FULLERTON -- Plans for a $5.3 million indoor ice rink in the eastern part of the county have fallen through.

A proposal for the rink, to be built on 7.75 acres on Rossville Boulevard in the Fullerton area, was approved in April by a panel of representatives from county agencies. But a deal to purchase the property could not be completed because of inadequate financing, investors said yesterday.

Frank Lynch, president of Chesapeake Ice Partners, which would have operated the rink, said his group is exploring financing strategies in hopes of finding a new site in the area for the rink.

Pub owners are fined $500 for serving underage cadets


WOODLAWN -- The owners of Dano's Pub in the 1600 block of N. Rolling Road have been fined $500 by the county liquor board for serving underage, undercover county police cadets twice this year.

Co-owner Melody Lynn Tufano told board members yesterday that her bartender thought the 19-year-old cadet was 25 when he ordered beer Aug. 14 and did not ask him for identification. In June, the board levied a $200 fine against the pub after a cadet visit, and a letter was sent in July from the board warning that another police visit was likely. Tufano said her employees now ask every patron for identification, and she employs a door monitor on busy nights.
