Bronx News Roundup, March 4

Happy Friday everyone! Apparently, it's warming up just enough for it to rain all weekend. Lovely. To the news!

Story of the Day:
Ridiculously tragic story in the Post today about a 25-year-old Bronx woman, Lana Rosa, who was beaten into a coma, allegedly during a dispute with a man over a parking spot in the East Village. Police arrested Oscar Fuller and charged him with the crime. Here's a video report from the Post:

Quick Hits:
Ex-State Senate Majority Leader Pedro Espada Jr. is due in a Brooklyn federal court today for a pre-trial hearing. Espada and his son are facing federal fraud charges involving the nonprofit health care clinics Espada founded and runs. 

Police are searching for a crew of fire escape burglars who are targeting apartments in Morrisania.

Lots of coverage today on the Bronx's New York Botanical Garden's upcoming "The Orchid Show: On Broadway," a collaboration between the Garden and theater folks (hence the "Broadway" theme) that opens tomorrow. The Times calls it a "Grand Stage for a Diva Plant." Here's video from the Daily News:

A housing coordinator at a special needs apartment building in Melrose was fired after allegedly scamming tenants out of thousands of dollars.

The "Guido Monologues," directed by Pelham Bay native Joseph Mileto, opens off-Broadway next week.

A couple of Bronx teens were nominated for an Emmy this year for a show they did on Bronxnet.

Some love for the grand architecture at Bronx Community College.
