I'd suggest personalizing your Google News pages. You can pick your own search term to substitute for "World", "U.S." "Sports," "Science," etc..Whatever your interest, Google's custom news feeds give you access to a much broader array of sources on topics that concern you than whatever the daily newspaper deems fit to print. For folks with particularized information needs like Grits, it's a Godsend.
First you have to create a Google account; if you use gmail you already have one. Then go to the Google News page and on the top right it should have a link to "Personalize" your page. The directions are pretty self explanatory, and it picks up your search terms for all Google News sources. My search terms change over time and depending on current interests, but the ones I'm using right now are listed below:
BTW, feel free to suggest additional criminal justice search terms you think Grits should monitor in the comments.
