A wrap-up of the week on Canton Patch.
It's been an exciting week around Canton. A coyote was spotted, Santa Claus stopped by twice to visit the kids and Blue Hills played some major football in Saturday's Superbowl. Canton Patch photographer Ken Winokur brought us an up close (maybe too close) look at an eastern coyote that decided to visit his condo complex on the Canton/Stoughton line on Wednesday. The Board of Selectmen honored members of the Canton Fire and Police Departments on Tuesday, and one retired Canton Police Officer, Charlie McGrath, who recently died, was remembered by the department.

"He was sniffing around near sombody's house," the photographer said. "He was big, healthy and fluffy and looked well fed." According to …
