Also, watch out for metal bits in your Frosted Mini-Wheats, and a leadership change at Cambridge Savings Bank.

1) Somerville's National Merit Scholar 
Ruth Grossman, a senior at Somerville High School, has been named a Commended Student in the National Merit Scholarship Program, according to an announcement from Somerville Public Schools.

2) Union Square on WGBH's "Neighborhood Kitchens"
WGBH's "Neighborhood Kitchens" show, which showcases ethnic restaurants in New England, came to Union Square in a recent episode. The episode focused on Dosa Temple, and it also went on a short tour of Union Square. You can watch it here.

3) Frosted Mini Wheats recall
If you eat Frosted Mini-Wheats for breakfast (or for lunch or dinner), you should know there's been a recall due to possible metal fragments in the cereal. Not all boxes are recalled. Learn more here.

4) Cambridge Savings Bank head steps down
