Bronx News Roundup, March 5

The Bronx may get a lovin' spoonful of springtime this weekend. Forecast calls for sunny days with highs in the 50s. Of course, there is always the chance that it will snow again and I'll have wet socks for another week.
Some Bronx news:

The John F. Kennedy girls basketball team will be competing in the city finals this Saturday at 11am at Madison Square Garden. The Lady Knights beat out the #7 seed, Manhattan Central, in a semifinals game earlier this week to reach the finals for the first time since 2007. J.F.K will be playing the #1 seed Murry Bergtraum for the title.

Some Bronx seniors are speaking out against the MTA's decision to cut the Bx14. Many seniors rely on the Bx14 to get around. A large portion of middle school students also rely on the Bx14 to get to and from school at Villa Maria Academy.

Montefiore Medical Center recently developed a hand held device that may help prevent migranes.

More of a city-wide story here. The City Room blog at the Times talks about some new traffic signals that have been installed around the city.

Boxing comes back to the Bronx. Migul Cotto and Yuri Foreman will compete to see who can punch each other in the head the hardest at the new Yankee Stadium in June.

A woman, recently appointed "rabba" (a feminized version of rabbi) of a Bronx synagogue, is creating a stir amongst Jewish Orthodox authorities.

Here's a slideshow giving an update of the old Yankee Stadium demolition process. Is it just me, or does the stadium looks like a perfect location for future Snake Plissken adventures?
