The TNR program enlists the
help of willing Carthage citizens in catching
feral cats that are then neutered, vaccinated
against rabies, ear clipped and returned to their
colony in the wild. Similar actions in other
cities have helped stabilize the feral
population, reduce incidence of disease and limit
the number of cats killed in shelters.
Members of Spare Cat Rescue
addressed the City Councils public safety
committee last week on the issue of several
amendments necessary to fully legalize the TNR
program. As ofnow, Section 4:22 limits the number
ofdogs and cats Carthage resident may own. Such
rules would need to be amended for those wishing
to assist in managing a feral colony.

Indoor Pool Reeks of Chlorine
parents moved into a condominium complex for
retirees that has an indoor pool. The pool just
reeks of chlorine all the time, and I dont
think its healthy. What can I say to the
condo management to get them to reduce the amount
of chlorine in the pool? I worry about my
dads breathing. -- Larry L., Omaha
them basically what youve told me. The
management may try to reassure you that the
levels of chlorine are safe or that the odor of
chlorine is to be expected in an indoor
environment. And they may be correct -- a mild
chlorine odor is not unexpected around a heated
pool in an enclosed area.
the odor of chlorine is irritating or
overpowering, the manager may want to check with
the maintenance crew to make sure their pool
maintenance procedures are effective. Indoor
pools need extra attention, especially pools used
by many people. The pH balance needs to be
monitored and quickly correctly. The pool area
needs to be adequately vented so that gases
emitted during the chlorination process exit
quickly and fresh air comes in.
procedures may need to be reviewed, along with
maintenance, if an acrid smell or cloudy water is
noticed. Swimmers should rinse off before
climbing into the pool; the condo association can
remind residents of this.
communicate your concerns to management, and
encourage your parents to communicate the problem
at their next condo association meeting (or do so
by proxy if legally allowed). Swimming is
supposed to be an enjoyable experience, not an
hour of eye-watering misery.
TIP: Achieving pH balance is critical to pool
health. High pH slows chlorine/sanitizer
activity, while low pH speeds chlorine activity
but may lead to strong chlorine odor and an acid
feel to the water
