“Operation Safe Stop” part of NYS Initiative
As part of a statewide initiative, the New Rochelle Police Department will participate in Operation Safe Stop on Wednesday, March 30 from 7 am to 4 pm. NRPD officers will target violators throughout the city who fail to stop for stopped school buses.
The purpose of this program is to increase motorist awareness of child safety, and to be aware of the seriousness of failing to stop for the stopped school busses when children are embarking and disembarking and crossing in front of the buses.
This is the third year the City has participated in Operation Safe Stop, part of the Governor’s Traffic Safety STEP grant program. STEP grant funding allows local agencies to participate in selected enforcement programs during the year, including speed enforcement, aggressive driver, stop sign violations and failure to stop for stopped school buses.Read more

Iona College men's basketball juniors Mike Glover (Bronx, NY) and Scott Machado (Queens, NY) added to their list of accolades for the 2010-11 campaign earning CollegeInsider.com Lou Henson All-American status on their resumes. Glover and Machado were two of 25 players named to the team.
The Gaels were one of two teams to have more than one player with Glover and Machado joining Butler's Matt Howard and Shelvin Mack. The duo was also the lone representatives from the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference and the New York Metro Area.
Glover leads the Gaels and is No. 2 in the MAAC with 17.9 points per game and 10.1 rebounds per game average. He ranks in the Top 10 in the NCAA in field goal percentage (60.6%) and double-doubles (19).

Anthony Bongo, Principal of Isaac E. Young Middle School, has built up one of the most impressive resumes in the City School District of New Rochelle, if by "impressive" you mean the most incompetent. Mr. Bongo is a man not fit to run a Burger King yet he runs one of the largest schools in New Rochelle thanks in large part to the "charity" of his father Anthony Bongo, Sr. of PAB Construction whose "charitable giving" to the New Rochelle Fund for Excellence and various government officials throughout New Rochelle is so widely "appreciated" by the powers that be that his unqualified son was given the position of Assistant Principal at Isaac E. Young Middle school where he was later promoted to the Principalship.Read more
