things, Mar. 8: Medicare, Warmer, Pix

A warm 'hello' on this March 8 to OPTX Rhode Island and its resident photog, Victor Phaneuf — check out his work in one of our 5 Things To Know Today.

Medicare: Blue Cross/Blue Shield of RI is hosting an informational Medicare meeting today at 3 p.m. at Luigi's Restaurant [as featured in a recent GoLocalProv.com column on old-school Italian restaurants — nice of you big-city Providence types to notice]. Register for this free seminar at 1-800-505-2583.

Warmer: This being New England, we're not impressed — too much. Today's JohnstonPatch Weatherbug forecast calls for highs in the 60s during the day, with increasing clouds and a chance of showers overnight.

Pix: As promised, you can click here to check out a nice photo submitted to our Neighborhood Gallery by Victor Phaneuf over at OPTX Rhode Island — and add your own work to the slideshow.

Jobs: Looking for work — or workers? Post your FREE classified ad on our Jobs page.

Creative: That's meant to be snarky — on this date last year, we had a report from the Johnston Police that they arrested a guy for breaking into an industrial building on Peck Hill Road and trying to steal scrap metal. The suspect claimed he was collecting material for his artwork — wonder what he told his mom, whose name was on the registration of the van he used.
