Don't let trouble makers in. Kicking them out after they get in is discrimination. What a bunch of bull.

Great! So glad a synagogue bought this...now they can bring even more religious bigotry to the club.

No look at what happened. Either the troule makers leave or the place shuts down. You can't let people drown at a swim club.

All private swim clubs have a standing rule for children. They must be able to swim. It is not a babysitting service. They also require good social skills as getting along with all persons of the club. If you would think all people are the easiest to get along with, even when you don't or do know them, you are living on another planet. Clubs are clubs and there is a social standard, it doesn't matter if you and I like it or not. Clubs follow their rules, that is what makes it a club. So the eye sore was bought and renewed to a standard of operation and still somebody does not like it. What would you all' like?

Private club-their policies and rules period! Private facilities have the right to choose who they let use their facilities. Don't like it-start your own swim club.

Have you ever been in a Polish club or a Italian club? I don't think so. So the Catholic's are ruining the neighborhoods too.

I wanted funding from the United Negro college fund, guess what? didn't happen! Gee I was surprised, couldn't figure out why though?
