PC officials should look into forming search committee for next coach

March 6, 2011

An open letter to Providence College President Rev. Brian J. Shanley and Athletic Director Bob Driscoll:

When the search for the next men’s basketball coach commences, do not make the same mistake you did the last time. Many people were leery when Keno Davis was given the keys to the school’s primary means of visibility and exposure. Not just because Davis had all of one year of coaching experience under his belt, but also for the simple reason that he was far from the top choice to replace Tim Welsh.

March 6, 2011

PROVIDENCE — The drama from Mount St. Charles Academy’s Division II postseason opener was nowhere to be found in the Mounties’ quarterfinal-round game against Mount Hope High on Sunday night.
Senior forward Maria Saia’s game-high 21 points, eight rebounds, and three steals led the charge for the Mounties as they cruised to a 56-34 victory over the Huskies at Rhode Island College’s Murray Center.

A great day for the Irish

March 6, 2011

PAWTUCKET — David Lemmel and his seven-year-old twins — David Jr. and Faith — had just strolled out of the city's YMCA when they heard the commotion occurring down the hill. Wondering what the hubbub was about, they chose to investigate.
Not quite an hour later, little David — wearing a Boston Celtics' hat and green T-shirt under his winter jacket — found himself break-dancing on Roosevelt Avenue. That came at the behest of Pawtucket native Paris Fisher, who knows the boy from Underground 101, a youth ministry group out of the North Providence Assembly of God.

WOONSOCKET -- He's 87 years old now and the war he fought lies almost a lifetime away in the past. But to Raymond A. Noury the day over the skies of Europe when his damaged B-24 succumbed to a final attack by German fighters is still just a moment behind him.
Anyone would have trouble forgetting what Noury went through on Feb. 22, 1944, when the break-up of his plane left him falling through the sky harnessed to a tattered parachute.
