Staff, deputies' help was exemplary

  • Follow Letters

While my children and I were finishing up an Augusta Swim League sponsored swim meet at the Augusta Aquatic Center on Nov. 22, I accidently locked my keys in our car. You might recall it was raining and cold, and getting dark at about 5 p.m.

The very kind staff at the Aquatic Center went above and beyond the call of duty by walking with me to a deputy sheriff outside monitoring the parked cars. The deputy called her supervisor, and another deputy was at the facility to assist me within 20 minutes. What could have been a disastrous ending to a weekend of great swimming was graciously and quickly resolved by their hospitality, and we were on our way home.

"Thank you" seems inadequate. I could not have been more pleased. The city of Augusta should be very proud.

Debbie Kosater, Macon

Well, we know one thing for sure, ol' Debbie ain't U know what 'cause her contact could have turned out totally different. And who funds that Aquatic center because something about the operations of that thing is troubling, especially when everyone knows the history of unequal facilities. Excuses, excuses, excuses, but what about the truth..
