Swimming has health benefits, offers friends ‘a place to have fun’

To the Editor,

We love the pool! Please don’t take this away! My friends and I love to go there and have lots of fun. A lot of my friends do competitive swimming. It’s their life. The medals, trophies, everything it means a lot to them. My brother always plays basketball with me, and I love it! Some people go there to exercise. Did you know that it’s easier on joints? Also, it burns 500 calories every 20 minutes! Also, 65 percent of people in the United States don’t know how to swim! It also reduces 75 percent of stress. This pool means a lot to me. Please don’t take it away from me. Think what you are doing!

  • UAW workers at Kirchhoff Automotive walked off their jobs Tuesday morning at 10 a.m. to protest poor working conditions, along with health and safety issues. Negotiations for a new contract have failed. Several picketers complained Monday of a new work schedule that begins at 4 a.m. for four-day, 10-hour shifts. Picketers also complained about longer hours, insufficient pay and difficulty in finding day care for children at the new starting time. Calls to Kirchhoff for comment Tuesday were not returned.
