Five Things You Need to Know Today: March 13
Learn how to use BATV's equipment, follow a priest's search for the truth, and give your thoughts on the use of Brookline parks and playgrounds.
1. A 20 to 30 percent chance of rain showers throughout the day mostly before 9 p.m., says the National Weather Service. Predicting, all told, less than a tenth of an inch. Highs of 65ºF and lows of 47ºF are predicted throughout the day.
2. If you want to know all there is to know about Brookline Access Television--or, at least enough to be dangerous, then Brookline Access T.V. Orientation. 2 p.m. at the Brookline High School is when it starts. Once you've completed this free class, you can pick up a BATV ID, and start learning new things from them.
3. A two-part film series starts tonight, the J Street Boston film series. The film is "Hill 24 Doesn't Answer" (Israel, 1955), which begins at 7 p.m. at 1296 Washington St in West Newton. $10 gets you into one film, or $18 for both. The second film, "For My Father" (Israel, 2008), runs on March 20.
4. Author and Father Patrick Desbois, who wrote "Holocaust by Bullets: A Priest’s Journey to Uncover the Truth Behind the Murder of 1.5 Million Jews" delivers a free public lecture tonight. He'll be at 40 Talbot Avenue in Medford at 8 p.m. Father Desbois has devoted his life to confronting anti-Semitism and furthering Catholic-Jewish dialogue and understanding.
5. At the fall special town meeting, Members passed an warrant article to keep the Health Department regulating use of playgrounds. Have some input? Stop by the Open Forum on Brookline Park & Playground Use at Brookline Town Hall tonight, at 7:30 p.m.
[Edit: A previous version of the article indicated that the Parks and Playground Use event begins at 8 p.m., not at 7:30 p.m. This has been corrected. 12:17 p.m.]
