The Day – Company That Would Operate Norwich Ice Rink Asks For Changes In Contract | News From Southeastern Connecticut

2014 10:22AM Updated July 11. 2014 10:25AM Norwich The City Council will hold a special meeting Monday to discuss changes to the contract with Wonderland of Ice of Bridgeport before signing the agreement to turn over management of the city’s financially struggling ice rink to the firm. The council on Monday approved a 10-year lease with three 10-year extensions with the firm, which would run the rink under the name Norwich Rosegarden Ice Associates LLC. City officials said today that Wonderland asked for “substantial” changes to some terms of the contract, and the full City Council would have to approve the changes. Mayor Deberey Hinchey declined to comment on the substance of the changes, but said they “are not doom and gloom” that would negate the plans to reach an agreement with Wonderland of Ice. Wonderland owner Lisa Fedick could not be reached for comment this morning. The last-minute changes forced cancelation of a planned meeting by the Norwich Ice Rink Authority Thursday to approve and sign the contract. The City Council will meet at 7 p.m. Monday to discuss the changes in executive session before possibly voting on the revisions in open session. “We want to make sure the council is aware of that,” Hinchey said of the changes.

Malloy, Foley Trade Opening-debate Barbs – Darien News

“How about somebody with a protective order against them?” Malloy continued. “Do you want to go over the whole bill?” Foley asked, stressing that he used the media to convey his opinions to the governor after the Dec.14, 2012, Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. “To say I’m not telling the truth is ridiculous.” Malloy also hammered Foley, the losing 2010 gubernatorial candidate, on his business experience taking over a Georgia textile company in 1985, loading it with debt, then selling it off in 1996. Foley said that was old news, and he would rather talk about the state of Connecticut’s current problems.

Gambling Charges Against Lebanon Legion Post Dismissed | New Hampshire Crime

In a filing at Grafton County Superior Court, Saffo said her office couldn’t prove its case against Guyer-Carignan Post 22. In the filing, she appeared to agree with the post’s financial officer Bill Wilson who said in an interview earlier this year he believed the post was operating within the law in February when administrators organized and ran raffles “used to benefit charity.” “The activities at issue in this case were not done in accordance with the law,” Saffo wrote. “However, post indictment, evidence of the efforts of the … American Legion to ensure that they were following the law came to light.” Attorney George Ostler of Norwich, Vt., who represents the Legion post, said Saturday he was “really happy for the Legion.” Calling the post’s members and administrators “incredibly stand-up guys,” who had no intention of breaking the law, Ostler said they worked hard following a similar incident in 2010 to make sure all their gaming activities were conducted within New Hampshire law. He said that effort included having a 34-page document prepared that outlined their plans and getting approval by both the New Hampshire State Liquor Commission and the Lebanon Police Department for running games of chance in the future. Ostler said, however, that the liquor commission somehow did not have a copy of that document this year prior to its agents’ Feb. 1 gambling raid on the post. In April, a Grafton County Superior Court grand jury indicted the post on two Class B felony counts for gambling, and a charge called “entertainment and entertainers.” The latter charge refers to gambling at an establishment that’s licensed to sell “alcohol and/or liquor,” according to the indictment.
