WOONSOCKET â€” Perhaps 10 minutes after the Lincoln All-Stars had clinched its second straight appearance in the championship final of the R.I. Little League District IV Major Division (11-12) Tournament â€“ courtesy of a 10-3 victory over Cumberland National at Bernonâ€™s Ayotte Field on Friday night â€“ manager Matt Netto expressed some dissatisfaction.
PAWTUCKETâ€”As her classmates spun Hula Hoops and danced to a deejay, 11-year-old friends Nychelle Torres and Bobbie Walls sampled blueberries and pomegranates. â€śBlueberries are good with honey on them,â€ť Torres stated. The two said they had also enjoyed making their own salsa out of a buffet table of different ingredients provided by Farm Fresh Rhode Island. â€śThe salsa was good, except for some of the spicy tastes,â€ť Torres added.
PROVIDENCE â€“ Eight-year-old Estuardo Estrada of Providence stares up into the beady eyes of a Triceratops, a three-horned, plant-eating dinosaur that roamed the earth 65 million years ago.
Illuminated by overhead multi-colored lights, the beastâ€™s head â€“ boasting the largest skull of all land mammals â€” suddenly moves from side to side, itâ€™s short, pointed tail wagging in unison.
The creature suddenly lets out a roar, startling Estrada and the crowd of other junior paleontologists standing nearby.
Wide-eyed and breathless, Estrada grips the hand of his stepfather Gabriel Vargas.
