Keeping your dog in line

August 21, 2011

LINCOLN — You know Linda Oliveira is sincere and serious when she says she loves her massive, long-haired German shepherd Smokey, and has since she first gave him a home at seven weeks.
Still, about the time he turned 10 months old, Oliveira — the owner of Sunset Stables at Lincoln Woods State Park — became worried. Whenever she walked him on nearby trails, he would become overly belligerent with his own kind.

Cumberland American blanked, 2-0

August 20, 2011

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Following Friday’s opening Little League World Series loss, Cumberland American manager Dave Belisle promised his team would play better Saturday against home-town favorite Clinton County, Pa.
He was right. But it was not enough to save Cumberland’s historic season.
Christopher Wright pitched 4 2/3 brilliant innings of six-hit baseball and repeatedly threw well under pressure Saturday night at Lamade Stadium, but Pennsylvania pitcher Alex Garbrick and Tyler McCloskey stymied Cumberland, combining on a three-hit as Cumberland lost, 2-0.

Andre Carter: Best 'new' Patriot?

August 20, 2011

When the wave of transactions swept through Gillette Stadium at the start of training camp, two names expectedly stood out among the rest.
Albert Haynesworth and Chad Ochocinco.
The former, no stranger to controversy on and off the field, has not practiced since Aug. 4 because of an undisclosed injury. The latter, his first-quarter touchdown in the Patriots’ 31-14 preseason win over the Buccaneers on Thursday notwithstanding, continues to build a rapport with Tom Brady.
I foresee another New England newcomer having a more immediate impact than both Haynesworth and Ochocinco.

Potential RIPTA cuts drawing stronger protests

August 20, 2011

PROVIDENCE — As decision day looms for RIPTA, the state’s public transit authority, to implement massive service cuts that would eliminate at least part of 39 of its 54 bus routes, protests are escalating in from riders and public officials alike.
Pawtucket is one of the hardest hit areas, with several routes reduced or eliminated altogether, and Burrillville and Glocester residents face losing an important transportation link to the central part of the state, many of whom use it to get back and forth from work or school.
