Five Things You Need to Know Today: January 25
The Governor has declared today "No Name Calling Day."
- National Weather Service's Brookline forecast tells us that we'll have a cloudy day, with the clouds starting to recede later in the evening. High of 40ºF, and a low of 25ºF.
- The Governor is encouraging students, although parents can certainly do the same, to wear black to "Black out bullying" for "No Name Calling Day." As part of Gov. Patrick's 2010 anti-bullying legislation, Jan. 25 should be a day without bullying.
- The Planning Board is meeting to discuss signs and facades around town. They'll be talking about signage at the following spots: Hebrew Senior Life Medical Group building, Brookline Bank, Terra Vino (formerly Kashmir Foods), Brookline Tailoring Plus, Barcelona (formerly The Roadhouse), and Remax. If you're affected and want to comment on them, 8:15 a.m. at Brookline Town Hall is the place to be.
- Uncap a cola (glass bottle), and keep the cap for a bracelet, necklace, or something fancy. Head over to Abeille's $40 Bottle Cap Jewelry Class, which starts at 6:30 p.m. tonight.
- Author David Scheffer was at the forefront of attempts to try war crimes for atrocities over the course of his lifetime, and he was there during the creation of the International Criminal Court. In "All the Missing Souls: A Personal History of the War Crimes Tribunals," he talks more about what happened. In an event co-sponsored by Amnesty International, he'll be at Brookline Booksmith at 7 p.m. tonight.
