Sean Corcoran, WCAI's news director, hosts a roundup of local and regional news stories. Joining Sean this week is Susan Moeller, news editor at The Cape Cod Times and Cape Cod Online; Tim Wood, editor of The Cape Cod Chronicle; Joshua Balling, assistant editor of The Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror; Sally Rose of the Provincetown Banner; Jim DeArruda of the New Bedford Standard Times; and Geoff Spillane, a reporter at The Mashpee Enterprise.

Among the stories the journalists discuss: Provincetown voters ban plastic shopping bags; the Sandwich Zoning Board of Appeals backs a proposal for a zip line and adventure area at Heritage Museums and Gardens; a new report identifies some disturbing trends on Cape Cod, including increasing overdose rates, more Hepatitis C diagnosis, and concerns about the difficulty finding primary care physicians; the state warns of a possible drought in the region; and area schools are looking at later start times for high schoolers.
