WOONSOCKET â€” Navigant Post 85 co-coaches Buster Perrault and Jim Gauthier had been set to retire last year from the everyday grind of not only mentoring their players, but making sure they all (or as many as possible) could attend necessary practice sessions and contests.
Another chore: Rounding up enough sponsors to pitch in â€“ ponder the pun â€“ and make sure they had enough funds to uniform the entire roster, purchase baseballs and necessary equipment, etc.
FOXBORO â€” This is the time of year when the conversations between Texas childhood pals Will Middlebrooks and Ryan Mallett slow to a crawl.
On the surface, itâ€™s perfectly understandable.
Middlebrooksâ€™ baseball duties are in full bloom with two or possibly three months in his season remaining. With Mallett, the dog days of summer represent a hectic time, with practices and intra-squad scrimmages going hand in hand with film sessions and preseason football contests.
WOONSOCKET â€“ A colony of feral cats near St. Germain Manor is creating problems for the owners of the high-rise â€“ and heartache for at least one of its tenants.
The Woonsocket Housing Authority says itâ€™s worried that the cats are creating a health hazard for more than 150 tenants of the high-rise, including some who live in the new assisted living wing.
Duncan Speel, the deputy director, says the WHA was forced to order an 82-year-old woman who lives in the high-rise to stop feeding the cats recently.
