Fearing they would lose a lawsuit, county commissioners Thursday dismissed the concerns of retirees who believe their Summer Chase neighborhood may be overwhelmed by adrenaline- pumped hockey players. Commissioners agreed to al low Community Hockey to keep the doors open until midnight on weekdays and until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays at its planned Lake Worth Road com plex.
