Bronx News Roudup, August 3

A Bronx woman, Angela Murray, has been arrested for the murder and robbery of Guido Felix Brinkmann, a Holocaust survivor, Manhattan resident and owner of a popular nightclub in the 1970s. Police are still searching for Murray's male companion in the crime.

Monroe College graduate, Trina Thompson, is suing her college for her inability to find an appropriate job after receiving her degree in information technology. Thompson is demanding that Monroe repay her $70,000 spent on tuition because the college did not provide adequate career services. I wonder, does Thompson think she is the only college graduate struggling to find employment today?

On Saturday, a crowd of more than 150 South Bronx community members gathered to honor the late Hilton White, an inspirational community leader and basketball coach. During the celebrations, the playground where White once coached basketball was renamed Hilton White Playground and the adjacent street was renamed Hilton White Way. Many of White's protegees, including professional basketball players, doctors and lawyers, gathered at the event to reflect on White's positive influence on the neighborhood.

The New York Daily News declares Judge Sonia Sotomayor the Bronx's latest cultural icon. Her inspirational story is compared with those of other Bronxities Colin Powell and Jennifer Lopez.

Early Saturday morning police shot and killed a man on Southern Boulevard in the Bronx. The man, later identified as Oswaldo Sevilla, fired multiple shots at police before he was shot.


  1. I was really annoyed with the Trina Thompson story when I first read it but I do have some degree of sympathy for her now. The real world is scary, there's no two ways about it and the graduate jobs market is difficult. However, she kind of forfeits sympathy by suing. You're supposed to knuckle down, not sue.
