With more than 3 feet of snow on the ground and more on the way, the recent battery of storms has wreaked havoc on municipal trash collection with cities and towns either postponing trash pickup by one day or canceling it altogether.
Trash collection has been pushed back for the past two weeks because of two norâeasters in consecutive weeks that have pummeled the area with heavy snow, forcing nearly all cities and towns to suspend and delay pickup by one day.
And it hasnât been pretty.
Tom Brady is the best ever. Bill Belichick is the best ever. Super Bowl XLIX was the best (and most-watched) ever. New England sports fans are the most blessed in the nation. Let’s get those declarations out of the way.
Legacies aside, though, the Patriots’ history-making championship season was also a triumph for some of the oldest of old-school virtues.
Patience. Preparedness. Professionalism.

PROVIDENCE – It’s becoming a regular habit, that of seeing a Providence College player receive Big East Player of the Week honors.

KINGSTON – Rhode Island freshman Jared Terrell has produced the top three scoring performances of his young career in the URI’s last three games. The easy explanation for Terrell’s recent run of success is that leading scorer E.C. Matthews missed last week’s game against St. Bonaventure and was limited in the last two games because of a left toe injury.
The next time a professional athlete emphatically states that he/she turns down the volume whenever the media dials up the criticism, do yourself a favor and cue up Julian Edelman’s post-Super Bowl XLIX press conference.
