N. London chickens out
NEW LONDON -- New London Mayor Bill Gossman will not be allowed to keep five laying hens in a backyard chicken coop.

Since the mayor, who would typically break a tie vote, was the one requesting the permit and stepped away from the council table during the hearing, the motion to grant the permit died.
