Globe West's reporters and correspondents cover the region from Newton Corner to the Worcester line, and have come up with a wide variety of interesting stories for today's section, including:

Correspondent Tanya Pérez-Brennan's report about how fears of arrest and immigration enforcement are scaring away customers and hurting Brazilian businesses in once-vibrant downtown Framingham, where several empty storefronts now abound;

Arts correspondent Denise Taylor's story about how an unusual theater piece created in Wayland -- a hip-hop musical version of William Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" -- has made it all the way to a high school in Johannesburg, South Africa;

Staff writer Meg Woolhouse's story about a new pie bakery in Newton Centre, and;

Correspondent Matt Gunderson's piece about how momentum is building to refurbish a 3.2-mile stretch of former railroad bed in Stow that would help complete a "missing link" along the Assabet River Rail Trail, a 12.5-mile scenic path from Marlborough to Acton.
