KINGSTON —Rhode Island guards Jarvis Garrett and Jared Terrell should no longer carry the label of “freshmen.”
While technically the guards are classified as such until the spring semester ends in May, when it comes to basketball, that status shouldn’t be the first word in any conversation about the pair for the rest of the season.
WOONSOCKET â€“ Even in a small city, politics can be as fleeting as fashion, an ever-changing parade of faces on the red carpet of public life.
Unless youâ€™re Norman G. Frechette.
At 85 years old, Frechette has served on the Zoning Board of Review more than half his life without interruption â€“ 45 years â€“ a plain-spoken voice of common sense as steady as the Rock of Gibraltar.
A longtime construction tradesman whose specialty was excavating with dynamite, Frechette was still working sporadically until very recently.
Technically, Brad Stevens became the head coach of the Boston Celtics in July 2013.
Unofficially, Stevens is still waiting for his ship to come in, i.e. a legit chance to put his stamp on a rebuilding project that for all intents and purposes is still going through the spin cycle – with no apparent end in sight.
