PAWTUCKET MAN INVOLVED IN FATAL CRASH
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. (AP) — Williamstown police say a Vermont man has died in a head-on crash in front of the local high school. Police say 64-year-old Lawrence George, of Pownal, Vt., was heading south when his Hyundai Elantra was struck by a northbound Ford Explorer that had crossed the center line in front of Mount Greylock Regional High School. George was pronounced dead at the scene. The Berkshire Eagle reports that the driver of the Ford, 34-year-old William Lowe, of Pawtucket, R.I., and a female passenger, were transported to Berkshire Medical Center for injuries not considered life-threatening. Both vehicles were totaled. The investigation is ongoing and there was no word on charges.
PAWTUCKET—Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island laid off 25 employees on Thursday in what leadership said was a move to help address “some very challenging financial problems at the hospital.” “It has been our goal to do everything possible to avoid these layoffs and to minimize the need for a greater number of workforce reductions,” said Edward Schottland, acting president of
Memorial Hospital. Health related Additionally, news, Page A3 the hospital also eliminated 49 vacant positions, and reduced the hours of 19 employees, also as part of an action taken to help reduce costs and minimize the need for layoffs, Schottland said. Schottland said the layoffs and changes covered many departments throughout the hospital, from clinical to administrative, including two managers. Several licensed nurse

practitioners (LPNs) were among those let go, and Schottland said this is a move on the hospital's part to switch to an all registered nurse (RN) staff in its emergency room and on in-patient floors, supplemented by certified nursing assistants. Schottland said the action was necessary as the result of months of analysis of the hospital's current financial situation. “It was driven on the basis of overall productivity and on benchmarks of other Care New England Hospitals and other
hospitals similar to the size of ours,” he added. “We need to turn around our financial situation to create a pathway to a successful future for our hospital, our workforce, and our patient community.” Schottland added, “We're not alone in having to do this. It's indicative of the challenges all hospitals are facing right now.” However, he added that he is “optimistic” about Memorial Hospital's future, and said “Our plan is to turn See JOBS, Page A2

Following a subsequent investigation by Pawtucket Police detectives and the State Fire Marshal's office, Gaudreau was charged with first degree arson and filing a false report of a crime, said Kempe. During the course of the trial, during which Gaudreau took the stand, prosecutors alleged that Gaudreau burned down the gym to collect $125,000 from an insurance policy. Gaudreau's lawyers had argued against that scenario, saying that the gym had always been a big part of Gaudreau's life. Follow Donna Kirwan on Twitter@KirwanDonna

effectiveness, patterned after the one at Kent Hospital. He also said Memorial has begun to partner with Butler Hospital to send patients there who are more suited to its care. “We're starting to work with the system in a number of different ways to build up our service lines,” he said. In early September, Memorial Hospital merged with Care New England, joining a partnership that also includes Butler, Kent and Women and Infants hospitals. Officials at both Memorial and CNE had spoken of how the merger would strengthen Memorial Hospital, which had been facing financial challenges, and how it would be able provide an expanded array of specialty services to its patients going forward. In October, Memorial Hospital laid off seven employees in a cost-cutting move. At the time, a hospital spokesperson said management was looking at every aspect of business in order to make things more economical while still providing a quality health care environment.

He said CNE officials had been working in anticipation of the lay-offs, including holding some vacancies open at other facilities. “I'm quite certain a number of employees will be able to find jobs in the Care New England system,” said
Schottland. On a positive note, Schottland said the hospital is planning to bring in more specialists, including several urologists, in the next 6 to 8 months. He noted that Memorial is also a teaching affiliate with the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and is actively working to recruit some of the primary care physicians who are graduating.

Judith Miller, president of the Foundry Artists Association, said she is excited about the kick-off of the 2013 juried show, which is always as much fun for the participating artists as for the patrons. She said the association is pleased to be welcoming over a dozen new artisans who will be bringing different work into the mix. The Bristol, RIbased artist and garden designer will be exhibiting her own painted wood pieces in the show. Miller said that at the opening night reception this year, a special event is taking place. The Foundry Artists Association will be awarding two Bruce Michael Winn Memorial Scholarships to students from the JMW High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. “The students submitted portfolios and have been competing for this,” said Miller. “The scholarships will be given to two high school seniors who are embarking on a career in art.” Miller said the scholarship was created last year by longtime Foundry Artists Association member Michael Roseberry, of RoseberryWinn Pottery, in memory of his partner Bruce Michael Winn. Proceeds from last year's “silent auction” helped fund the scholarships, and this year's auction will also be dedicated to this cause.

been involved with the show for 29 years. She recalled the show's roots when it was started by a small group of artists working at The Foundry Building on Holden Street in Providence. Once the artists were displaced, the holiday show was moved to various locations and eventually wound up in Pawtucket. With Ahlers' help, the annual show was incorporated, credit cards were accepted, and a website was created to help market it. A Pawtucket-based designer herself, Ahlers also worked to keep the show in the city, and the Armory Center for the Arts, the location for the past several years, has turned out to be a perfect home. Ahlers also said how much she looks forward to participating in the show excuse." Sedensky also said there was no clear indication why Lanza chose Sandy Hook Elementary other than that it was close to his home. The report said noted that in 2005, he was diagnosed with Asperger's disorder and lacked empathy for others. But "what contribution this made to the shootings, if any, is unknown." Asperger's is an autismlike disorder that is not associated with violence. Lanza might have hinted at his intentions online in the days before the massacre, the report indicated. A Texas woman contacted Hartford police the day of the Dec. 14 attack to say her son had interacted with someone while playing a videogame 20 hours earlier who said there would be a school shooting, according to the report. It wasn't clear from the report whether she contacted authorities before or after the massacre. Also, two days before the shooting, an anonymous user posted comments online about planning to commit suicide Dec. 14 and saying it would make national news. The poster claimed to live in Connecticut. But Sedensky said the hard drive taken from
each year. “The Foundry Artists, to me, is like a family, and I love being part of that community,” she said. “And being in Pawtucket...the Soho of New England!” Herb Weiss, Pawtucket's economic and cultural affairs officer, said the Foundry Artists Holiday Show has been in three different locations since moving to Pawtucket from Providence. However, he, too, finds the Pawtucket Armory Center for the Arts, at 172 Exchange St., to be an ideal fit. “The Armory is the perfect setting for one of Rhode Island's finest holiday art shows. I'm pleased to see it drawing thousands of people into our downtown over those two weekends.” Weiss added that with visitors coming into the city Lanza's home was so damaged that data will probably never be extracted from it. A timeline released with the report indicates that nearly six minutes passed between the arrival of the first Newtown police office and the time officers entered the school. The report said officers were operating under the belief there may have been more than one shooter. Whether the delay made any difference was unclear. The report said Lanza killed himself about a minute after the first officer arrived. Lanza "was undoubtedly afflicted with mental health problems; yet despite a fascination with mass shootings and firearms, he displayed no aggressive or threatening tendencies," Sedensky wrote. "Some recalled that the shooter had been bullied; but others - including many teachers - saw nothing of the sort." Lanza's mother, Nancy Lanza, was concerned for her son and said that he hadn't gone anywhere in three months and would communicate with her by e-mail only, even though they were living in the same house. The mother never expressed fear that she or anyone was in danger from her son, the report said. Donna Soto, the mother of slain teacher Victoria Soto, said in a statement that nothing could make sense of the shooting. "Yes, we have read the report, no, we cannot make sense of why it happened. We don't know if anyone ever will," Soto wrote. "We don't know if we will ever be whole again, we don't know if we will go a day without pain, we don't know if anything will ever make sense again." To try to figure out the motive, investigators said, they interviewed members of Lanza's family — his father and brother cooperated fully
for the show, many are also purchasing things like gasoline, food, and other commodities from local establishments. “This is the economic engine of the arts,” he stated. Weiss added that other artists and artisans with studios located in that part of the city known as the Armory Arts District also open their doors to the public during the same weekends as the Foundry Artists Holiday Show and Sale. “It's a great opportunity to pick up a unique gift for a loved one. And there's no sales tax,” said Weiss. For more information and a complete listing of exhibitors, visit www.foundryshow.com. Follow Donna Kirwan on Twitter@KirwanDonna. — along with teachers and others. They said they also tried within the limits of privacy laws to gather information on his medical treatment. They found no evidence the young man had taken any medication that would have affected his behavior or explain the bloodbath. Sednesky's report is a summary of a much larger Connecticut state police evidence file that is expected to be released at a later date. Sedensky has gone to court to fight release of the 911 tapes from the school and resisted calls from Connecticut's governor to divulge more information sooner. The withholding of 911 recordings, which are routinely released in other cases, has been the subject of a legal battle between The Associated Press and Sedensky before the state's Freedom of Information Commission, which ruled in favor of the AP, and now Connecticut's court system. A Connecticut judge said Monday he will listen to the 911 recordings from the school before ruling on whether they can be publicly released. If the recordings are released, the AP would review the content and determine what, if any, of it would meet the news cooperative's standards for publication. The report said the first officer arrived behind the school at 9:39 a.m. Two other Newtown officers then arrived at the school within seconds, and gunshots were heard in the background. The last gunshot officers heard, which is believed to be the suicide shot by Lanza, was heard at three seconds past 9:40. Newtown officers entered the school at 47 seconds past 9:44, according to the report.

Newtown
Columbine High School shooting in particular, but wasn't aggressive or threatening before the attack, according to the summary by the lead investigator, State's Attorney Stephen Sedensky III. The report describes a gunman who had "significant mental health issues" but had sure knowledge of what he was planning: He had materials on mass murder, he smashed his computer hard drive, and he used earplugs during the shooting. Lanza killed 20 firstgraders and six educators with a semi-automatic rifle inside Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14. He also shot his mother to death inside their home before driving to the school, and committed suicide with a handgun as police arrived. "The obvious question that remains is: 'Why did the shooter murder 27 people, including 20 children?' Unfortunately, that question may never be answered conclusively," the report said. Lanza "was under no extreme emotional disturbance for which there was a reasonable explanation or

Doctors, city officials break ground on med facility
Pawtucket leaders see opportunity for economic renewal

PAWTUCKET — A former cinderblock tire store at 21 Division St. that was described as a “derelict old building” will be transformed over the coming year into “a shining new medical facility,” according to Dr. Pablo Rodriguez. Rodriguez, his partner, Dr. Emily Harrison; Dr. Michelle Collie, Mayor Donald Grebien and other interested parties dug in with equally shiny ceremonial shovels on Thursday to break ground on the $4.3 million facility. Once completed, the two-level building will be the new home of the Women and Infants Health Care Alliance — Women’s Care, and Performance Physical Therapy. Rodriguez recalled how he began his Women’s Care practice 25 years ago out of an 800-squarefoot office in a house on Smith Street in Providence. He spoke of the growth of his practice in obstetrics and gynecology and woman's reproductive services, which was later augmented by the arrival of his partner, Dr. Emily Harrison, who brought her family medicine practice. Rodriguez said he and Harrison will continue their successful partnership in the new facility, with

A ceremonial groundbreaking was held Tuesday at 21 Division St., Pawtucket, for a new facility housing Women and Infants Health Care Alliance — Women's Care and Performance Physical Therapy.

the addition of now being tied to Women and Infants Health Care Alliance as well as the family medicine department at the Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island, now part of the Care New England network. Harrison, who joined with Rodriguez eight years ago, noted that the new, state-of-the-art facility will offer area residents
“patient-centered, progressive and inclusive OBGYN and family medicine services” along with physical therapy. Through the collaborative effort, patients as well as providers benefit, she said. For example, she noted that if she is treating a patient who has a hip problem, she can run down and ask the physical therapists to take a look, while conversely, they can
ask a doctor to come down and evaluate a rash or other ailment on one of their clients. Harrison added that the new facility will enhance the physicians’ abilities to focus on preventative medicine and wellness by offering classes on weight loss, exercise programs, parenting, healthy eating and other lifestyle issues.
Dr. Michael Dacey, speaking on behalf of Care New England, said “Facilities like this help us transform health care.” It allows for more focus on “keeping people healthy rather than treating them when they get sick,” he stated. Of the new alliance, he added, “We want to be good partners to them and the entire city of Pawtucket.” Dr. Michelle Collie, of Performance Physical Therapy, said the new facility will provide top-quality physical therapy and feature a comprehensive gym and related facilities. plus an indoor pool. She also said that the entire site, both indoors and outdoors, will be “aesthetically pleasing” and geared toward promoting public participation and wellness. Mayor Donald Grebien called the new project “Truly, a great opportunity for the city,” and noted how the facility, with its tiein to Memorial Hospital, enhances the medical services available for local residents. The mayor also said that with the planned transformation of the building and construction of a park across the street, Pawtucket is “starting to form little clusters of development” that will eventually bolster its economy. The project is being developed by the Rioview Group LLC, which, besides Rodriguez and Harrison, includes Joe Catelli and Scot Hallberg as principal investors. Last month, the Pawtucket City Council approved a tax treaty for the property.

The only thing that’s missing is touch.” Patients treated by the teleneurology program can rest assured that their per-
PAWTUCKET — At Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island, telemedicine is no longer the wave of the future – it’s happening today. “Teleneurology has helped strengthen our existing neurology program by extending coverage with board-certified neurologists available by phone and through a high-speed internet HD-video connection,” said Dr. Joseph Diaz, interim Physician-in-Chief of the Department of Medicine at Memorial. “Teleneurology is an investment that ensures continuity, efficiency, and improved access to specialists with expertise in neurological emergencies such as seizure and stroke.” Historically, telemedicine was used in rural hospitals that lacked 24/7 access to specialists. The advent of primary stroke centers in the early 2000s, along with a shortage of neurologists in Rhode Island and around the country, has led to a growing use of the application in the field of neurology. While telemedicine lends itself well to the assessment and treatment of neurological conditions, it is used most notably in the rapid assessment of stroke patients. “When it comes to stroke, every second counts,” said Dr. Mason Gasper, a neurologist and director of Memorial’s Primary Stroke Center. “tPA – tissue plasminogen activator – is the only FDA-approved treatment for ischemic stroke. It has to be administered within three hours of stroke symptom onset, and up to 4.5 hours in certain eligible patients. Toward that end, our stroke protocol demands rapid assessment of stroke patients. Telemedicine helps us meet that demand.” Teleneurology happens through the use of a wireless cart equipped with a camera and HD flat screen on one side and a computer on the other. The cart can be wheeled throughout the hospital to the patient’s bedside. A nurse can enter patient information on the computer while the neurologist examines the patient on the flat screen. The picture-in-picture feature allows patient and doctor to see each other in real time, and the neurologist controls the camera which can rotate 180 degrees should they wish to speak directly to family members or clinicians. “Studies show the use of telemedicine ultimately improves patient outcomes by increasing access to care

Curtailing filibusters promotes tyranny of the majority
Thursday's stunning rules change by Senate Democrats can best be described as Obamacare II: another exercise of partisan political power to permit the majority to do whatever it wants. This time, the goal was advancing its agenda unchecked through the courts and executive agencies. With all Republican members opposed, the Senate voted 52 to 48 to invoke the "nuclear option," allowing a majority of senators present and voting (so, not necessarily 51) to approve presidential nominees except for Supreme Court justices. For those positions, this eliminated the filibuster, which required 60 votes to proceed to an up-ordown majority vote. This was the most dangerous restructuring of Senate rules since Thomas Jefferson wrote them. It creates a perpetual opportunity for "tyranny of the majority," which Alexis de Tocqueville called one of the greatest threats to American democracy. As Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., noted, quoting former senator Arthur Vandenberg on Thursday: "If a majority of the Senate can change its rules at any time, there are no rules." It is as if the Red Sox, finding themselves behind in the ninth, added a few innings to make sure they could defeat the Cardinals in the World Series. Future majorities could, for example, end the filibuster for legislation, removing any obstacle to tyranny of the majority. Democrats offered flimsy excuses, many of which are untrue: Excuse No. 1: President Barack Obama's appointees have been unfairly denied seats by failed cloture votes, or filibusters. According to the Congressional Research Service, no Supreme Court nominee has been defeated by filibuster in the Senate. None. (An arguable exception is Abe Fortas' doomed nomination as chief justice, about which President Lyndon Johnson engineered a face-saving cloture vote.) The number of federal district judge and Cabinet nominees defeated by filibuster? Zero. Regarding sub-Cabinet nominees, there were two for President Obama, three for George W. Bush and two for Bill Clinton. That's it. As for appeals court judges, Republican filibusters have blocked five, but that happened only after Democrats first blocked five. Beginning in 2003, Democrats blocked 10 Bush nominees. This was the first time that a president's circuit court nominees were blocked by the failure to obtain cloture. Republicans considered the nuclear option, decided against it, and five of the 10 were confirmed. Excuse No. 2: President Obama's nominees have waited too long for confirmation. According to the Congressional Research Service, Obama's second-term Cabinet nominees have been confirmed at about the same pace as those of Presidents Clinton and Bush. This year, the Senate has confirmed 36 of Obama's second-term nominees to circuit and district courts, compared with 14 for Bush at this point in 2005. On Friday, the Senate's executive calendar listed 54 nominees who have been waiting less than three weeks for confirmation, 16 who had waited for up to nine weeks and only eight who have been waiting more than nine weeks. Two of those eight nominees were being "held" by Democratic senators.
GUEST COMMENTARY
By Lamar Alexander
Excuse No. 3: Republican obstruction left the Democratic majority leader unable to act. Only Democratic committee majorities can place nominees on the executive calendar. Only the majority leader can move their confirmation. He may do so anytime he chooses. What if obstructionist Republicans were to place holds on 10 sub-Cabinet nominees? Under the rules that existed before Thursday, the majority leader could have filed a cloture motion on those nominees on Monday and confirmed them by Friday — unless 41 Republicans voted against cloture. Again, that has happened to only two Obama nominees for non-judicial sub-Cabinet positions and only seven times in Senate history. In his last Senate speech, former majority leader Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., warned against destroying the filibuster, which he called the "necessary fence" against the executive and popular passions. Majority leaders could do whatever they needed to do under the rules, Byrd said. Excuse No. 4: Republicans have unfairly blocked the president from filling vacancies on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. In 2006, Democrats insisted on doing precisely what Republicans are asking in 2013: moving judges from courts where they are not needed to where they are needed most. They did not think this unfair then. In 2006, Democrats on the Judiciary Committee, including Sens. Patrick Leahy, Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin, said that "under no circumstances" should new judges be confirmed to the D.C. court because its workload was half the national average and there were judicial emergencies elsewhere. With Bush's approval, the Senate reduced the number of seats on the D.C. Circuit by one, moving that slot to the 9th Circuit. The D.C. Circuit hears fewer cases today than it did in 2007. So why would Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., engineer a rules change that he said in 2006 "would be the end of the Senate"? Because the vote was not about the filibuster. It was about permitting the majority to do whatever it wants. Call it Obamacare II, for which the only cure is a referendum next November. The writer, a Republican, represents Tennessee in the Senate.
A nuclear end to denial
Those who lament the Senate Democrats’ vote to end filibusters for presidential nominations say the move will escalate partisan warfare and destroy what comity is left in Congress. Some also charge hypocrisy, since Democrats once opposed the very step they took last week. In fact, seeing the world as it is rather than pining for a world that no longer exists is a condition for reducing polarization down the road. With their dramatic decision, Senate Democrats E.J. Dionne have frankly acknowledged that the power struggle over the judiciary has reached a crisis point and that the nature of conservative opposition to President Obama is genuinely without precedent. What happened on Nuclear Thursday has more to do with the rise of an activist conservative judiciary than with the norms of the Senate. From the moment that five conservative justices issued their ruling in Bush v. Gore, liberals and Democrats realized they were up against forces willing to achieve their purposes by using power at every level of government. When the Bush v. Gore majority insisted that the principles invoked to decide the 2000 election in George W. Bush’s favor could not be used in any other case, they effectively admitted their opportunism. Dec. 12, 2000, led inexorably to Nov. 21, 2013. Bush v. Gore set in motion what liberals see as a pernicious feedback loop. By giving the presidency to a conservative, the five right-of-center justices guaranteed that for at least four years (and what turned out to be eight), the judiciary would be tilted even further in a conservative direction. Bush was highly disciplined in naming as many conservative judges as he could. His appointments of Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justice Samuel Alito bolstered the Supreme Court’s conservative majority. The court later rendered such decisions as Citizens United, which tore down barriers to big money in politics, and Shelby County v. Holder, which gutted a key part of the Voting Rights Act. Both, in turn, had the effect of strengthening the electoral hand of conservatives and Republicans. With the conservatives’ offensive as the backdrop, Senate Democrats and liberals on the outside revolted in 2005 against the Republican threat to use the nuclear option when the GOP controlled the Senate. Progressives felt they had no choice but to throw sand into the gears of a juggernaut. Liberals said things eight years ago that are being used by conservatives to accuse them of hypocrisy now. I didn’t have to look far for an example of what they’re talking about. In a column in March 2005, I called the GOP’s effort to speed the confirmation of conservative judges “a blatant effort to twist the rules” that ignored “the traditions of the Senate.” I might take back the “traditions of the Senate” line, a rhetorical attempt to call conservatism’s bluff. But what animated my argument then is the same concern I have now: This era’s conservatives will use any means at their disposal to win control of the courts. Their goal is to do all they can to limit Congress’s ability to enact social reforms. At the same time, they are pushing for measures — notably restrictions on the right to vote — that alter the electoral terrain in their favor. And it is simply undeniable that in the Obama years, conservatives have abused the filibuster in ways that liberals never dreamed of. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid cited the Congressional Research Service’s (CRS) finding that in our history, there have been 168 cloture motions filed on presidential nominations. Nearly half of them — 82 — happened under Obama. According to CRS, of the 67 cloture motions on judicial nominees since 1967, 31 occurred under Obama. Faced with this escalation, senators long opposed to going nuclear, among them Reid and California’s Dianne Feinstein, concluded it was the only alternative to surrender. Republicans gave the game away when all but a few of them opposed Obama’s three most recent appointments to the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit not on the merits but by accusing the president of trying to “pack the court.” In fact, Obama was simply making appointments he was constitutionally and legislatively authorized to make. His nominees were being filibustered because they might alter the circuit court’s philosophical balance. The GOP thus demonstrated beyond any doubt that it cares far more about maintaining conservative influence on the nation’s second most important judicial body than in observing the rules and customs of the Senate. This is why the Senate Democrats’ action will, in the end, be constructive. The first step toward resolving a power struggle is to recognize it for what it is. The era of denial is finally over.

As others see it:
The following editorial appeared in Sunday's Washington Post: The Obama administration announced Thursday that it would sell its remaining shares in General Motors by the end of the year, heralding an end to the largest direct government bailout of a U.S. industry in modern history. The U.S. government stands to lose $10 billion on its investment, based on GM's current stock price. Combined with the Treasury Department's already realized loss of $1 billion on its smaller investment in Chrysler, that brings the total cost to taxpayers of rescuing two of the Detroit Three to $11 billion. Was it worth it? Anyone who claims a definitive answer to that question is not being honest. The government could have spent less on the bailout if it had driven a harder bargain with the autoworkers' union, which made only modest concessions. But taxpayers would likely have ended up on the hook for a substantial amount anyway. That cost would have to be weighed against the costs of not intervening, which might have resulted in liquidation and a cascade effect throughout the auto industry supply chain. Not even financially healthy Japanese, German and Korean factories could have escaped that unscathed, to say nothing of the surrounding cities and towns. On the other hand, resources not devoted to propping up GM and Chrysler could have found alternative productive uses, perhaps yielding more jobs and other benefits to society in the long run. Given the centrality of the auto industry, the depth of its problems and the dangers of allowing it to collapse at the height of the Great Recession, any government, Republican or Democratic, would probably have intervened. That's a political reality.

received last year, but the money is being made available to local Community Action Programs earlier this year than last year’s Dec. 7 start date. Last year, the LIHEAP program assisted 38,000 households in Rhode Island. Residents who qualify for the grants – those with incomes at 60 percent of the Rhode Island median income or lower, $52,676 for a family of four – can start making applications now. In northern Rhode Island, the agency handling the applications is the Blackstone Valley Community Action Program, 32 Goff Ave., Pawtucket. The telephone number is 7234520. Sneesby said the average grant is about $600 for the year, depending on the household income of the recipient and the fuel source. “Going into the heating season, there are always three uncertainties,” Sneesby told The Times Monday, “the amount of federal funding, the harshness of the winter and the number of applications that are received. “Each winter, the department tries to balance the amount of funds at its disposal, the need in the state, and the projected weather conditions,” DHS Director Sandra M. Powell said in a written statement. “Our aim is to use the funds prudently so that the greatest number of people is helped through the harshest months of the winter,” she added. Sneesby said the department makes an estimate each year of how many applications it expects to receive based on the history of prior years. Sen. Jack Reed introduced legislation earlier this year to increase the funding, but that gain was tempered by the automatic, across-theboard federal budget cuts known as the sequester. “LIHEAP funds are now available for folks needing assistance with their energy bills,” Reed said in a press release. “We want to ensure that seniors and families stay safe and warm this winter. “LIHEAP helps families in need deal with heating and financial challenges during the cold winter months,” he added. “With winter approaching, it is critical to speed this assistance to seniors and lowincome families in time to help with their heating bills.” Because of the federal cuts, Sneesby explained, the department this year will rely more heavily on what is called the LIHEAP Enhancement Fund. That fund was established by a state law called the Henry Shelton Act, named for the activist founder of Pawtucket’s George Wiley Center, and is operated through the National Grid util-

LIHEAP recipients getting some warm news
Federal allocation cut, but home heating aid to be delivered early
By JIM BARON
jbaron@pawtuckettimes.com
PROVIDENCE – Even though the federal government reduced Rhode Island’s share of home heating assistance funds by about $3.3 million this year, local community action programs will not be reducing the size of the grants awarded to low-income households. Frederick J. Sneesby, administrator of family and children’s services for the R.I. Department of Human Services (DHS), said $20.6 million was allocated to Rhode Island this year from the federal LIHEAP (Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program) fund, compared to the $23.9 million
ity company. It is funded through a surcharge on ratepayers’ energy bills. “Essentially, it frees up more money from the LIHEAP program, so we are able to spread the money around better,” Sneesby said, noting that each year the utility takes in about $7 million from the surcharge to help low-income customers lower their heating costs. “It’s a pretty substantial amount,” Sneesby said. “It hasn’t been spent fully each year, but we will be raising the grants that come from that fund this year. It will help make the federal money go farther.” Sneesby warned, however, that “in years going forward, if they continue to reduce the funds, then we’re going to run into problems. But for this year, we certainly can maintain the grants.” Follow Jim Baron on Twitter @Jim_Baron
Small electrical fire temporarily displaces group home residents
PAWTUCKET — The fire wasn’t much — a small electrical blaze that started in a bathroom ceiling fan. Yet it caused 15 adult residents of a group home plus several staff members to have to find temporary lodging on Saturday afternoon. Fire Capt. Robert Thurber said the blaze started at around 2:10 p.m. in a vent and was extinguished quickly at the Burns House on 25 North Bend St.. The damage was minimal, so the electrical service had to be shut off, and the residents were provided with alternative lodging, he said. He added that he expected the service to be restored shortly and the residents to return. The facility is operated by Gateway Health Care, one of several in the state that offers residential rehabilitative services to adults with severe and persistent mental illness, according to its website. — Donna Kenny Kirwan
URI economist sees boost in state’s September output

A group of Lincoln volunteers including, above from left, David Paiva and Thomas Almond, 13, on the truck, and Lauren Hervieux, 17, and Colby Laferriere, 12, prepare the distribution of turkeys Monday for the town’s holiday basket program. At right, operating the program’s check-in table were, from left and standing, Robin Farrell, George Hadley, and Dave Sale, program coordinator; and from left seated, Terry Farrell, Rachel Brassard, Susan Cerra and Lois Durkin.
PROVIDENCE (AP) — A University of Rhode Island economist says the state’s economy improved in September but that it performed no better when compared to a year ago. Prof. Leonard Lardaro said Monday his “Current Conditions Index” rose from 67 in August to 75 in September. Nine of 12 economic indicators improved overall, and several of the improvements were what he called very substantial. Lardaro tracks the indicators on a monthly basis. But Lardaro said the bad news is that for a second straight month, and the third time in four months, the index number failed to exceed its value from a year earlier. He said this pattern can be expected to repeat during the fourth quarter of the year.
Lincoln baskets bound for families in need
By JOSEPH B. NADEAU
jnadeau@woonsocketcall.com
LINCOLN – It was a time for heavy lifting at Town Hall on Monday afternoon as the volunteers for the town’s holiday basket program carried out the distribution of over 303 Thanksgiving meal baskets to local seniors and families hit hard by the economic downturn. “We get donations of food and use a mix of town staff and volunteers to get them to people in need every year,” Town Administrator T. Joseph Almond said while the distribution was under way. There is a need for such assistance even in Lincoln, he noted. “It gets bigger every year as more people learn about it,” he said. The program is supervised by Dave Sale, the facilities manager for town buildings, and counts on the help of town employees to pick larger supplies of bags of potatoes and cases of turkeys in trucks and drive them to the distribution operation, where volunteers including local students, teachers, members of civic groups and local residents hand out the boxed holiday meals to a steady stream of recipients. “We put together 303 baskets for Thanksgiving and we’ve added several more,” Sale said. The demand was a little higher for baskets this year, and, Sale said, so was the cost of food to put them together. “Prices are up for everything at a lot stores,” he said while pointing out how expensive it can be for someone with limited resources to put on a special holiday meal. The entire holiday basket program, both those going
out for Thanksgiving and the next round of baskets to be put together for the Christmas distribution on Dec. 19, is based on donated foods, whether from special benefactors such as the Calise & Sons Bakery in Lincoln, which provides a dozen dinner rolls for each basket, or the individuals who show up at the Senior Center and other collection spots with a box of canned goods or meal items. The Thanksgiving meals include a full 10 pounds of potatoes, cans of gravy and cranberry sauce, a butternut squash, stuffing mix, a 12to 14-pound turkey, and even a baked apple pie, Sale said. “It’s a complete dinner,” Sale said of the Thanksgiving basket. The program is still collecting donations of food and canned goods for this year’s Christmas baskets, and Sale said the organizers try to put additional food goods in those baskets beyond what is
needed for a single holiday meal. “We load up the baskets with soups and pasta and peanut butter, whatever is donated,” he said. The baskets also include presents for children and teenagers that are collected at the same time, Sale said. “We take donations right up to Dec. 19, which is when the Christmas baskets go out,” he said. The program benefits from some experienced volunteers, he noted, and even a few who have moved away from Lincoln but come to town every year to help with the distribution, he said. “We have one couple who now lives in Connecticut but are from Manville, and their hearts are still here and they come every year to help out,” he said. There also members of the Lincoln High School Student Council, youth organizations and members of local businesses such as the local Coastway Bank branch who
regularly participate, Sale said. “I think it went very well this year,” he said. “We can always use volunteers but we had plenty for today and hopefully will have enough for Christmas, too,” Sale said. Working on the distribution from the trucks holding potatoes and turkeys in the Town Hall parking lot, Thomas Almond, 13, said he was happy to be helping out. “I think it is great to be helping people who can’t get enough food and give them an opportunity to have a great Thanksgiving,” Almond said. Lauren Hervieux, 17, a soccer player at the high school who showed up even though she had her leg immobilized due to an injury, said she couldn’t miss the holiday basket distribution. “I think it is a fun thing to do, and it’s great to help people in need,” she said.

Double murder suspect pleads not guilty in court
MICHELLE R. SMITH
Associated Press
Off-duty trooper charged in crash; colleague hurt
REVERE, Mass. (AP) — An offduty state trooper was charged Monday with driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol following an early morning crash in Revere that injured another trooper performing a traffic stop. Trooper Shawn D’Amato, 43, faces other charges in connection with the crash on Route 1 just before 1 a.m., department spokesman David Procopio said in a statement. The 19-year veteran rear-ended a stationary cruiser with its blue emergency lights on in the breakdown lane and with Trooper John Phonesavanh inside. The impact pushed the cruiser into the vehicle that had been pulled over, injuring a 29-year-old Chelsea man. His name was not made public. Phonesavanh, who is assigned to the Revere Barracks, called in the crash himself and began checking on the condition of the other drivers. All three men were taken to the hospital with injuries. Phonesavanh and the civilian motorist were later released from the hospital. D’Amato was arraigned on charges of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, and obstructing an emergency vehicle. A plea of not guilty was entered on his behalf. He was ordered released on his own recognizance but told not to drive while the case is pending. D’Amato’s service weapon and other department property was confiscated. and he was relieved of duty pending an internal hearing later this week. He had been assigned to Logan International Airport. He’s due back in court on Jan. 10.
PROVIDENCE — A man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and her adult daughter and kidnapping her toddler son, prompting a nationwide Amber Alert, pleaded not guilty in Providence Superior Court on Monday. Daniel Rodriguez, 28, showed no emotion as he was ordered held without bail by Judge Robert Krause. He was indicted by a grand jury last week on murder, kidnapping, weapons and burglary charges for the Aug. 11 killings of Evelyn Burgos, 40, and Vanessa Perez, 25, and in the kidnapping of Burgos’ 2-year-old, Isaiah Perez. He has been held without bail since being arrested hours after the killings. Police say Burgos and her daughter were shot to death at Burgos’ home in Johnston early that morning. Burgos had been granted a temporary restraining order against Rodriguez in July, but authorities said they could not find him to serve it. Isaiah was found that evening wandering alone but unharmed in Providence. Outside court on Monday, Burgos’ older brother, Anibal Concepcion, called Rodriguez an animal and described the crime as brutal. He said his family is seeking justice. “I want him to get life without parole,” he said. Concepcion said neither he nor his brother knew about Burgos’ allegations that Rodriguez had abused her. “She never told nobody,” he said. He said it has been difficult for the family, especially now, at holiday time. His mother doesn’t want to eat and has lost weight, Concepcion said. Perez and Burgos’ children, including Isaiah, are living with relatives, Concepcion said.
Lawrence mayor finally concedes contested race
LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) — Lawrence Mayor William Lantigua has conceded the city’s contested mayor's race to City Councilor Daniel Rivera. Lantigua congratulated the fellow Democrat on the win and said it was time to give Rivera a chance to lead. Lantigua made the statement Monday evening in Spanish on a local Spanish-language radio station. “I am not going to disappear. I am not going anywhere,” Lantigua said in Spanish, according to The Boston Globe. “I will continue working for the welfare of our people, of our city, the great city of Lawrence.” Official results announced after a recount on Saturday showed Lantigua had lost to Rivera by 81 votes, not 58 as indicated in the unofficial results of the Nov. 5 elections. Lantigua had considered launching a possible court challenge to the vote count. Rivera has pledged to work for all residents of Lawrence and asked those who supported Lantigua to work with him. Rivera had been endorsed by U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, U.S. Rep. Niki Tsongas and the local teachers union. Volunteers recounted thousands of votes by hand at the South Lawrence East School on Saturday. Attorneys for both sides and observers sent by Secretary of State William Galvin monitored the exercise. The ballots had been placed in sealed containers, locked in the vault at the Lawrence elections department, and guarded by police until the recount took place. Lantigua, 58, was the state’s first popularly elected Latino mayor when he won in 2009, but the polarizing figure has faced several high-profile political troubles during his four-year term. He was recently named in a lawsuit filed by Attorney General Martha Coakley that alleged he violated campaign finance laws. Two of his associates, including his former chief of staff, pleaded not guilty in June to corruption charges. He has also survived a recall attempt. He has never been charged with any crimes. Lantigua has also been credited with stabilizing the city’s finances and improving city streets.

Feds called in on credit scam probe at Westerly restaurant
WESTERLY (AP) — Westerly police have called in a number of federal and state agencies as an investigation into an alleged credit card scam at a Chinese restaurant has deepened. The Westerly Sun reports that police asked for help from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the FBI and Rhode Island State Police. Chief Edward St. Clair tells the newspaper that since the department announced its investigation into China Buffet earlier this month, it has received more complaints about fraudulent credit card charges from people who ate there. He says they are now investigating more than 34 complaints. No one has been arrested. The restaurant’s owner did not return calls seeking comment.

Critics of the so-called “buffer zone” law say it’s an infringement on their First Amendment rights and are hoping to get the law ruled unconstitutional. Attorney General Martha Coakley and supporters of the law say it’s needed to protect the safety of clinic workers and patients. They argue that the zones don’t deny protesters their free speech rights. The groups that have filed the supportive briefs with the nation’s high court in support of the 2007 law include the Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts, the Anti-Defamation League, the National Abortion Federation and the National League of Cities. Coakley said several states and municipalities also have filed briefs, including San Francisco and the state of New York. Coakley said Monday that she was “pleased to receive the support of such a broad range of groups and perspectives in our defense of the buffer zone law.” The law was upheld in January by the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. In June, the Supreme Court agreed to hear the case.

More than braggin’ rights at stake
Northmen, Spartans will duel for No. 3 seed in Div. IV tournament
By JON BAKER jbaker@pawtuckettimes.com
NORTH SMITHFIELD — For the first time in recent memory, North Smithfield High's Thanksgiving morning tilt at Division IV rival Scituate will have more on the line than mere casual alumni interest and bragging rights for the victor. With a triumph, the Northmen – which have already sealed a semifinal berth – will earn the No. 3 seed in the playoffs and battle
Exeter/West Greenwich at its home at 7 p.m., Tuesday. Yet if the Spartans (4-4, 3-3) can upset their foes, they will gain that third rank, leaving North Smithfield the No. 4 slot the fourth and a trip to league champion North Providence on the same evening. NS head coach Wes Pennington nevertheless feels good about his squad's chances at maintaining the status quo; a lot of that has to do with the recent successes at the school. See N.S., page B3
Cicerone’s elbow injury hits home
Senior QB misses having his younger brother in backfield
By JON BAKER jbaker@pawtuckettimes.com
NORTH SMITHFIELD — It was early in the second quarter of a nonleague tilt against Plainfield, Conn. on Friday night, Nov. 1 when North Smithfield High junior tailback Nick Cicerone hustled out of his stance to snag a middle screen pass from classmate Cody DeMarie. Little did he know at the time it could be his last snap of the Northmen's so-far successful campaign. “A lineman tipped it, but I went up for it and caught it,” the younger Cicerone stated while watching a recent practice from the sideline. He immediately paused and looked at a teammate. “Did I catch it?” he asked, and the boy nodded. “Anyway, I got tackled, and some kid fell on my arm. I could feel it hurt, but I didn't know what happened. I did know we were already behind – a lot.” He discovered the issue after his father, Mike Cicerone Jr., transported his ERNEST A.

ROCCO BALDELLI One of the greatest student-athletes to come out of Bishop Hendricken High (Class of 2000), Baldelli, a Cumberland native, was a first-team Providence Journal All-State selection in volleyball, baseball and indoor track. He was drafted sixth overall in the first round of the Major League Baseball draft in 2000 by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and made his Major League debut in 2003, when he was third in the A.L. Rookie of the Year voting. He also played for the Boston Red Sox in 2009, Rocco Baldelli but retired in 2010 with the Rays due to health issues. He’s currently working for the Rays as special assistant in the team’s baseball operations. KEITH CARNEY A two-time Providence Journal All-Stater and Pawtucket native, Carney was one of the top hockey stars to come out of the iconic Mt. St. Charles program. A tough defenseman, Carney led the Mounties to state titles in the 1986-87 and ’87-’88 seasons. Carney was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in the 1988 National Hockey League (NHL) draft and played on six NHL teams. While at the University of Maine, Carney made the AllHockey East first team in 1990-91. He retired in 2008 after 17 years of pro hockey. LAWRENCE “LARRY’’ CASWELL (Posthumous) Caswell was a Providence Journal All-State quarterback while at Tolman High in Pawtucket (Class of ‘65), and also started for the Tigers’ basketball team that won the state title that year.

Cranston Stadium will host Div. II Super Bowl
Defending champion Cumberland takes on West Warwick in Dec. 8 showdown

he mystery surrounding where the Division II Super Bowl will take place is no more. Monday saw the Rhode Island Interscholastic League confirm the bowl sites and times for all four divisions. To date, the only division with a confirmed matchup is Division II, with defending champion Cumberland squaring off against West Warwick. The Clippers and Wizards will meet Sunday, Dec. 8 at Cranston Stadium. The kickoff is 3 p.m. and will be preceded by the Division I contest, which gets under way at high noon. There were whispers that Tucker Field was mentioned as a possibility to serve as a Super Bowl site. Initially, the reasons appeared sound. The athletic complex recently unveiled a state-of-the-art turf surface that has been warmly received by the community. In addition, there was talk about the league attempting to make the bowl games more geographically friendly – last year saw Cumberland play

Woonsocket for the Division II crown at East Greenwich’s Carcieri Field. Yet once it was confirmed that the Clippers would face the Wizards, the vision of Tucker Field hosting the big game undoubtedly quickly faded. If anything, Cranston Stadium represents an equidistant point between Cumberland and West Warwick, thus nixing the idea that one team has more of a territorial advantage over the other. “Cranston Stadium is a nice venue,” stated Cumberland Athletic Director Frank Geiselman when reached Monday. Both the Division III and IV Super Bowls will take place at Carcieri Field. The Division III game is first up at 12 p.m. followed by the Division IV contest at 3. The Division I and II Super Bowls will be streamed live and tape-delayed by Cox Sports, while the Division III and IV Super Bowls will be streamed live on the RIIL Network. Geiselman noted that Super Bowl tickets will not be sold at the high school. They can, however, be purchased by visiting riil.org. The cost is $8 for adults and $5 for students.

hometown discount, either. ESPN reported the deal is worth $48.5 million, keeping Kobe among the NBA's highest-paid players. Some fans grumbled online that the contract will limit the Lakers' flexibility in the free-agent market next summer, clouding their starry-eyed dreams of signing Carmelo Anthony or LeBron James. Other fans approved the payout as a reward for an iconic player who still ranked among the NBA's most dangerous scorers before his injury. Bryant and 39-year-old point guard Steve Nash are the only players signed to significant contracts for next season with the Lakers, who have been anticipating a major roster restructuring in 2014 ever since Dwight Howard fled town in July. Even if the Lakers waived the oft-injured Nash under a special provision limiting his salary cap hit, Bryant would eat up roughly a third of their room under the projected cap before anybody else joins him next season. Bryant returned to practice earlier this month, and his return to the court seems imminent, although he isn't rushing back from perhaps the most significant injury of his career. Bryant said last week that he could adjust his game and contribute something to the Lakers right now, but he wants to make a full return when he finally steps on the court for his 18th NBA season. "It's definitely something where you're kind of champing at the bit a little bit, but we've come so far," Bryant said after practice last week. "I want to make sure, we all do, when you step out there you're ready to go the long haul, and (the injury) isn't something that continues on."

NBA
Show him the money: Lakers ink Bryant to 2-year, $48.5M extension
Coach Mike D'Antoni has said Bryant can return whenever Kobe says he's ready. The Lakers are surviving in his absence, improving to 7-7 on Sunday night by beating Sacramento for their third straight victory. "I've been extremely proud of the way we've competed," Bryant said. The contract is another milestone in Bryant's remarkable career. He was a 17-year-old high schooler when the Lakers acquired him after the Charlotte Hornets chose him in the first round of the 1996 draft, and Lakers fans watched as he evolved into one of the most dominant scorers in NBA history, dazzling fans with his offensive inventiveness and drawing critics for his ball-dominating style of play. Bryant won three championships with Shaquille O'Neal from 2000-02 and added two more with Pau Gasol in 2009 and 2010, winning the NBA finals MVP award after each of those titles. He won his only NBA MVP award in 2008 and his scoring titles in 2006 and 2007, also earning 15 selections to the All-Star game — with four MVP awards from the showcase — and two Olympic gold medals with the U.S. national team. Bryant hasn't given up hope of adding a sixth championship ring to his trophy case, even while the Lakers struggle to keep up with the NBA's best teams. With his immediate future secure, Bryant can focus on getting back to full strength on his injured leg. "It's always a much greater appreciation for it," Bryant said of his imminent return. "You understand the mortality that comes with being on that doorstep. There's always a sense of enjoyment when you come back."
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Lakers signed Kobe Bryant to a two-year contract extension Monday, securing the fourth-leading scorer in NBA history into his 20th season with the franchise. Bryant hasn't played this season while recovering from surgery on his torn Achilles tendon in April, but the Lakers didn't wait to renew their commitment to the five-time NBA champion before he got anywhere close to the free-agent market next summer. Bryant inked the deal with owner Jim Buss and general manager Mitch Kupchak at his side in agent Rob Pelinka's office moments before the Lakers left for an East Coast road trip. Bryant, Buss and Kupchak all had repeatedly stated Bryant wouldn't leave his only NBA home. "This is a very happy day for Lakers fans and for the Lakers organization," Kupchak said in a statement. "We've said all along that our priority and hope was to have Kobe finish his career as a Laker, and this should ensure that that happens." Bryant has spent more than half of his life playing for the Lakers, and if he fulfills his new contract, he will break John Stockton's record of 19 seasons with one NBA franchise. But Kobe's legacy in L.A. already is secure: No less than Magic Johnson and Jerry West have declared Bryant the franchise's greatest player, given his fistful of championship rings and his consistent brilliance while scoring more points than anybody in a Lakers uniform. Although Bryant is taking a pay cut from his $30.45 million salary this season, Kobe and the Lakers didn't exactly agree to a

Crawford, Wallace lead way as Celtics soar past Bobcats
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Jordan Crawford had 21 points, reserve Gerald Wallace added a season-high 17 points and the Boston Celtics beat the Charlotte Bobcats 9686 on Monday night for their second straight victory. Crawford was 5 of 11 from the field and had five assists as the Celtics avenged an 89-83 loss to the Bobcats on Nov. 13. The 31-year-old Wallace, who played for the Bobcats from 2004-11, was 6 of 10 from the field. Brandon Bass scored 16 points and Phil Pressley had a career-high eight assists for Boston (6-10). The Celtics led by two entering the fourth quarter but scored the first 10 points to take control and were never challenged down the stretch. Kemba Walker had 28 points to lead the Bobcats (7-8), who failed to get above the .500 mark after 15 games for the first time in franchise history. Gerald Henderson added 20 points. Boston's bench outscored Charlotte's 39-15. Charlotte cut Boston's lead to 68-66 entering the fourth quarter, but the Celtics got a 3-pointer from Courtney Lee and a layup by Kris Humphries off a pick and roll to regain control. The Bobcats would trim the lead to six with 1:25 remaining in the game before the Celtics got an offensive rebound off a missed shot and Crawford hit a pair of free throws to make it a three-possession game with 34 seconds remaining. The Celtics came in looking to avenge a loss two weeks ago to the Bobcats that started their six-game losing streak. Boston started slow, falling behind 20-10 but took a 47-38 lead into halftime after outscoring the Bobcats 33-17 in the second quarter. The Celtics came alive behind the outside shooting of Crawford, who knocked down three 3-pointers and led all scorers at the break with 12 points. The Celtics held the Bobcats to just 31 percent shooting from the floor in the second quarter and held a 21-7 edge in points off the bench. Charlotte entered the game with the NBA's third best defense, allowing just 83.6 points on 38.4 percent shooting. Strangely enough, the Bobcats have struggled more at home, surrendering 98 points per game on 47.6 percent while losing five of six at home. The Celtics had lost six straight games before winning Saturday night at Atlanta.
Senior wide receiver Matt Lachance hopes to have the hot hand on Thursday morning when he and his North Smithfield teammates battle Scituate at the Spartans’ Caito Field. The winner will be the No. 3 seed in the Division IV playoffs that begin next Tuesday.

46-14 verdict to Plainfield, but that's not what bothered Nick; he didn't know if he would be able to return to the squad, but – more importantly – he worried about how his brother, senior starting quarterback Mike, would take the news. “It was really weird; we grew up playing Pop Warner football together, and throwing it around in our yard, (and) even when we were playing Madden (video games),” the elder Cicerone explained after the same training session. “It was strange not having him out there with me, with us, because he's my safety net. “I knew I could go to him to bail me out on a screen or a run; he'd do anything to get us out of a rut,” he added. “I've thought about this for a while, and as a result of Nick's absence, I felt like I had to step up my game because he wasn't in there. I knew I had to play at the same level he would. He's pretty intense.” Like most brothers, they argue; really, who doesn't? But it was obvious Mike really has missed the presence of his sibling, also a standout strong/free safety. “He can drive me crazy when I'm driving my Ford Taurus, which my grandfather gave to me,” Mike grinned. “A big thing we fight about is the radio; he's always pressing the buttons. He has to have a song on, regardless of the length of the drive. “We have like an eightminute drive from here (the N.S. stadium) to our house, and he just needs a song, any song. It drives me crazy; it ticks me off because I'm trying to pay attention to the road. But when it comes to football, I want him out there with me, with us all.” Nick certainly will not suit up for North Smithfield's Thanksgiving Day game at Scituate (slated for 10 a.m.), but he hopes to return to the gridiron when the Northmen face either Exeter/West Greenwich or North Providence in a Division IV semifinal the following Tuesday night. “Will I be back? I don't know, but I really want to,” he stated. Standing my his side, Mike immediately said, “Barring Mom. I think she's concerned about Nicky getting hurt again. I also think she's worried about (this upcoming) basketball season. (Last winter, the N.S. hoopsters, including the Cicerones as backups, captured the Division III state title with a perfect record, but eventually lost to Classical in the Rhode Island Open Tournament championship game). “He has the chance to earn a starting job,” he added. Offered Nick: “I want to come back. If I can play (football), I'm going to.” *** That tough-as-nails approach has helped the Northmen not only post a 4-2 league record (4-4 overall) but qualify for the postseason for the second straight season. Nick's contributions haven't gone unnoticed: Five rushing
touchdowns, approximately 400 ground yards and one score through the air, that in a pivotal contest against Exeter/West Greenwich (an eventual 17-14 defeat) back on Sept. 28. Defensively, he's intercepted two passes, and also plays a key role in the tackling department. As for Mike, who doesn't play both ways, he's thrown for over 900 yards and eight paydirts while running for another. “This is tough for me; I want to be out there banging heads, but the injury is preventing that,” Nick claimed. “When I got to the hospital, this lady (nurse) was X-raying my arm, and she kept turning it and bending it. It hurt like heck. “I later was told I broke some bone in the elbow, a little one, and I spent four days in a cast and two weeks in a sling,” he added. “I can straighten it out somewhat, but not like I want to. I'm dying, missing these games (the remainder of the Plainfield contest and two wins over Smithfield, 36-14, and Central Falls, 61-8). “These are a couple of the last games I'll ever get to play with Mike, plus (next Tuesday) is the first playoff game. It's bad enough I can't play on Thanksgiving, but I can't miss the semifinal.” If there's any good news, it's the fact N.S. will carry a twogame win streak into that holiday clash against Scituate, which must reign if it wants to earn a playoff berth. Still, his teammates miss Nick, as does head coach Wes Pennington. “We have plenty of running backs, but no one with his experience or ability to get open the way he does,” offered senior receiver/defensive end Peter Keenan, a key cog in the Northmen basketball team's tremendous 2012-13 campaign. “He finds holes and breaks tackles with the best of 'em. “The thing is, he helps me out a lot,” he continued. “When we face another team, usually they double-team me, and that leaves Nicky open in the flat or
“We have kids on this team who played on the state Division III championship basketball team (last spring), so they've been in the limelight before,” he stated of the brothers Cicerone, senior Mike and junior Nick; and seniors Peter Keenan and Matt Lachance, to name only four. “They won't be scared of the hype surrounding a big game because they've been there. They have that mentality. “I know Matt (Lachance) approached me before the season started and told me he won three state titles last year (in tennis, hoop and wherever. It changes the volleyball); he said he wants to help the football defense when he's on the field.” team get there, too,” he added. “With an attitude Noted Pennington: “It's been like that, it's only going to help us.” a challenge because we have Pennington still knows his squad will have its one less talented guy out there. collective hands full trying to stop Scituate and If there's one good thing: When its top guns, including junior signal callers Jack he got hurt, I had a really nice Owens and Mike Winfield; running backs rotation behind him with (senior Brandon Cucino and Miles Maxwell; and junior tailback) Dylan Narodowy and tight end Wyatt Laprade.

Friday, Nov. 15, but will carry that confidence into the contest. “If we want to win this one, we've got to execute and keep mistakes at a minimum,” Pennington stated. “When things go well for us, we move the ball and hold on to it; we eat the clock, so we're going to need at least two or three eight- or nine-play drives to stay in rhythm.” Senior quarterback Mike Cicerone will direct the offense, and his favorite targets include Peter Keenan; junior tight end Mark Keenan; and senior back Dylan Narodowy, in his first year on the gridiron. He could also throw to fellow back Devon Deragon, a junior, or classmate Ross Topik. “Dylan was really green when he first came out (9in August), but he know understands the concepts and what we're trying to do in the running game,” Pennington said. Both Deragon and Topik complement the ground attack with Narodowy; they've seen a dramatic increase in touches since junior Nick Cicerone, the signal caller's kid brother, suffered a dislocated elbow in a non-league loss to Plainfield, Conn. “Defensively, (the Spartans) are pretty good, so we're going to have to take what they give us, and be smart enough at the line to know it,” Pennington indicated. “This is our biggest game of the season. Last year, we were the third seed but went into Central Falls and lost; we wound up the fourth, and ended up playing (thenDivision IV powerhouse) Mount Pleasant at their place. We got shelled. “I've told the kids that this is the most important one of the season, and that we need to take care of business,” he continued. “This is a great game for us because we're going on the road, just like we will for the (semifinal) and, hopefully, the Super Bowl. They have to realize that this IS a playoff game. “I want the kids to be aggressive, use their heads and play smart. This is a great chance to see a team that's fired up to beat us … They had our number for the first couple of years I was here (in 2007-08), but we've won the last three (straight). If we do win, then it will be time to prepare for EWG, where we lost three years ago in double-overtime.” Pennington's crew dropped a 17-14 heartbreaker to the host Avengers back on Sept. 28, and would like nothing more than to return the favor, but first thing's first: They must reign on the holiday. “We're hoping that, if we somehow get past Thursday (with a victory), we won't let the same thing occur (on Tuesday),” he said.

Bruins defeat Penguins in OT
BOSTON (AP) — Torey Krug scored 34 seconds into overtime and the Boston Bruins beat Pittsburgh 4-3 on Monday night, snapping a seven-game, regular-season losing streak to the Penguins in a matchup of the Eastern Conference's top two teams. Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby had scored with 0.3 seconds left in regulation to tie it. Krug won it with a shot from the left circle. Loui Eriksson and Reilly Smith scored first-period goals, and Zdeno Chara made it 3-2 with 5:15 left in regulation for the conference-leading Bruins, who are 8-2-1 in their last 11 games. Tuukka Rask made 28 saves for Boston, which beat the Penguins for the first time since December 2011. Pittsburgh salvaged a point after goalie MarcAndre Fleury for an extra skater. Chris Kunitz fired a desperation backhander on net, and Crosby — at the edge of the crease — deflected the puck across the goal line behind Rask just as the green light went on. James Neal scored the first two goals for Pittsburgh, and Fleury made 20 saves. The Penguins, playing their third game in five days, lost for the sixth time in 10 games. It was the first meeting in Boston since the Bruins completed a sweep of the Penguins in last season's conference finals. Neal lifted the Penguins into a 2-2 tie with a rising wrist shot from the left circle that beat Rask under the crossbar with 8:51 left in the third. Despite being outshot 10-1 in the opening nine minutes of the game, Boston held a 2-0 lead after the first period. Both goals were set up by Carl Soderberg. Eriksson's goal was a highlight play by the winger. He took a pass from Soderberg that was a little behind him near the Penguins blue line. He pushed the puck between his legs to his forehand, broke in alone, and tucked a backhander between Fleury's pads.

Patriots practice patience in comeback victory over Broncos
keep going. That should be the motto for everyone," defensive end Chandler Jones said Monday. "For any team and not just for our team, any team that saw us play the other night. I'm pretty sure that there are other players that watched that game and it just goes to show — don't stop, just keep going." It helps, of course, to have Tom Brady and his skill at fourth-quarter comebacks. In the Patriots' previous game, he got the ball at his 20-yard line with 59 seconds left and Carolina leading 2420. He drove them to the Panthers 18, but his pass on the last play was intercepted in the end zone about 5 yards in front of where Gronkowski was being bear-hugged by linebacker Luke Kuechly. A penalty flag was thrown for defensive pass interference, then waved off when the referee ruled the ball uncatchable. The Patriots had a successful comeback four games earlier when they handed the New Orleans Saints one of their two losses. Brady led a 70-yard drive in just 1:08 to the winning touchdown with 5 seconds left in a 30-27 win. And last December, the Patriots trailed the San Francisco 49ers 31-3 midway through the third quarter, then scored four touchdowns in the next 15 minutes to tie it before losing 41-34. "One thing we've shown is that, mentally, we have some toughness. We've been in some bad situations," Belichick said. "We've been able to hang in there even when it hasn't always looked great. But, really, I would say that the season for us is kind of starting now. "The teams that play well in November, December and January," he said, "those are the teams that are standing in the end." Starting in 2010, the Patriots are 25-4 in those months during the regular season. They have a good chance to make that 30-4 with games remaining against Houston, Cleveland, Miami, Baltimore and Buffalo — all with losing records. But if those games are close, count on the Patriots to fight until the final play. That's when their last two games were decided. "These games, they come down to the end almost every week now," defensive end Rob Ninkovich said. "You never know what's going to happen, so it's that whole bend but don't break mentality of keep fighting, keep after your opponent to pull these wins out. It's a great way to win." Even if some unorthodox decisions are made. The Patriots won the overtime coin toss and decided to kick off and force the Broncos to go into the wind — even if it meant giving Manning and his potent offense the ball. "The whole situation was a little bit confusing," Belichick said, "because when I told the captains that, there was a little bit of a question of, 'Are you talking about deferring?' I was like, 'No, we're not deferring. We're taking the wind, period.' " Denver reached the New England 37-yard line on its second overtime series but punted rather than try a long field goal into the wind. The Patriots then punted from their 43. The ball bounced and hit Tony Carter of the Broncos. Nate Ebner pounced on it for New England at the Denver 13 and Stephen Gostkowski kicked the winning 31-yard field goal with 1:56 left in overtime. "Luckily," Gostkowski said, "we had the wind behind our back on that last kick." They shouldn't need any extra help next Sunday when they visit the Texans, losers of nine straight after winning their first two. "You have to ride the momentum here of a great victory that we had last night and just continue to finish through here," Ninkovich said. "We're going to prepare like we always do and be ready to play the Texans tough."
FOXBORO, Mass. (AP) — The Patriots trailed 24-0. They had to pretend it was 0-0. It worked. Drive after successful drive, New England chipped away at that halftime deficit, stopped the NFL's best offense and stunned the Denver Broncos 34-31 in overtime on Sunday night. Coach Bill Belichick's message to his still-determined players at intermission? "Just to take it as a new ballgame," tight end Rob Gronkowski said. "Don't think there is going to be a miracle where you can score a touchdown and it counts as more. So just take it one drive at a time." The Patriots had fumbled the ball on their first three possessions of the game. But they scored on their first five of the second half for a 31-24 lead. That surge stemmed from a simple philosophy. "No matter what the score is, just

Meeting ‘good guy’ online requires serious search
DEAR ABBY:
May I address a question you printed on July 24? “Where Are the Good Guys?” has trouble meeting men and wrote about seeking sexual partners on Craigslist. You answered that there were no good men there. Well, I met my boyfriend of two years through a “no strings attached” ad I posted on Craigslist. It turns out we had a strong attraction and chemistry, and he’s one of my best friends. So what if we were adults who wanted a casual relationship to start with? Don’t judge everyone that way. The reason that woman is having problems is she’s using the site to find sex partners when she really wants more. She needs to look in the “relationship” section or on a relationship site. Don’t blame men for wanting to have sex when that’s what she’s advertising. They aren’t all “bad.” They are actually more truthful than she is. — HAPPILY COUPLED IN OMAHA DEAR HAPPILY COUPLED: I heard from many readers who described successful relationships that started online. I did not mean to imply that there are no good men on Craigslist. My concern was the writer was looking for a meaningful, lasting relationship in a category where people look for casual sex. Others identified ago and met a wonderful woman on the site. We are married now and expecting our first baby. — HAPPY HUSBAND IN MIAMI she won’t have to worry about her health status hanging over her head. — HAVE REALLY BEEN THERE IN DENVER
DEAR ABBY: DEAR ABBY:
“Where Are the Good Guys?” says she’s “not beautiful by any means,” and that means meeting good guys won’t happen. That is SO not the case! I was a homecoming queen and have always been attractive, but many of the men I dated married plainer women because they were looking for wife-and-mother types and not a high-maintenance beauty queen. You don’t meet the “right” men because of your looks; you meet them in the right PLACES where you have common interests — church, volunteer work and all the other places that Dear Abby keeps telling folks about! — RUTH IN VIRGINIA I’m a “good guy,” and there are many other guys like me. If she would put in the time and effort to talk to one of us, get to know us, she will find what she’s looking for. I am so sick of women saying they want a nice guy and then running in the opposite direction. Her words say one thing, but her actions say something else. — OUT HERE WAITING IN CLEVELAND Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

DEAR ABBY:
I’m a female, 59, and like the woman in that letter, also not considered beautiful. But I do have two very good men friends in my life, and I met them both online. There ARE men of quality out there. You just have to be careful and read between the lines. Abby, online personals are the new “bar scene.” — DONNA IN MISSOURI
DEAR ABBY:
When I was younger, I had problems with low self-esteem and also engaged in a series of meaningless relationships. From past experience, I strongly encourage this lady to have herself checked for STDs if she had unprotected sex with any of these men. Making sure you protect your health is a major step in learning to love and care for yourself. Also, when Mr. Right does come along,

Horoscope
By HOLIDAY MATHIS ARIES (March 21-April 19). Love comes in many forms over the course of the next 24 hours. Sometimes it will be tender and curious; other times it’s boisterous and bossy. You’ll appreciate the many variations. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Success will depend on clear communication. It’s better to ask questions than to make assumptions. If you’re not clicking with someone, don’t force it. Talk to more people until you find someone you do click with. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will combine your learned experience with dedicated research to create something new. You’ll have to repeat this process several times before you get the desired result. With each iteration, you’ll be closer. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Take control of your social life. You don’t need more friends; you need better relationships. Put your feelers out there. Where does the connection seem strongest? Instead of wider, you need to go deeper. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You see potential in others that may or may not be there, but there’s no harm in believing the best. You have a nurturing spirit and want nothing more than for the people around you to thrive and grow to their capabilities. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s the perfect time to get nosy and figure out how others are running their lives. There are more and less appealing ways to go about things, but the proof of a strategy is always in the results. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Passionate people get things done — and undone. They can be unpredictable about it. Today’s responsibility is best given to an even person who can be counted on to deliver steady results. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You want to give each person the deserved amount, but since that’s a judgment call that is bound to make you unpopular, it’s better to allot each person the same amount, deserved or not. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). You don’t have to be the one to save the world today. Leave it for someone who has more energy to burn. You’re in too mellow of a mood. Savor the world instead. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The natural way of language is to develop. You get a thrill from hearing new words or the same words used differently. That’s why you enjoy talking to people who come from a different time and/or place. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Even if you don’t believe in the rules or think they don’t apply to you, you’ll follow them for the sake of playing along. Since there will be consequences for breaking the rules, it’s a wise choice for now. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You won’t think a lot about your own self-worth until something happens as a direct result of how you’ve valued yourself. Remember, it’s just an opinion, and you can always change it.
