BLAINE, Wash. (AP) - The city of Blaine is still plain old Blaine.

Voters rejected a proposal to change the name to Blaine Harbor.

The Bellingham Herald reports (https://is.gd/hdurbs ) it’s the second time since 2000 residents have rejected the idea.

Supporters thought drawing attention to the border town’s water would attract more visitors as they crossed to and from Canada.
