A woman discovered an old military explosive while cleaning out her deceased uncle's Throgs Neck home. Police came to dispose of the mortar round, which may have been from the uncle's days in World War II.

Four members of a family from Mott Haven died in a car accident yesterday in Maryland, as they drove back to New York from Virginia Beach. Carmelo Dominguez, his wife Evelyn Morales, daughter Natasha Dominguez and 2-year-old grandson Jose were killed in the wreck.

Students and teachers at Herbert H. Lehman High School, in Westchester Square, worry an 'F' the school received on its DOE report card could mean closure for the school, or at least interfere with a longtime campaign to renovate their unusable football field.

The Post says the replacement of a longtime principal at Lehman two years ago is to blame for its slipping grades, according to some parents.

Mayor Bloomberg says he was unaware of an old city rule that banned cars with city plates from being towed--the regulation meant Assemblyman Nelson Castro, who has $8,600 in unpaid parking tickets, could park without fear.
