To the editor:

Why does the community pool close a month before Labor Day? The heat index has been 100-plus the last 10 days. It sure would have been nice to cool off in the pool.

School kids aren’t the only people who use the pool. At the very least, it could be open on the weekends until Labor Day. Cooler climates like Wisconsin keep their pools open until the day after Labor Day. Why not here in hazy, hot and humid country?
