Rhode Island's new governor, Bruce G. Sundlun, wasted no time after being sworn in this past week before taking emergency action to close 45 credit unions and small banks with $1.7 billion in assets and 300,000 accounts. The private insurer of these institutions had insufficient reserves to cover a large embezzlement at one bank and a run on deposits. Now the state faces the likelihood of a huge bailout even as it copes with a $160 million budget deficit that is still growing.Does this situation sound familiar?

For Towson, the path is now clear. One more win, and the Tigers all but assure themselves a spot in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision playoffs. A loss, and it's most likely wait till next year. No. 17 Towson helped shed some clarity on what had been a murky playoff scenario Saturday by taking care of business against winless Rhode Island, surviving an uneven first half to pull away for a 41-10 win before an announced 7,263 at Johnny Unitas Stadium. Quarterback Grant Enders tied a career high with four touchdown passes and backup running back Dominique Booker, playing in his final regular-season home game, gained a career-best 181 yards on just seven carries, including an 83-yard touchdown run on the opening play of the second half.

WASHINGTON -- Perhaps in 1956 Rhode Island, which began as an outpost of Protestants too turbulent to get along in other colonies, was still smarting from Cotton Mather calling it ''the sewer of New England.''When in 1956 the state banned price advertising of alcoholic beverages, perhaps it really was worried, as a nanny should be, about the morals and livers of Rhode Islanders. Only cynics, meaning students of government and human nature, suspect that the ban was imposed at the behest of owners of small liquor stores, to protect them from the competition of larger stores that can afford to spend more on advertising.

KINGSTON, R.I. -- The University of Rhode Island football team proved charitable to a fault in a 23-14 homecoming loss to Towson University yesterday at Meade Stadium. The host Rams (3-3, 1-2 Atlantic 10) turned over the ball on four occasions - three led to the Tigers scoring a pair of touchdowns and a field goal. In a definitive turnabout, Towson, which came into the game ranked 111th in Division I-AA in turnover ratio, finished with a clean slate in this game. "We preached to our offense over the last two weeks that we needed to minimize our turnovers, minimize our penalties," Tigers head coach Gordy Combs said after the victory that pushed Towson's record to 4-2 (2-2 A-10)

Providence, R.I.--I WASN'T ALIVE 57 years ago when another man with a double-breasted suit and an authoritative voice took his oath of office and then shut down the banks. The image, though, of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's decisive action has become part of the national mythology, and it was chilling to be in Rhode Island's capital to hear its new governor, Bruce Sundlun, declare a similar financial emergency.Words and events not witnessed for generations were invoked in the first days of the new year, as a forced "holiday" temporarily shut the doors on 45 financial institutions, affecting 1 out of every 3 state residents.

SOUTH KINGSTOWN -- For three quarters yesterday, Towso State was very much in the football game. The Tigers trailed the University of Rhode Island by just six points, 13-7.But in the fourth period Rhode Island scored three touchdowns and added two points on a blocked extra-point attempt for a 36-19 season-opening triumph before a crowd of 5,852."We tried to substitute as much as we could, but I think they just wore us down. That's what happens when we play Yankee Conference teams," Towson's Gordy Combs said after his head coaching debut.

About 100 employees of Big Huge Games, a Timonium-based maker of video games, lost their jobs this week as the studio and its Rhode Island-based parent company abruptly shut down because of financial problems. The 12-year-old company was one of the anchors of Baltimore County's well-established video game industry, which has grown steadily since the 1980s as the popularity of computer and console games has skyrocketed. Big Huge Games was owned by 38 Studios, a Providence, R.I.-based company founded by former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling in 2006.

KINGSTON, R.I. — After a 10th consecutive losing season, maybe someday the University of Rhode Island football program can tell a story like the one the Towson University football program has written in 2011. The Tigers completed an improbable turnaround from a 1-10 finish in 2010 by going 9-2 (7-1 in the league) and winning their first CAA championship. The Tigers had to rally to beat the Rams and leave the field with the championship trophy Saturday. After trailing Rhode Island 10-0 in the first quarter, the Tigers shrugged off the deficit to score the next three touchdowns and pull out a 28-17 victory on a sunny, windy afternoon before 2,883 spectators at Meade Stadium.
