Alejandro Rocha is not the first teacher who has been either disciplined or arrested for some words spoken in the classroom. He allegedly spoke about shooting the children and he went to his supervisor to tell what happened. The next thing we learned is that he was arrested for “terrorism” which is something that I know nothing about. Really!
There are all kinds of gaps in the news. Let me share first my own story. I was once told by a police officer in the 24th Precinct that he thought he had to arrest me for turning in a “Saturday night special” that was given to me when I worked in a nearby store. He asked someone else and I was allowed to go home free since there was an “amnesty” in place. But you should know how I felt at that moment for doing a service to that community and hearing him say what he had said.
Then at the end of my career in Queens in a GED program I opened my mouth, kidding around with a student. Before I knew it, I was handed…

Mario D’Agostino, who passed away June 14, 2020, was a true leader in his community in the Bronx and left his mark on the neighborhood and everyone, who had the pleasure of knowing him.
Mario was an honorable man, who changed people’s lives with his beautiful mind, strong work ethic, positive outlook on life and investing in his favorite part of New York City, the Bronx.
Your should know that in Bronx County, Eric Adams, who was endorsed by the Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. and by Councilman Rev. Ruben Diaz, Sr., won the Bronx by a huge majority above all other candidates.
You should also know that Eric Adams, candidate for mayor of New York City, practically destroyed all the other candidates in the Bronx. We can therefore say that, thanks to the Bronx, Eric Adams will be the next mayor for the city of New York.
Moreover, Corey Johnson, the candidate for City Comptroller, was also endorsed by Ruben Diaz, Jr., and he too, won in the Bronx, although he lost the other counties. Michelle Caruso Cabrera, who was also candidate for City Comptroller, was endorsed by Councilmember Rev. Ruben Diaz, Sr., and the New York Hispanic Clergy Organization, and she came in 2nd place in Bronx County.
There are other candidates that we still cannot say exactly how they ranked in this election. For now, we will have to wait for those results. I will be informing you as the results come in.
I am Councilmember Rev. Rubén Díaz, Sr. and this is what you should know.

Ponce Bank will hold a re-opening ceremony showcasing its fully transformed bank branch in Riverdale, the Bronx, on Tuesday, July 27, 2021, from 12 Noon to 02:00 p.m.
The bank branch is located at 5560 Broadway Bronx, New York 10463. The Riverdale bank branch now features Ponce’s new retail banking model with new technologies that brings the future in banking directly to the community and to its customers. These advancements are part of Ponce’s system-wide upgrades incorporating their new retail banking model which was developed at the Ponce Bank test lab, which was run during the spring and summer of 2019 in its East Harlem branch.
In addition, cosmetically, the upgrades embrace an open, modern feel that celebrates the surrounding community, with walls adorned by inspiring quotes and local history. The theme, The Ponce Bank Brownstone, was developed in workshops spanning several months by Ponce team members, customers, the community-at-large, and the architects Callison/RTKL .
Carlos P. Naudon, Ponce’s President and CEO, noted that “This theme celebrates Ponce’s decades of serving as a community anchor and honors the position the Bank holds as the place where customers come to check-in, prepare and move forward into their financial future.” He continues: “At Ponce Bank, advice and opportunity empower our neighbors to envision their future, build their dreams, and celebrate all that they’ve achieved.”
Beneath the newly refined surfaces lie infrastructure improvements laying the groundwork for new technologies that bring the future of banking to customers throughout Ponce Bank’s local network and beyond. These include new smart ATMs, cash recycling machines that execute speedy and accurate transactions at open teller stations to provide a more intimate and energized transaction experience, as well as a data platform that provides free PonceFi Wi-Fi to customers and enables tablet-based services.
Executive Chairman Steven A. Tsavaris notes that, “Many banks are closing branches, especially within our communities. Ponce Bank is doubling down and turning our branches into hubs that celebrate local cultures and our…

The NYPD, the Department of Youth and Community Development, the city’s five district attorney’s offices and several city agency partners, community based organizations and foundations today announced the opening of 100 gyms across the city for free, high-quality sports programs for kids on Saturday nights.
The expansion of the “Saturday Night Lights” program is supported by a commitment of $5 million in baseline funding Mayor de Blasio included in the Fiscal Year 2022 “recovery budget.” It ensures that no indoor gyms will be closed on Saturday nights – the time that they are needed most by kids in city communities.
“This program, centered on enhancing youth development, is an exciting step forward for the NYPD and our partners in continuing to build trust and create opportunities for kids in neighborhoods throughout New York City,” said Police Commissioner Dermot Shea, who announced the expansion today at the Boys Club of New York at 321 E. 111th Street, in East Harlem.
“This has always been important – but it has never been more important than at this moment,” Commissioner Shea said.
The Saturday Night Lights program kicks off tomorrow, July 10, 2021 – and continues all year long. It features the opening of 100 sites across the city. Each Saturday, from 05:00 p.m. to 09:00 p.m., children from 11- to 18-years of age will be able to enjoy an…
