  1. Sad, that McDowell can’t just brush away his prejudice and just do what any other person in his position would do and fix the problems! It is that simple. The remark “entitled” tells me all I need to know! And that want go away no matter what or who is trying to get things right. He will be leading the charge! How simple the problem and how sad the outcome each time it is attempted. I could see him dragging it out for many months just to punish the league.

    • I’ve wondered about this. Very important from a safety standpoint, yet no mention of a new hire that I’m aware of; consequently, I doubt it has been done. Same with Health Dept inspection. I have real concerns about pool safety at AAC.

    • They have no other pool. So as much as the run around McDowell gives them, there is no other place large enough for them to swim. Columbia county has indirectly rejected building an aquatics facility, saying it would cost $1 million a year to maintain plus initial construction cost; they would have to raise taxes. Hopefully all of this can get resolved so I can resume swimming because I have a membership at the AAC.
