Millions of American children will participate in warm weather sports this year, from softball to soccer and swimming to cycling. No matter what their sport or whether they play competitively or just for fun, they will have one important thing in common: They’ll need their feet to be pain-free if they’re going to play their best and prevent injuries.
“Sports play a significant role in the lives of millions of young athletes,” says Rion Berg DPM, a podiatrist at the Foot and Ankle Center of Lake City and member of the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA). “Parents need to be aware that sports, which require a substantial amount of running, turning, and contact, can translate to injuries. Protecting children’s feet from injuries, and bringing them to a podiatrist when problems occur, can help keep kids in the game and make the sport more enjoyable.”
APMA offers some tips for helping protect children’s feet while playing warm-weather sports:
“Sports-related foot and ankle injuries are on the rise as more children participate actively in sports,” Dr. Berg says. “Parents need to be vigilant to ensure children’s feet remain healthy and safe. And remember—lack of complaint by a child is not a reliable sign that everything is fine. The bones of growing feet are so flexible that they can be twisted and distorted without the child being aware of it.”
Ensuring your child’s feet stay healthy could go a long way—your young athlete could one day be the next LeBron James or Brandi Chastain. If your child participates in strenuous sports, monitor his or her foot health closely. If you suspect a problem, take your child to a podiatrist for evaluation and treatment.

“Private property” signs were recently staked into the ground of a piece of waterfront property that for nearly 80 years was used as public access to the water of Lake Washington. Marks on the ground show where a sign that was announcing improvements planned by the City of Seattle was dragged away.
Lake City Live has been following the controversy and the court’s ruling that gave ownership of the property at the end NE 130th Street to the adjacent property owners. You can see our coverage here and here.
Neighbors advocating to keep the land public have been organizing via a Facebook group. They are asking the City of Seattle to condemn the property so it can be returned to public use. And in a Wednesday report, KIRO/7 said that the effort seems to be gaining traction with City of Seattle leaders.
KIRO/7 visited the site on Wednesday and filed this report. In the video below they try to talk to one of the property owners without success.
An urban farm is planned near Nathan Hale High School. And the first design meeting for the project is being held on December 14th. The public is welcome to attend.

Back in May we reported that DreamGirls at Rick’s trimmed back street trees in front of the business. At the time the pruning seemed severe. It prompted complaints from the community.
They were then required by City of Seattle arborists to replace the trees along Lake City Way that were pruned, because at the time it was thought the trees may not survive the pruning or were damaged. The city determined then that topping of the trees was illegal.
From a KIRO Radio report at the time:
The strip club will have to pay for the city to replace the five trees on SR 522 and restore the area to its former appearance. The city won’t say how much it will cost to remove the damaged trees and replace them with new trees of similar size. “The cost will be ‘substantial.”
But over the summer the previously pruned trees recovered and filled out with new branches and leaves, regaining some of their previous size. They survived just fine and looked healthy.
Now those trees that survived the shears, have been cut down. They have been replaced with much smaller trees. The new trees are shown above. The previously pruned trees below.
