I can sympathize with state Sen. Jake Corman, R-Benner Township, regarding his 40-year-old memories of the Kepler Swimming pool (“Summer staple worth investment,” CDT Oct. 28).
However, I think he has a lot more to worry about than a local swimming pool when he could be fighting to downsize our overburdened state legislature or getting out and supporting members of his own party in the upcoming elections, or perhaps getting a dose of reality that he, too, can be replaced.
I, too, have old memories, but progress cannot be stopped, and if it’s meant to be that this aged pool has outlived its usefulness, then it’s time to either replace it or fill it in and let the local populations find somewhere else to swim.
Many homeowners have their own pools and several are only too glad to have their neighbors over for a dip. There also are several state parks nearby to enjoy.
Corman has picked a very bad time to propose local residents accept another tax.
