NORTH SMITHFIELD â€“ Monday night saw North Smithfield come close to handing The Prout School its first league loss of the season. The Northmen managed to keep the contest close, but a strong push down the stretch enabled the Crusaders to waltz out of Lovett Gymnasium with a 69-61 triumph.
PROVIDENCE â€“ The Woonsocket High School football program is staying put in Division II. In the case of Tolman High, Division I beckons after a successful stint in Division II.
Divisional alignments for several fall sports were ratified and approved at Mondayâ€™s meeting of the Rhode Island Interscholastic League Principals' Committee on Athletics. In the case of football, Woonsocket will remain in Division II, a league where the Villa Novans have resided since the 2006 season.
WOONSOCKET -- The final tally on shots on net in Monday nightâ€™s contest between Mount St. Charles and Barrington was an astounding 78-32 count in favor of the Mounties.
And while the Mounties managed to claim the Division I crossover game by an 8-0 score, they werenâ€™t able to put away the visiting Eagles until the start of the third period, as they netted four goals in the first 7:18 of play to finally send the fans to Adelard Arenaâ€™s parking lot.
PROVIDENCE â€” Seconds after a Superior Court judge found Lincoln police officer Edward M. Krawetz guilty of felony battery with a dangerous weapon â€” in this case, his shod foot â€” the defendant's wife, Lori, wiped away tears.
Several other family members just looked around in disbelief after Justice Edward C. Clifton announced his decision at about 12:10 p.m., Monday.
WOONSOCKET â€” Robert Bouchard can still crack a joke about how his neighborhood is starting to remind him of the Hitchcock classic, â€śThe Birds,â€ť but donâ€™t be fooled: Heâ€™s losing his sense of humor about the North Endâ€™s population of gloomy-looking vultures.
Itâ€™s growing, says Bouchard.
And so are his concerns about avian-borne disease and property values.
â€śThe growth has been exponential,â€ť says Bouchard. â€śItâ€™s gotten to the point where you donâ€™t even see a migratory dropoff of the population in the summertime anymore.â€ť
