HALFWAY - Cars were lined up around the pool at Martin L. "Marty" Snook Memorial Park Monday afternoon, the last day the pool was open for the summer season, but the cars weren't parked for swimming, they were parked for football.
As the Washington County Junior Football League played in the distance, pool manager Bob Myers, wearing warm clothes under the office's shelter, looked through the mist at the small football players.
"It's more like football weather than it is swimming weather," he said.
But not for weathered swimmer Brittney Mills, who was the only person wading in the pool about 1 p.m. Monday.
"It was a little chilly at first, but when I first came in, it felt better," said Brittney, who would occasionally duck her head under the water while talking.
