To the Editor,
Regarding a letter from Walter Jones that appeared in the Amherst Daily News last week: What age group do you represent? Do you swim, and did you ever use the YMCA pool?
This area has a large percentage of senior citizens, who do not need an Olympic-size pool.
Most no longer play volleyball, basketball or badminton, but we can work out and swim in the pool.
We have been living here and paid taxes for a very long time. I have been working out and swimming five days a week, since the Y opened 20 years ago.
Furthermore, neither the town, county nor the provincial government have a bottomless money pit.
