Of course, the big news this past week was the death of Osama bin Laden.
Patch covered the wild celebrations in College Park after it was announced that the terrorist had been killed by U.S. Navy SEALS. We also heard from students at local schools, who shared their thoughts on bin Laden’s death, 10 years after the 9/11 attacks on New York City, the Pentagon and Pennsylvania.
Patch photographer Chris Suspect snapped scenes from the evening, while writer Karl Herchenroeder got Tartaro’s initial reaction to his win. On Thursday Patch posted the names and number of write-in votes for the mayor’s race.
In other news this week:
- Patch talked with City Administrator Gregory Rose about the state of the city’s finances;
- Riverdale Park-University Park Patch editor Sonia Dasgupta took some photographs of dogs at Patch’s Scrappy Hour at Heurich Park;
- Videographer Matt Cruz covered an event where local and regional officials worked to put out fires; and
