Cumberland continues to stay the course at Eastern Softball Regionals

July 23, 2013

BRISTOL, Conn. --- After watching his All-Star team nearly mercy-rule the Mount Abraham All-Stars of New Haven, Vt. in an easy victory on Sunday, Cumberland manager Chris Bodington knew that his girls had probably seen their last lopsided win of the Eastern Regional tournament.

On deck was a pool play contest against a team that took Cumberland extra innings a year ago in the tourney, two-time Maine state champ Scarborough, and the next game was against a tougher opponent, the George J. Hummel All-Stars of Seymour, Conn.

Group threatens legal action over tax

July 23, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Just when it seemed like the torturous journey of the 2013 supplemental tax bill was coming to an end, another twist in the road lies ahead for the controversial budget-balancer.
An organized protest group that contends the city is planning to collect the tax in violation of the conditions established by state law now promises it will challenge the $2.5 million supplemental tax in Superior Court.
“If they go forward with this, yes, more than likely we will take legal action,” said James Cournoyer. “What the result of that will be, who knows? Let the chips fall where they may.”
