Bronx News Roundup Dec. 4

An assistant principal at the High School of Contemporary Arts (in Williamsbridge) has been fired after the Department of Education determined that she corrected her students' multiple choice answers in last summer's Regents Exam.

The NYT takes a brief look at the career so far of Bronx BP Adolfo Carrion, who may be in line to land a plumb job with the Obama Administration (possibly as HUD Secretary). At one time or another he's been a teacher, a pastor, a district manager (Community Board 5), the VP of a community development group (Promesa), a councilman, a specialist with the Department of City Planning, and more. Does Carrion have what it takes to lead a federal agency? Lukas Herbert, an urban planner and former CB 4 board member, whom Carrion fell out with over the Yankee Stadium project, doesn't think so. (For some background on that dispute, see here and here.)

More on the life, career, and legacy of one-time Bronx political powerhouse Ramon S. Velez, who died last Sunday.

Here's one story local Realtors won't be showing their potential clients.
