PORTSMOUTH â€” Over the past several years, Portsmouth Abbeyâ€™s rink has been a house of horrors for Cumberland High, a building that has been as cold to the Clippers as the frigid temperatures inside its confines.
On Sunday afternoon, the Clippers endured their latest nightmare at the arena, and it resulted in a swift exit from the Division II playoffs.
The third-seeded Clippers dropped the third and deciding game of their best-of-three semifinal-round series to second-seeded Portsmouth High in the form of a 5-3 defeat that wasnâ€™t nearly as close as the score indicates.
LINCOLN â€” Caroline Moore seemed to know immediately she had added a â€śuâ€ť where it didn't belong.
In the seventh round of the annual Rhode Island Spelling Bee Championship held Saturday morning at the Lincoln Middle School auditorium, the Wheeler School eighth-grader had just been asked to spell â€śthoroughbred.â€ť
GLOCESTER - Ponaganset High School student Aaron Dupuis was just a second-grader when he first strolled through the cavernous halls of the Rhode Island Statehouse. He remembers vividly climbing up the marble stairs, staring up in amazement at the ornate rotunda dome and peeking through the doors of the stately House and Senate chambers.
But what impressed him most that day was when he met then-Lt. Gov. Charles J. Fogarty Jr. Dupuis' father had just landed a new state government job and after pulling a few strings was able to arrange for his son to meet the lieutenant governor.
WARWICK -- Talk about deja vu!
For the second straight night, Mount St. Charles Academy found itself trailing by a 2-0 score in the early stages of its Division I semifinal-round game with La Salle Academy on Saturday.
For the second straight night, the Mounties shook off their rivalsâ€™ superb start and came back to knot the contest and force a 7Â˝-minute overtime session.
And for the second straight night, the Mounties prevailed in OT.
Most veterans know that the Disabled American Veterans organization exists. Many of them do not know that the DAV can be their best friend and a major advocate when they seek benefits later on in life from disabilities that can be linked to their time in the U.S. military.
â€śThe sad part is a lot of veterans, especially Vietnam veterans, donâ€™t know whatâ€™s available to them (in terms of benefits from the Veterans Administration),â€ť said Rick Vaccari, a DAV supervisor.

SOUTH KINGSTOWN â€“ It's bad enough that Mount St. Charles Academy had to contend with another strong outing from Prout School standout Emily Caswell in Saturday's Division II state finals.
But it also had to deal with its worst offensive showing of the season.
Caswell poured in a team-best 20 points. Along with her effort and a stifling Crusaders' defense, Mount saw its spectacular winter campaign on the hardwoods come to a crashing halt inside the Ryan Center with a overwhelming 40-24 loss.
