In case you missed out this week, here's a round up of Norwood Patch's top headlines.

In the courts this week, the Norwood man accused in several violent robberies from 2009 pleaded guilty to eight counts of information of armed bank robbery on Monday in U.S. District Court, while the president of Norwood-based Systemic Research Inc. pleaded guilty to defrauding the National Science Foundation. In county court, a former Norwood resident was sentenced to five years in jail for throwing Molotov cocktails into several Walpole buildings in 2005.
Three Norwood Hospital doctors were chosen for Boston Magazine's 2010 'Top Docs' list, the second year in a row these three have received the honor. The hospital was also named to the Leapfrog Group's 2010 list of 'Top Hospitals.'
The Ecumenical Food Pantry received a $750 donation from the Neponset Valley Sunset Rotary Club to help with the holiday season. The Board of Selectmen heard the status of two major Department of Public Works projects and decided to urge the Town Meeting members to postpone the special town meeting - originally scheduled for Monday night - due to the Patriots playing the Jets in Monday night football.
