    As of 1:30 this afternoon, there is not even one kid playing in the filled wading pool at Hiawatha Park. This almost never happens, and I would urge any WS parent with young children to get over there and give their kids the rare feeling that a big wading pool is all or mostly theirs on a clear summer day.
