Thanks Ben. Kudos to Paul McFedries. My only excuse is that I did
check WordSpy, but I checked it on September 10. There was an article
on CNET on the 10th titled "Google Fiber casts wide net in Kansas
City" that included "fiberhoods", so I looked around for other
instances at that time. Apparently, WordSpy posted it on  the 11th
before I did.
