Bronx News Roundup for Dec. 17th

In a surprise audit, Sen. Pedro Espada called on the MTA to suspend budget cuts and look to its real estate holdings to provide a "long-term solution." This comes after recent news the transit authority would be cutting the Bx14 bus line.

With 24 sites being cut from the City's plan to make over 200 new parks (Morris Heights is one of them), residents might still have to trek miles to reach the nearest green spot. The loss is estimated to save the city over $25 million.

A 22-year-old Bronx man was released yesterday after serving a five-year term in jail. He couldn't get a trial, until the Daily News featured him, because of a court backlog.

The establishment of an HIV/AIDS shelter in the vicinity of an area shopping mall has got residents of Community Board 12 fired up for a meeting on Jan. 7th. Residents say the structure will "suck the life out" of the community.

A Bronx man was arrested today for an illegal upload of the "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" back in April. The movie was watched by 4.1 million viewers before officially hitting the box-office.

A program at Cardinal Hayes High School today goes hand-in-hand with a series of initiatives aimed to stop drunk driving and coincides with Leandra's Law that will go into effect in New York this Friday. Anyone convicted of a DWI will have Breathalyzer test installed in their car that measures sobriety before letting the ignition start.

A $12,000 reward is being held for anyone who knows something about a Bronx mom who was shot, and died at Jacobi Hospital, last week.

The Bronx Zoo recently welcomed a new resident; a female Wolf's guenon. The small vibrant monkeys hail from the Africa's Congo River.
