News Roundup for July 18

Three people were shot yesterday in a bodega on 166th and Summit, across from PS 126, according to Gothamist.

The New York Times has details on the school funding plan released by the Chancellor yesterday. District 14 in Queens would receive the most money of any district under the proposal--$14 million. District 10 in the Bronx also gets a big influx of new funding, almost $9 million. Most of the funds will go to reduce class size.

There's no deal in Albany on Bloomberg's congestion pricing plan, and the NY Post speculates that state legislators didn't want to take risks because some of them will face tough races against council members who are termed out in 2009.

Today's rainstorms caused service changes and delays on the Norwood-bound D train and the Metro North trains, the Daily News reports.

The Daily News reported yesterday on an argument between the Comptroller's office and First Tee Metropolitan Golf, which manages the Mosholu Golf Course, over money it owes the city.
In the same issue, the News writes that the New York Junior Tennis League is returning to the Bronx to offer free tennis lessons in Co-op City. The League used to run a summer program in Mullaly Park, but the courts were shut down for the Yankee Stadium construction.

On the NYC Indymedia website, a Local 608 carpenter criticizes the pre-apprenticeship program for the Croton Water Filtration plant and other projects, arguing that it's part of a historic system that keeps people of color from moving up in the union and making living wages.
