WTG campaigning hard against proposed RISE academy

June 10, 2014

WOONSOCKET – The local teachers union has launched an incendiary public campaign attacking the proposed RISE Mayoral Academy as the Rhode Island Department of Education began soliciting public feedback to help determine whether to grant the school a charter.

Jeffrey Partington, president of the 600-member Woonsocket Teachers Guild, says mayoral academies “cherry-pick” the best students, drain resources from public schools and segregate students based on abilities, language and race.

Doubront's 'okay' in rehab start with PawSox

June 10, 2014

PAWTUCKET — To say that Felix Doubront was merely okay in his rehab outing for the PawSox on Tuesday would be a fair and accurate assessment.
There were times when the lefthander appeared in control, mainly when he utilized his changeup and curveball. His velocity, however, suggested a pitcher who was content with the idea of keeping things under wraps – at least for now.
It all added up to a 4.2-inning stint where he was charged with two runs on six hits – all of which were struck with authority – as Pawtucket rallied to knock off Louisville in 10 innings, 4-3.
