History was in Larue's sights

May 19, 2013

PAWTUCKET — The diary of a young soldier from Woonsocket detailing his experiences during World War II has brought a first-person flavor to a Shea High School history class
No one remembers exactly how Emilian Larue's leather-bound diary ended up at Shea. By chance one day, history teacher James Matuszek was perusing a shelf in the history department office that held books and videos on WWII. “I pulled out some books and the diary fell out,” said Matuszek. “I started to read and realized, 'Wow, this is incredible stuff.'”

Editor’s note: This is the first in a series of profiles of the new leaders of Central Falls, a community emerging from the turmoil of bankruptcy to become a virtual New City, with new officials in place and new goals for the future.

CENTRAL FALLS — Remember all that talk months ago about Central Falls merging with other communities, with Pawtucket taking a chunk of the little city and Cumberland picking up the rest?
Well, you can forget about it, now that Mayor James A. Diossa is in charge.

Pawtucket boxer Falowo the talk of Twin River

May 19, 2013

LINCOLN —“No offense to anyone on the card, but I'm here to steal the show!”
That was the sentence Thomas Falowo typed on his Facebook account on Wednesday morning, two days before the Pawtucket middleweight and Manfredo’s Gym product’s six-round fight on Classic Entertainment & Sports’ “New Era” card at the Twin River Event Center.

Webster, PawSox stomp on Indians

May 19, 2013

PAWTUCKET — It was deemed a terrific Sunday afternoon showdown between two of the premier pitching prospects in the minors today: Pawtucket Red Sox righty Allen Webster, called by Baseball America Boston’s No. 2 hill prize, and Indianapolis’ righthander Gerrit Cole, the Pirates’ top overall prospect.
The pairing didn’t disappoint, at least not early on. Through the first three frames, Webster had retired nine straight, the final four via whiff, while Cole had yielded a harmless, leadoff double to Brandon Snyder in the second.
