A machine gun range may be coming to Joint Base Cape Cod, requiring 170 acres of clear-cutting. A new coalition is pushing offshore wind development for New England. And the Ag Fair this year on Martha's Vineyard was virtual – but there were blue ribbon winners just the same.

We have those stories and more on the local news roundup, as WCAI News Director Steve Junker speaks with some of the region’s leading journalists.

This week's guests include WCAI's Jennette Barnes and Eve Zuckoff; Brian Dowd from the Martha's Vineyard Times; Tim Wood from the Cape Cod Chronicle; Ed Miller of the Provincetown Independent; Josh Balling of the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror; Noah Asimow of the Vineyard Gazette; and WCAI's Mike Deehan at the Statehouse.
