    Rodney Lamontagne cleans grease from the fryolator hood vent system at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee in Lewiston Thursday morning before power washing it. Since the scheduled circus was canceled, he and his parents, who have worked at the arena for decades, have been busy preparing for the new owner's plans. Among those plans are to remove the bleachers that were installed on the back walls. They will install a rail all the way around the back row of wood seats to allow patrons to walk around the venue like "back in the old days." The city recently approved the sale of the facility to the owner of the Maine Nordiques.
