New Haven tree lighting is Thursday on Green

NEW HAVEN — Santa Claus will visit the Elm City Thursday to kick off the holiday season at the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony on the downtown Green.
The Norway spruce towering 65 feet over the Green will be lit with 20,000 energy-efficient LED lights at 5:30 p.m. The tree was donated by Steve and Marie McDermott of North Branford and is being sponsored by Peoples United Bank.
The celebration features live music performances by students from Brennan-Rogers School, Mauro-Sheridan Magnet School, Celentano Museum Academy and the Educational Center for the Arts Vocal Ensemble. Mayor John DeStefano Jr. and Gil Simmons of WTNH News 8 will act as co-hosts for the event.

Santa will visit with kids and take photos until 7:30 p.m. Children can participate in free activities, such as carousel rides, mini-car rides, holiday crafts, storytelling, and free mechanical animal rides as part of an "Alpine Safari."
The ceremony is put on by city’s Department of Arts, Culture and Tourism and Department of Parks, Recreation and Trees. Children’s activities are sponsored by Casey Family Services and Yale-New Haven Hospital.
DeStefano said in a statement the tree lighting celebration is a regional tradition and he urged people "stick around afterwards to enjoy the world-class shopping, arts and food here in New Haven."
In case of "extreme inclement weather," the event will be postponed until Friday. For information, call (203) 946-7172 or go to www.infonewhaven.com.

Free film on environmental links to cancer at Yale Peabody Museom of Natural History

Editor's note: All information in this post was contributed. (That means we did not write it) It is largely unedited here and posted as a community service.

 NEW HAVEN - The Yale Peabody Museum will hold a screening of "Living Downstream," a documentary based on the acclaimed book by ecologist and cancer survivor Sandra Steingraber, Ph.D, on Dec. 9.
The film follows her during one pivotal year as she travels across North America, working to break the silence about cancer and its environmental links. After a routine cancer screening, she receives some worrying results and is thrust into a period of medical uncertainty. Thus begin two journeys: her private struggles with cancer and her public quest to bring attention to the urgent human rights issue of cancer prevention.

Unfortunately, Sandra is not the only one on a journey—the chemicals against which she is fighting are also on the move. Several experts in the fields of toxicology and cancer research highlight their own findings on two pervasive chemicals: atrazine, one of the most widely used herbicides in the world, and the industrial compounds, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). We follow these invisible toxins as they migrate to some of the most beautiful places in North America. We see how these chemicals enter our bodies and how, once inside, scientists believe they may be working to cause cancer. Living Downstream is a powerful reminder of the intimate connection between the health of our bodies and the health of our air, land and water.
 
Living Downstream is the third of four in a series of environmental films presented by Audubon Connecticut and made possible by support from the Quinnipiac River Fund in partnership with the Yale Peabody Museum, Wallingford Public Library and Quinnipiac River Watershed Association (QRWA). The series focuses on the health of waterways, harmful effects of toxins in the environment and environmental stewardship. The final Peabody screening, The Work of 1,000, will take place in April 2012, on a day and time to be determined.

Representatives from local environmental organizations will be at each of the film screenings to speak with the public about the Quinnipiac River watershed and the work they are doing to protect its valuable natural resources.

New Haven police to hold gun buyback Dec. 3

NEW HAVEN - The New Haven Police Department will participate in a gun buyback from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Dec. 3, according to a statement.
The buyback is sponsored by the National Injury Free Coalition for Kids, the statement said.

Read about the gun buyback in 2009 in New Haven.

"The gun buyback program is part of a larger movement for gun safety(and) injury prevention. The goal is to get guns off the street. The New Haven Police Department is committed in playing an active role in this goal," the statement said.


"This year’s event will coincide with a nationwide gun buyback day" on Dec. 3, the statement said.

The event will be held at the New Haven Police Academy, 710 Sherman Parkway.

The department's policy of “no questions asked” will be in effect and that will permit "individuals to anonymously dispose of firearms without fear of charges for illegal possession when turning in the weapon," the statement said.
"Non-operational guns, antiques, BB guns and holsters will be accepted but do not qualify for a gift card."
"Gun dealers and/or people that the police have reason to believe are gun dealers are excluded from this program and can not exchange guns for a gift card. An additional gift card will be exchanged for those firearms identified as assault weapons and/or sawed-off shotguns as an enhanced incentive. Free distribution of gun locks will also be offered at the drop off location," the statement said.

Other rules:
"Amnesty for possession of a firearm without a permit is granted for those citizens turning in a firearm and/or ammunition at the time they walk into the gun buyback facilities and extends only for that period of time. Amnesty is not granted for the time period prior to walking into the gun buyback location or after one leaves the location. If a citizen decides not to turn in their firearm after entering the exchange location because the weapon does not qualify for a gift card, the firearm will be seized by the officers if the citizen does not possess a State permit to carry pistols and revolvers."

The statement further notes: (with emphasis in caps done by the Police Department) "In order to receive amnesty for illegal possession at the time you turn in the weapon, protocol MUST be precisely followed. The protocol includes:

1. Firearms MUST be delivered unloaded;

2. Firearms MUST be put in a clear plastic bag and put into another container (gym bag, backpack, etc);

3. If depositing ammunition in addition to a firearm, ammunition must be delivered in separate bag;

4. If transporting the firearm by car, the firearm must be transported in the trunk of the car;

5. After the firearm is screened by officers and determined to be a working firearm, a $50 gift card will be given;

6. An additional $50 gift card will be exchanged for those firearms identified as assault weapons and/or sad-off shotguns;

7. Non-operational guns, antiques firearms, BB guns and holsters will be accepted but do not qualify for a gift card;

Partners in this year’s event are:Yale New Haven Hospital, Walmart and the National Injury Free Coalition for Kids,  the statement said.

Pulitzer-Prize Winner at New Haven Public Library Dec. 8

Editor's note: All information in this post was contributed in a release. It is largely unedited here and posted as a public service.


A Father and Daughter's Journey into the Storm

Pulitzer Prize winning-writer Barbara Walsh will speak at 6 p.m. Dec. 8

 at New Haven Free  Public  Library, 133 Elm St.

The event is free. Following the talk, she will sign both "August Gale" and her children's book, "Sammy in the Sky," which is illustrated by painter Jamie Wyeth. Books will be for sale at the talk.

In "August Gale," Walsh—who has interviewed killers, bad cops, and crooked politicians in the course of her career — takes readers on two heartrending odysseys: one into a deadly Newfoundland hurricane and the lives of schooner fishermen who relied on God and the wind to carry them home; the other, into a squall stirred by a man with many secrets: a grandfather who remained a mystery until long after his death.

 

Sixty-eight years after the hurricane that claimed several of her Marystown ancestors, Walsh searches for memories of the August gale and the grandfather who abandoned her dad as a young boy. Together, she and her father journey to Newfoundland to learn about the 1935 storm, and along the way her dad begins to talk about the man he cannot forgive. Contact the library for more information: (203) 946-8835.

Connecticut Native American Inter-Tribal Urban Council to hold social

NEW HAVEN – All are invited to take part in a social Saturday of the Connecticut Native American Inter-Tribal Urban Council, which will announce scholarships and feature a talk by noted wampum historian Allen L. Hazard.


A pot luck, in keeping with Native American tradition, will be held from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Engleman Hall on the Southern Connecticut State University campus. Those who attend are asked to bring a dish of their choice, as when Native Americans gathered the tradition was to bring an offering of whatever crop or food product they helped produce, said James E. Rawlings, a leader in the group.

The council, growing fast with members who have Native American roots, is currently looking for a location in which to open a cultural center.

Hazard, a member of the Narragansett Tribe, works to preserve the history of making wampum.

Wampum are traditional, sacred shell beads of the Eastern Woodlands tribes of the indigenous people of North America.
