Volunteer ingenuity helps reopen Hames pool

SITKA, ALASKA The swimming pool at the Hames Athletic and Wellness Center has re-opened.
The pool was closed over most of the winter for repairs to its pump system.
Pool manager Jane Eidler says the city, school district, and Pacific Tower Properties all eventually cooperated to get the pool up and running again. But it was really a couple of talented handy-men – and some outside-the-box thinking – that tackled the problem.
