McGair: Boston may need some PawSox relief

April 7, 2011

The Red Sox have certainly provided plenty of grist for the mill. That’s what happens when you begin the season with unprecedented expectations (World Series or bust) only to stumble out of the gate with six straight losses. Agony doesn’t even begin to describe the early-season travails with your Boston baseball club.
We’re not about to declare that hope is lost, especially when you subtract six from 162 and end up with 156, which is how many games the Red Sox have left. Time is on their side.

Lauzon arrested for embezzlement

April 7, 2011

WOONSOCKET — The other shoe dropped for embattled undertaker Todd W. Lauzon as the State Police arrested him for embezzling over $27,000 clients had given him for “pre-need” funeral contracts.
The charges come nearly five months after the director of the now-defunct T. Lauzon Funeral Home had his license suspended by the state Department of Health — allegedly for cremating a body and burying the ashes in a cemetery without obtaining the necessary permits.

MSC softball team wins opener with Cumberland

April 6, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Cumberland High coach Marty Crowley believes he has a strong enough team to contend for a state title come mid-June.
But in his eyes, and perhaps most in Division I, the squad that everyone in the league should be concerned about is last year’s state runner-up Mount St. Charles Academy.
“Absolutely,” he said. “They went to the finals last year. They (basically) got everybody back. They should be the favorites to win the whole thing. They’re good.”

Bill Lee: At his core, he's still a pitcher

April 6, 2011

LINCOLN – At the core of Bill Lee’s multi-faceted personality is a baseball pitcher who remains fascinated -- even at the age of 64 -- by the process of getting batters out.
Lee came here on Wednesday to serve as keynote speaker at the annual “Welcome Home, PawSox” luncheon hosted by the Northern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce. He walked into Kirkbrae Country Club’s dining area a few minutes before noon, dressed like a cowboy, his still-athletic frame topped off by a wide-brimmed hat that identified the former Red Sox pitcher as a man of great presence.

City tries out free trash bins

April 5, 2011

WOONSOCKET — The city has teamed up with a private startup company from Grafton, Mass., in an effort to increase recycling in the downtown business district.
Michael Debroisse, the city's solid waste superintendent, said the city has replaced a half-dozen traditional garbage cans between Market and Depot squares with specialized recycling bins provided by Go Green Solutions.
The bins, which cost the city nothing, are designed with three color-coded deposit slots — green for paper, blue for cans and bottles, black for non-recyclable waste.
