  • Oct 2, 2008 at 1:01PM

NORTH BEND - Larry Rhule thinks it is a shame Si View Pool has to close.
His views are shared by many in the Valley, but as the aquatic facility operator for King County Parks and Recreation, he has an understanding of the bond between public facilities and the communities they serve.

Last Saturday was the final day of swimming at Si View Pool, a facility that has been open since the 1930s. For almost 70 years the building that is home to the pool and community center has hosted generations of activities and events.

That warning became a reality this year when the county, dealing with a more than $50-million budget deficit for next year, announced it would shut down the Si View Community Center by Jan. 1, 2003.
