Blackstone’s Wojcik family are masters of the corn maze

September 7, 2013

BLACKSTONE - From a distance, the 5.5 acres of cow corn at Wojcik's Farm on Milk Street looks like any other small-farm corn field.

But step inside the thick jungle of stalks and you'll find an intricate labyrinthe of paths, where on a sunny fall day you're likely to find hundreds of people scratching their heads as they navigate their way through what some local enthusiasts say just might be the best corn maze in the Blackstone Valley.

The farm's corn maze opened Labor Day weekend and between now and Oct. 27 the farm will be visited by thousands of people looking to get lost.

D'Abate's endless devotion at the core of Mount volleyball's success

September 7, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Josh D'Abate's resume as the girls' head volleyball coach at Mount St. Charles is ridiculously impressive.

What's flabbergasting, downright astonishing, is how he became one in the first place.

He refuses to offer his age, but admits he's an “early 30-something” who graduated from Smithfield High School in the “mid-1990s.” He never took part in any JV or varsity sport while a Sentinel, and never picked up a volleyball, excepting perhaps in gym class, until long after his 17th birthday.

(Again, he didn't divulge when).
