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.

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.
