      NEW LONDON - The New London school district is accepting donations in the wake of vandalism that damaged a playground used by early childhood students.

      The playground, which is located outside the high school building, was damaged in a fire early Tuesday morning. Jesse McLamarrah, 19, has been charged with setting the fire. He is also accused of starting a fire at a downtown bar earlier in the morning.
