News Roundup: Towns Grit Teeth at Cape Tech Costs, Brewster Blocks Herbicide


WCAI News Director Steve Junker hosts a roundup of some of the top local and regional news of the week. His guests include Patrick Cassidy of the Cape Cod Times; Sara Brown of the Vineyard Gazette; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Josh Balling of the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror; Ann Wood of the Provincetown Banner; Tao Woolfe of the Sandwich Enterprise; and George Brennan of the Martha's Vineyard Times.

Among the stories we talk about: Cape Towns are grappling with the cost of a proposed Regional Technical High School; Brewster wins a victory in its effort to stop a utility company spraying herbicide; the Codfather is sentenced in New Bedford; Hyannis holds an annual overdose vigil; Wampanoag youth make a music video to combat opiod epidemic; a bill linked to group homes is proposed at the State House; showdown averted over beach rules in Falmouth; and Provincetown remembers Julian Popko, whose sculpture brightened the town.
