Bronx News Roundup, March 4

Good news: The snow from last week is almost all melted.

Bad news: It may snow tomorrow.

Bronx news:

Some coverage of the MTA hearings at the Paradise Theater on the Grand Concourse last night. (We'll have our coverage of this later today.)

A Bronx Community College student has received a $200,000 fellowship to study at Harvard University.

Police say a body pulled from Easchester Bay yesterday afternoon is that of the missing Scarsdale doctor who disappeared on Sunday.

The Riverdale Press talks about how the owners of the new Bronx Brewery are continuing a long borough tradition of brewing beer right here in the Bronx (well, they're stationed out of Yonkers, for now). The Bronx Brewery recently premiered its new brew, Riverd(ale), at the Bronx Ale House.

Here's a little story (from Fox News!?) on some hero cops who escorted a Long Island woman through the blizzard last week to the Montefiore Medical Center where she received a new liver.

Another story from The Riverdale Press talks about how Bronx residents in Kingsbridge and Riverdale are still waiting to feel the positive effects of recent stimulus funds.

Here's an article that has to do with a recent news story in Philadelphia, where a Principal used a laptop webcam to spy on a student and accuse him of using drugs. Skip to the middle of the article to read a particularly weird quote from a Bronx school administrator, who says spying on students through laptops is "always fun." Yeesh.

Borough Prez. Ruben Diaz Jr. recently launched a new website. Check it out here.

Several Bronx men with connections to a marijuana grow house were recently arrested after the property was busted.
