WOONSOCKET â€“ UnitedHealthcare and Landmark Medical Center have ironed out a new contract that restores 52 physicians with admitting privileges at the hospital to the health insurerâ€™s coverage network, the parties announced.
UnitedHealthcare dropped Landmark from its coverage network after the hospital was purchased last year by the for-profit, California-based hospital chain, Prime Healthcare Services.
The two parties have been trying to firm up a new contract since.
WOONSOCKET â€” Carnell Henderson, 41, has always had a goal of doing something more since he was a student at Woonsocket High School and member of the graduating class of 1991.
Back then, he will tell you today, there wasnâ€™t a concrete plan of what â€śmoreâ€ť would be, but Henderson just knew from the support he had received from his family, his coaches, and his teachers in school he would some day be involved in the leadership of his community.
Special to The Call
SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — The players are having as much fun as the players from 2011 did.
The coaches, though, have changed their message a bit this time.
The Cumberland American Little League is back at the Little League World Series for a second time in four years. And this time it thinks it can stay a little longer.
Those who have closely followed the chronicles of Cumberland American this summer are well aware of Trey Bourque’s offensive prowess. For those late to the game, let’s examine the youngster’s stat line from the New England Little League Regional tournament.
PROVIDENCE â€“ A Superior Court judge Wednesday sentenced former Woonsocket Municipal Court Clerk Rachel Arruda to an 18-month prison term and ordered her to make $60,000 restitution after she entered a plea of no contest to 2011 state police charges of embezzling nearly $400,000 from the struggling city.
Judge Jeffrey Lanphear ordered Arruda to surrender to authorities on Sept. 10 to begin serving her sentence at the Adult Correctional Institutions, Cranston, rejecting lawyer Mark Smithâ€™s plea for home confinement.
As the players and coaches in the Cumberland American are discovering this week, there’s nothing little about the Little League World Series.
On the surface, competing in this grand spectacle – how else would you describe an event that includes participants hailing from around the country and the world? – can seem overwhelming. ESPN cameras are practically everywhere, which CALL manager Dave Belisle hinted at earlier this week upon stating, “All of the eyes of the world are on Williamsport.”
