The owner of Maritime Pet Kennel has withdrawn his request to open a kennel on U.S. 19 just north of Stonehedge on the Hill mobile home park. Park residents packed a City Commission workshop Oct. 28 to oppose William Conway's request to board dogs at the facility he is renovating. Conway said Thursday that he still plans to open an obedience school at 39930 U.S. 19, which the city's zoning allows. He has added double-pane windows and thicker walls to keep sound inside. "We just wanted to go ahead without the distractions and focus on the training," he said.
