4. Newsletters. If you aren't getting the Weston Patch newsletter in your inbox each morning, you're missing out on a simple way to see the latest headlines. Sign up today for daily, weekly or breaking newsletters (or all three!)
5. Something to Smile About. On this date in 1913, Leonardo da Vinci's famous painting "Mona Lisa" was found inside waiter Vincenzo Peruggia's hotel room in Florence. Peruggia had once worked at the Louvre and had participated in a heist while there. The painting of the coyly smiling woman had been missing for more than two years.
