A few weeks ago, as I was driving around, I passed my old elementary school. As I passed I fondly recollected some favorite memories of the place, most of them centered firmly around the one kid in our class who cried at least once a day (and I mean from Kindergarten through the sixth grade). As I was almost passed the school I realized the playground looked drastically different. They had taken down all of the old equipment and replaced it with a single piece, apparently fabricated from child-friendly material (aka plastic and plastic-coated metal). This made me sad. After all, I spent six years on the old equipment, and I survived. Granted there were accidents, bumps and bruises, splinters and brush burns. Yes we fell down, got stepped on, and banged our heads off of rusty metal from the eighties. But our class is still around, we haven’t morphed into monsters, and we aren’t dying from strange diseases. What happened to the good old playground equipment?

Anamosa High School freshman Mitch Wehling, 15, right, watches as freshman Jason Bowers, 15, puts a bar into place on a new playground at Miracle Park in Parkersburg on Friday, April 24, 2009. Volunteer crews from Home Depot and Woodward Academy joined about 40 Anamosa students to help build the playground. 250,000 dollars were gathered through community fundraising efforts after last year's tornado, and matched through a grant from Miracle Recreation Equipment Company for a new playground at Schwartz Memorial Park and to replace the playground at the newly renamed Miracle Park. Miracle Recreation will continue matching funds raised through mid-June, and there is hope that enough will be raised to also replace the playground at the elementary school.
