WOONSOCKET â€” A few details of the changes in store for Landmark Medical Center if the sale of the hospital goes through have emerged from the state health department, including a name change thatâ€™s getting some lukewarm reviews from the locals.
Steward Health Care System of Boston would rename the Cass Avenue facility â€śBlackstone Medical Center.â€ť Similarly, the Rehabilitation Hospital of Rhode Island, in North Smithfield, would become â€śBlackstone Rehabilitation Hospital.â€ť
LINCOLN â€” Little did Alexandra Fish know that when she accurately spelled the noun tableau, defined by Webster's Dictionary as â€śa striking, dramatic scene or picture,â€ť she was living one herself.
That correct answer led the Lincoln Middle School eighth grader to the championship of the annual Lincoln School District Spelling Bee, held inside her home auditorium on Tuesday night.
Fish, who out-dueled fellow schoolmate and sixth-grader Alexandra Theroux, now will represent the district at the Rhode Island State Spelling Bee, to be held at this same site on Saturday, March 12 at 10 a.m.
