Charleston has 5 free public pools. Now that Huntington has the 1% tax shouldn't Huntington have things for kids to do. Where are the tax dollars going?

Don't take your kids to a public pool. Last week there was a CDC report that every public pool they tested had feces in the water.

You are a very small minded person. I hope you don't have any children because we certainly don't need anymore people like you in Huntington. People like you are the reason Huntington is the way it is.

Because I think public pools are dirty toilet bowls? You can let your kid literally drink crap if you want I'm not stopping you.

I would love to see the kids have a public pool. However I don't see that happened. I don't have children but they need a pool. There isn't even one to pay to play. That is shame.

I am a mother and grandmother I would love to see the city have a pool as most cities do 98% do. We do have a health deptartment they inspect pools and they inspect restaurants. I love children would like to see them laugh and play outside. Not sit inside and play video games all day.

I am glad to see that people agree with me. I would like to see more people in Huntington want activities and facilities. After all we pay taxes to live in Huntington we deserve something good for our money good wholesome family fun. We don't need our kids growing up on the streets screaming I'm bored...

I used to love public pools...as a kid. Tried one again as an adult and it was terrible. Impossible to relax in or out of the water with all the screaming brats and ball games.

I live in Ohio and would love it if Htg could provide me with more entertainment options without me having to pay for it. Thanks guys! I'll be going to the movies and Pullman tonight, but would love to get in a few laps before I go. Love me some Htg. And think, I don't even have to live in your crime ridden town or go to your pathetic schools ... except Marshall, I like going to the games. I love this arrangement. You guys rock!

That'd be an awesome idea if it was white only. I don't want my kids getting in water where black people have rinsed their grease off.

You're by far the biggest idiot. That was completely unnecessary! White people are just as dirty and greasy. Look at all the wanna be black people and see how greasy their hair is!! Lmfao I see more dirty white people then I do black. I hope a dirty white person wipes all their nasty grease from their unwashed hair on you!

I don't swim or have children so why should my tax dollars go towards your children having a pool. It isn't about parents wanting their children to have a place to swim, it's about parents wanting lifeguards to be free babysitters while the parents are at work this summer. If you want a pool that bad, don't sit back & except tax dollars to pay for it, start a fundraiser and do it yourself.

Please what ever you parents do. Do not send your kids to the boys club on Hal Greer I have seen twice in two weeks the van driver with alcohol and buying alcohol and drinking alcohol in the boys club var at Huntington mart! My kids go there no longer because obviously there is no supervision!
