New from the Norwood News

The Norwood News is up online now. Here's a quick preview of our stories:

On Valentine's Day morning, a man who lived in the Norwood area his entire life was shot dead while getting into his car. No arrests have been made, but the man's companion and others say the victim was embroiled in a heated dispute with his landlord. Police said the man was not robbed.

Our in-depth look at Adolfo Carrion's performance as borough president, which we put on the blog last night. His 8th and final state of the borough address is tomorrow morning at 9:30 at Lehman College.

Our editorial on Adolfo.

Housing bills, including one that would repeal vacancy decontrol, are now in the hands of the Democratically-controlled Senate, giving hope to tenant advocates across the five boroughs and putting the spotlight on new senate housing chair Pedro Espada, Jr.

Riders and advocates made a final and passionate plea in the Bronx to stave off a slew of proposed transit cuts.

Eva Bornstein has led a dramatic turnaround at the Bronx's only performing arts center.

Despite failing to file financial disclosure forms, which could prevent her from receiving public financing, Council member Maria Baez says she's running for a third term in 14th District, which is now increasingly crowded with candidates.
