Globe West's reporters have blanketed the region this week, uncovering a wide variety of interesting stories, including:

Correspondent Nadia Solomon's report about how, after five years of negotiations, police officers in the neighboring towns of Wellesley and Dover will be able to make arrests and exercise authority in both communities;

Another story by Noonan about how a lone protester is raising questions about a controversial traveling exhibition of posed cadavers that has set up shop in a former CompUSA store in Framingham, saying that the exhibit "is an affront to the dead and to the living," and;

Correspondent Alexandra Perloe's story about a group of construction workers from Wayland who have been building houses in Waveland, Miss, where 95 percent of the homes were destroyed two years ago by Hurricane Katrina.
