ENDORSEMENT: Gina Raimondo will move the state forward as next RI governor

November 3, 2014

Rhode Island has been stagnating for too long now, mired in the morass of a failing economy that threatens to suck us all under like quicksand.
We still have not fully recovered from the Great Recession that hit in 2008, and that extended period of weakness and fiscal frailty makes it all the more difficult to pull ourselves out of the hole.
Our state desperately needs a leader to step forward, one who has the courage to confront difficult problems and the wisdom and judgment find the best way to solve them.
Gina Raimondo is that leader.

Champ’s Diner returns from exile

November 2, 2014

WOONSOCKET – Bethany Marsland’s love affair with Champ’s began when she was barely tall enough to see above the counter of the historic dining car.

As a little girl, she remembers telling the brothers who ran the place, Roger and Gerry Champagne, that she wanted a restaurant just like theirs when she grew up.

“I loved it,” she says. “My mother used to take me there forever, for as long as Roger and Gerry had the place.”

The proprietor of a long string of successful restaurants in the city over the years, Marsland is about to open another. But it won’t be like Champ’s.

College basketball | A look at how the preseason has fared for Cooley, Friars

November 1, 2014

 

PROVIDENCE – Ed Cooley freely admits that he has not settled on a concrete starting five. Luckily for the Providence College coach, the regular season doesn’t tip off for another two weeks.

Three-fifths of the lineup appears set with LaDontae Henton, Carson Desrosiers and Tyler Harris making up the frontcourt. Based on Cooley’s optimism with regards to Kris Dunn’s quest to ramp up to game speed after a lengthy layoff, it’s appears safe to mention the redshirt sophomore in a starting capacity.

For Shea High grid coach Dino Campopiano and his area brethren, it was business as usual Monday...
