It must be summer...

...because the lifeguards returned to Madison Park Beach this afternoon to rope the swimming lanes, test the lakeworthiness of the rowboats, wipe down the catbird seat, and put up the off-duty sign.
They begin their official function at the beach as on-duty lifeguards tomorrow, Saturday, June 26. The schedule for this summer is 11 to 7 on weekends and noon to 7 on weekdays.
Although the Parks Department recently undertook numerous cost-cutting measures--including closing wading pools--eliminating the lifeguards at one of Seattle's most popular beaches was simply not one of the options. They will be at Madison Park as usual this summer, doing their jobs through September 6.
