The C.A. six tips of the day for Dec. 3

By Bonnie Adams, Government Editor

Region – Today is Monday, Dec. 3, the 338th day of 2012.

On this day in 1979, 11 people were killed as fan rushed to get general admission seats at a Who concert in Cincinnati.  

On this day in 1947, the play, “A  Streetcar Named Desire,” written by Tennessee Williams, opened on Broadway.

 And on this day in 1967, in a South African hospital, Lewis Washkansky became the first person to receive a human heart transplant. Sadly he only lived 18 days until he died of pneumonia.

Today’s birthdays include Ozzy Osbourne (1948); singer Andy Grammar (1983); and portraitist Gilbert Stuart (1755).

Here are six tips for the day –  

1. The first full-length, high-definition documentary film ever made about legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold and his environmental legacy will be shown at the Northborough Free Library tonight.
