Esteban Cervantes, 4, of Vancouver wears a life jacket Friday at Klineline Pond. The popular swimming site hasn't had lifeguards since budget cuts in 2009, but beginning this week, about a dozen life jackets in a full range of sizes are available to borrow. Esteban's mother, Elizabeth Cervantes, said her son isn't the best swimmer, so she feels better when he wears the vest.
