New in the Mount Hope Monitor

The October edition of the Monitor is now online.

Stories include:

Protesters Say Dogfighting is the Pits
About 20 animal-right protesters held a rally on Sept. 29 opposite the Bronx Supreme Court on East 161st Street, to bring attention to a trial that was due to start that morning, involving five men charged with dogfighting offenses.
The men were arrested in June 2008, when police raided a suspected dogfighting ring at a house on East 179th Street.

This July, the Jonas Bronck Academy, moved from a Riverdale basement to one of the fanciest office buildings in the entire borough.

Local Muslims turned out in force on Sunday, Sept. 20, to celebrate Eid ul-Fitr at Mount Hope Masjid, a mosque on Mount Hope Place, just east of Jerome Avenue.

Editorial: Jury Still Out On Cabrera
On Sept. 15, Fernando Cabrera achieved something few would have thought possible a few months ago: he defeated Councilwoman Maria Baez. “You did it and God did it,” a jubilant Cabrera told his supporters that night. Perhaps. But Cabrera wouldn’t have come close to an upset without the support of the Bronx Democratic Party, the Working Families Party, and several powerful unions.

Health Column: The Flu Vaccine - What You Need To Know
There are TWO different kinds of flu this year: the seasonal flu, which happens every year and H1N1 (a.k.a. swine) flu. You should speak to your doctor about getting vaccinated against both kinds.
