LINCOLN â€” As Lincoln High senior first baseman McKenzie Cavanaugh walked to her family car late Friday afternoon, she heaved one last grunt â€“ â€śAaarggh!â€ť â€“ at what had occurred just minutes before.
She then shook her head in dismay.
Cavanaugh had every reason for the sentiment, and â€“ actually â€“ had to be relating her teammatesâ€™ feelings after the Lions sustained a disgruntling 3-0 Division I loss to still-unbeaten North Kingstown at the Saylesville Elementary School diamond.
PAWTUCKET â€“ There are nine craft breweries in Rhode Island, and three of them are in Pawtucket, which just might make the city the craft brewery capital of Rhode Island, says Jason Lourenco, co-owner of the cityâ€™s third micro brewery â€“ Brewery 401 â€“ which opened on May 1.
â€śItâ€™s purely coincidental that we landed here in Pawtucket, and we only realized later that it was where Bucket Brewery Co. used to be before they expanded,â€ť says Lourenco, who along with co-owner and Brewmaster Nicole Pelletier opened Brewery 401 in the Lorraine Mills building on Mineral Spring Avenue.
