A large window at Parker Student Union was broken on March 8 after a few students were rough-housing in front of the cafeteria near a Hutchinson News newspaper rack.

One of the students fell against the newsstand, knocking it backwards into the window.

The heavy window shattered from top to bottom.

Rattled by the mag-nitude of the event, the young men involved took off running, but they were identified from security camera video and later received reprimands from a school official.

The window was boarded up and the news stand was moved to a spot next to a brick wall.

A few days later, a crew removed the plywood and installed a new plate glass window in the frame.
