5 Things To Know Wednesday

The FBI weighs in on Hillary Clinton's emails, some bad news for HealthyCT but some good news for Hartford moviegoers in today's Five Things To Know. 


1. Clinton Emails

FBI Director James Comey said he would not be recommending criminal charges against Hillary Clinton's handling of emails, but still levied harsh criticism against the former secretary of state. He said she was "extremely careless" in her handling of emails. 

2. HealthyCT

Connecticut's nonprofit health insurer on the exchange was placed under an order of supervision Monday after the state Department of Insurance found it is in "hazardous financial standing." The result? About 13,000 customers will have to switch plans for next year. 

3. Dunkin' Donuts Park

When we last checked in on the Dunkin' Donuts Park saga, the developers were offering to finish the construction themselves - and pay for it. Mayor Bronin responded Tuesday, calling the offer "posturing."

4. Sandy Hook Lawsuit

As the lawsuit brought by families of Sandy Hook shooting victims against Remington moves forward, the gun maker is seeking to keep company materials secret. Attorneys say that the disclosure of such details would put the business at a competitive disadvantage. 

5. Movies in The Park

An early casualty of city budget cuts, free movies in some Hartford parks are back for the summer. Thanks to an assist from Bear's Smokehouse, there will be screenings on three Friday nights, July 22, Aug. 12 and 26 in Riverfront Park. The lineup will be announced shortly.
