WCAI News Director Sean Corcoran and local journalists review the top regional news stories of the week. Sean's guests this week include Geoff Spillane, a reporter at The Cape Cod Times; Cape Cod Chronicle Editor Tim Wood; Nelson Sigelman, editor of the Martha's Vineyard Times; Sally Rose, editor of the Provincetown Banner; and New Bedford Standard-Times Editorial Page Editor Jim DeArruda.

Among the stories discussed this week: a state Appeals Court rules that the town of Falmouth should have gone through a special permitting process before erecting a wind turbine in town; icy waterways are causing problems for ferries, while the Coast Guard brings in ice breaking ships; residents weigh in on safety issues on Route 6 between Eastham and Provincetown; a Bourne police officer injured in a shooting three weeks ago meets with the media about his recovery; and a plan to address water quality issues on Cape Cod is moving forward.
