Your child’s backpack can be ‘spine safer’: Valley physical therapist weighs in on overloaded knapsacks
Dec 27 2012, 12:41 PM
At their core, backpacks are a good idea. They keep students’ belongings together, protect their lunches from the elements and foster communication between parents and teachers.
But backpacks have drawbacks, especially as children age and bear greater academic loads. More books and equipment add to the weight of a pack and to the burden on a child’s spine.
The latest research shows us that anything beyond 10 percent of a child’s weight places unhealthy stress on the spine. It pushes the head forward and increases the compression of spinal discs. If these issues are not corrected, chronic pain can result, especially in older teenagers.
Underground street woes lead to sealed water main, closed road in Snoqualmie
Dec 27 2012, 12:49 PM
The approaching pickup slowed, halted, then backed straight up. There was no getting past the multiple 'road closed' signs at the corner of Park Avenue and River Street. A patch of gravel and deep cracks in the pavement showed why.
On Wednesday, Dec. 19, problems first started showing up on this corner of the downtown street, which sits on a bank of the Snoqualmie River. Mike Roy, operations manager for the city of Snoqualmie, said an eight-inch water main came apart that day. Public works crews cut the line, which had looped through the neighborhood, and capped its ends. Residents on River and Park are still getting water, but the city will eventually want to reconnect the lines. Looped mains perform better, Roy says.

Police found the intoxicated driver at the Snoqualmie Casino, where security camera footage indicated the man had arrived in a damaged white pickup.
