Cooler prompts bomb scare

October 7, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Traffic was detoured around the junction of Pond and East School streets for nearly two hours Monday morning as the state bomb squad was called in to investigate a suspicious package left on the sidewalk.

Detective Jamie Paone, a spokeswoman for the police, said the package turned out to be nothing more than an ordinary picnic cooler. Nothing suspicious was found inside the cooler, though Paone wouldn’t elaborate on what, if anything, was.

Mounties stop slide: Charland, Rein help MSC down Titans, 3-1

October 7, 2013

WOONSOCKET -- It’s been a rather dismal experience for Mount St. Charles head coach Josh D’Abate over the past two weeks.

The Mounties had suffered three straight Division I crossover losses, and they weren’t pretty. After dropping a 3-1 verdict to South Kingstown, they were dealt two shutouts by Coventry and North Kingstown.

“I just thought it was experience,” or lack of it, D’Abate stated. “We graduated six starters last year, and we brought some athletics girls back, but they didn’t have the amount of playing time the (seniors) did.”

Still business as usual for Red Sox' McDonald, Lavarnway

October 6, 2013

BOSTON – The sight of Jonny Gomes taking swings in the same batting-practice group as Ryan Lavarnway before Game Two of the American League Division Series provided some easy dots to connect.

As if the lines of symmetry weren’t clearly marked already, John McDonald jumped in the cage immediately after Gomes, Lavarnway and the rest of their pregame swing partners cleared out.

Cumberland pitmaster enjoys taste of victory at BBQ contests

October 5, 2013

CUMBERLAND – On a night out at Wes’ Rib House nine years ago, Christopher Clegg of Cumberland got his first taste of authentic ‘que.
Clegg was so impressed with the restaurant’s fall-off-the-bone moist baby back ribs and tender wood-smoked chicken, he went out and bought a smoker at an end-of-season sale with big ideas of replicating the kind of rib house-quality barbecue he had experienced dining out.

‘Corn Crop’ dress survives eighth trip down the aisle

October 5, 2013

PAWTUCKET — Many readers enjoyed the story that appeared in the Times of bride-to-be Beth Coakley and her “corn crop dress.” The satin and lace bridal gown, first worn by Coakley’s great-aunt, Mary Gantz Bader, in 1949, had been passed down to a bride in every generation of her mother’s family after that, from the 1950s to the 1990s.

Coakley is happy to report that the heirloom dress officially stood the test of time at her Aug. 31 nuptials to Pawtucket native Robert M. Bedard on Cape Cod, and she provided The Times with wedding photos to prove it.
