Friars' Brooks left stranded at sea by Red Storm

January 2, 2011

Marshon Brooks was the picture of a frustrated Friar as he stood in the hallway of The Dunk Saturday night. His stat line in a narrow loss to St. John’s – 8-of-14 shooting for 20 points – did little to ease his pain.
Most players would gladly take the numbers like the ones Brooks compiled, bolt quickly out of the gym and pray that nothing gets amended before the final sheet is xeroxed. Not Brooks. The senior knows that if Providence has any shot of being anything more than a mere footnote in Big East play, then he has to deliver high octane performances every time out.

Board to consider water options

January 2, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Keeping a campaign promise to do so before the end of 2010, Mayor Leo T. Fontaine last week seated an advisory board to evaluate the costly and controversial options for building a new water treatment plant.
A public interest advocacy group, the Woonsocket Taxpayers Coalition, has been openly urging the mayor to create such a panel. The group, headed by Steve Lima, who challenged Fontaine in the 2009 election for mayor, has questioned Fontaine’s support for a plan that calls for buying water from Pawtucket, at least for a time, to satisfy all of the local needs.
