New Topic[edit]

Anybody else feel like beginning the Everett Massacre article? I might try. Xen0phile 17:55, 10 July 2005 (UTC)

Gang violence[edit]

I removed the statement, "Sadly Everett is now large of hub for gang violence in the state of Washington" because it is unsupported by statistics relative to the Puget Sound area. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bigcheesebebbs (talkcontribs) 01:42, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

Crime stats[edit]

Good job on keeping NPOV. :-P Citations really are needed, though. Aep 01:22, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
Feel free to get rid of the stats for now. I swear I came across those stats in a city comparison site, but have been unable to find them. Once I do, I will add the appropriate citation. --Hypergeometric2F1(a,b,c,x) 10:34, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

Major city Status[edit]

What is the Wiki criteria for "major" city categorization? I would say that containing Boeing's largest manufacturing facility, having a population of ~100,000, and being the seat of the state's fastest-growing county would certainly qualify Everett for such status, at least as much as Vancouver or the TriCities. 206.124.145.1 04:12, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

High schools[edit]

Mariner is outside the city limits. Should it be listed as a school in the city? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.112.213.53 (talkcontribs) 04:51, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

Mariner High school is located in south Everett, north of 128th street and Airport road. 71.227.182.13 (talk) 07:49, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Sports teams table[edit]

I think it'd look a lot better, be more intuitive and more compact if the logos and club names were in the header, and the data rows below that. Right now the table layout makes more sense for a computerized database rather than human-readable information. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 69.137.223.153 (talk) 20:12, 8 January 2007 (UTC).

Better logo and or flag?[edit]

If someone has access to these logo can you please upload them here? Thanks. The current one is blury . -- Hdt83 Chat 05:27, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

Winston Alder[edit]

Winston Alder is not a convicted rapist. Neither is he in jail. Any allegations of this sort is harrasment and could be cause for legal charges being pressed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.93.98.41 (talkcontribs) 20:21, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:EverettHawks.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:EverettHawks.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 06:45, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Adding "Famous People"[edit]

I know several famous people from Everett, and was wondering if a section devoted to that should be made. Please share your thoughts below.Thegreatglobetrotter 17:46, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

The science fiction writer David Eddings once called Everett his home. 71.227.182.13 (talk) 07:51, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Everett's sister cities[edit]

I find no evidence that "Kligo,Ireland", purportedly a sister city of Everett, even exists. The US embassy in Dublin [1] web page on sister cities lists neither Everett nor Kligo. The city of Sligo, Ireland, (nearest I can come to it) has Tallahassee, Florida as a sister city. The 87-page Atlas of Ireland published by the Ordinance Survey of Ireland doesn't have a Kligo in its Gazetteer.... So I hafta figure that somewhere this bad penny of information has got sucked into wikipedia and mestastisized throughout all the faux wikis and ad-driven information sources on the internet as gospel truth. So I recommend that "Kligo" be taken off entirely, unless someone can demonstrate there actually is a Kligo. Breffni Whelan 04:55, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

That's a tough one. The source given for that page[2] ought to be reliable, but I agree, I can't find any other reference to a Kligo in Ireland. I've emailed the Lt Governor's office to see if they are aware of a potential error on their site. — Timotab Timothy (not Tim dagnabbit!) 06:53, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

Protection still needed?[edit]

This article has been protected since the end of August. Do we think the protection is still needed? I came here to add some dab links, as I did at SS City of Everett, a recently created article about a ship built in, and named after, this city. I propose that the article get the following dabs:

This article is about the city in Washington state.
   For the whaleback steamship built in 1894, see SS City of Everett.
    For the very first Boeing 747, see City of Everett.

Comments? If there are no comments within a few days about why this still needs protecting, I'll probably remove the protection. ++Lar: t/c 01:35, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

A vandal was hitting Everett High School (Washington) and related articles and has since moved to talk pages. I don't have a problem with unprotecting, per se. But if this starts again, then an abuse report is in order.--chaser - t 03:06, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

Neighborhoods[edit]

i think that i want to do the neighborhoods. since im from everett, i could get pictures. make pages for all the neighborhood and link them so you can click on the name and it brings u to the neighborhood page. seattle has this with that page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by CallOfAndrew (talkcontribs) 19:14, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Before creating such articles, make certain that you have reliable sources about those neighborhoods that can establish their notability to justify their having their own articles.
If you look at the Seattle article, you'll notice that those neighborhoods that do have articles have several reliable sources attached as references to support them. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 19:27, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Speaking of neighborhoods, the images in the article seem awfully heavily focused on downtown. Someone might want to look through some of what I've made available on Commons: I've taken a lot of pictures elsewhere in Everett. - Jmabel | Talk 08:24, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

do you happen to have a picture of hewitt ave thats my favorite area. just not the taco del mar pic of hewitt ave thats already here. or any pics of uss abe lincoln? i can get some pics of Everett but that would be in the summer. any requests? just mostly the north Everett. but Jmabel, people barely know what south Everett looks like, put some of those on here. oh, and i dont really know how to put pictures on here. is there a tutorial for that, if so can u make a link for me. but if there isnt can someone just teach me. tyvm CallMeAndrew (talk) 02:27, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Correction to the size (or ranking) of the Everett Marina[edit]

Please change second-largest to largest

The city of Everett's Marina is no longer the second-largest on the West Coast, but rather the LARGEST, due to recent marina addition. At the port of Everett Website, they confirm this: http://www.portofeverett.com/home/index.asp?page=2


Solidworksguru (talk) 03:03, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

wow, thats pretty awsome, i would edit it for u and put in the reference but someone made Everett protected. thats sucks. Fix? CallMeAndrew (talk) 05:02, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Middle Schools[edit]

I just added the middle schools, improve on it. CallMeAndrew (talk) 04:14, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Please fix the name of Evergreen from "Evergree" under middle schools. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Shaydie (talkcontribs) 18:19, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

"It received the All-America City Award in 2002.[citation needed]"[edit]

I am unable to edit the page but the citation for the statement can be found here: http://www.ncl.org/aac/past_winners/past_winners.html —Preceding unsigned comment added by Karynsig (talkcontribs) 13:48, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

History[edit]

The history section here is pretty meager. From what I understand, the history of Everett is pretty well documented, though I haven't read much of it myself. I'm told that the public library there has a really good set of documents on city history, if there is a Wikipedian living there.

There is almost nothing in the article on economic rise and partial fall as a mill town, evolution of the demographics, how the Boeing plant ended up there, or even about most of the notable historic districts (the name "Rucker" appears only once in the article, and that's for the address of a high school).

I'm (much) more focused on Seattle, but if someone wants to work on this seriously and has any particular areas where they need to find citations for something in particular, do feel free to ask my help. - Jmabel | Talk 06:31, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

I'm sketching out a short article on the Rucker brothers, which I hope to add soon. When I do, I can add a line here to link to it. I do live near Everett, but I'm really only interested in the early history, and that's not what's lacking in the article here. Iglew (talk) 19:49, 25 October 2009 (UTC)
My Rucker Brothers article is up now. When I came here to link to it, I found that it wasn't easy to slip in a reference without rewriting the first few paragraphs of the history section, which I did. One result of that is that it's even more lopsided toward early history than before. Someone needs to fill in with some more post-1900 history. Iglew (talk) 05:41, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Removed apparant vandalism[edit]

I removed a bit from the Arts subsection referring to a supposed arts festival honoring Joe Baucco. There is no mention of such a festival (or even of such an individual) on the city's website, the city's Arts Council's website, or in the archives of the Everett Herald. In addition, the person who added it has only vandalisms as his/her only contributions. So I'm certain this is yet another vandalism. --H-ko (Talk) 18:17, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
