Gamblers place their bets on sports for the first time at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn., Thursday Sept. 30, 2021. The state's two tribal casinos, Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun, were granted the necessary licenses to offer retail sports betting. Both unveiled temporary venues, with places for permanent facilities in the coming weeks, as the first step in rolling out Connecticut's new law legalizing sports and online wagering.

Governor Lamont says he’s pleased with business growth in Fairfield County, why the MTA could face painful service cuts in the future, and one local school tests out a no cell phone policy.
