Lincoln Lions taking a bite out of Division II hockey field

January 21, 2013

PAWTUCKET — Should we stay or should we go? That was the question facing Lincoln head coach Jim Riel during the offseason when the RIIL was getting ready to realign its teams for the 2012-13 campaign.
Stay in the Division I-Eccleston and the Lions would have been competitive night in and night out against the other five public schools in the division. Drop down to Division II and also face a drop in competition, but the Lions would have been one of the clear favorites in the running for a lower state championship.

January 19, 2013

A little of this, a little of that …

Wake me when it’s Tuesday – the day Terry Francona’s juicy and highly anticipated book is scheduled to hit the shelves.
Not a moment too soon.
Look, I understand the importance of publicizing and spreading the word to the masses that there’s something on the immediate horizon that you may want to check out. The particular PR campaign for Francona’s 368-page opus has me a tad confused, however.

Where Christmas trees go to die... and create new life

January 19, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Highway Supt. Rick Lambert was on his way to tend to an emergency boiler problem when he came upon it, tossed unceremoniously to the curb like an ordinary piece of litter, the merriment all but expunged from its branches.
It was a Christmas tree, of course, but the timing was so wrong he had to chuckle.
“It was Christmas morning,” Lambert recalled. “They were already done with their Christmas tree. It was out the door.”
