MSC girls win series opener with Bay View

March 16, 2011

PROVIDENCE — Mount St. Charles Academy has relied primarily on its offense to get the job done this season.
Wednesday night it was the defense turn to make the headlines.
Lauren Deguire's goal in the first period was all the offense that was needed as the top-seeded Mounties held off No. 2 seed Bay View Academy, 2-0, in the opener of their best-of-three championship finals at Providence College's Schneider Arena.

Remembering author Edwin O'Connor

March 16, 2011

WOONSOCKET — He never smoked or drank. No one can recall that he ever raised his voice in anger. And the khakis and loafers he was fond of wearing were as low-key as his personality.
In many ways the Pulitzer Prize was a crown that never quite fit Edwin O’Connor, author of “The Last Hurrah,” and the city’s most famous Irish-American native son.
And, sadly, perhaps its most forgotten.
“Aside from the catch-phrase ‘last hurrah,’ which has become part of the English language, he really has been forgotten,” says Robert Rose, an independent TV producer from Lincoln.

Millville's John Dean dead at 78

March 16, 2011

MILLVILLE — This week would have been just around the time that John F. Dean Sr. would dye his trademark white beard green in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. It was a springtime tradition that would often turn the heads of passing motorists while Dean, looking like an over-sized leprechaun, was out with his highway crews filling potholes.
Today, rather, it was a somber mood in Millville, as friends and family mourned the passing of 78-year-old Dean, a lifelong resident of Millville and longtime town highway surveyor, who died Tuesday at Landmark Medical Center after a brief illness.

Judge rules on 17-year-old stabbing suspect

March 16, 2011

WOONSOCKET — A Family Court judge yesterday “certified” a 17-year-old boy accused in a stabbing last April that left an elderly man paralyzed — a status that falls a step short of waiving him into adult courts.
But Amy Kempe, a spokeswoman for Attorney General Peter Kilmartin, said the ruling also places the boy in jeopardy of serving an adult-length prison sentence if the courts determine he was responsible for the stabbing.
“It’s kind of a bifurcated approach,” said Kempe. “He’ll be tried in Family Court but he’ll be subject to adult sentencing.”
