ANOTHER summer and still no Tropicana. Yesterday three nice young girls came to our house with a petition for us to sign asking for some action on the Tropicana. They want a pool, and so do hundreds of other people. Why is it that we wait and wait and nothing happens? We do not want a car showroom or a hotel there - we just want a pool with a wave machine and flumes. The children would have such fun and would be able to learn to swim which is what every child should have the opportunity to do. It could be a life-saver!HAZEL LEWRY- Cornwallis Avenue, Weston
