ENFIELD -- As Gov. M. Jodi Rell walked through the doors of Hazardville Memorial School in Enfield Thursday, several students mistakenly said "here comes the government."
Rell just smiled. She was at the school to announce $5 million in funding for fiber optic wiring for 66 school districts and educational institutions across the state. The State Bond Commission is expected to make the money available at its Oct. 6 meeting, Rell said.
