The Somerset city council has reportedly decided to close the YMCA pool rather than enforcing rules requiring swimmers to cover up at the pool to avoid offending Muslims.

According to sources, the Somerset common council removed the ordinance guidelines after considering barring non-Muslims (Christians) if they refused to comply with the dress code beginning Memorial Day of this year.

Reportedly, had the ordinance passed it would have required male costumes to cover the body from the navel to the knee and females to be covered from the neck to the ankles and wrists.

I've seen other people get upset at another language besides english being on a product they buy and they get upset. I'll never understand why. Does seeing a foreign language offend you so much?

The Somerset City Council would be better off to sell the signed loan agreement and throw in the mayor as a bonus to the muslims and make a profit. At least something good would come out of the deal. lol

Why the picture of the new Judicial Center? Neither the mayor's office nor county government will be housed in the JC.

I remember years ago, an uncle of mine got a hold of some pretty bad hooch. I also seem to remember him some bizarre thinking that day, lol.

You sure you're OK there MMX? I don't intend to be rude, but your post IS pretty far "out there"....

The pool is not opening because:
1:( it needs expensive repairs
2:(They can not charge enough to cover the cost.

The water park has put a real damper on the pool.
