MILWAUKEE -

Forget the thermometer. Public swimming pools open in Milwaukee County this weekend.

Lifeguards in swimming suits and jackets skimmed the pool and fastened down the lifeguard stands at the David Schultz Aquatic Center in Lincoln Park.

Lifeguard Katie Albrecht says that despite weekend temperatures hovering around 60, the children will always come.
