Valley honors its veterans

November 11, 2011

WOONSOCKET – From Concord to Korea, the Museum of Work and Culture yesterday staged a Veterans Day tribute for the ages.

November 11, 2011

CUMBERLAND — If you have been in a war and felt the fear of knowing the next moment could be your last, there are some things you can never put aside, never forget.

McGair: PC's Cooley proud of first recruiting class

November 10, 2011

Rick Pitino, sage that he is, shared this little anecdote at last month’s Big East media day – one that illustrates the waves new Providence College head coach Ed Cooley is making on the recruiting trail.
“He’s already attracting … he beat us out on a player recruiting-wise,” said Pitino point blank, his eyes lighting up as if they were filled with fire. “I would have said, when it got to Providence and us [Louisville], he would have had no shot in getting this player, but Ed got him. So he’s already made an impact.”

MSC's Hendricks sisters follow their hearts to URI

November 9, 2011

WOONSOCKET — During their truly exceptional high school careers on the Mount St. Charles Academy softball team, Emily and Olivia Hendricks have established themselves as the very best at their positions in the state.
Emily earned back-to-back All-State honors as a slick fielding shortstop who batted second and was an offensive threat from the left side of the plate, while Olivia posted a 36-15 mark as the Mounties’ ace pitcher, and offensively, was a bonafide run producer in the heart of the lineup.

November 9, 2011

On Tuesday night, Lace suffered the worst loss of her outstanding high school career when her then-unbeaten Mount St. Charles Academy squad was ousted in four games in the Division I semifinals by Ponaganset High.

Joe Paterno's tunnel vision caused a train wreck

November 9, 2011

“With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I could have done more.”
– Joe Paterno
***
Who would have thought it would end this way for the legendary Penn State coach of 46 years? Paterno, the man of high moral values, the guy who once vowed not to retire and “leave college football to the Barry Switzers and Jackie Sherrills” of his coaching fraternity, had failed the biggest morality test of his life.
