New Rochelle Police Investigating Death Threat Against Talk of the Sound Editor at School District Yard at 47 Cliff Street

February 19, 2011 - 07:38

New Rochelle Police are investigating a death threat against Robert Cox, Managing Editor of Talk of the Sound. A message in large orange block letters was found early Saturday morning painted on the hull of a boat parked on a trailer in the New Rochelle School District Yard at 47 Cliff Street. The boat was the subject of a recent article on Talk of the Sound. The message reads "BOB COX SLEEPS WITH THE FISH". The words were placed next to a decal of a black skull and bones silhouette.

The phrase sleeps with the fishes is a line from the first Godfather movie. It means killed, murdered brutally, or put to death by force.

St. Paul: Closing Bathrooms in New Rochelle's Station is Council's Decision

February 19, 2011 - 03:26

In the Febraury 17, 2011 issue of the Westchester Guardian

In New Rochelle, 22,000 Metro North commuters now have access to a bathroom that had been closed by their City Manager, Chuck Strome. The announcement at the City Council meeting on February 8 was the culmination of an action that started when Strome closed the two station bathrooms. Strome posted a sign on the bathroom door announcing they were closed. Soon after, Council member Richard St. Paul placed another sign saying the bathroom was in his Council district and asked anyone who did not like this decision to contact Strome and to come to the next Council meeting. This sign was removed by an order of Strome.
The morning of the Council meeting, Strome on WVOX recounted the cost of City funds that had been used last;year to keep these bathrooms open. At the City Council meeting that evening he suddenly announced that the Metropolitan Transit Authority had agreed to assist in maintaining the bathrooms by giving some money to restore them and to help in monitoring them.

Nuevamente, Nuestras Escuelas Fallan con Nuestros Hijos

February 18, 2011 - 14:50

El Informe Escolar del Estado de Nueva York de New Rochelle High School presento cuentas y informe global sobre el período 2009-2010 y se publicaron en la página web - https: / / . pdf. Hay una gran cantidad de información sobre todas nuestras escuelas y su desempeño en las muchas pruebas que toman. En general, los resultados de nuestras escuelas primarias y de Albert Leonard son, como siempre, bien. De Isaac Young Middle School, a ver por ti mismo.
Mi problema es que seguimos teniendo una porcentaje no aceptable de la graduacion a tiempo de nuestros hijos en nuestra escuela secundaria. Al final del año escolar, había 3.454 estudiantes de NRHS. 804 estudiantes comenzaron el año escolar, y 775 fueron elegibles para graduarse en 2010, 596 se graduaron a tiempo. Así que de 775 estudiantes que comenzaron el año escolar sólo se graduaron 596 - que es 77%. No sabemos lo que pasó a 29 estudiantes que son estadísticamente desaparecidos.
