Six-year-old Matthew Tilden uses his life jacket as a lounge chair while relaxing in a pool outside his home on Cazenovia Lane in Bovina Thursday with his brother, Stanley Tilden, and neighbor Austin Smith. Matthew’s mother, Edna Tilden, said the boys have spent most of their summer days playing in the pool. The weather forecast for the weekend is partly cloudy skies with highs in the 90s.
