Globe West's reporters and correspondents have journeyed across the region to bring you an exciting itinerary of stories and reports in today's edition, including:
Bureau Chief Erica Noonan's story about how fast-growing Orthodox Jewish community that has battled the city for nearly five years scored a major victory last week, defeating the last municipal obstacle to building a 12,000-square-foot synagogue in a residential neighborhood in Newton Highlands;
Correspondent John Dyer's report on how, in a counterintuitive measure practiced throughout Massachusetts, conservation workers are hacking and slashing undeveloped areas to add open fields that will create favorable habitats for deer, songbirds, and other animals;
Correspondent Calvin Hennick's story about how Holliston officials, stunned last month when the lowest bid for a police station came in about $800,000 over the town's budget, plan to slash about $1 million off the project and hope to begin construction in the spring, and;
Correspondent Christina Pazzanese's report about about several large properties in Watertown -- including a nearly 12-acre swath of land at Greenough Boulevard and Arsenal Street that was once used to burn depleted uranium from a Watertown Arsenal nuclear reactor -- that are undergoing close scrutiny to determine how badly contaminated they are and who is responsible for cleaning them up.
