Bronx News Roundup, July 1

Welcome to July, everyone.

This month begins with more of the same up in Albany: complete and total paralysis as Republicans (plus Bronx Senator Pedro Espada, Jr.) remain at an impasse over leadership.

The Times writes that Republicans are desperate to hold on to relevance in the Senate as voting trends are tilting toward Democrats.

The Voice's Tom Robbins says powerful state lobbyists are to blame for the mess in Albany as many reform bills have died as a result of the leadership stalemate.

Federal authorities arrested nine Bronxites for stealing the identities of Puerto Rican residents.

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner went to The Point, a community center in Hunts Point, on Monday to discuss $90 million in stimulus funds that are being made available to help residents and businesses in low-income urban areas.

On Monday at about 10 pm, a 30-year-old man was shot in the head on Bronxwood Avenue.

A Bronx-bred goalkeeper is trying to catch on with the NY Red Bulls.
