A group of students from Kent's Hill School visited Portland on Martin Luther Ki
A group of students from Kent's Hill School visited Portland on Martin Luther King Day to attend the noontime wreath-laying ceremony in Monument Square. Six of the students went into the Surplus Store to warm up and do some shopping, and owner Larry Rose allegedly told two black students to leave the store. Victoria Hershey of the Portland Bias Crime Task Force will discuss the incident February 7. Sgt. Vern Malloch of the Portland Police Department said that refusal of service isn't a violation of state law, but it could be a federal civil rights violation.
