March 2010[edit]

Wondering how to edit this U.S. City Entry?
The WikiProject U.S. Cities standards might help.

"According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 1.0 square miles (2.7 km²), all of it land. [edit] Demographics

As of the census[7] of 2000, there were 1,382 people, 611 households, and 392 families residing in the city. The population density was 1,343.2 people per square mile (518.1/km²)"

so an area of one square mile, 1382 people in it, working the math we have ?1346.2 people per square mile? 98.148.182.33 (talk) 06:16, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Sitka Spruce in Ferndale[edit]

Recently, an anonymous editor has repeatedly reverted a small comment about the presence of Sitka spruce in Ferndale. I spent some time this morning and have changed the single mention of its presence to the following:

... Local microclimates are varied and support tropical palm trees[1] and Sitka spruce,[2] including a mature Sitka forest in Russ Park,[3][4] and the over 150 feet (46 m) tall spruce lighted every year for Christmas.[5]

I realize it may be unlikely that this anonymous editor will read the discussion page. He or she seems to be someone making mostly personal knowledge edits. No citations have been left for any edit by this IP. I request, however if indeed this person reads this section, to please enter into discussion about the pages before cutting out chunks with no explanation and no citations. Otherwise it begins to look like a pattern of disruptive editing. Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:06, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Points of Interest[edit]

I removed "The 1891 Eastlake-Stick Style Russ-Williams Bank Building (currently the Victorian Inn), corner of Ocean and Main, was designed by noted architect J. Frost, with a millinery store, a haberdashery and the Ferndale Enterprise newspaper on the ground floor, as well as business and professional offices on the upper floors." from the article because it is only one building in the historic district. It might make a nice photo caption. Ellin Beltz (talk) 02:56, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Weather Chart Reverted[edit]

I reverted a massive edit to the weather and climate chart today because while the new chart had much prettier colors, the new weather data was incorrect. The record highs/lows and the rainfall numbers are completely different (highest high is 11 degrees F higher than the record, etc.) than they were before and the source does not back up the new figures. I also see no reason to take out the Ferndale climate chart as that information is not provided visually after the edit. Photo attached for comparison of the chart I removed and the version to which I reverted. Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:21, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

Subsequently I converted the old climate charts to the newer format and colors, but retained the correct data. Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:14, 22 August 2013 (UTC)
