McGair: Late high school hockey games affect more than just media members

December 16, 2012

For those in the sports’ media business, there’s no beating around the bush – reporting Rhode Island high school hockey is always a game of catch-up.
Translation: Game takes place late Friday night; game doesn’t hit the newspaper pages until Sunday. Such a cycle repeats Saturday with Monday’s edition representing the earliest chance to get something on the record.

December 16, 2012

NORTH SMITHFIELD — 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 year’s hiatus, the NSAA, which is headed by former longtime girls’ hockey coach Bill Nangle, is looking to not only again support the town’s middle and high school sports teams, but also the community’s recreational programs.

December 16, 2012

WOONSOCKET — 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 year’s books, or until Jan. 31.

Public meeting Monday night on rezoning

December 15, 2012

WOONSOCKET – Zoning: It’s not exactly a subject that captures the imagination, at least not until somebody starts building a gas station next door to your house.
But there’s no time like the present to get interested, because the city is in the midst of the most sweeping effort in years to rezone city lands – maybe yours.

McGair: For new PawSox manager DiSarcina, communication is vital

December 14, 2012

It’s 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 there’s 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 DiSarcina’s predecessors made sure to have their cell phones close by while batting practice took place. It’s 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.

December 14, 2012

PAWTUCKET – 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 “getting to know you better” exercise – an opportunity to view through the lens of those who have engaged in past dealings with the new skipper in town.
