* Editor's Note: I capture news accounts via Google News alerts as well as with various keyword searches performed throughout the week, however, some stories defy search engine discovery until days or weeks after they first appeared in local media. That's why the dates on certain news links may stretch back several weeks. Better late than never, I figure, although I typically draw the line at about a month in each issue of the 'roundup.
