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

The C.A. six tips of the day for March 27Region – It's a tradition almost as popular as the Super Bowl – “March Madness”. The NCAA men's basketball tournament takes on a life of its own every March with avid and once-a-year fans joining in on all the fun and hype. It all started on this day back in 1939 when the University of Oregon defeated Ohio State University 46–33 to capture the first ever NCAA men's basketball title.

Happy birthday today to Patty Smith Hill (1868), who with her sister Mildred wrote the song “Happy Birthday to you,”; actress Gloria Swanson (1899); and singer Mariah Carey (1971).

Here are six tips for the day –

1. Shrewsbury High School will be presenting “Curtains” March 29 through 31. The musical is described as a “compelling yet zany whodunit murder mystery, comedy and love story of song and dance.”
