Judge gives Landmark bidders until May 6 to fix offers

April 28, 2011

PROVIDENCE — As Landmark Medical Center's financial health grows increasingly frail, a Superior Court judge said yesterday he's not ready to accept any of the offers on the table for the Woonsocket hospital because they all contain contingencies that could cause the sale to founder or they advance unsatisfactory models of patient care.
But Judge Michael Silverstein didn't reject the offers, not yet anyway — he gave the bidders until May 6 to resolve the issues and said he would decide whether to choose one by May 10.

April 27, 2011

EAST PROVIDENCE — This was a case of déjà vu that East Providence High liked and Mount St. Charles Academy didn’t.
Courtney DeCastro’s second walkoff hit of the season, a run-scoring single with two outs in the home half of the eighth inning, drove in younger sister Amy DeCastro with the run that helped the Townies grab a 2-1 victory over the Mounties in their Division I crossover affair at Pierce Field.

Central squeaks by Woonsocket, 4-2

April 27, 2011

PROVIDENCE — With the second half of the league season approaching quickly, Wednesday afternoon seemed as good a time as any for Woonsocket High head coach John Marsella to analyze his club’s play up to this point.
Keep in mind Marsella was asked to grade his Villa Novans following a 4-2 loss to division-leader Central High at Joe Williams Field. Though Woonsocket owns an impressive record – 7-2 Division II-North – there is still room for growth and improvement, at least according to the top guy.

April 27, 2011

PROVIDENCE — Just two weeks after businesspeople from across the state flocked to the Statehouse to fight Gov. Lincoln Chafee’s sales tax plan, Chafee marched into his opponents’ camp, a Northern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce breakfast, to defend his proposal.

Cranston West takes thriller from Lincoln

April 26, 2011

CRANSTON — The never-say-die attitude was there. So too were the late-game heroics that some have come to associate Lincoln High baseball with.
On a sun-splashed Tuesday afternoon, the end result went astray from the now one-beaten Lions. A valiant comeback bid was nullified thanks to Cranston West’s Alex Moretti’s two-out double with one on in the bottom of the seventh, lifting the Falcons to the 8-7 walk-off triumph. Moretti’s clutch knock touched down in the right-centerfield gap, chasing home catcher Jeff Diehl with the winning run.

They simply didn’t have a clue.
“This is going to be a close meet,” said Woonsocket coach Dan Richard midway into the competition. “I thought before the meet, plus or minus five points between all three schools.”
