Carlton once again magnificant on the mound for the Northmen

April 14, 2014

SCITUATE --- One third of its way through its Division II-North schedule, North Smithfield is looking like not only the team to beat in the North, but also one of the elite squads in the entire division.

The Northmen continued their spectacular start on Monday afternoon by winning for the fifth time in as many games, defeating Scituate by a 5-1 score at Manning Field behind an 11-hit attack and another masterful outing by ace pitcher Karissa Carlton.

Burrillville field hockey mentor thrilled with national coaching laurel

April 14, 2014

BURRILLVILLE – Not long after Susan Burgess turned 17, back in the spring of 1978, someone asked her to coach an Uxbridge “Lassie Softball League” team of 12- and 13-year-olds.

She really didn't know what to expect, but – as an athlete – she knew all about a variety of sports and what the girls needed to learn, so she acquiesced.

Still, she was only 17 so enlisted some help.

Through sweat equity, families aid each other in building new homes

April 13, 2014

BURRILLVILLE — Given that they have little or no experience in carpentry or the construction trades, the members of six families from the Greater Woonsocket area are going to be spending a good part of the summer doing something very strange.

They’re going to help build each other’s houses on a parcel of land not far from Pascoag Reservoir.

Lima becomes next head football coach at Cumberland

April 13, 2014

CUMBERLAND – The keys to the Clippers’ football program have been handed to a 27-year-old first-time varsity head coach.

The lack of experience when it comes to leading young men, or his age, should not yield shrugs of disbelief. There’s plenty of pigskin knowledge tucked inside the mind of Josh Lima, the choice to replace departed Cumberland mentor Chris Skurka, who in January accepted a coaching position that specifically entails overseeing the linebackers and special teams at Dean College.

Dubois finishing work on Autumnfest movie; will premiere Aug. 28

April 12, 2014

WOONSOCKET – Taking on a filmmaking project is one thing, and getting the project to completion in many ways something else altogether. There is the process of reviewing the footage shot, putting it into the context of the storyline, and then going through the final edit while keeping the film in line with the goal for its creation.

Local filmmaker Derek Dubois has been going through all of that as he finishes up work on his “City on the Move,” a film about Woonsocket’s premiere annual fall celebration, Autumnfest, and its relationship to the city’s ongoing economic and fiscal troubles.

Northmen battle back to beat Broncos, 7-4

April 11, 2014

BURRILLVILLE – North Smithfield High seemed rather disinterested in the early going of a Division II-North clash with host Burrillville on Friday afternoon.

After all, head coach Jon Leddy’s unbeaten crew was facing a club that hadn’t won a league contest in three tries this spring. In their collective mind, why would this be any different?

The Broncos, however, assembled a four-run surge with three doubles in a four at-bat span in the back half of the third inning to gain the advantage, though the Northmen responded with four in the top of the fourth to knot it.
