Residents of the Suffolk County village of Islandia are up in arms over plans to build a casino at the Islandia Marriott hotel in the village.

The bankrupt Suffolk OTB is trying to get its plan for a Video Lottery Terminal (VLT) casino in Medford finalized before a bankruptcy court hearing in April. However, community opposition is making that difficult.

The airport authority is joining a growing list of suitors interested in hosting a casino that the operators of Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun want to open somewhere in northern Connecticut.
