"This is the city's only pool," the Mayor said, indicating that hour expansion likely will occur if more life guards volunteer.

The A.D. Lewis refurbishing came from a couple of guys with the goal of helping children asking Marathon Oil for assistance with piping and pumps.

Marathon and their vendors  "adopted" the pool contributing parts and labor valued at about $100,000.
