LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the Editor:

It is a shame that during the days when Milwaukee temperature and humidity is breaking records for summer weather we have a place like the Calvin C. Moody Pool, located on 22nd and Burleigh Street is vacant and not being used.

This building sets idle, doors are covered with boards, weeds growing around the building and no sign of life exists near or around this beautiful brick building. It just sits idle and closed.

Just think of the impact it could make on this community if it was up and running. The community could cool off and learn to swim, thus helping to keep kids off the streets and assist in helping the youngsters say out of trouble.

We all know when it comes to the children, “an idle mind is the devil’s workshop!”

What a waste and where is the community outrage?

Sincerely,

Lester L. Carter–Carter’s Drug Store
