SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
KATHLEEN FERRY, San Clemente
I’ve been swimming at our beautiful aquatic center since it opened. I’ve enjoyed a variety of classes and lap swims on a consistent basis. It’s been a home away from home for me. The staff is wonderful and the lifeguards are excellent!
My concern is that things aren’t what they used to be. The center isn’t running to full capacity. The 50 meter (pool) is unavailable. Hours of operation are being decreased drastically. Classes are being canceled.
I would imagine the livelihood of employees is suffering as well. I hope the City of San Clemente makes it a priority to fix the ongoing problems and restore our beautiful gem.
