These are chosen and curated by our editorial team and are designed for our readers to get a quick “catch-up” of important stories they may have missed as we publish many stories daily and it is easy to lose track of important events or changes in our area. We do national recaps in a separate article.

They are in no particular order of importance. These are from Sunday, April 11th, 2021, to Saturday, April 17th, 2021.
