  • Relief months in the making

    Area residents are ready for summer splashing in the pool.

    The work that allows the city pools in Elizabethtown and Radcliff to open each summer begins as soon as the previous season ends.

    The Elizabethtown city pool opened in 1962 and requires extra maintenance each season to keep it serviceable, said Jim Connelly, manager of American Legion Park. The pool is located at the park.

    The pool, which holds about 50,000 gallons of water, is left with some water in it during the winter to keep the pool from floating higher in the ground.

    The North Laurel Lady Jaguars’ drive for five almost ran out of gas.
