On Tuesday night, Cumberland High and Mount St. Charles Academy battled each other in a winner-take-all showdown for the ages, a nine-inning duel that saw the Clippers emerge with their program’s first state title.

The lawyer for the union that represents nurses and other health care workers at Woonsocket's Landmark Medical Center keeps his ample collection draped over the door of his office, located in a onetime funeral parlor in this city's gritty North End.

Lincoln Chafee visited Hasbro Children’s Hospital Monday to sign legislation creating special green license plates patterned after Fenway Park’s Green Monster and carrying the Red Sox logo next to the plate number.
