Bronx Weekend News Roundup, Nov. 1

Welcome to November everyone. To the news!

We'll start with the story of Luis Rosado, 29, a Bronx photographer willing to risk life and limb to capture scenes from the top of buildings and other structures. Rosado says he's been on top of 50 borough buildings, bridges and billboards. 

Now, for the requisite post-Halloween crime stories:

Two men were shot in connection with a Halloween party in Williamsbridge last night. Both are expected to recover. Neither is reportedly cooperating with police.

Two mask-wearing bandits robbed a Bronx man who was working on his motorcycle yesterday. They shot him even after he gave up his wallet and gold chain.
(That wasn't so bad.)

In other news:

On Friday, Carmen Huerta, a 33-year-old Bronx mom, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and driving drunk. A year ago, after drinking cognac at a party, Huerta crashed her station wagon on the West Side Highway, killing an 11-year-old girl. There were six other minors in the car.

A Colombian couple, now broken up, fights for customers of the line of butt-boosting jeans they started together. One has a shop in The Hub on Third Avenue, the other sells out of a store on Fordham Road.

The Bronx Science girls soccer team is second in the latest Post PSAL rankings as it heads into the playoffs.

The Lehman High School football team kept its playoff hopes alive with a thrilling win over Kennedy on Friday night.

Capri Anderson (born Christina Walsh), the porn star found in the bathroom of Charlie Sheen's Plaza hotel room during his allegedly coke-fueled rampage, is apparently a nice Irish girl from the Bronx.

A large man looks to make a big difference at the Andrew Jackson houses in Melrose despite increasing violence.

Gothamist writes about an e-mail they received saying the Bronx DA's office is worried that the NYPD is under-charging offenses to keep felony statistics down.

The Medical Examiner's office has ruled that the death of a Nicaraguan diplomat, who was found with his throat slashed and a fistful of hair in his hand in his Mt. Hope apartment last month, was a suicide, not a murder.

The Daily News named Robert Salerno, the cop shot three times in Morrisania, it's "Hero of the Month" in today's paper, but the story is not online.

And finally, in we-told-you-this-wouldn't-be-a-great-idea news, Bronx Parking, the owner of the new parking garages at the new Yankee Stadium are hiking up game-day prices in an effort to avoid defaulting on millions in tax-exempt bonds it used to build the garages. The Daily News' Juan Gonzalez, who has been critical of the new Yankee Stadium project since its inception, says the city's Economic Development Corporation gave Bronx Parking $100 million for the project as well as the right to raise $237 million in tax-exempt bonds for the construction.
