UFOs over Connecticut?

The Associated Press reports here on two sightings of a strange thing, the size of a whale, falling out of the sky in northwestern Connecticut.


The Republican-American of Waterbury reports ( http://bit.ly/HEwTYZ ) that a person driving in Litchfield at about 2 a.m. Tuesday reported that a green, glowing object the size of a whale fell from the sky and crashed into Bantam Lake. Officials say that at about the same time, a state trooper 10 miles away in Warren called dispatchers to report that something fell out of the sky and landed near Bantam or Morris.

Morris fighters made several passes up and down the lake in a boat looking for a possible plane crash, but didn't find any debris.

Authorities called off the search, leaving the mystery unsolved.

Speaking of falling, Brian Hallenbeck reports here that revenues at the Connecticut casinos are down again, despite a lot of Massachusetts money still pouring in.


According to the report, Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun experienced their fifth consecutive year-over-year declines in gross gaming revenues, with Foxwoods' total falling 1.7 percent and Mohegan Sun's 1 percent. The casinos' gaming revenues "appear to be on the verge of stabilizing in 2012," the report says.

So a recovery might be at hand, and maybe it will last until the Massachusetts casinos open.
