Save Chatham's Pool

Save Chatham's Pool
Save Chatham's Pool

Here are several pictures we took in Madison over the weekend when we took our children trick or treating to their businesses.  I couldn't express their sentiment better. 

It's just such a sad shame that a town like Chatham, that has had the resources to pour millions over the years into so many projects, not all necessary or approved of by a majority of our residents, cannot find the resources to expend the mere thousands needed to keep and improve our pool without the arguments for its destruction that have ensued.  It's a pity that I can no longer with good conscience point out our local leaders to my children as the best examples of civic pride, preservation and development, that instead the world still boils down to the power and resources of the "haves" versus the "have nots", that there is no room for anything else besides dollars and cents despite all the eloquent words from the many pool supporters regarding the human elements. 

Enough has been said and it's quite clear where the passions and reasoning of both sides lie.  I hope that if a "No" vote prevails, you who wish it gone have the courage to look all the children in the face and tell them that in your time, when you had the chance, you did the right thing.  I don't think any of you will be able to explain to the satisfaction of a crying child your justification for voting to take it away.

On a warm sunny day, back in 2008, at Southern Boulevard Elementary School stood a very tall man (6.5” to be exact!), soft-spoken, warm and friendly as he was surrounded by a whole group of children running around him (at his knees).

His name was Mike Czech and he was teaching the kids how to play a game on the open court.   I introduced myself to help assist him as a fellow ...
