WCAI'S Local News Roundup: Repairs to Pilgrim Nuclear Plant; Can Rte. 6 be fixed?; No Pirate Museum
WCAI News Director Sean Corcoran discusses the region's top news stories of the week with print and digital media journalists. Joining Sean this week are Patrick Cassidy of the Cape Cod Times; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Geoff Spillane of the Mashpee Enterprise; Jim DeArruda of the New Bedford Standard Times; and Nelson Siegelman of the Martha's Vineyard Times.
The journalists discuss more than 20 stories, including changes to the laws that govern what police reports can be made public when it comes to domestic abuse; health officials are investigating whether untreated water at a local inflatable water park could be responsible for reported skin infections in children; a teacher accused of abusing special education students in Barnstable has resigned and investigations continue; and a hotel swimming pool in Yarmouth may have violated town rules when two young swimmers were found nearly drowned there.
