The C.A. six tips of the day for Sept. 27

By Bonnie Adams, Government Editor

Region – Today is Thursday, Sept. 27, the 271st day of 2012.

On this day in 1854, 322 people were killed when two ships, the “Artic” and the “Vespa,” collided off the coast of Newfoundland. The accident was blamed on sudden dense fog.

On this day in 1959, 5000 people were killed after “Super Typhoon Vera” hit the main Japanese island of Honshū.

And on this day in 1821, Mexico gained its independence from Spain.

Three musicians are celebrating their birthdays today – Lil Wayne (1982); Meat Loaf (1947) and Avril Lavigne (1984).

Here are six tips for the day -

1. A beloved Shrewsbury librarian, Linda Dashnaw, is retiring as the Head of Children's Services at the Shrewsbury Public Library next month. The public is invited to a reception to be held in her honor, tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 28.
