Shorthanded Mounties not backing down from powerful Rams in Div. I title series

March 5, 2013

WOONSOCKET — Mount St. Charles Academy coach Tony DiLorenzo has a dilemma on his hands this week, and it’s not trying to figure out a way to upend unbeaten La Salle Academy in their best-of-three title series at Brown University’s Meehan Auditorium.
Rather, it’s trying to figure out how to compete with what may be an 11-player roster, no thanks to a pair of injuries suffered by two of his defensemen in Saturday’s 2-1 win over the Warwick co-op team that completed Mount’s best-of-three semifinal-round sweep.

Looking for a good semifinal-round series to follow this weekend?
It’s going to be awfully tough to pick just one.
Two series contain neighboring teams battling each other. Another features the region’s best parochial school team taking on the state’s top public school squad, and the fourth is a battle between two teams that saw two of their three regular-season games end in ties.
The best-of-three action begins on Friday, and the Division I series featuring Burrillville and Cranston West kicks off the schedule with an early 7 p.m. game at Levy Arena.

FFRF hasn’t changed stance on monument

March 5, 2013

WOONSOCKET – The Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) hasn’t forgotten about the city’s Place Jolicoeur monument.
The monument – a war memorial that had long since blended into the background of city life – got its 15 minutes of fame last year when the FFRF wrote to Mayor Leo T. Fontaine demanding that the Latin cross atop the structure be removed because it rests on city property and thus improperly gives government sanction to a religious symbol.
Rebecca Markert of the FFRF told The Call Monday it has not dropped its objection to the memorial.
