The former storage room of the John Ehlen Park is being converted into an open shelter, but it has been hit by vandals twice in recent weeks.


Wadena Public Works Director Ron Bucholz said hopefully it was just kids being stupid. He said the inside of the shelter was tagged with pictures and "nasty words" over the weekend, and about a week before then, it was tagged with an 8-ball symbol.
