The Dalles To the editor:
Please vote yes for the pool bond.
The bond proposal for a new pool is an excellent and positive use of our tax dollars (unlike the money we send to Washington, D.C., to pay the salaries for those people in Congress).
The current pool has provided healthy recreation for our kids and grandkids. The pool has also brought carloads of hamburger-eating, gasoline-pumping, general merchandise-buying people into town for swim meets and events. However, the current pool is falling apart. It was built in 1938 and needs to be replaced.
A pool has been an important part of this community for 75 years. The new pool will provide a safe, healthy place for our community to play, exercise and meet together. Please vote yes for this fun and valuable asset for our community.
