COMMUNITY POOLS may be on the verge of extinction in Eastern Ohio....
« Back to Article
Back in the day, local industry was BOOMING and EVERYBODY was working making BIG money!
That coupled with the fact that families were MUCH larger so their kids needed something to do and there was no internet, smart phones, or video games back then so drive inn movie theatres, roller skating rinks, and bowling allies filled their entertainment needs
Today, the drive inns are all gone, as are the bowling allies and skating rinks so swimming pools are simply going the same way
What is also VERY telling as to how poorly the progressive liberal governments run things is the St Clairsville memorial park example
Their own handout literature states "Memorial park has NEVER had an operating levy since 1950"
So WHY does it need one NOW!!!!!!
The answer is simple, the liberals don't know how to turn a profit!!!
The people are paying RECORD tax levels as it is and these clowns now want even MORE to prop up a pool and park that has no business plan!!!

It is the option of each community as to the future fate of their swimming pools. You must pay to play or swim in this situation !! Time will tell.........
