SOUTH ATTLEBORO â€” Stone-E-Lea Golf Course superintendent Dave Lapierre makes no bones about the mission of his family-owned and operated business.
â€śWe want to make people feel at home here,â€ť Lapierre was saying last week during a brief break from his job. â€śWeâ€™re not trying to trick the course up and make it a difficult place to play. We want golfers of all ages and skills to play our course and have a chance to play well and enjoy themselves.â€ť
Stone-E-Lea is a public course that does not book tee times.
PAWTUCKET â€“ Tim Norton has spent the better part of his professional career battling back from countless injuries. His latest setback is akin to the baseball gods kicking a man when heâ€™s down.
The homecoming originally planned for this weekend never happened. Norton did not pitch at McCoy Stadium for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre before friends and family hailing from Burrillville. Instead, the 28-year-old is toiling under the hot sun in Tampa, Fla., the Yankeesâ€™ spring-training facility â€“ Steinbrenner Field â€“ the scene of Nortonâ€™s latest attempt to rehab from shoulder woes.
