The C.A. six tips of the day for Nov. 20

By Bonnie Adams, Government Editor

Region – Today is Tuesday, Nov. 20, the 325th day of 2012.

On this day in 1968, 78 men were killed when methane gas caused explosions in a West Virginia coal mine. The damage was so severe that the mine had to be sealed with the bodies of the men still inside it.

On this day in 1992, a fire broke out at Windsor Castle in England, causing over $79 million dollars in damage.

And on this day in 2003, music producer Phil Spector was indicted in the murder of actress Lana Clarkson.

Born on this day:  the late Robert F. Kennedy (1925); Joe Biden (1942) and Bo Derek (1956).

Here are six tips for the day:

1. The Westborough Police and Fire Departments are holding a drive this week to collect items for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
