Community pond cleanup set for June 3 prior to free fishing day

Well, another Senior Class has graduated from Weiser High School. CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CLASS OF 2022!  If the seniors that I have been fortunate enough to have contact with are any indication, this is a great group of young adults who will be making Weiser proud as they go about building their lives.  I hope that each of you have wonderful fulfilling lives as you face the inevitable challenges of life with courage and resolve.
 Speaking of graduation, Wayne Wallace from your electrical department would like to remind everyone who was celebrating this weekend to please not release your mylar balloons into the heavens. They don’t seem to get there. Instead, they end up in fields, water ways, and most importantly to Wayne, power lines where they can cause shorts and outages. So, please have fun popping them with a knife, or using the helium to talk funny, or whatever, but please do not take them outside to watch them go out of sight.
 In City news this week, Ken Anderson from the Recreation Department wants to let everyone know that the swimming pool is tentatively set to open on Tuesday, May 31. There were a couple of pipes in the dressing rooms that did not get drained completely last fall and had burst over the winter. Ken and David Loos, the building inspector, are working hard to get the pipes and a few other issues taken care of before the opening so that the pool can be used as soon as possible. Again, the tentative opening date is Tuesday, May 31.
 The swimming pool will be open the first week on the following schedule:
 • 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. – Morning Water Aerobics.
 • 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. – Swim Team.
 • 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. – Open Swimming.
 • Closed after 5 p.m. for Lifeguard Training.
 • Closed for the first Saturday, also for Lifeguard Training.
 After the first week, the schedule will be adjusted to include:
 • 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. – Evening Water Aerobics.
 • 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.– Open Swimming.
 And open Monday through Saturday with the possibility of Sundays depending on demand and the number of life guards.
 If you have any questions regarding the pool, its hours, fees, etc., please call the Recreation Department at 208-414-0301. 
 Hope you have a great summer enjoying Weiser’s swimming pool! Weiser is fortunate to have such a great facility when many other communities our size or larger have had to close due to expenses!  
 Also, the City and Indianhead Fly Fishing members will be having the annual Pond Cleanup on June 3. The clean-up is scheduled each year the week before the annual Idaho Fish and Game Department’s “Free Fishing” day. The pond will be stocked, spruced-up, and ready to go for all of the young fishermen who show up the following week.    
 The clean-up activities will start at 8 a.m. and go until noon when there will be a barbecue for everyone who shows up. From what I understand, Steve Fenske and the kids from Arrow Heart will also be there to help!  
 So, on Friday, June 3 come on out with your gloves, trimmers, and any other appropriate equipment to help with the pond. It is a great time to work with other people and to help make Weiser the great place to live that it is.  
 Well, that’s it for this week. See you at the pond!
