The H.D. Buehler Memorial Pool at Tamaqua Bungalow Park will reopen Sunday

The Tamaqua public works director has indicated that the H.D. Buehler Memorial Pool at Tamaqua Bungalow Park will reopen to the public Sunday, according to an update released Friday morning by Tamaqua Councilman Justin Startzel.

The pool has been closed since Tuesday when a wave of destructive storms brought 4.1 inches of rain, inundating the recreation area and filling the park's two pools with an estimated 400,000 gallons of muddy water, stones and debris.

When I was a kid, I loved Walt Disney. I loved his television shows like "Disneyland," "Walt Disney Presents" and "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color."

I was a huge fan of all his cartoons and characters.

When I learned about Disneyland in California, it was a dream of mine to someday go there. I especially wanted to visit Tomorrowland … a vision of the future as far into 1986. I could see his vision of a world with buildings that looked like spaceships and futuristic trains that ran in the sky. Oh, what a world it would be!
