PROVIDENCE â€” Movie and TV star James Woods appeared at the Statehouse Wednesday to testify in favor of a bill that would allow doctors and hospitals to express sympathy or acknowledge errors to patients and family members when medical treatment goes awry without it being held against them in later court actions.
NORTH SMITHFIELD â€” After a rather sloppy initial half, one in which it registered 15 turnovers and had serious issues netting a bucket, North Smithfield High head coach Alisha Brannon took her troops aside and told them simply to calm down and think.
â€śBasically, we have a tendency to rush on offense, and the first half was a classic example,â€ť she said. â€śThey try to pass too quickly or dribble past (defenders). At halftime, I told them to quit rushing and spread the floor.
