Numerous flights canceled at Bradley Airport


Numerous flights canceled at Bradley

WINDSOR LOCKS — More than two dozen flights have been canceled at Connecticut’s Bradley International Airport because of the snow and subzero temperatures hampering travel in the Midwest.

Travelers at Bradley on Monday morning discovered that many flights were canceled, including several to Chicago, Cleveland, Cincinnati and Washington, D.C.

Arctic air was moving into a big chunk of the Midwest following a storm that dumped more than a foot of snow and brought high winds. Wind chills were expected to be as low as the minus 50s and 60s in the Midwest.

More than 1,000 flights were canceled Sunday at airports throughout the Midwest.

Man faces sentencing in Donovan case

NEW HAVEN — A Middlebury man who owned two roll-your-own tobacco shops in Waterbury is facing sentencing for his role in a campaign financing plot surrounding former state House Speaker Chris Donovan’s failed congressional campaign in 2012.

Paul Rogers is scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday in federal court in New Haven. He pleaded guilty a year ago to devising a scheme to bribe a public official and conspiring to make false statements to the Federal Election Commission and impede the agency’s enforcement of federal campaign finance laws.

Prosecutors say Rogers and others schemed to hide the source of $27,500 in contributions to Donovan’s campaign in hopes of trying to block state legislation that would be harmful to the roll-your-own tobacco industry.

Donovan was not charged and denied wrongdoing.
