Bronx News Roundup, Aug. 5

A few dozen Bronx youngsters rallied outside the State Supreme Court in the Bronx yesterday, to demand an end to violence in their communities. Through July 25, there had been 69 murders in the borough this year, up from 56 at the same point in 2009.

Bronx Congressman Eliot Engel is among a group of politicians who are skipping Congressman Charles Rangel's 80th birthday party/fund-raiser. Rangel faces ethics charges.

Police in Port Chester arrested a Bronx man after he allegedly attempted to withdraw $3,000 from a local bank using a forged New Jersey driver's license.

Some rare praise for Gov. David Paterson and state lawmakers.

In Riverdale, the cleanup effort after last month's tornado is far from over, reports The Riverdale Press (which has a brand new website).

The Press editorializes about State Senator Pedro Espada, Jr.'s recent claims that God is on his side.
