Voters are real ‘gems’ for taking away pool


I want to thank all of those who voted against the park/pool levy.

Thank you for taking away the only place that many of our mobility-challenged seniors and veterans had to exercise because of the buoying effect of water.

And thank you for taking away the only place any of us have to take our children and grandchildren for a nice fun swim.

Ya’ll are real gems.
