The Supreme Court, in an appeal by General Motors Corp., ruled 9-0 that the federal government cannot be barred from enforcing an existing state clean air plan because the deadline for reviewing changes in the plan has passed. The case involves the Massachusetts plan approved in 1980 by the Environmental Protection Agency under the Clean Air Act. The U.S. sued GM in 1987 for failing to comply with the clean air plan in Massachusetts. The justices today upheld the EPA's power to seek fines of up to $25,000 a day. The case involves pollution from car paint at a now-closed GM assembly plant in Framingham, Mass.

Aston-Middletown spent most of the last month not just beating opponents, but annihilating them, on the way to a state title and a berth in the Little League Eastern Regionals. Thursday, the 11- and 12-year-old all-star team witnessed how the other half lives as Massachusetts ended Aston-Middletown's season with a 14-8 semifinal win in Bristol, Conn. Throughout Aston-Middletown's 12-game winning streak, whenever the team won a pregame coin toss, the players chose to be the visiting team so they could bat first and, hopefully, put pressure on their opponents by scoring early.

There is no one on the Massachusetts team who scores 20 - or even near 20 - points per game. No one who grabs the attention, the spotlight. No one coach John Calipari can point to and say, "That player made it all happen for us. " He says that about all of them. But when a team crawls from nowhere to claim the league title and a national ranking, it is a certainty that somewhere in the lineup there must be found a league most valuable player, no matter how evenly spread the talent seems to be. That is why, when it came time to select the Atlantic 10's Player of the Year, the writers picked Harper Williams off the UMass team.
