All pools over 24-inches deep must have a fence and a locking gate

Sumner Newscow report — Spring Time is here and people are setting up their pools for Summer.  Just a reminder from the Building Staff here at the City of Wellington: All pools over 24-inches deep — or that have over 5,000 gallons of water — require a fence at least 5 ft. high with a locking gate.  In addition to the required fencing, the use of pool covers is encouraged.

The pool cannot be within 10 ft. of an overhead power line, and if you run an electrical cord out to the pool for a pump, remember to have a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protector for it. This will reduce the risk of injuries from shock or electrocution.  City S taff hopes you enjoy your pools and have a safe summer.

New and Vintage Spring Market to offer 60 vendors to shop from

by Amber Schmitz, Sumner Newscow — The annual New and Vintage Spring Market will be held on Saturday, May 6 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Memorial Auditorium in Wellington.

The New and Vintage Treasure Markets are held twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring, and feature a mix of handmade, vintage, repurposed and eclectic goods.

In 2015, Tawnya Ybarra of Wellington decided to host her own arts and crafts show. To better accommodate the amount of vendors and shoppers, she eventually had to move her event to Memorial Auditorium.

The market will feature 60 vendors with various types of goods to sell, including jewelry, repurposed items, clothing boutiques, home decor, rustic/vintage items and baby goods.
