A senior rally around the pool

To the Editor: 

The curtailment of Berkeley Adult School's 'senior aquatics' because of lack of city funding is curious. My understanding has been that older adult programs are state-funded through school districts. Also curious, is the failure of the Berkeley senior programs director to provide visible advocacy in this matter? 

Likewise, the Commission on Aging, and as demographics clearly show most elders are females, the Commission on Status of Women.
