Road Racing | Master of the Mills: Jack Thornhill runs his 44th consecutive Arnold Mills Race

July 5, 2015


CUMBERLAND – Tom Kenwood has spent decades helping in the organization of the annual Arnold Mills Four-Mile Road Race, held every Fourth of July morning since 1969, and can’t believe that Jack Thornhill has remained such a constant.

“The guy’s amazing,” Kenwood remarked of the seemingly-ageless septuagenarian.

At the tender age of 73, Thornhill completed his 44th consecutive Mills event on Saturday, finishing in 44 minutes, 35 seconds, good for third overall in the Senior Veteran Division.

CUMBERLAND – Bobby Hartnett made a triumphant return to his hometown on the Fourth of July morning, and – in the process – regained his own personal independence.

The 27-year-old Cumberland High graduate and New York City resident easily captured the men's overall title at the 47th annual Arnold Mills Four-Mile Road Race beginning and ending at the North Cumberland Fire Station, cruising to a stellar time of 20:06.

The victory signified to Hartnett that, after suffering from nagging injuries over the past 18 months, his distance-running career is back on track.

Paul's, a city favorite, has served its last meal

July 3, 2015

WOONSOCKET — It wasn’t unusual to see the “closed” sign in door of Paul’s Family Restaurant every year during the week of the Fourth of July.

But this year, it’s not just a summer break for the 867 Social St. landmark.

It’s forever.

Unable to continue working due to a serious illness, restaurateur Carol Kane has been forced to close the quaint luncheonette, founded by her father, Jean Paul Lariviere, who worked there until a month before he died in December 2013 at the age of 87.

Bradley, Curran edge English, Thompson at CVS Health Charity Classic

June 30, 2015


BARRINGTON – In a perfect world, former PGA stars Brad Faxon and Billy Andrade would have captured this summer’s version of the CVS Health Charity Classic, the tournament the two gracious Rhode Islanders co-founded back in 1999 to raise much-needed money for local charities.

It would have been most appropriate if they had. After all, in the previous 16 events, they – with the help of CVS and other sponsors – have collected and doled out over $18 million to organizations who desperately need financial aid to survive.
