Area residents appeared at an April 4 meeting of the Blaine City Council to protest a kennel license issued Feb. 7 to James and Janelle Kappes for construction of a kennel near 131st and Lexington. The residents presented a petition asking that the license be rescinded, protesting that they did not want the kennel in the area due to noise, danger to children if dogs get loose, extra traffic on the road, and loss of property value.

An April Fool’s prank was defused but not before a bomb scare caused the principal of Roosevelt junior high to dismiss classes and brought the fire department, police and bomb squad to the scene. The incident occurred April 1 at about 1 p.m. when a student reported finding what appeared to be a ticking bomb in a boy’s restroom at Roosevelt. The “bomb” was later found to be a beer can stuffed with paper, with a wire running from that to a ticking clock. A 14-year old boy admitted to the hoax and he will be referred to juvenile court.

Approximately 25 people were present at a March 14 meeting with the mayor, councilmen and engineers at Blaine City Hall to hear proposals for extending 109th from Highway 65 to Lexington Avenue. The extension would follow the present lines of 109th from Highway 65 to Flanders. Then, due largely to swampy terrain, would drop down to one of two alternate routes: it could follow a path along 105th or halfway between 109th and 105th until it reaches Lexington.
