October 20, birthdays for Snoop Dogg, Keith Hernandez, John Krasinski
Greetings, Brooklyn. Today is the 293rd day of the year.
ON THIS DAY IN 1938, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle published an article titled “State’s Biggest Probe Ordered for Brooklyn.”
The article focused on an intense law enforcement process being implemented in the borough.
“Governor Lehman’s order in effect naming John Harlan Amen special prosecutor and director of the forthcoming investigation gave him the official word to go ahead with a full and free rein and no bars to restrain him,” the Eagle reported.
NOTABLE PEOPLE born on this day include Oscar Award-winning filmmaker DANNY BOYLE, who was born in 1956; actor WILLIAM CHRISTOPHER, who was born in 1932; rapper, actor and record producer SNOOP DOGG, who was born in 1971; former baseball player KEITH HERNANDEZ, who was born in 1953; “The Office” actor JOHN KRASINSKI, who was born in 1979; Emmy Award-winning actress MELANIE MAYRON, who was born in 1952; “The Road” actor VIGO MORTENSEN, who was born in New York City in 1958; and singer TOM PETTY, who was born in 1953.
NEW YORK CITY Health and Hospitals and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services are teaming up to offer free workshops to help New Yorkers understand Medicare, health care reform, the Affordable Care Act and how to select and purchase insurance from “New York State of Health.” A Brooklyn session will take place today, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Kings County Hospital, 451 Clarkson Ave., Prospect-Lefferts Gardens.
