And They’re Off!

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy launched his campaign for a second term as Connecticut’s governor Thursday making several stops throughout the state. Late in the day, he visited several businesses in the heart of New Britain’s Polish community, sampling several Polish delicacies.  “But how do you stay so slim?” asked the proprietor of one establishment, as Malloy tasted some pierogi.  “By running every day,” he said.

Without Water

For some New London’s water main break is an inconvenience. They have water. But for those living at the New London Housing Authority high rise on Colman Street they’ll make due until water is restored.

Several cases of bottled water are delivered to the New London Housing authority highrise on Colman Street by staff from the American Red Cross after residents lost water service Thursday. A water main break in New London's Bates Woods Park nearby caused lowered water pressure for some and interrupted service for others.
