NORTH SMITHFIELD â As is usually the case, the home team celebrating âSenior Night,â or their last tilt of the season on their own floor, opens slowly due to the emotion of the moment.
Thatâs what appeared to have happened to North Smithfield High while taking on stellar Division III-South foe Middletown on Tuesday evening.
The Northmen, who went into intermission trailing the Islanders, 21-14, got an earful from head coach Alisha Pirri, then put those words to use in the final half.
WOONSOCKET â Based on their interpretation of the City Charter, officials say longtime parks and recreation worker David P. Ayotte may remain on the job despite his arrest on felony gambling charges, at least until heâs indicted by a grand jury.
Ayotte, 53, of North Smithfield, and his wife, Cheryl, were among 13 individuals from northern Rhode Island arrested last week on charges of organized criminal gambling, conspiracy and bookmaking. Read the full story in Wednesday's Call.
NORTH SMITHFIELD â For a change of pace, letâs remove the shrouds of doubt and political bureaucracy that have helped create tension and uneasiness regarding the possible elimination of springtime sports at the townâs high school.
While thereâs no denying that this threat to Northmen athletics is cause for concern, itâs also a tad on the premature side to jump to hasty conclusions that hone in on the worst-case scenario.
