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.

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.”
