A foggy inlet.
S Junker
Mid-winter brings moody atmosphere to the coast

This week: The governor is lifting the mask mandate for students: now schools face a difficult decision. And state legislators want a bill to prohibit dumping radioactive water into Cape Cod Bay – but it's not that easy. And New England lobster may be put on a seafood red list.

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

This week's guests include CAI's Jennette Barnes and Sam Houghton; George Brennan of the Martha's Vineyard Times; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; K.C. Myers of the Provincetown Independent; Cindy McCormick of the Cape Cod Times; Jason Graziadei of Nantucket Current; CAI's Patrick Flanary and Mike Deehan with news from the Statehouse; and CAI's Eve Zuckoff.
