03/28/08 - William the Green Garbage Truck


William the Green Garbage Truck

Via Conscious Choice

Talking to children about important issues such as global warming and natural resource protection may seem daunting. Fortunately, William the green garbage truck is here to help. James Martin II and his 4-year-old son, James Martin III, created the William the Garbage Truck & Crew series to teach children ages 3 to 8 to be aware of their environment and to help take care of it.

Martin realized his own need for environmental awareness after being fined for cutting down trees on his property in Greenwich, Conn.

“I was shocked to realize that the generations before me did not teach about these important environmental issues,” says Martin. “What you learn as a child is important, and I want to teach others what I didn’t know.”

With three children in his household, Martin was more than familiar with characters like Barney and Elmo. He knew friendly faces like these were key to starting a dialogue with children. To develop such a character, Martin looked to James, who has an obsession with garbage trucks. And so, William the garbage truck was born.

When working with the book’s illustrator, Don Berry, Martin consulted his son for creative guidance. The younger Martin pointed out details that may not have been noticed by more mature audiences. “It was important to get a child involved,” says Martin. “They are the audience to teach, so the look had to be warm and welcoming to them.”

William is Going Green is the first book in the William the Garbage Truck & Crew series. The first book introduces youngsters to William, an ordinary gas-guzzling garbage truck who trades in his old engine for a friendlier hybrid. William also learns about making new friends and simple steps to “go green.”

Throughout the series, William and his friends will take on various adventures throughout their fictional town of Jamestown and work to save the planet from global warming, “greening the world one truck at a time.” Each book teaches kids to take care of their environment and focuses on an important life lesson. “The most important thing is to make these issues entertaining and fun for kids,” says Martin.

Each 860-word, hard-covered picture book is printed with eco-friendly materials that are 100 percent recyclable. Order a copy online at williamthegarbagetruck.com.

03/28/08 - Another Unfolding Millionaire Murder Mystery In Greenwich


Mystery Bestsellers for March 28, 2008

There are twists aplenty in the 2nd thriller by

The Dark Tide

An explosion rips through New York City's Grand Central Station one morning, destroying the train Karen Friedman's husband, a successful hedge fund manager, is riding in to work. Days later, with many bodies still unidentifiable, Karen resigns herself to the awful truth: her husband of eighteen years is dead. On that same day, a suspicious hit-and-run accident leaves a young man dead in Karen's hometown of Greenwich, Connecticut. Ty Hauck, a detective, becomes emotionally caught up in the case and finds a clue that shockingly connects the two seemingly unrelated events. Months later, two men show up at Karen's home digging into Charles's business dealings. Hundreds of millions of dollars are missing and the trail points squarely to Charles. With doubt suddenly cast on everything she has ever known, Karen, with Hauck, steps into a widening storm of hedge fund losses, international scams, and murder. And as the investigations converge, these two strangers touched by tragedy are pulled into a deepening relationship and unwittingly open the door to a twisted - and deadly - conspiracy.

Editorial Review

From Publishers Weekly

Gross, who's partnered with James Patterson on a number of bestsellers (Lifeguard, etc.), mixes murder, suspense, sex and romance as capably as his mentor in his assured second solo thriller (after The Blue Zone). Charles Friedman, a New York hedge fund trader, perishes in a bombing at Grand Central Station that destroys the railroad car in which he was riding one morning from his home in Greenwich, Conn. Ty Hauck, head of the Greenwich police's violent crime unit, enters the picture when a hit-and-run victim turns out to have a vague connection to Friedman. Soon, Friedman's widow and her kids are threatened by men searching for vast sums of money her late husband never earned. The stakes rise as Hauck's involvement shifts from professional to personal. While the reader will occasionally see the next drop, tunnel or curve looming far ahead, the roller-coaster thrills are still there in abundance.

With doubt suddenly cast on everything she has ever known, Karen, with Hauck, steps into a widening storm of hedge fund losses, international scams, and murder. And as the investigations converge, these two strangers touched by tragedy are pulled into a deepening relationship and unwittingly open the door to a twisted—and deadly—conspiracy.

With its breakneck pacing, plentiful twists, compelling characters, and abundant heart, The Dark Tide confirms Andrew Gross's place as a master storyteller at the top of his game.

Staff Writer

Glenville School parents, such as Paul Curtis, said he and his children also contributed to the rebuilding costs and so they deserved to draw some benefit from it....

...While a couple of speakers broached the topic of Glenville School's fate given plans to move the students to a temporary home this fall and begin reconstructing the 1970 school, the subject at the top of most parents' minds last night was Hamilton Avenue School.

Many of those parents had attended a special meeting the Board of Education held Wednesday night specifically to address their concerns, and last night they were back with more questions and criticism.

Many said they were suspicious that school officials weren't telling them everything about the health risks their children faced from the mold that forced the school to be evacuated several weeks ago....

...Officials said they will allow experts to talk to their experts but that they won't allow a third-party to get onto the premise because they are still conducting their own investigation into what caused the mold....

RESPONCE TO A RECENT EMAIL TO GreenwichRoundup@gmail.com


Dear {**********} Redacted,

I am sorry for the delay in responding to you, I know you sent two emails so far. We have been getting flooded with emails from parents and taxpayers about the Hamilton Avenue School students.

There are a lot of emails about no school books and supplies for Hamilton Avenue Children.

I am trying to keep up with all the news tips, but unfortunately I am blind in one eye and the left eye is crossed, which makes it difficult to hunt and peck on the key board with one finger.

Often I have to greatly magnify the type on the Greenwich Library computers in order to read materials, often this leads to the
Wildly excited or active and frantic or frenzied type on this blog.

If you or anyone else would like to submit an article directly to Greenwich Roundup all you have to do is send an email to...

GreenwichRoundup.Newsfeed@blogger.com

Articles can be submitted
anonymously, because of the vindictive nature of some school and political officials in Greenwich.

I will eventually read and respond on all of the email news tips concerning Hamilton Avenue School. I am about a quarter of the way through the emails.

So please submit your articles directly to ....

Please post
anonymously or better yet come up with a sarcastic byline

New England has a long and storied history of publishing
anonymously

For example there are revolutionary heroes such as Ben Franklin
who at 12 he became an apprentice to his brother James, a printer. When Ben was 15, James created the New England Courant, the first truly independent newspaper in the colonies.

When denied the option to write to the paper, Franklin invented the pseudonym of
Mrs. Silence Dogood, who was ostensibly a middle-aged widow. The letters were published in the paper and became a subject of conversation around town. Neither James nor the Courant's readers were aware of the ruse, and James was unhappy with Ben when he discovered the popular correspondent was his younger brother.

Another example is Thomas Paine who was an English pamphleteer, revolutionary, radical, classical liberal and intellectual. He lived and worked in Britain until the age of 37, when he migrated to the American colonies just in time to take part in the American Revolution. His main contribution was as the author of the powerful, widely read pamphlet, Common Sense (1776), advocating independence for the American Colonies from the Kingdom of Great Britain, and of The American Crisis, supporting the Revolution.

Later, Paine was a great influence on the French Revolution. He wrote the Rights of Man (1791) as a guide to the ideas of the Enlightenment.

What a brave and wonderful man.


sincerely,

Brian

MORE INFORMATION:

Greenwich Time is a daily newspaper based in Greenwich, Connecticut, USA. The paper shares an editor and publisher with The Advocate of nearby Stamford, Connecticut. Both papers are owned by Hearst Corporation and operated through a joint venture by MediaNews Group.

The Time and its sister paper, The Advocate, were sold to Hearst for US$62.4 million by Tribune Company in a deal that closed November 1, 2007. The sale did not include Tribune-owned land in Stamford and Greenwich, including the papers' printing presses. Eventually, Hearst plans to print both The Advocate and the Time at the Connecticut Post plant in Bridgeport. The Post is owned by MediaNews, which manages The Advocate and the Time for Hearst, taking 60 percent of net income from the papers.[2]

In March 2007, Tribune Co. had announced it would sell the two papers to Gannett for US$73 million, but the deal fell through when Gannett refused to honor 35 Advocate newsroom workers' union contract with Local 2110 of United Auto Workers.[2]

Greenwich Capital, a top issuer of mortgage-backed securities in the subprime market, is based on Steamboat Road in Greenwich. The unit was asked by the SEC to hand over some of its financial documents, but RBS officials would not comment on the probe beyond that.

POSSESSION

Loren Antonia Ferraro, 23, of Stamford was arrested March 24 after attempting to steal a store safe from Sundaze Tanning at 280 Railroad Ave. She was charged with interfering with a police officer, possession of crack cocaine and third degree larceny. Store employees told police that Ferraro, a patron of the business, attempted to steal the safe and a nail gun set. Ferraro left the scene and later returned to find police there. The nail gun set and safe were found in a back storage room. Police reported Ferraro “violently resisted” officers as she was being handcuffed. A search of her car produced a rock lodged between the backrest and seat portion of the driver’s seat. It later tested positive for the presence of cocaine. Ferraro was released on a $1,000 surety bond and is due in court March 31.
