By Bonnie Adams, Government Editor

Region – Today is Tuesday,? Sept. 25, the 269th? day of 2012.

It's been a sad, frustrating year for Red Sox fans but on this day in 1911, there was rejoicing as ground was broken for Fenway Park.

On this day in 1981, Sandra Day O’Connor became the first female to become an U.S. Supreme Court justice.

And on this day in 1789, the U.S. Congress passed twelve amendments to the United States Constitution, including the ten that represent the Bill of Rights.

Happy birthday to – actor Will Smith (1968), actress Catherine Zeta-Jones 91969) and her husband, actor Michael Douglas (1944).

Here are six tips for the day -

1. Tony Funches, the former lead vocalist for the Platters, will be performing at the Southborough Senior Center tomorrow, Wednesday, Sept. 26.
