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.

Mount St. Charles Baseball | Lataille shines as Mounties turn away Spartans

May 5, 2015

WOONSOCKET — Mount St. Charles took advantage of a fine mound performance from junior southpaw Alex Lataille to claim an interesting 3-1 Division II-North victory over Scituate High on Tuesday afternoon.

Lataille yielded only five hits with four walks, but whiffed a quintet to help the Mounties move to 10-1 in league play. At the plate, sophomore Joe Sanchioni went 2-for-3 with two doubles and a run scored, while junior John Montani's two-run two-bagger in the third plated classmate Eric Abruzzi and Sanchioni to give the Mount a 3-0 cushion.

BELLINGHAM – Veteran Patrolwoman Stephanie Lemon’s colleagues are calling her lucky after she was struck by a motor vehicle while directing traffic on Pulaski Boulevard Monday morning.
“She went up and over the hood,” said Lt. Kevin Ranieri. “She was knocked off her feet and landed on the ground on her right side.” Lemon was transported to Milford Regional Medical Center, where doctors determined she had suffered nothing worse than some serious bruising. Initially some paramedics thought she might have broken an arm.
“She’s lucky,” said Ranieri.

Not just a few bumps in the road

May 3, 2015

WOONSOCKET — Ride down just about any city street these days and you are bound to find potholes, plenty of them.

But the recent winter was especially hard on the pavement of Cumberland Hill Road, a major route into Woonsocket proper, and Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt wants to see that taken care of as a priority this spring.

The state road is technically-state maintained, so getting it fixed is not as easy a project as one might think.

But as the mayor noted Wednesday, the travel conditions have deteriorated enough to have even the state backing a two-phase repair plan.
