S Junker

WCAI News Director Steve Junker hosts a roundup of some of the top local and regional news of the week, including: an off-Cape developer is behind an effort to weaken the Cape Cod Commission; health authorities warn that the threat from EEE-infected mosquitoes isn’t over yet; and Cape residents reflect on the sudden loss of Jim Crocker of Osterville.

This week's guests are Gwenn Friss of the Cape Cod Times; WCAI's Sarah Mizes-Tan; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Josh Balling of the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror; K.C. Myers of the Provincetown Independent; George Brennan of the Martha's Vineyard Times; and WCAI's Kathryn Eident and Mike Deehan. 

Other stories we talk about include: Eversource criticized for continued herbicide use; Cape residents mourn the passing of James Crocker; a first-in-the-nation offshore wind training platform is opened in Buzzard's Bay; Harwich Elementary to replace its beloved playground; Nantucket volunteers rescue storm-blown scallops; the Outer Cape struggles to cope with fewer grocery options; and a land deal falls through on MV.
