Lifeguard shortage: Duncan pool closing early

DUNCAN, Okla._Summer fun in Duncan is getting cut short this year.

The pool at Fuqua Park, which is on Highway 81, will close Saturday. Parks and Cemetery superintendent Dana Stanley says a shortage of lifeguards is prompting the city to close up shop earlier than expected. Originally, he planned on closing the pool the third week of August. He says they've had to shut the pool down because no lifeguards were available the last two Fridays.

He says many are college students are making their way back to college campuses to start the fall semester.
