Bear makes house call in Burrillville

October 5, 2015

BURRILLVILLE – Christine Bonoyer isn’t surprised by anything that walks out of the woods – not after living in the northern reaches of Maine for many years.

But when a black bear shoved its snout against the sliding glass door of her back deck Sunday night, even she wasn’t expecting such familiar behavior.

“He came running up the stairs like he’d done it before,” said Bonoyer. “His nose was almost touching the sliding glass door.”

October 4, 2015

BURRILLVILLE — He may be the most famous Rhode Island cartoonist and illustrator you've never heard of.
His popular cartoon characters, especially his beloved Itty Bitty Super Dupers, which appear in newspapers, on radio and television web sites, coloring books, calendars, public safety promotional literature, restaurant menus and place mats, and dozens of other outlets over the last 14 years, have entertained thousands of children.

Boston Red Sox | BoSox parting ways with former PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler

October 4, 2015

Arnie Beyeler was well aware of the risks when the Red Sox signed Hanley Ramirez and proclaimed that he would be taking over the left-field duties.

A former PawSox manager who guided the ball club to the 2012 Governors’ Cup, Beyeler spent the last three seasons Boston’s first-base coach. He was also responsible for coaching outfield play, meaning he had a personal and professional stake in transforming Ramirez into an adequate defender.

Burrillville Football | ZACK ATTACK: Senior runs wild as Broncos roll past North Providence

October 3, 2015

NORTH PROVIDENCE – Like a lot of folks, Burrillville senior Zack Tayes enjoys playing fantasy football.

Told his final rushing stats against North Providence Saturday – 259 yards on just 15 carries and five touchdowns – would have resulted in a ridiculous individual point total and likely a lopsided victory over this week’s fantasy opponent, Tayes simply smiled while trying to wipe the mud off his face.

Cumberland Girls' Soccer | La Salle tops Clippers in Division I-North showdown

October 3, 2015

PROVIDENCE— The margin for error is so thin between the top three girls soccer teams in Division I-North that one misplaced pass or one missed defensive assignment could be the difference between a victory or a defeat.

That was the case Saturday afternoon when Cumberland finished up its most difficult week of the regular season with a road contest against the top team in the state, La Salle Academy.

October 2, 2015

WOONSOCKET – There was still no word from authorities Friday on why FBI agents were carting boxes of presumed evidence from a brick warehouse located at 512 Front St. the day before.

Jim Martin, spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office in Providence, said the FBI operation was related to an ongoing federal investigation. He said there would be no additional comment until, and unless, a prosecutable case develops from the probe.

It’s peak season for head lice — the bug that keeps on giving — and while no severe outbreaks have been reported in Northern Rhode Island or neighboring Massachusetts, a handful of districts are reporting isolated cases, including Lincoln where one case was confirmed last week and Seekonk where two students were treated for the blood-sucking parasites.

Women's College Soccer | Cumberland's Ribeiro enjoying strong bounce-back season at UConn

October 2, 2015

Stephanie Ribeiro’s return to the UConn women’s soccer team couldn’t have been scripted any better.

Exactly one year ago, Ribeiro dealt with the likelihood that her junior season was over before it actually started. The Cumberland native pulled her hip flexor during the spring of her sophomore year. The frustrating part was that every time Ribeiro believed that she was in the clear, a setback would occur.
