News Roundup: Many schools drop mask requirements; local reaction to Ukraine invasion

The Woods Hole commercial fishing pier is mighty quiet this time of year.

This week: School without masks: it’s happening in some districts across the region for the first time in two years. And we’ve got local reaction to the invasion of Ukraine. Also, Provincetown may soon have a very big battery to help it weather power outages.

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, Sam Houghton, and Eve Zuckoff; George Brennan of the Martha's Vineyard Times; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Mary Ann Bragg of the Provincetown Banner; Anastasia Lennon of the New Bedford Light; Louisa Hufstader of the Vineyard Gazette; and CAI's Patrick Flanary and Mike Deehan talk news from the Statehouse.
