A Dick­ens Qual­ity De­mo­li­tion, LLC, hy­draulic ex­ca­va­tor (in photo at right) sits idle Mon­day near the “tin gym” at Kofa High School, which is in the process of be­ing razed. The gym, which used to house the Kings’ wrestling room, weight room and in­door prac­tice space, has been re­placed by a new prac­tice gym, con­structed on the cam­pus by McCarthy Build­ing Com­pa­nies, Inc. Dick­ens Qual­ity De­mo­li­tion, LLC, is out of Phoenix. When com­pletely de­mol­ished and the rub­ble re­moved, the space once oc­cu­pied by the tin gym will be land­scaped. Twisted steel beams — and an ex­er­cise rope — that were all once part of the “tin gym” at Kofa High School lie with other rub­ble (bot­tom left) as the prac­tice gym is be­ing de­mol­ished. A short dis­tance from where the old “tim gym” is be­ing de­mol­ished, bas­ket­ball play­ers prac­tice in­side Kofa High School’s new prac­tice gym (bot­tom right), con­structed by McCarthy Build­ing Com­pa­nies, Inc.
