Program Description

Fluff Fight State Sen. Jarrett Barrios was irritated that his son was served a Fluffernutter at lunch at his Cambridge school. So he announced that he would file an amendment restricting schools to serving Fluff only once a week. Rep. Kathi-Anne Reinstein says she will file rival legislation to make the Fluffernutter the official state sandwich.

Guests: John DePetro, Radio host, WRKO-AM; Beth Teitell, Columnist, Boston Herald; Robin Wright Parker, Parent of two children

Carol Stocker Gardening guru Carol Stocker joins us to talk about container gardens, which, as the name implies, are gardens grown in containers. They're a great and easy way to add color to your patio or backyard. Guests: Carol Stocker, New England Gardening Almanac

Business Beat: Shipping We take a look at the business of the Port of Boston. Massport's Conley Terminal is the main hub for container cargo, where some 600 containers a day are handled. We also spend a day with Boston Towing and Transportation, which handles 80% of the harbor's tugboat business. Guests: (Stand Alone)
