Voting day in May will be coming soon. As you know, the Delphos Council is trying to balance the budget after losing some of the big taxes from closed businesses.
We are urging you to vote for the .25-percent tax increase so Delphos can keep the swimming pool open and for the parks’ upkeep.
All children should learn to swim. It could be a matter of life or death some day. Our Delphos pool is a unique round pool. We have good lifeguards and the water is kept clean. There is also a nice concession stand for people who want to have a snack. People also bring coolers.
Why travel out of town for a vacation when you could have a family afternoon or evening at the pool and save gas?
It would be nice if grandma or grandpa would buy their grandchildren tickets for their birthday or even Christmas or even better, a family ticket so mom and dad could go, too.
There is talk of a war on obesity. Swimming is one of the best exercises there is to get out of the house, away from the TV and have a fun day with your friends at the pool.
We strongly urge you to vote for the tax and support the swimming pool by buying season tickets.
Dr. Burl Morris
