Mayor to city: Were listening

A front-page photo that made a splash

Please know how grateful I am for Austin Danforths front-page picture worth a thousand words that showed children staying cool in the pool of Charles Houston community center (July 8, 2010).

Two-year-old Jane Bremberg keeps cool in the pool at Charles Houston Recreation Center on Wednesday afternoon, making the best of the days record-breaking heat.
