SPLISH, SPLASH – Olivia Cooper, 6, of Martin (top, from left) and 7-year-old Gracie Sweat, of Greenfield, take advantage of the relief from the heat offered by the swimming pool on the campus of the University of Tennessee at Martin. The girls were joined by Olivia’s big brother, Caleb, (right) and their mom Angie Cooper. The pool costs $3 per person and is open Tuesday through Friday from 2-6 p.m. and on Saturdays from 1-5 p.m. The pool is indoors, eliminating the need for sunscreen and lifeguards are on hand during public swim hours. Girls must wear suits and boys must wear trunks to swim.
