Bronx News Roundup, Wednesday, Oct. 17

Here's a little late afternoon post to tide you over before the Norwood News hits the street and the Web tomorrow morning.

North Fork opened up a student-run bank on the Theodore Roosevelt High School campus. All the money made will go to paying the student workers who will make $11 an hour -- more than the so-called living wage of $10 an hour.

A little story about this weekend's Tour de Bronx. If I can get a bike, I'm there.

More coverage of the Quachaun Brown murder trial. This Times story basically says everyone was at fault.

(For those unfamiliar with the sad tale, 4-year-old Quachaun was beaten to death in Norwood in early 2006, allegedly by his mother's teenage boyfriend, Jose Calderon. The mother, Aleisha Smith, has already pleaded guilty and faces seven and a half years in prison. Calderon, looking at the possibility of 25 to life, is currently on trial.)

Kapstatter's Bronx political notes. Pedro Espada: Welcome to the neighborhood! We look forward to hearing from you.

Bronx Senator Jeff Klein sorta, kinda endorses Spitzer's immigrant driver's license plan on The Observer's blog.

More great Bronx news coming in tomorrow's Norwood News. We'll go over the stories on the blog and have everything available on our beautiful new Web site.
