Lots of history, tradition at Pawtucket Country Club

August 14, 2011

PAWTUCKET — In this town, Pawtucket Country Club is to golf as Fenway Park (or Yankee Stadium) is to baseball.
Legends have long resided on this plush piece of greenery located on the city’s border with Seekonk. Caddy master Jim Tanner has been working the room since 1952. You can still find him downstairs almost any day of the week, taking care of clubs and caddies.

With backs against the wall, CALL delivered

August 14, 2011

The Cumberland American team that waltzed its way to Bristol, Conn., had gone missing in action.
Sure, the pitching and defense were still present, but the merciless offensive attack that became the theme of Cumberland’s state title run was nowhere to be found. The Rhode Island champions dropped two of their first three pool-play games in the New England regional tournament, standing perilously close to the end of a memorable summer.
But just when manager Dave Belisle’s club needed them most, Cumberland’s bats awoke from their ill-timed slumber. The rest, as they say, is history.

Snafu disrupts progress on Chestnut Hill Road Bridge; officials worried

August 13, 2011

GLOCESTER — Only a week ago, work on the $1.2 million Chestnut Hill Road Bridge rehabilitation project appeared to be progressing on schedule with a targeted completion date of September.
But a recent snafu involving the contractor for the project now has town and state officials, including Sen. Paul W. Fogarty, worried the bridge will not be completed on time.
Fogarty said Thursday that the low bidder on the project, Shire Corporation, was abruptly pulled from the project when their insurance company placed them in default. A new contractor must now be found for the project, he said.

PawSox fall to Gwinnett

August 13, 2011

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. — On paper, the PawSox four-game enterprise against the stingy Gwinnett Braves pitching staff ought to have gotten gradually easier after they got the better of Julio Teheran on Friday.
Manager Arnie Beyeler wanted no such notion inhabiting his clubhouse, as evidenced by his thoughts between Friday and Saturday night’s bouts and the outcome of the latter game.

Cumberland American earns trip to Little League World Series

August 13, 2011

BRISTOL, Conn. — It was only fitting.
The shutdown pitching. The relentless hitting. The comeback.
They were all on display in Saturday’s New England regional final. And that is why the Cumberland American players circled Breen Field in jubilation, their championship banner in tow, with Kool & the Gang’s “Celebration” blaring over the sound system.
Next stop: South Williamsport, Pa.
Down three runs before taking a swing, Cumberland erupted in an eight-run bottom of the first inning that set the tone for its 13-7 victory against Andover (Mass.) National.

Chief looks to create position to oversee accreditation effort

August 13, 2011

WOONSOCKET – It's taking longer than he hoped, but Police Chief Thomas Carey is still pushing the police department toward full accreditation by a national organization known as CALEA – the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies.
The department has already devoted significant resources toward laying the groundwork for accreditation by overhauling its massive catalog of policies and procedures.
Now the department is ready to move on to the next phase by hiring a worker to manage the trek toward accreditation, says Carey.
