Bronx News Roundup, May 21

Happy Friday everyone. To the news! 

We'll start with this ugly, sad and disturbing story about a 14-year-old girl stabbed to death in Melrose. The mother's ex-convict, pseudo-boyfriend was arrested in connection with the murder. More from NY1 here.

More (budget related) ugliness : Arts and cultural institutions could be hit hard by Mayor Bloomberg's budget cutbacks. The New York Botanical Garden, here in the Bronx, could lose 42% of its city funding, which officials there say could lead to significant staff cuts and scaled back hours and programming. 

Housing ugliness: A housing court judge took the rare step of issuing an arrest warrant for the landlord of a building on E. 172nd St. that has racked up more than 600 code violations. 

Ok, now for some happier stories. There's going to be a revival of the old hootenanny music scene at Lehman College tonight.

A look at the extreme remote control car scene on the Bronx River near Gun Hill Road.

The Times reviews the new Civil Rights art exhibit at the Bronx Museum of the Arts.

The Bronx Lighthouse charter school received a $100,000 technology grant.

The intersection at E. 203rd Street and Mosholu Parkway, near PS 8, is getting a much-needed crossing guard.

A lawyer who is suing a Bronx judge for not paying back a $500,000 loan (that he allegedly used to pay off gambling debts) had here house raided by investigators early this morning.
