Playground Opens at Utah School
A new playground at a deaf school in Salt Lake City is now cleaned and ready to use. It's debut was spoiled last week when vandals wrote graffiti all over the special equipment. The Jean Massieu School of the Deaf hasn't had a playground in a 10 years. Then students and parents raised $55,000. State lawmakers came up with the remaining $100,000 needed to build the playground. When the vandalism was discovered, volunteers showed up to pressure wash and scrub the equipment - which includes materials especially chosen not to generate static electricity and interfere with cochlear implants.
