Bronx News Roundup, Feb. 8

Any knowledge you retained from science class will be useful this morning. 

PS 68 in Wakefield tests positive for PCBs.

A tanker truck carrying Carbon Dioxide was involved in an accident early this morning on the ramp of Exit 14 on Interstate 95. It leaked a cloud of gas, but no one appears to be injured.

Well, looks like an interborough war is brewing. A tree removed on the Upper East Side to make way for Second Avenue subway construction is being transplanted in the Bronx and residents in that Manhattan neighborhood there aren't taking it sitting down. (Maybe they have a little too much time on their hands?)

Surveying the Bronx blogosphere, we came across this report on Welcome to Melrose on that  first annual gala of the Bronx Pipe Smoking Society. 

There were two fatal fires in the Bronx yesterday, one on Valentine Avenue and another at the intersection of North Street and Jerome Avenue. Both claimed the lives of women in their 80s. BxNN filed this report yesterday about the death of Mary Mullen, a former schoolteacher, on Valentine Avenue.
