Pool serves wide variety of residents, deserves support

As a regular swimmer at Fred Endert Pool, I was encouraged to read that the City Council voted unanimously for Rural Human Services and to use Community Development Block Grant funds to help offset the operations cost of Fred Enderts Pool. Our public pool is one of our community’s finest treasures but unfortunately it operates at a loss and struggles to get the financial support it deserves. There is no other public facility in this county that serves such a diverse population by providing exercise and promoting healthy living for so many.

Special day at fairgrounds gives students rare experiences with a menagerie of animals 

Natalia Cardenas could barely see over the rim of the three barrels but if she was intimidated, she didn’t show it. 

The 6-year-old special education student from Bess Maxwell Elementary School grasped her steed and raced pell mell around the makeshift show ring with peers, teachers, fairgrounds staff and Del Norte High School teens cheering her on.
