WCAI News Director Steve Junker hosts a roundup of some of the week's top local and regional news, including: homeowners in Barnstable want more regulations on short-term rentals; Carlos Rafael's fishing fleet and permits will stay in New Bedford; latest estimates say the new Woods Hole terminal project will cost the Steamship Authority almost $93 million; and Massachusetts gets a chance to try early voting for a presidential primary, for the first time ever.

This week's guests are Ethan Genter of the Cape Cod Times; Louisa Hufstader of the Vineyard Gazette; Josh Balling of the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror; K.C. Myers of the Provincetown Independent; Brian Dowd of the Martha's Vineyard Times; and WCAI's Mike Deehan and Eve Zuckoff.
