One of the Kane Wolves’ Stars

May Day – May Day
Toni Morse, of the Kane Republican staff, checks a “May 9” date in some three inches of snow on a parked car in front of the office this morning. And the snow continued to blanket the area, which, two days ago was alive with spring.

Seagulls Make Annual Spring Visit
Two youngsters get part of a flock of more than 1,000 seagulls into the air at the Market Basket parking lot here yesterday. Each year, the number of gulls apparently increases and they may be around for day, part of a day or sometimes two days. At 5 a.m. Sunday, Patrolman Joseph Grolemund reported the parking lot solid with gulls-an overflow across the highway at the Kane Manufacturing lot. In prior years, hundreds have appeared overnight at West Kane and in town at athletic fields. No one seems to know what the migration amounts to- or why.
