SCITUATE â€“ Clad in a gray suit, a detective sits in a spartan work cubicle, his face illuminated by an eerie glow as he stares at the wide screen of a desktop computer, a serious expression on his face.
If a pin dropped, you could probably hear it in this austere corner of state police headquarters on a lonely stretch of Route 6.
This is where the state police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force mines its quarry, a special breed of sex offenders who swap images of child pornography on the Internet like some people trade baseball cards.
Sadly, business is unusually brisk.
WARWICK – Bishop Hendricken jumped out to an early lead on Mount St. Charles and didn’t look back en route to a 5-3 win at Thayer Arena Friday night.

WOONSOCKET â€“ Many years have passed since Pepin Lumber last sold Christmas trees during the holidays.

No, itâ€™s not your usual seasonal capitalism. In fact, itâ€™s not capitalism at all, but a charitable rescue mission.
WOONSOCKET – Mount St. Charles coach Dave Belisle doesn’t want to sound the alarm, but also won’t deny the importance of Friday’s matchup with longtime rival Bishop Hendricken at Warwick’s Thayer Arena.
“They’re all big games, but December games are just as important,” said Belisle.
Keeping pace in head-to-head matchups will be essential for the Mounties to make noise in the Championship Division race. To date, Mount and Hendricken have each lost to currently unbeaten La Salle Academy.
