WOONSOCKET --- Chris Herren did a fair amount of traveling during his collegiate and professional basketball careers, not only touring arenas throughout the United States, but also finishing his hoop career overseas in Europe and Asia.
Itâ€™s been 6Â˝ years since Herren last played professionally, but these days, heâ€™s still flying coast to coast and racking up frequent flyer miles.
NORTH SMITHFIELD â€“ For high school hoops fans who have paid attention to North Smithfieldâ€™s Matt Walkow and Peter Keenan this season, there was one play in their last game that typified just how in sync these two young men are on the basketball floor.
KINGSTON â€“ Just what exactly can North Smithfieldâ€™s princes of the hardwood expect at URIâ€™s Ryan Center on Friday?
Upon some discussion with two area Division I boysâ€™ basketball head coaches whose teams squared off against Classical this winter, the general consensus is that if North Smithfield so much as sneezes the wrong way, T.J. Ciolfiâ€™s crew could end up trapped in a spider web with little or no chance of escape.
WOONSOCKET â€“ Maybe itâ€™s a garden-variety traffic stop or a kitchen squabble between husband and wife, maybe something more serious.
More often than ever, the cops sent to find out what happened run into a fundamental barrier: They donâ€™t speak the same language as the people involved.
Who you gonna call?
At the Woonsocket Police Department, the go-to guy is Patrolman Enrique Sosa, the cityâ€™s only Spanish-speaking cop.
â€śYou can tell by the look on their faces, sometimes theyâ€™re shocked,â€ť he said. â€śOften you can tell thereâ€™s a sense of relief, too.â€ť
