Time to talk about Red Sox and Yankees

July 11, 2011

If you’re not a baseball fan, stop here. It’s time to talk baseball.
***
The All-Star break isn’t just a respite for players. The short vacation gives baseball fans a few days off to think about the second half of the pennant race. That’s what we fans do. Can’t play so we sit around mulling schedules and statistics while the grass turns brown in our front yard.
In New England, when you mention pennant race, that can only mean one thing – Red Sox vs. the Yankees, with a little dose of the Tampa Bay Rays thrown in.

So, who's running for mayor?

July 11, 2011

WOONSOCKET — In this era of scant resources and shrinking government, being mayor of the state's seventh largest city isn't as glamorous as it used to be. But it looks like Mayor Leo T. Fontaine will get to keep the job for another two years without a fight, if he wants it.
And he does.
“I never really had any doubts about it,” said Fontaine. “I'm not going to be one of these guys that's around for 20 years, but clearly we've started some things I think need to be continued.”
