If you ask any cop in any city or town what their least favorite part of the job is, you will most likely get "jump into a fight between two brothers" in the top five answers.
On today's episode: Superintendent of Schools Dr. Mary Czajkowski comments on a recently released school safety report, Town Manager Tom Lynch is taking the Senior Managers Meeting on the road to Osterville this week, and work is underway at the Bay Street Boat Ramp.

What was that, you say?
Town Council meets tonight, Hyannis West Elementary School gets the green light to continue it’s community garden, and a state grant will help fund a day shelter for the homeless.
