WOONSOCKET â As a critical care pulmonologist at Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island in Pawtucket, Dr. Eric Gartman has seen firsthand the damage caused by cigarette smoke.
On Wednesday, the day Woonsocket-based CVS Caremark announced it will ban all cigarette sales by October, Gartman was scheduled to meet with at least two patients with lung cancer, the leading cause of cancer death among both men and women, and one of the hardest cancers to treat.
CUMBERLAND â The opportunity for a father to coach his son in a college setting does not come around very often.
For Cumberland High senior Joe Fine, you can officially swap out âopportunityâ and replace it with âreality.â
Beginning this fall, there will be two Fines on the football sideline occupied by Bryant University. Head coach Marty Fine listed son Joe as part of the programâs latest recruiting effort on Wednesday. The Bulldogsâ 22-player class includes players from 10 different states with 11 being from New England.
LINCOLN â Oseh-Lie Saine is officially a member of Boston Collegeâs football program. In the eyes of the 2013 Lincoln High graduate who signed a pretty important document Wednesday, itâs a significant step that runs the gamut of emotions.
âIt feels really, really good,â a clearly jubilant Saine expressed when reached later the same day. âItâs a day Iâve been waiting for a long time and for it to finally come, it hit me (Tuesday night) and I was just like, âwow.â Signing that paper just felt great. Itâs real and I think Iâm still on cloud nine.â
LINCOLN â Although she didn't want to, Lauren Hervieux did a lot of watching from the sidelines as her Lincoln/Cumberland Co-op teammates competed.
Naturally, the premier senior defenseman would've preferred to take the ice with them and help in her usual ways â battling in the corners, stealing pucks, squelching 2-on-1 breakaways.
She couldn't, of course, after dislocating and fracturing her kneecap at a Lincoln varsity soccer practice back on Nov. 7, the afternoon before a pivotal state tournament semifinal.
