It was a week dominated by politics as Mitt Romney flexed his debating muscles in the first presidential debate Wednesday night.

Also, there were dueling endorsements from key voices in the Massachusetts race for the U.S. Senate. Former Republican Massachusetts Gov. William Weld endorsed Sen. Scott Brown Friday, while Brown's Democratic challenger, Elizabeth Warren, campaigned with Caroline Kennedy.

Plus, the outbreak of meningitis across the nation leads to precautionary measures at the Framingham pharmacy that concocted the drug in question.

Also, discussion surrounding school assignment plans for the Boston Public Schools continues as a sixth potential plan is proposed.

And the Red Sox say goodbye to Bobby Valentine.

We'll cover these stories and more in Radio Boston's week in review.
