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 Geoff Spillane, a reporter at The Cape Cod Times; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Nelson Sigelman, editor of the Martha's Vineyard Times; and Jim DeArruda of the New Bedford Standard Times.

Among the stories they discuss this week: A Sandwich fish market owner who pleaded guilty to receiving stolen oysters last year is back on the town Planning Board after a write-in campaign; a Cape Cod bus driver is arrested and charged with a second DWI, but bus company won't say if having a previous DWI conviction precludes someone from driving their school buses; a grand jury indicts a Hyannis physician; an election in the West Barnstable Fire District is challenged in court; and the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe signs an agreement with the state to consult on transportation projects that could impact traditional Wampanoag burial grounds or artifacts.
