Covenant Ballet Theatre of Brooklyn (CBT) invites dogs and their owners of New York City to sign up for the dance academy’s first rescuethon event on Saturday, May 5th, 2012. During hard economic times, arts programs are usually the first to be eliminated from funding. Animals are also often to be the first to be neglected and discarded. The Rescue-a-thon is to help raise money for both the academy's scholarship program and the Sean Casey Rescue center. Sean Casey is a rescue center that takes in unfortunate animals and tries to give them a higher quality of life. The animals are cared for and/or rehabilitated until they are brought home to live a happy and healthy life.
Unfortunately, like most rescue centers, Sean Casey needs money in order to be able to stay true to their mission.
Artistic Director Marla Hirokawa became involved with Sean Casey when she was looking to adopt another dog. She immediately liked the center and wanted to help them out. Through the rescue-a-thon, she is bringing her two loves – dogs and dancing – together and helping them out. The rescue-a-thon will be a walk-a-thon for both humans and dogs. Registration for the event is $25. The fee covers one (1) owner and a maximum of two (2) dogs. Walkers do not have to have a dog to do the walk.
All registration must be done prior to the event. Registration may be done at http://CBTRescueathon.eventbrite.com/ or at Covenant Ballet. Check-in will begin at 9:00am, and the walk will begin at 10:00am. Check-in will take place near the Marine Park Avenue U parking lot. There will be at least three (3) viewing station along the path for spectators and supporters to watch and cheer.
After the event, members of CBT’s Junior Company will perform company repertory "Doggone." There will also be raffles sold for a "Pet Portrait" painting (estimated value $300-$350)

The Patch seems to only report crime west of Nostrand...
The 77th Pct East of Nostrand is pretty evenly split between CH and PH. This week, I've decided to post it in the PH section of the board.
Toy Gun Stick-Up
Two men were attacked and robbed with a trio of thieves with a toy gun as they were walking on Pacific Street between Vanderbilt and Underhill.
A 25-year-old man said that three men came up to him and a friend with the fake firearm and demanded property. Both men were punched in the face and then a bag and an iphone 3G were stolen from the 25-year-old. The thieves took off on foot, leaving behind a scooter. The attack happened at 2:13 a.m. on Sunday, April 8, according to a police report.
A woman parked her 1-year-old baby’s stroller in front of the boy’s stepfather’s house, rang the bell and then left.
She left the baby on St. Johns Place between Underhill and Washington avenues on Monday, April 2, at about 10 p.m. The boy was uninjured, according to a police report.
A 40-year-old man reported that his Trek green mountain bike worth $1,200 was stolen from home on Carlton Avenue between St. Marks and Prospect sometime between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Thursday, April 5.
In addition, a 31-year-old man said his Bridgestone bicycle worth $1,140 was stolen from where it was locked with a Kryptonite u-lock on Plaza Street East. It was stolen between 1:30 a.m. on March 29 and the morning of March 30, according to a police report.
2004 Foreign Green Car Fetish?
In the same week, two 2004 green European-made cars were stolen in Prospect Heights.
A 55-year-old man reported that his green 2004 Volvo S60 was stolen sometime between 10 p.m. on April 1 and 9 p.m. on April 2 from Washington Avenue between Pacific and Dean streets.
In addition, a 38-year-old woman reported that her green 2004 Volkswagen Passat was stolen from Sterling Place at Vanderbilt Avenue sometime between 9 p.m. on April 4 and 7:20 a.m. on April 5, according to police reports.
A 37-year-old man reported that his locked $16,000 motorcycle was stolen from Prospect Place between Vanderbilt and Underhill avenues sometime between 11:30 p.m. on April 5 and 12:40 p.m. on April 6 , according to a police report.
A 51-year-old man was arrested after a cop saw him put crack in his mouth. It didn’t appear to help him that when the cop approached him he spit it out and put it in his pocket. The arrest took place on April 6 at 5:25 p.m. at the corner of Franklin Avenue and Prospect Place, according to a police report.
My fiance and I are looking for a 2br in Ft Greene, ideally somewhere with outdoor space. We've been in the neighborhood for a number of years, so we're hoping we don't have to leave. Price is flexible, but hoping to keep it around or under 3k. If anyone has any leads or suggestions, please help us out!

Well the non industrial industry standard ones anyway.
NaturalNews can now confirm that the Michigan Department of Natural Resources has, in total violation of the Fourth Amendment, conducted two armed raids on pig farmers in that state, one in Kalkaska County at Fife Lake and another in Cheboygan County. Staging raids involving six vehicles and ten armed men, DNA conducted unconstitutional, illegal and arguably criminal armed raids on these two farms with the intent of shooting all the farmers' pigs under a bizarre new "Invasive Species Order" (ISO) that has suddenly declared traditional livestock to be an invasive species.
By the DNR’s classification of feral swine, any pig with a certain hair color, a straight tail or pointy ears would be considered feral among other characteristics. Only one trait from the list is needed to fall into the feral category.
Natural pork falls under 'feral' categorization
"If you had them live outside they would grow fur to help protect against the sun,” said Ellie Mullins. “So automatically the DNR would classify that as feral and illegal."
Ellie Mullins and her husband Pat own Local New Buffalo, a small grocery store in New Buffalo. Open for a year, they’ve grown a customer base selling homemade bacon and sausage.
The Mullins use naturally raised ‘heritage pigs’ for their pork and feel if they want it to be local, and legal it needs to come from Indiana.
Heritage pigs are raised outside and grow fur making them illegal under the law. "Saying it's not allowed in Michigan, that really hurts our business," she said.Fight white guilt and injustice by smoking tax free guilt free Reservation Smokes or go gamble in a Native Casino.
I like to stick it to The Man, The Man happens to be Liberal in NYC(power Structure).
Construction is presently underway at Beny’s Epicene.
It will located at 567 Vanderbilt Avenue (Pacific/Dean), and feature organic vegetables and dry food: cake, groceries, cookies, and other items.
One will be able to eat there , not just buy stuff for take out.
It will seat a maximum of 10 people in the space and will operate daily from 7 AM to 9 PM.
...I suspect our store will be equally yummy.
Have you been wanting a fish themed sports bar? Regardless, we will soon get one.
This place was supposed to open back in December, and I've now heard they will finally open within a few weeks. Located at 612 Vanderbilt Avenue (St. Marks/Prospect), Fish, Fish, Mo Fish will feature 8 seats at the bar with another 12-17 seats at tables around the space.
There are no plans to use the rear yard/patio space as of yet.

This is my first post on here, so I apologize in advance if I am not posting it in the correct section and for being a bit newbie.
Ok here's my problem: Since last night, I don't have gas (i.e. stove) or hot water. I know I am responsible for paying for gas, but isn't the landlord responsible for proving me with hot water? When I called the super, he told me the gas and hot water were related and I should contact my gas provider. Is he correct? I mean if actively chose not to have gas in my apartment, shouldn't I still receive hot water? I also ran into other tenants who said they didn't have gas last night but they did have hot water. What should I do?
If it helps, I live at 654 Park Pl., and there's a furnace in our apartment.
Hi, how are you guys doing?
Just wondering if anyone knows about any live-and-work artist collectives in Brooklyn, like Flux Factory or Castle Braid. I'm planning on moving soon, and it would be awesome if I could track down a few chill collectives to apply to.
Thanks in advance
Great news for the stretch of 5th avenue between 6th and 7th avenue.

Does anyone know what's going on Saratoga park? There are just now 2 police helicopters hold up on the air.
Did anyone hear that extremely loud bird with a distinctive, long song starting around 5 am this morning near Park and Vanderbilt? Could you identify it?
Has anyone been hearing that high-pitched ringing noise in the neighborhood that goes on 24/7? I live on Fulton and Clinton and have been hearing it for a couple of weeks and it's driving me crazy. I finally called 311 yesterday and they put me in touch with the local police precinct, who basically told me that they couldn't help me until I could pinpoint the source. I have taken a walk around and it seems to be loudest around Fulton and Clinton, although my neighbor thinks it's coming from the Atlantic Yards. The sound is electrical in nature and doesn't stop. If anyone could help or complain to 311 it would be great. My 311 service request number was C1-1-742075507. Thanks.
This guy just appeared at my door asking for "the landlord" claiming he's from Verizon, immediately flashing an iffy badge claiming Verizon, saying his visit was "about some work we need to do in the back."
i shooed him away. and then watched as he canvassed/visited every other apartment on our side of the block, and those too, i'm sure, allegedly "about some work in the back?"
i smell horse-hooey. be warned.
