Kids take fort building to a new level at Prairie Creek Community School near Northfield. They've done it for more than 25 years, as this photographer can attest. At recess, they race to their wooded "village" along the creek and get about their business. "Sticks for sale, two corncobs," a group of girls chanted recently by the woods' "community center." I was among the first generation to buy sticks using the currency of corncobs to build a wooded dream house. Decades later, the fort community still lives by its rules, mainly: 1) Everyone's included, and 2) No running with sticks.
