Bronx News Roundup, July 24

Happy Friday! Here's a few stories to chew on.

Former Bronx B.P. Freddy Ferrer, who recently announced his support for Council Member Maria Baez (who's facing a slew of challengers), was recently fined for campaign finance violations during his unsuccessful run for mayor in 2005.
The Daily News takes a look at a new documentary about the trials and tribulations of the Bronx Center for Science and Mathematic, a high school in the South Bronx. The film is called "Whatever It Takes."

Three borough presidents, including the Bronx's Ruben Diaz, Jr., want more oversight in place over the city's schools, while mayoral control is in limbo. Speaking of mayoral control, Senate Dems may have cut a deal with the Bloomberg administration on new rules for continuation of the control structure.

A marketing firm has a new slogan for promoting Bronx real estate: "If you think you know about the Bronx -- Think again." Kind of vague, I think, but it's better than "The Bronx is Burning."

Enjoy the weekend. Check back here on Monday for more politics and more Kingsbridge Armory coverage. Bronx B.P. Ruben Diaz, Jr. is holding a hearing on the Armory proposal on Monday at Lehman College at 6 p.m.
