Monday night (Aug. 31st) dozens of residents and concerned citizens held a “Save Our Pool” rally at White Center’s Evergreen Pool, which shutters its doors today (Tues., Sept. 1st) for an unknown length of time as another deal to re-open through Whitewater Aquatics is attempted.

As you may know, Evergreen Pool has been wading though the county’s recent budget crisis, with its funding cut to the point of ceasing operations. Since it is not in the newly-annexed area of southern North Highline, the city of Burien cannot be involved. Therefore it is left in the hands of the county, which has slashed budgets to the point of possibly closing 39 parks, more than a third of which are in the Highline area.

Photographer Michael Brunk was there to capture both visual and audio elements, which he has built into the following “SoundSlideshow”:
