CUMBERLAND â€“ For runners like Dave Constantino, the unicorn on the logo of the Boston Marathon has been fitting.
For nearly a decade at the hallowed 26.2-mile race, the 43-year-old Cumberland native has tried to track down his own personal unicorn â€“ that is, break the 3-hour mark â€“ but each time, heâ€™s fallen short.
And he has come oh-so-close. Two years ago, his time was 3:04:46. The previous year, he ran a 3:07:40. And in 2006, his second trip to Boston, he turned in a 3:09:27.
PAWTUCKET â€“ From a win-loss perspective, the Pawtucket Red Sox canâ€™t ask for much more. Winners of six of seven games, it seems that Mother Nature, not the opposition, is the teamâ€™s toughest foe in the seasonâ€™s early stages.
Fridayâ€™s postponement of Rochester-Pawtucket marks the second time in three days that the pitter-patter of raindrops has come into play for Gary DiSarcinaâ€™s ball club. This past Wednesday saw Pawtucket play two innings at Lehigh Valley before the game was halted in the second inning due to rain.
PAWTUCKET - Gertrude Lebeau, 90, of Pawtucket, passed away Thursday, April 11, 2013 surrounded by her loving family. She was the beloved wife of Leo Lebeau. Born in Providence, she was the daughter of the late Ernest and Gertrude (Houston) Vashey. Mrs. Lebeau was a lifelong resident of Pawtucket.
