For those in the sportsâ media business, thereâs no beating around the bush â reporting Rhode Island high school hockey is always a game of catch-up.
Translation: Game takes place late Friday night; game doesnât hit the newspaper pages until Sunday. Such a cycle repeats Saturday with Mondayâs edition representing the earliest chance to get something on the record.
NORTH SMITHFIELD â The name has changed, but the mission remains the same for the North Smithfield Athletic Association.
Formerly known as the Northmen Athletic Club, and back on the scene after a yearâs hiatus, the NSAA, which is headed by former longtime girlsâ hockey coach Bill Nangle, is looking to not only again support the townâs middle and high school sports teams, but also the communityâs recreational programs.
WOONSOCKET â Despite the reluctance of finance officials, the Budget Commission has voted to petition the state auditor general to allow the city an extra month to submit audited financial statements of last yearâs books, or until Jan. 31.
Finance Director Thomas Bruce wanted to put out a draft audit as soon as possible because, on the city side, the ledgers are expected to show a surplus in the range of $280,000 for the fiscal year that ended June 30.

Itâs no secret that the art of communication is key to managing the Pawtucket Red Sox. Naturally the interaction with the players is a high priority, yet thereâs also touching base with the major-league coaching staff or the front office, or with someone from the player development sector or even the Double-A manager.
No wonder why several of Gary DiSarcinaâs predecessors made sure to have their cell phones close by while batting practice took place. Itâs a 24/7 lifestyle wherein the PawSox manager must be on standby at all times and ready to field inquires from all walks of baseball life.
PAWTUCKET â On the same day Gary DiSarcina was formally introduced as the 15th manager in Pawtucket Red Sox history, we thought it would be appropriate to engage in an âgetting to know you betterâ exercise â an opportunity to view through the lens of those who have engaged in past dealings with the new skipper in town.
