"Little Pink House" by Jeff Benedict. Grand Central Publishing.
The turning point in the saga comes when New London's pragmatic mayor, LLOYD BEACHY, gathers together the feuding parties and nearly engineers an amicable settlement. A pair of activists, John and Sarah Steffian, have become so disillusioned by Gaudiani and her enterprise that they thwart a compromise by refusing to drop a series of obstructionist lawsuits. Acrimony prevails, and the Fort Trumbull project is consigned to a long slog of litigation and hard feelings that one resident compares to a seven-year prostate exam.“Little Pink House” is a great achievement as a piece of local reporting. Click to read the review about this interesting book in The Day-New London, CT. by Kate Moran editor and reporter for the Times-Picayune in New Orleans.

I'm writing with a simple announcement which let's just go ahead and get it out there: my debut novel, The Slide, is now, as of this very morning, available on store shelves across the country. This is terribly exciting for me, and I cannot possibly stress how important these first few days of sales are. It's a numbers game, this one, and quite literally every sale makes a big difference.

California has had the advantage of SEED grants, research grants and facilities grants from the institute that have been unavailable to the rest of the country. The money has led a number of the nation’s leading stem cell researchers to move to California, including two who came to Stanford Michael Clarke, MD, from the University of Michigan, and PHILIP BEACHY, PhD, from Johns Hopkins. And the CIRM money has attracted private matching funds that have enabled the building of new stem cell centers, such as the Lorry I. Lokey Stem Cell Research Building at Stanford, projected to be the largest stem cell research facility in the nation.

Creve Coeur — Researchers at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center say they have discovered how to genetically modify rice to make it more resistant to a disease that is ravaging Asian rice farms. "The breakthrough came when we understood how the virus made the plant sick," said Roger N. Beachy, president of the center. "Then we used that information against the virus." The technology is viable in the greenhouse and in the laboratory, Beachy said. The next step is to test it in the field.

Mr. Beachy's crisp prose underscores the lethargy and bittersweet ache that define Potter's first summer home after college. The author renders, paradoxically, the futility of language to convey both the hopelessness and the hope that everyone, both Potter and his readers, have all at one point felt so deeply.

The 83-year-old sternwheeler, known as the Kumdis River Lodge, was destroyed by fire on Christmas Eve.
Port Clements firemen received the call at 10:30 am on Dec. 24. Fire chief Craig Beachy says smoke was visible from the town's small craft harbour and Port Clements resident Dave Unsworth saw it from there.
"He saw the smoke coming from around the corner of the bay," says Mr. Beachy. At that point no one knew what was on fire. Click to read the complete story in the qciobserver.com - BC Canada
