    Coon Rapids has gone seriously down hill in the past 10 years. Alot of the riff raff from North Minneapolis and Brooklyn Park have moved in.

    I am very glad I don’t live there any longer. It use to be a diresable place to live. The schools are nothing to brag about either.

    I think you have the name of the school wrong. It was named after a friend of mine

    Teens/kids who have fond memories of going to playgrounds with their mom, dad, and or grandparents are less likely to set playgrounds on fire.

    Love your children; hug them and play with them. Bored children find trouble, keep them involved and busy with the positive things in life! This is how we make a better and safer world, it all begins with us! Peace!

    Sam you sound dumb as your name implies you chimp. I live in Edina so before you say I’m from North Minneapolis. NO. You are just passing judgement and you have no idea who the arsonist was. So please keep your racist bigoted ideas to yourself. Yes there are bad people in North Minneapolis, but there are more good people black and white who live there. There are bad people in every place in the world. Remember the Cabin destructions this past summer? Who did it? KIDS. They got caught. so before you pass assumptions as to who this arsonist was, consider the fact that we don’t know if they are white, black, fat, skinny, or if they are kids or adults. Oh forget it you are too stupid to understand common reasong or logic
