February 6, 2013

BURRILLVILLE – As Lucille S. Guilbault remembers the Blizzard of ’78 with lots of other local folks today, she will be thinking more about birthday candles than the storm’s incredible depths and drifts of snow.
In addition to today being the 35th anniversary of the big storm, it’s also the 35th birthday of Guilbault’s daughter, Rebecca.
As the storm’s heaviest snows started to blanket the area in the early afternoon of Feb. 6, 1978, Guilbault began going into labor and was soon worrying about how she would get to the delivery room at Women & Infants Hospital in Providence.

February 5, 2013

NORTH SMITHFIELD — Head coach T.J. Ciolfi claimed to be less than ecstatic after his North Smithfield High squad, with a notable edge in height, allowed under-.500 Warwick Vets to manufacture a 9-0 run at the end of the initial half to slice a 13-point deficit to 39-33.
He had wanted more efficient board work from senior tri-captain/center Matt Walkow and junior forward Peter Keenan.
“Matt and Pete got an earful at intermission,” Ciolfi confessed. “I felt that with our size advantage, we should’ve started the game with more rebounds.”
