The Marching Band??[edit]

I'm getting rid of the Marching Band section. Feel free to revert if you're willing to improve it, but as it is it has no place in an encyclopedia. Xcm 20:07, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

  • why not? an encyclopedia tells facts; its not as if the marching band is a fake, or that we're trying to advertise anything. We're just stating facts.

An encyclopedia is not just about "facts" -- entries also must pass a certain "noteworthiness" bar. And as every small town in the world has a marching band (or two, or six), I am removing this gratuitous entry. I am also removing the pointless "shout out" lines from this talk page. --Shannonr 11:35, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

  • That's false, not every small town in the world has a marching band. I use to live in a city with no marching band at all. Besides, I don't know what's wrong with posting information about something - yes, it may not be as significant as others, but it's still farily useful. Many of the places listed under "points of interest" are insignificant, but I dont see anything done about them. Delta[XK] 21:15, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

Education[edit]

I'm going to remove the education section. It's largely unsubstantiated and it feels a bit like promoting the town's image. I know the place well, and believe me, the education isn't as top notch as it proclaims. Delta 14:47, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

Kate Traverso?[edit]

From NA, never heard of her. Most likely one of the local actors or high school drama guild members got a bit carried away. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.232.147.166 (talk) 16:25, 8 May 2008 (UTC)
