Public Services News Roundup

Today starts a little experiment.

Every Thursday from now on, I'll post a week's worth of links to public services-related articles from local media. And I'll ask all you neighbors and readers to chip in. What'd I miss? What'd the papers miss? What's your opinion?

CoWNA's Public Services Committee is concerned with education, public safety, sanitation, transportation and utilities -- that's what these articles are concerned with, too.

Here's this week's news:
