LETTER: Things you cannot put a price tag on

Things you cannot put a price tag on ... the laughter of children ... the look of pride when a child learns to swim ... the life-saving skill and confidence that comes from a child learning to swim.
I am an employee of Laugh-N-Learn Childcare Center. Every summer for 10 years I have had the privilege of watching the children of LaRue County learn to swim. Children, not just from our daycare, but also Kids Crew, First Friends and The Life Connection. Now it saddens me greatly to know that will be taken away (as the pool will not open this summer).
