Springfield voters have approved the MGM casino plan ...UConn is conducting an investigation into how the university handled allegations of sexual abuse by one of their professors...and last week, the Eastern League All-Star Game was held at New Britain Stadium and Governor Dannel Malloy received a less-than-warm welcome.
Turns out national political observers have their eyes on Malloy, too...he’s on a Washington Post list of “governors likely to lose their seats.”
Once again this week, there’s news coming from the aftermath of the Sandy Hook shootings in December.
On Sunday, the Danbury News-Times ran a story where a “source close to the police investigation” suggests that Newtown police delayed before entering the school. It’s the latest in a series of stories trickling out as we await an official report from the state.
That's the question being asked after a report from the Danbury News-Times says 10 rounds were fired before officers entered the school. Their source says there was a delay in how quickly the officers entered the building but, "The question is whether it was significant or justified."
On the latest edition of our weekly news roundtable, The Wheelhouse we talk with the paper's editor, Tom Baden about the report.
Massachusetts elects a new senator, the Supreme Court makes landmark rulings, and the race for New Haven mayor gets smaller.
Today, the political news roundtable “The Wheelhouse” is back on a very busy day in the news.

Today, it’s another edition of “The Wheelhouse” - our weekly Wednesday wade into the news and politics. What’s on tap?
Well, your phone for one...Bill Curry and Glenn Sulmasy debate the NSA surveillance program and privacy vs. security.
We’ll clean up a few of the messes left behind after the state legislative session, including the spending cap that’s more of a spending “suggestion” - and the Office of Early Childhood that has funding, but doesn’t yet exist.
