Thanks to MetroNews Source for the following.
- The son of a missing couple is due in court today. Kyle Navin was arrested September 8 on a federal gun charge. Officials also allegedly found hypodermic needles and prescription bottles in his Bridgeport home. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison. Navin has also been a person of interest in the disappearance of Jeffrey and Jeannette Navin who were last seen August 4.
- Good news. Connecticut's unemployment rate is at 5.3 percent, which is the lowest it has been in seven years. The unemployment percentage rate is down more than one whole point since this time last year. The last time the unemployment rate was lower than it is right now was back in 2008.
- Shoppers rejoice. A planned Outlet Shoppes at Rentschler Field appears about to happen. The East Hartford Planning and Zoning Commission approved the plans yesterday. Voters will have the final say on Election Day but Horizon Group Properties says it's preparing for a groundbreaking ceremony in a few weeks.
- You can't mess with the Batmobile.The exact phrase from a judge in San Francisco is, "Holy copyright law, Batman!" A ruling in the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decided that the Batmobile will receive copyright protection. It all started when DC Comics sued a man in 2011 because he was making replicas of the Batmobile and selling them for profit.
