Globe West's reporters have roamed the region and have reported back with a full menu of interesting stories this week, including:

Correspondent Alex Oster's report on how the recent dry spell could affect the fall leaf-peeping season and the annual tourism dollars it brings in;

Bureau chief Erica Noonan's stony on how regional planners and politicians think they can finally get Route 9 -- one of the state's busiest and and most congested regional economic corridors -- onto the state's transportation priority list;

Staff writer Stephanie Siek's report on how next month's city government ballot in Waltham is a mix of familiar faces from past races and first-time candidates hoping that voters are ready to see a transfusion of new blood, and;

Correspondent Alexandra Perloe's story about how administrators at Franklin High School have pooled together freshmen into smaller -- and hopefully tight-knit -- teams to help keep students from dropping out.
