Hereâ€™s a look at the early state of affairs in hockeyâ€™s three divisions â€¦
For most teams, a 1-2 start to a season usually doesnâ€™t mean much. For Mount St. Charles fans, MSCâ€™s 1-2 start has some of them reaching for the panic button, especially since the four-time defending champions havenâ€™t began a Division I campaign with that mark since the mid-1970s.
Of course, two of their defeats have come to La Salle, which so far, looks like the team to beat. The Rams are 4-0, have outscored their opponents 27-4, and boast the divisionâ€™s top three scorers.
â€śEveryone has to be ready. Everyone is in the same boat.â€ť
Those words, echoed by East Providence head coach Alex Butler, shall serve as the equivalent to ringing the opening bell on Wall Street. Tonight will see the curtain raised on league play, which with the expansion of the open tournament and the doing away (at least for this season) of the division tournaments, has taken on even greater emphasis.
PAWTUCKET â€” In a written decision handed down on Wednesday, Pawtucket Police officer Nichalas Laprade, convicted earlier this year on a charge of indecent exposure during an off-duty driving incident, won the right to keep his job from a Law Enforcement Officers Bill of Rights hearing panel.

CENTRAL FALLS â€” Trumpeting the success of the sometimes difficult and tumultuous transformation of Central Falls High School that began in 2010 with the threat to fire all the teachers, Superintendent Frances Gallo told a group of educators Tuesday that â€śfrom the depths of despair and resentment, our school has arrived.â€ť
As a result, Gallo said as she addressed the 2011 High School Transformation Summit, â€śfamilies, parents, students and teachers, that core family, can truly dream big because everyone is committed to reaching those big dreams.
