Here's what made news this week:

In Norwalk, an underground explosion erupted on Main St. sending man hole covers flying near a local bakery -- the owner of Muro's New York Bakery says their windows shattered and customers were knocked down to the ground.  Norwalk police say there were two minor injuries treated at the scene and fortunately, no one was seriously hurt.

"A couple of guys were knocked down off the tables on to the floor, everybody scrambled. Glass was flying all over the place and the car outside jumped up about 4 feet," said Dominic Muro, owner of Muro's New York Bakery.  

For the 15th year in a row, the Lung Association gave Fairfield County an F for its high o-zone concentration.  A Fairfield University environmental studies director says cars and trucks are the biggest threats to our air quality.  And with the county's population growing -- 2.5 percent between 2010 and 2013 -- he says it's a hard issue to tackle.

"Not because each individual automobile is getting that much worse or not getting that much better in terms of how much pollutant their emitting, but because we are continuing to grow," said  James Biardi, the director of environmental studies at Fairfield University.

Stamford's police force gained three new sergeants this week.  Brett Stoebel, Kelly Connelly and William Brevard have worked with the department for years and say they're looking forward to their new roles, doing what they love.
