Randall leads youth movement at Stroke Play

August 2, 2012

CRANSTON – On the 71st hole of the 29th RIGA Stroke Play Championship, soon-to-be-47-year old Charlie Blanchard and 19-year old Jamison Randall were tied for the lead.
And with one swing from Blanchard and one from Randall, a changing of the guard took place.
Trying to avoid a playoff, Blanchard sailed a 9-iron over the green from 150 yards out while Randall identified a flyer lie in the rough, hit his approach on the green and when Blanchard couldn’t get up and down, two-putted for a one-stroke win, avenging his loss to Blanchard in the State Amateur last month.

Curmudgeon's Corner: RI taxpayers pay the cost for single-parent families (OPINION)

August 1, 2012

Two weeks ago under the rubric “Reinvent Rhode Island” the lead story in the Sunday edition of the state’s largest daily newspaper dealt with the plight of single mothers. This piece, which featured 36-year-old, mother of two, Crystal M. Tetreault covered most of the front page and two full pages in the first section.
We learn that Miss Tetreault was herself the child of a 17-year old mother who never went to high school. She was raised in foster care, a group home and by an aunt. (Thank you, taxpayers.) Her father was absent until she was an adult.
