Drake Springs Pool Ribbon Cutting – Friday 5/22 – 11:30 AM

Theresa Stehly and Cheryl Rath who headed up the petition drive for the outdoor pool will be there, BUT, will not be holding the scissors. Rumor has it, the Chamber of Commerce pooh-pooh that idea, they said that would make it ‘too political’. Because, the COC is never ‘political’. Give me a break.

Bingo film

I’ll probably show up to see the circus first hand. Bring your sunscreen!

Considering Stehly couldn’t utter 10 words in her last campaign without mentioning the outdoor pool fight I’d say they were correct in not letting her get some free exposure/campaign material for her next race.

True. But she also talked about snowgates and repairing the city sidewalks. I think her bigger message with what I agree with her on; Taxpayer money should be spent on infrastructure and essential services first, and hey, if we have money left over we can build indoor pools.

I think it is gonna be quite and interesting ribbon cutting.

I see KELO is once again helping the city spread propaganda;


“But opponents who thought an indoor facility was too extravagant successfully fought for an outdoor pool at the ballot box.”

Huh? Hey Groten, why don’t you call and interview one of the petitioners instead of making bullshit assumptions.

#1- We didn’t need a public indoor pool because there is aproximately 8 other ones in town people can use for a fee (plus you can use their weight rooms).

#2- They didn’t want an indoor pool in that neighborhood

Yes, the city spends money like it is going out of style, but if the petitioners were fighting ‘extravagance’ there would be no pool at all.
