Re "Quiet Waters," Nov. 6. Surprise! Surprise! It's November and no one is using the Hansen Dam so-called "swimming lake," which for the most part is only a huge wading pool. Yes, as could easily have been predicted, it will sit idle for eight months of the year. As to the tiny "boating lake," saying it is a replacement for the old lake is a monumental farce. This project is one of the most flagrant wastes of our tax money we have ever seen. It should be dubbed "Berman's Folly." HOWARD LOCKWOOD Lake View Terrace As a resident of the overlooking community of Kagel Canyon, I have been a frequent visitor at the [Hansen Dam Recreation Area]

SEATTLE - Pike Place Market. The Space Needle. Pioneer Square. Check, check and check. If you've hit these obvious Seattle destinations, you're not a newbie. But maybe you're not an insider either. So, this 21-stop Seattle checklist is for you. It skirts those three attractions and several other popular stops to make more room for Ballard, Capitol Hill, Fremont and the University District - four asset-rich Seattle neighborhoods my family and I explored on a visit last summer.

Swimming pools are a well-known hazard for young children, and fences around in-ground pools are now known as a must-have.  But just because a pool is portable doesn’t mean it’s safe. So-called kiddie pools pose a risk too. These pools -- which include wading pools, inflatable pools and “soft-sided, self-rising pools" -- aren’t the same as traditional above-ground pools or in-ground pools simply because they’re so movable. That playful element belies their danger. A new study finds that 209 children died between 2001 and 2009 from drowning in portable pools -- about one child every five days during the summer months, according to a Reuters article . Almost all of the reported deaths were among children younger than 5 years old. Most of the drownings were in the summer, and about three-fourths of the time the pool was in the child’s own yard.

A family of tigers rescued from starvation and abuse at an Irish farm in December were released Wednesday to their new home--a 10,000-square-foot secured area, complete with a wading pool, within the confines of the Wildlife Waystation. "Today, they left the quarantine area looking fat and sassy and beautiful and healthy, and moved into a wonderful, naturalistic enclosure," said Martine Colette, the facility's founder.
