Patriots' Mallett has faith in childhood chum Middlebrooks

August 6, 2013

FOXBORO — 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, it’s perfectly understandable.

Middlebrooks’ 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.

Tenants: Please don't feed the cats

August 6, 2013

WOONSOCKET – A colony of feral cats near St. Germain Manor is creating problems for the owners of the high-rise – and heartache for at least one of its tenants.
The Woonsocket Housing Authority says it’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.

Bobby Doyle Summer Classic scheduled for next Sunday in Narragansett

August 5, 2013

SEEKONK — At the annual Arnold Mills Road Race in Cumberland on Fourth of July morning, former St. Raphael Academy and current Hendricken High coaching icon Jimmy Doyle was plenty busy taking mile splits of nephews Brian and Connor.

And for good reason: He wanted to know just how fast his late brother’s kids were running.

They didn’t disappoint, as 20-year-old Brian captured the Open Division title with a four-mile clocking of 21:07, and kid brother Connor, 18, took third in 21:26.

Lincoln Little League suffers first loss at New Englands

August 5, 2013

BRISTOL, Conn. — Lincoln All-Stars’ assistant coach Marty Gaughan Sr. had a feeling his team would face South Burlington, Vt. ace Sammy Premsagar in the third game of this Little League New England Regional Tournament on Monday afternoon.

That’s why he took all necessary measures to prepare the kids offensively.

“They say he’s a real fireballer; that’s why I just spent the last hour pitching batting practice to them,” he said perhaps 40 minutes before the tilt. “I was throwing them 100-mph heaters so they’d be ready.”

‘Feisty fighter’ mourned

August 5, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Even 35 years ago, when this was a more robust city, Phyllis H. Thomas was a rare breed – a doctor’s wife who became a social activist instead of socialite.
After her death Thursday at the age of 93, it’s unlikely the city will see her kind again any time soon, says John Dionne, a former president of the City Council who knew her well.
“You don’t find dedicated people like that,” he says. “People don’t want to get involved anymore.”
