LINCOLN â A fire breaking out in a motor vehicle inside Georgeâs Towing and Auto Repair at 25 North Crow Point Road Monday afternoon caused heavy damage to the metal commercial building and non-life threatening injuries to three local firefighters working to put it out.
Police Capt. Philip Gould said the department received a call from an employee at 25 North Crow Point Road reporting fire inside the building at 1:12 p.m.
âThey were working on a vehicle inside the building and the vehicle caught fire,â Gould said.
The running joke between Bob Walsh and Antone Gray became a rite of spring.
Whenever Walshâs name was linked to prospective Division I menâs basketball head coaching jobs, he would receive a reminder from a player who never seemed to stray too far from the mentorâs mind. Gray first placed the bug in Walshâs ear during their point guard/coaching partnership at Rhode Island College. He continued to do so after his graduation in 2011.
âEven when Antone was a sophomore playing for me, he would say, âDonât leave me here, donât leave me here,â Walsh recalled.
CUMBERLAND — Even dating back to last summer, skipper Dave Belisle had a feeling his Cumberland American Little League All-Stars wouldn't have much of an issue with the bats.
But even he's surprised with how his roster of 12 has produced this time around.
Consider these statistics: In four straight triumphs over Smithfield (11-3) and Lincoln (9-6) in the R.I. District IV Major Division (11-12) event, then two more against Coventry American (5-4) and Cranston Western (17-4) in the state tournament, his squad has outscored its opponents, 42-17.
