  • LET'S SWIM! Winnemucca pools help cool down summer
    As the temperatures hover near 100 degrees in the early part of the summer, cool down with a trip to one of the two pools in Winnemucca.
  • LET'S SWIM: Choose an on-trend swimsuit and show off your stylish side
    While many of us aren't worried about being runway-ready when we're at the pool or beach, still fashion plays a part in our lives. The choice women and men make about their swimwear say a lot, and can not only make you stand out poolside, but can make you more comfortable, too. 
  • LET'S SWIM: Keep your suit looking great
    You found the perfect swimsuit! But now you've got to give it the care it needs to last. Otherwise, after a few weeks the bright colors fade, the material is a bit looser around your body, and the fabric forms piles, those tiny ball-shaped pieces of fluff characteristic of an older suit. Where did everything go wrong? How can you make your bathing suit last?
  • LET'S SWIM! Pool Etiquette
    Posted signs admonish Lovelock swimmers not to cuss, spit, snap their towels or double spring off the diving board. Running and pushing are also forbidden at the popular Community Pool which requires patrons to shower before entering. All of these are reasonable rules. But there are no official guidelines about using the restroom before diving in- or making sure that your little ones do. For that we rely on etiquette, common sense and an emerging knowledge of the science involved.
