Bronx News Roundup, May 19

The Horace Mann School in Riverdale has been closed for the rest of the week because of concerns about swine flu.

Fare-beaters are taking advantage of the honors system on the Bx12 Select Bus Service.

In his weekly column, the Daily News' Bob Kappstatter runs through the lengthy list of Bronx politicians currently being investigated for wrong-doings. He adds that the Bronx Democratic Party has chosen to endorse every incumbent City Council member for reelection. Everyone, that is, except Maria Baez (District 14).

Still on endorsements, the Bronx Democratic Party has endorsed Melinda Katz for city comptroller, Bill de Blasio for public advocate, and Bill Thompson for mayor.

The much-lampooned principal of PS 24, a K through 5th grade school on West 236th Street, has been reassigned.

State Senator Jeff Klein wants to see non-diet sodas taxed, with the money going towards tax relief for homeowners.

More on the city's failure to build the Yankee Stadium replacement parks on time.
