Our View: Leisure Pool should get the nod

-A A +A

In many cases, this newspaper will remain neutral regarding local option issues and elections opting instead to let citizens enliven the debate through guest editorials and letters to the editor.

With regard to the leisure pool issue currently before voters in a mail-in ballot question, the Los Alamos Monitor is going to step from the gray of neutrality onto the black and white of this page.

The leisure pool represents more than just a pool. The project is more than just a lazy man’s way to while away the hours on a hot summer afternoon, or a place for kids to become exorcised of way too much energy.

No doubt, there are those who have expressed concern about the issuance of bonds and the ongoing operating costs for the leisure pool. But at some point, the people of Los Alamos need to wake up and smell the coffee.

Young people are fleeing as quickly as they can grab a high school diploma — off to college, military service, or just to get the heck out of Dodge. The population here is shrinking, and the average age of residents is getting older and grayer.
