Shea rallies for 65-55 win over Tolman

December 18, 2010

PAWTUCKET – Once Shea High got on a roll during the second half Friday night, there was very little anyone wearing a Tolman High uniform could do in corralling the Raiders.
Shea took full advantage of a 16-1 flurry – one that encompassed all of three minutes of clock – to roll to a wild, come-from-behind 65-55 win over its crosstown rivals at “The Cage.” The verdict helped secure Matt Pita’s first win as the Raiders’ coach and improve Shea’s record to 1-1 in Division II-Central. The loss drops the Tigers to 0-2 on the young season.

Pawtucket should annex Central Falls, says receiver

December 16, 2010

Central Falls is too small, too poor and way too deep in debt to remain a city on its own.
That is the verdict of state appointed receiver Mark Pfeiffer, who recommends that neighboring Pawtucket take over the Square Mile City or, failing that, services such as police, fire and public works be regionalized with surrounding communities to keep Central Falls afloat.
“Central Falls, in my judgment, cannot remain a stand-alone community as it presently is unless the state wants to subsidize it into the future,” Pfeiffer told reporters at City Hall Wednesday morning.
