WOONSOCKET â Sometimes it takes a little bit of fun to learn an important lesson, and the students at Citizens Elementary School found that out on Thursday when Mr. Deep Positivity took on the problem of bullying during a rally in their school auditorium.
The rapping educator from Providence, a.k.a. James McBride and 2003 Rhode Island Big Brother of the Year, used his songs and supportive and optimistic outlook to encourage the students to take a stand against bullying.
To enlighten the masses regarding the kind of manager and person the Pawtucket Red Sox are getting in Kevin Boles, we engaged in a background check that conjured all sorts of positive vibrations.
In essence, this is a âgetting-to-know-you-betterâ exercise, an opportunity to view through the lens of those who know and understand Boles best and have more insight into his roots than any introductory press conference ever could.
PAWTUCKET â At a time when a host of Bostonâs top prospects are stationed in Double-A and Triple-A, the organization arrived at the decision to provide the PawSox coaching staff with an additional voice.
To be clear, Kevin Boles is Pawtucketâs new manager while fellow Triple-A newcomer Bruce Crabbe is classified as coach, not bench coach. The pair will be joined in the trenches by pitching coach Rich Sauveur and hitting coach Dave Joppie, two holdovers from Gary DiSarcinaâs staff who will be returning to McCoy Stadium in 2014.

What do you get for the person who has everything this holiday season? How about a municipal street sign-you know, the real McCoy, straight from the city of Woonsocket. And it's all for a good cause, says Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt: The Milk Fund. "These signs will make a great gift of decoration for anyone's home, office, or place of business, and the proceeds will help a very worthy charity,"the mayor said. The city will be selling the old green-and-white signs for $10 each.They're available because the city is in the process of replacing them.
