Tempest decision near

May 11, 2015

WOONSOCKET – A decision in Raymond D. “Beaver” Tempest Jr.’ s bid to clear his name in the 1982 murder of Doreen Picard is probably just weeks away after lawyers delivered hundreds of pages of closing briefs to the judge who is in charge of the case.

Associate Superior Court Judge Daniel A. Procaccini said he’s aiming to issue a written decision as quickly as possible because of the gravity of the issues involved.

“I’d love to get it done by the end of June,” he said. “It might go into July.”

Woonsocket High Football | New head coach Castiglia aims to re-instill tradition for Villa Novans

May 10, 2015

WOONSOCKET – The new head coach of the Villa Novans football team has made it quite clear that he’s not going to be just about X’s and O’s, or Johns and Joes.

Rest assured that there’s plenty of pigskin knowledge tucked inside the mind of Glenn Castiglia, Woonsocket’s choice to succeed Woonsocket interim coach Brian Bouley, who was handed the keys to the program last summer after Carnell Henderson became principal of the Cass Ave. campus.

Girls' Ice Hockey | MOUNT-N-LIONS? Lincoln, Mount St. Charles could form new girls' co-op team

May 9, 2015


At Lincoln High School, officials want to continue playing Rhode Island interscholastic girls’ hockey despite recently learning that their co-op partner Cumberland will drop the sport.

If the Lions are to keep playing, they’ll need a new partner, as they lack the numbers to field a team on their own.

One potential candidate is Mount St. Charles Academy, a program that bears a proud history in the sport but has seen declining participants in recent years.

Cumberland native's cafe plan: Blend coffee with cats

May 9, 2015

CUMBERLAND — For millions of American cat lovers, sipping a cup of coffee beside a feline friend is one of the taken-for-granted pleasures of daily life.

At home, on the sofa, that is. Not at Starbucks, or someplace like it.
But all that could change if Cumberland native Zackery Durkin and his girlfriend, Sarah Brown, have their way. They’re planning to open Rhode Island’s first “cat cafe” next year – after they return from South Korea.

Dog park proposal gaining bite in NS

May 7, 2015

NORTH SMITHFIELD – Sliding in baseball can be a necessary and useful thing, but Ray Pendergast says it’s happening too often for reasons that have nothing to do with stealing bases or scoring runs at some of town’s fields.

It’s happening because players are stepping in dog poo, says Pendergast, the town’s public works director and a coach with North Smithfield Little League.

“I know one thing – I’m tired of is watching kids going out on the field and sliding in this stuff,” he says. “And I’m not the only coach who feels this way.”

Cumberland Lacrosse | BLUE STREAK: Hayes, Stock lead Clippers past Mount for fourth straight win

May 7, 2015


WOONSOCKET  –  Cruising to wins by nine points or better in their last four games, the Clippers achieved another easy triumph on Thursday, this time 16-7, at Mount St. Charles.
