Girls' Ice Hockey | MOUNT-N-LIONS? Lincoln, Mount St. Charles could form new girls' co-op team

May 9, 2015


At Lincoln High School, officials want to continue playing Rhode Island interscholastic girls’ hockey despite recently learning that their co-op partner Cumberland will drop the sport.

If the Lions are to keep playing, they’ll need a new partner, as they lack the numbers to field a team on their own.

One potential candidate is Mount St. Charles Academy, a program that bears a proud history in the sport but has seen declining participants in recent years.

Cumberland native's cafe plan: Blend coffee with cats

May 9, 2015

CUMBERLAND — For millions of American cat lovers, sipping a cup of coffee beside a feline friend is one of the taken-for-granted pleasures of daily life.

At home, on the sofa, that is. Not at Starbucks, or someplace like it.
But all that could change if Cumberland native Zackery Durkin and his girlfriend, Sarah Brown, have their way. They’re planning to open Rhode Island’s first “cat cafe” next year – after they return from South Korea.

Dog park proposal gaining bite in NS

May 7, 2015

NORTH SMITHFIELD – Sliding in baseball can be a necessary and useful thing, but Ray Pendergast says it’s happening too often for reasons that have nothing to do with stealing bases or scoring runs at some of town’s fields.

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.”

Cumberland Lacrosse | BLUE STREAK: Hayes, Stock lead Clippers past Mount for fourth straight win

May 7, 2015


WOONSOCKET  –  Cruising to wins by nine points or better in their last four games, the Clippers achieved another easy triumph on Thursday, this time 16-7, at Mount St. Charles.

In a Division II-North clash at Wheeler way back on April 24, Cumberland High allowed 10 goals in the first half and eventually suffered a 17-15 defeat. Head coach Scott Carpenter called that the turning point of his team’s Division II-North campaign.

Closed-door talks on PawSox continue, still no deal

May 6, 2015

PROVIDENCE – House Speaker Nicholas A. Mattiello called House Democrats behind closed doors on Wednesday for a caucus on budget matters and also an update on where plans for a new Pawtucket Red Sox Stadium in Providence currently stand.

 With the doors to the House Lounge blocked to reporters and even the door window into the room from the House Chamber covered with paper, the session was, as intended, open to whatever the members wished to air.

Mount St. Charles Tennis | Wheeler ends MSC's 28-game winning streak

May 6, 2015

WOONSOCKET  –  Mount St. Charles senior quad-captain Mike Doody seemed unusually calm after sustaining a 6-3, 6-3 defeat to Wheeler School junior Danish Azam at No. 1 singles on Wednesday afternoon.

“He returned everything, and I have to give him credit for that,” Doody stated afterward. “He forced me to play his game. There were times I had opportunities to go for the winner, but that’s what he wanted me to do. He knew, in his mind, he’d track it down. He was really good at it.”

Annual Copswalk will proceed with caution

May 6, 2015

WOONSOCKET – What a difference a year makes for Copswalk.
Last year, when city police officers marched to Washington, D.C. in the annual fundraiser for police officers killed in the line of duty, no one had ever heard of Michael Brown, Eric Garner or Freddie Gray.
The police-involved deaths of the three black men from Missouri, New York City and Baltimore set off a national debate about the use – and misuse– of police force that many would say is fostering a climate of increased hostility for law enforcement.
