Friday’s Buzz: 9.27.13

THE NEWS

  • Timothy Dwight College Dean John Loge ’66 announced in a Thursday email to TD students that he will step down from his position at the end of the academic year, concluding his 23-year tenure in the college. Loge, a lecturer in the English Department, said he will leave the deanship in order to spend more time with his family and  pursue other interests. He first came to Yale as an undergraduate in 1962 and was appointed dean of TD in 1991, following stints as an adviser at Undergraduate Career Services and as a writing tutor in the college.
  • More than two weeks after winning the aldermanic Democratic primary, Ward 7 Alderman Doug Hausladen ’04 still does not know whether he will face a challenger in the general election. Ella Wood ’15, who ran against Hausladen in the primary, is yet to announce whether she will continue on as an independent through the Nov. 5 contest. According to Hausladen, Wood has little time to decide: City Clerk Ron Smith sent a letter to candidates who did not receive their parties’ endorsements saying they had until today to make a decision.
  • New Haven foodies these days have plenty of reasons to rejoice. Food trucks and carts have long had a presence in downtown New Haven, but their numbers have grown over the last several years. Many of the trucks cater primarily to the Yale community, which seems to have embraced the street food culture.
