Local hopscotch course grows to epic proportions
Several friends along East First Street in New Richmond were about the only people who were sad to see it rain earlier this week.
Madeline Melby, Lydia Melby, Elizabeth Lee and Tranae Hanvelt saw some of their hopscotch squares wash away with the precipitation.
But this wasn't your ordinary hopscotch playing field. The squares numbered more than 1,500 on Monday afternoon and stretched from the Melby driveway, west on East Fourth Street and south on South Starr Avenue.
