Manassas City Public School (MCPS) seniors graduated on June 13th at Jiffy Lube Live, but today June 16th, MCPS says goodbye to all of their students for the summer!

Although, this summer will be different from the years before because MCPS will be participating in the Summer Food Service Program. This means that children will be able to go to one of their local elementary schools to get breakfast and lunch for free. MCPS students will be returning to school in late August.

Enjoy summer vacation, and remember Bull Foot Clinic is here to help you with any foot and ankle injuries to keep you active throughout the summer!

The warm weather feels even greater when you don’t have to worry about the appearance of your feet. Fungus leads to embarrassment, but some treatments can help. Dr. Mahavadi, Dr. Cardinal, and Dr. Arminio have all helped fight fungus for years and are here to help you understand fungus.

Bacterial fungus can infect your toes, usually starting on the skin, also know as athlete’s foot. If left untreated, it can infect the nail bed. This infection can cause your nails to appear thick, discolored, brittle, or black. Fungus grows in dark, moist, warm areas such as shoes; you can get fungus by being barefoot in common areas. In order to prevent fungus, our doctors recommend patients to keep their feet clean and dry daily and change their socks and shoes everyday.

At the clinic, our doctors offer three different treatment options for fungus. One option is an oral prescription, in which a blood test is needed. Another option are topicals, which are medications applied on the toes like a nail polish. Lastly, there is the laser treatment option, called HyperBlue Plus. This option is a 10 minute painless treatment that requires no blood test.

If you are sick of having fungus, come to the office today to have healthier toenails by the end of the season!

 

Imagine walking a 62 mile hike! On April 30th, the Sierra Club hosted their One Day Annual 62 mile hike which took place from Thompson Boat Center all the way to Harper’s Valley, West Virginia. This hiker in the picture above took 20 hours and 20 minutes to complete this amazing hike.

What will you accomplish today?

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo by eating traditional Mexican dishes at these local restaurants!

Zandra’s Taqueria: a restaurant located in Old Town Manassas. Inside they have a rustic bar, and outside they have colorful picnic tables that you can choose to sit from. As for the food they offer a variety of different tacos options such as shrimp, BBQ chicken, carne asada, and more! On Cinco de Mayo Zandra’s will be celebrating by having live music and raffles. If you choose to go here make sure to get nachos and a side of skillet queso!

Guapo’s Rotisserie Chicken & Tex Mex Grill: Guapo’s is excellent for lunch, and they have combo meals so that you just don’t have to settle for one thing. Their chicken is a must try, and their rice is excellent, but they have other options such as quesadillas and pupusas!

El Rey Tolteca: this restaurant has a nice colorful atmosphere that is perfect to get in the Cinco de Mayo mood, and their dishes are big enough to hold up to four different foods. They have enchiladas, burritos, and so much more!

Have fun celebrating Cinco de Mayo, and be safe!

They marched in uniforms of many colors with boots worn for battle. The First Battle of Manassas, July 21, 1861 was a show to naïve spectators but a bloody war for the Union and Confederate troops.  It was confusion with the south wearing over 300 different styles of uniforms.  Many soldiers wore their hats as tri-corns invoking the Revolutionary spirit of ’76. The regulation uniform was not popular in this battle.

During the anniversary of the Civil War event, reenactors explained how soldiers during the Civil War nailed horseshoes to the bottom of their boots  to make them last longer. Shoes were a priority and were often stolen from the dead to keep marching.

David Detzer, Donnybrook: The Battle of Bull Run, 1861  states that Judith Carter Henry, an 85-year-old widow and invalid, who was unable to leave her bedroom in the Henry House suffered a foot injury from artillery fire. A shell that crashed through the bedroom wall tore off one of the widow’s feet. She died later that day from multiple injuries.

A year later, Second Battle of Manassas would have troops with more distinct gray uniforms but with inadequate footwear due to the lack of money to replace them.

 

 

 

 

For this edition of Footprints, we wanted to feature some yearbook photos of Dr. Moien.
Not only was he active in sports, but he was a member of the Cadet Corps and the Senior Class President.  According to his senior yearbook, he was “off to college and a medical career.”
