What they failed to say is this is the second day in a row that they have been closed. Don't care for Ridgeland the guards are mean there and the crowd is more wild. It always has been.

Hey Chauncey, stick it in your ear! Should everyone with kids who dont have family stay away from the pool they pay for? Sorry, but we dont live in the houses are parents left us. We have to work two jobs to pay for our houses and their property taxes.
