Latest Edition of Norwood News is Out!

Norwood News Vol. 28 No. 18

By DAVID CRUZ 

The latest edition of the Norwood News is out with plenty of community news you can use. We begin with some unexpected news: the resignation of Community Board 7’s District Manager. Read how Community Board members reacted to his resignation.

Before we begin with the inside-the-cover stories, we want to remind parents that the Norwood News is accepting applications for a FREE, that’s right, FREE afterschool journalism program called Bronx Youth Heard. It’s a cool writing workshop that lasts through December, and it teaches the fundamental of journalism to Bronx high school students. Check out the link here: http://bit.ly/BYHFall2015.

Now back to our regular coverage: We swing into the pages of the award-winning community newspaper with stories of Participatory Budgeting redux, courtesy of Norwood Councilman Andrew Cohen. His office is once again jump-starting the six month civic endeavor which asks you how you would spend $1 million in city money (check out the nifty step-by-step guide on PB by Jasmine Gomez). Next, Adedamola Agboola chronicles rehab work at St. James Park.

We also have some slice-of-life pieces on the dangers of K2, efforts to restore a 50-plus-year-old church organ and your regular staples: Out & About and Inquiring Photographer.

So check out the pages of the Norwood News or grab a copy at any of 300 locations throughout the northwest Bronx. Share them with your friends, and be sure to share thoughts with me at dcruz@norwoodnews.org. Til next time!
