News Roundup: First Vax Clinics for 75+; Barnstable Schools Getting New Mascot

Seniors 75-and-older start baring their shoulders as Phase Two of the vaccination rollout gets underway. “Please have patience” – that was the message from Cape officials to 13-thousand people who joined a single phone call. And the Barnstable School District is officially on the hunt for a new mascot.

We have those stories and more on the local news roundup, as CAI News Director Steve Junker speaks with some of the region’s leading journalists.

  This week's guests include CAI's Jennette Barnes, Eve Zuckoff, and Sam Houghton; Noah Asimow of the Vineyard Gazette; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Ed Miller of the Provincetown Independent; George Brennan from the Martha's Vineyard Times; and CAI's Mike Deehan at the Statehouse.

Steve is Managing Editor of News. He came to WCAI in 2007. He also hosts the weekly News Roundup on Friday mornings, and produces The Fishing News and Weekend Outlook.
