February 6, 2014

PROVIDENCE – Local talk radio hosts are having no end of fun with a Florida TV station’s identification of Attorney General Peter Kilmartin as a “Sarasota resident,” and now state Sen. Dawson Hodgson, a Republican candidate for attorney general, is adding questions of his own.

Kilmartin, whose full-time residence is in Pawtucket, has a vacation home in Sarasota where he stayed during a recent January vacation. While there, he and his wife, Kristine, visited the Sarasota Arts Festival, and he was buttonholed by a local TV reporter for a comment on the event.

City digs out from another snowy mess

February 6, 2014

PAWTUCKET – An accurate weather service forecast, a parking ban and a “no school” call helped the city’s Department of Public Works to get a good handle on Wednesday’s snowstorm.

By mid-morning, most of Pawtucket’s roads were very passable and by lunchtime, many were down to the pavement, as temperatures warmed up and the snow tapered off.

CUMBERLAND — The opportunity for a father to coach his son in a college setting does not come around very often.

Head coach Marty Fine listed son Joe as part of the program’s latest recruiting effort on Wednesday. The Bulldogs’ 22-player class includes players from 10 different states with 11 being from New England.

Ready to fly like an Eagle: Lincoln’s Saine heads to Boston College football program

February 6, 2014

LINCOLN — Oseh-Lie Saine is officially a member of Boston College’s football program. In the eyes of the 2013 Lincoln High graduate who signed a pretty important document Wednesday, it’s a significant step that runs the gamut of emotions.

“It feels really, really good,” a clearly jubilant Saine expressed when reached later the same day. “It’s a day I’ve been waiting for a long time and for it to finally come, it hit me (Tuesday night) and I was just like, ‘wow.’ Signing that paper just felt great. It’s real and I think I’m still on cloud nine.”

With Hervieux back, Lincoln/Cumberland co-op girls' hockey squad pursues return to postseason

February 6, 2014

LINCOLN — Although she didn't want to, Lauren Hervieux did a lot of watching from the sidelines as her Lincoln/Cumberland Co-op teammates competed.
Naturally, the premier senior defenseman would've preferred to take the ice with them and help in her usual ways – battling in the corners, stealing pucks, squelching 2-on-1 breakaways.
She couldn't, of course, after dislocating and fracturing her kneecap at a Lincoln varsity soccer practice back on Nov. 7, the afternoon before a pivotal state tournament semifinal.
