For much of the winter, a number of players who will soon take to the turf at Monomoy High have been making almost weekly trips to Plymouth to compete against opponents...

HARWICH ─ The New England Patriots’ historic win of Super Bowl LI happened more than a week ago, but for Eric Adler it feels like it was yesterday. It helps that he’s been perusing more than 20,000 images captured during the big game and subsequent celebratory parade, and this die-hard fan, who now works for his favorite team, wouldn’t have it any other way. To some degree, Adler’s tale is your classic small...

By: Kat Szmit

As I write this, it's Tuesday somewhere around noon. On my laptop screen is the live stream of the New England Patriots celebratory duck boat parade. While it's cool to see the players enjoying their moment, I'm actually on the lookout for my predecessor, Eric Adler, who is traversing the route alongside Tom Brady himself. I couldn't be happier for both of us. As many of this paper's faithful readers know, Eri...

HARWICH/CHATHAM ─ Monomoy senior boys basketball captain Chris Mazulis has a message for his haters: Look at me now. And they ought to, since they might learn a little about not just how to play hoops, but also how to overcome obstacles in order to achieve one's goals, something Mazulis knows just a bit about. At the age of four, when it was noticed that Mazulis was having some learning difficulties and a nu...
