Fugere nets 1,000th point in Novans' loss to Eagles

December 22, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Turnovers will hurt you.
When you do it against an evenly-matched team, it will often be the difference in the game.
Woonsocket High committed more than its share of mental miscues on Thursday night and suffered its first loss of the season, convincingly, as visiting Barrington left Savaria Gymnasium with a 51-32 victory in an intense Division I contest. The Eagles work underneath the basket on both ends of the court was particularly troublesome for the Villa Novans.

'Blessings' are good for the body and soul

December 22, 2011

CUMBERLAND – As the saying goes, giving is its own reward. But at Mt. St. Rita Health Centre, they’ve figured out a way to double the reward.
It’s called Blessings in a Backpack, a program that provides needy children from Woonsocket with food for the weekend – when they can’t get a meal in school.
Once a week, a group of volunteers at the nursing home and rehab facility stuff backpacks with cans of tuna, applesauce and other treats – enough to bridge the gap between Fridays and Mondays. But it’s no ordinary group of volunteers.

Appeals court to review Pleau case

December 21, 2011

WOONSOCKET — The death penalty was back in play yesterday for accused murderer Jason Wayne Pleau as a federal appeals court in Boston said it would reconsider whether Gov. Chafee has the right to continue safeguarding him in state custody.
A majority of the First Circuit Court of Appeals voted Wednesday in favor of a review of the issue by the full court, setting a hearing for April 4. The decision came in response to an appeal filed by U.S. Attorney Peter Neronha after a three-member judicial panel of the court handed a victory to Chafee in the battle for custody of Pleau two months ago.

R.I. high school sports pit 'haves' vs. 'have-nots'

December 21, 2011

Looking back on the 2011 sports year, my most vivid memories relate to a Shea High boys soccer team that dazzled opponents with its talent, ball skills and exuberance for the sport.
The Raiders made soccer fun to watch, even for a traditional sports fan like myself who is more attuned to football than “futbol.”
