Bronx News Catch-Up Roundup, Sept. 13

Good afternoon, Bronxites! Yes, it's been quiet here on the blogging front. We're short-staffed at the moment and in-between intern sessions, and we've also been gearing up for a new semester of the Bronx Youth Journalism Initiative (speaking of which--we've extended our application deadline to Sept. 21! Tell your kids/students/friends!)

So: blogging might be on the light side for a bit. But here are some Bronx headlines that you may have missed this week/weekend:

Yet another Bronx Zoo animal escape went down on Sunday. An African antelope, also known as a Kudu, joins the ranks of the Bronx Zoo peacock and the Bronx Zoo cobra. It broke free of its enclosure just in time for professional photographer Andrew Litchenstein to snap its photo.

The Times' Lens Blog highlights a photo slideshow of teenagers attending the prom at the Children's Hospital at Montefiore.

A Bronx Surrogate Judge is in hot water for approving attorney fees for a friend--who also happens to be his campaign fundraiser--for work on estate cases the lawyer never performed.

New York's Guinean immigrants, many based here in the Bronx, are organizing a fight for justice in their homeland, pushing for the arrest and prosecution of security forces there who raped and killed a group of protesters two years ago.

Bronx prosecutor Jennifer Troiano, who is facing DWI charges, fired her defense lawyer because his daughter is a key witness in the case.

A gallery set to open at the Bronx Documentary Center will honor and feature the work of late photographer Tim Hetherington, who was killed last spring covering the conflict in Libya.
