Late goal helps Warwick Vets skate past Woonsocket

December 13, 2013

WOONSOCKET — Head coach Nathan Arruda wants desperately to rekindle pride and interest in Woonsocket High hockey, as he – in the early 2000s – represented the program himself.
As far as he’s concerned, the young, inexperienced Villa Novans did just that on Friday night at Adelard Arena, despite dropping a tough 3-2 decision in their home opener.
In the end, with the score knotted at 2-2, freshman Greg Fontaine knocked in a power-play goal with only 1:54 remaining in regulation to give the Hurricanes the one-goal victory.

Red Sox confident next PawSox manager will be in place by Christmas

December 13, 2013

PAWTUCKET — While the Red Sox are expressing confidence that the search to find the next PawSox manager will be wrapped up by Christmas, don’t be surprised if official word filters out before the holidays.

Why the organization has nothing to announce at this time is likely two-fold. While all signs point to current Double-A skipper Kevin Boles moving to the front lines of the minor-league system, the 38-year-old is presently coaching a winter league team in Venezuela, Bravos de Margarita.

Embattled zoning board member asks judge to vacate scathing ruling

December 13, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Embattled Zoning Board member Allen Rivers wants a Superior Court judge to vacate a recent ruling in which he was branded “arrogant and offensive,” saying the jurist was improperly denied all the facts when he issued the decision.

Rivers has hired high-profile lawyer Robert G. Flanders to press the motion before Associate Superior Court Justice Daniel Procaccini. Flanders is a former associate justice of the state Supreme Court but is just as well known these days as the court-appointed receiver who led Central Falls through the state’s only municipal bankruptcy.
