After the Lakewood Patch story about two lifeguards who resigned and seven other who were suspended over a party involving alcohol at Foster Pool, comments came pouring in.
The incident was first discovered when the mayor — "unbeknownst to a lot of lifeguards" — showed up to make an announcement regarding the eventually failed fireworks show on July 4.
Aquatics director Matt Demaline was notified. After he dismissed the lifeguards, he found as many as two cases of beer at the pool.
The school district — which oversees the recreation department and the pools — turned the investigation over to its human resources department.
Many readers on Lakewood Patch thought the punishment was too harsh.
Others thought it wasn’t enough.
