Local dogs take a dip

Dog owners brought their pets to the Lawrence Public Pool to cool off Monday, August 22, 2011. It was the last day of the summer that the pool was open.

Ridiculous that they've closed the pool already. When I worked there the pool was always open through Labor Day...and a couple of years even later! It would get tricky having enough guards once school started, but we always recruited a few from KU to help fill in some gaps. It can definitely be done, if management is willing to make it work.

WHAT!!! I thought they didn't close the pool until Labor Day weekend!! We were planning on going this weekend! When did the earlier close change???

There was an article about it a few days ago. The city wanted to save money, and attendance drops sharply when school starts so it made sense. The indoor pool is open if you want to go swim.

I won't complain about the city saving money where it can, even if it is a little bit of a bummer.

No one likes providing government the resources it needs to provide services, but when services get cut back, we don't like that, either.
