PROVIDENCE â€“ Former Central Falls Mayor Charles Moreau walked into Courtroom 3 at the federal courthouse Friday morning wearing dark blue prison garb with his hands cuffed behind his back and his feet in chains.
About three hours later he walked out into the cold noonday sunshine wearing a brown suit and yellow tie, a free man, albeit with a felony conviction and three years of supervised probation hanging over his head.
â€śI wish you well with your new-found freedom,â€ť U.S. District Court Judge John McConnell told Moreau as he closed the brief hearing.
BURRILLVILLE â€” Despite Cumberland Highâ€™s amazing run so far this season, North Smithfield refused to be intimidated in a huge Division II-North clash on Friday night.
Head coach Paul Nadeauâ€™s Northmen skated with authority, played with heart and desire for a full 45 minutes and gave the unbeaten Clippers a scare.
In the end, however, junior winger and tri-captain Greg Wellington by his lonesome found the net more often than the hosts as Cumberland strolled out of Levy Arena with a 3-1 triumph.

CENTRAL FALLS â€” The last time Central Falls and Cumberland met on a basketball court, just nine days ago, the Clippers upset the Warriors on their home court on a late hoop by freshman Brandon Kolek.
When the two teams met again Friday night on the same court in a Division II playoff opener, the Warriors made sure there would be no late heroics by Cumberland. Central Falls held a 49-44 lead with nine minutes left before going on a 7-0 run that put the game away.
