4. Why You Should Follow Us on Facebook. Last week there was a bad accident Thursday afternoon that shut down Route 30 in Weston. Commuters who were following us on Facebook saw our re-posting of the Weston Patch story warning them to avoid that stretch on the way home. Those of you who weren't following us on Facebook might have found yourself winding through the Weston back roads on the way home. Just a "hint, hint" to follow us on Facebook. You have nothing to lose and so, so much to gain.
5. The Oprah Effect Hits Bookstores. On this date in 1996, talk show host Oprah Winfrey added books to her list of items she can mention and skyrocket to fame. The influential Oprah Book Club launched today with the announcement of "The Deep End of the Ocean" by Jacquelyn Mitchard as Oprah's first pick.
