WCAI News Director Sean Corcoran and local journalists review the top local and regional news stories of the week. Sean's guests this week include Anne Brennan, an editor at The Cape Cod Times; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Nelson Sigelman, editor of the Martha's Vineyard Times; and Josh Balling of the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror.

Among the stories they discuss this week: Barnstable deals with two key drinking water wells that are contaminated; a former member of the Mashpee School Committee, who resigned last year after she admitted striking a student with a book in frustration, is back on the ballot for another term; two protestors at the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station are arrested for trespassing; the long-awaited and controversial aerial park at the Heritage Museum and Gardens is set to open this weekend; there's controversy in Harwich about the town's efforts to buy a piece of land for potential wastewater disposal; and a local meeting about Boston's 2024 Olympics bid demonstrates that many Cape Cod residents support the effort.
