"City" piece on a 33-year-old after-dark curfew law that Portland police have begun enforcing in the neighborhood surrounding Kennedy Park, a Portland Housing Authority property at the foot of city's Munjoy Hill, apparently in response to a racially motivated brawl on Sept. 22. According to city attorney Gary Wood, officers are operating within the law, which prohibits children under age 15 from being on area streets after 9 p.m. unless accompanied by an adult. Ryan Nadeau, 14, a freshman at Portland High School, said about 20 people were involved in the fracas, which erupted after a Sudanese teen was allegedly cheated by a white youth during a marijuana deal.
