Villages of Van Buren saved from havoc

I saved the Villages of Van Buren County from havoc, and I did it while jogging. Yep. It was my birthday. 73 for me—yippee! Growing old is a privilege. As we did last year for Ginnie on her birthday, we rented a cottage in Bentonsport (Bent-on-sport) and spent a tranquil two days in peace and quiet, fresh air, and the pleasant sound of dropping walnuts. “Is this heaven?

Washington YMCA Ramping Up Plans for New Pool

YMCA of Washington County is diving into efforts to raise funds for a new indoor aquatic center due to recent issues with its current pool. The YMCA Indoor Aquatic Center located on East Main Street was closed from June 23rd until July 27th because of mechanical issues. This was the third closure for the pool since November of 2020 and the longest duration it had been shut down since its last major repair in 2015. YMCA of Washington County CEO Amy Schulte says the shut downs to repair a leak in November and December resulted in the loss of almost 10,000 gallons of water per month. Fortunately since that repair the utility costs have dropped dramatically, “It’s a 97-year-old pool so every time we have an issue that comes up we’re kind of on pins and needles trying to determine if it’s an issue that we can resolve. If the parts are going to be available, what is the cost going to be, especially considering the fact that we’re looking at building a phase two for a new pool. So that at this point is a factor as well.”
