There is a huge selection of discs to select from to find the perfect fit for your hand.

For more than two decades there has been a 9-hole Disc Golf Course on the west side of Silver Lake in Everett, Washington, just south of the playground. It’s called the Silver Lake Excalibur Disc Golf Course and is maintained by the Everett Parks and Facilities Department.

On Friday June 2nd, a new store to support Disc Golf will open about a block away from that course. This weekend I had a chance to talk with Micheal Carter, who along with his wife Amanda, is opening Easy 3 Disc Golf at a space within the Chevron Station at 16th SE and 112th SE across from Silver Lake Park.

I asked Micheal about the name Easy 3 Disc Golf.

“When they make a rough shot off the tee you’ll often hear players remark, well an easy three from there,” he explained. “I thought as long as they were saying that on the course it would be a good branding opportunity.”

Micheal first took up disc golf fourteen years ago while living in Arizona.

“I had two buddies, Mikey and Nick, he said. “Mikey was the first person to put a golf disc in my hand and I was hooked.”

Five years ago he and Amanda moved from Arizona to this area to take a position with Sprouts Farmers Markets.

“It didn’t work out like I hoped it would so I began looking into opening my own business,” Micheal told me. “I considered opening a barbecue restaurant but hate to do dishes, love to play disc golf, so my wife encouraged me to pursue this.”

Amanda is even taking a week off of work as they prepare to open the store on Friday June 2nd.

Disc Golf is extremely popular in the Pacific Northwest. While there is only the one course in Everett there are several in Snohomish County including a Disc Golf Resort at the former Kayak Point Golf Course in Stanwood.

It’s a very simple game to play and there are multiple styles,” Micheal explained. “Technique matters as you work to get your disc into the basket in the fewest throws possible.”

Easy 3 Disc Golf will be open seven days a week from 9 AM – 6 PM. Their address is 1515 112th SE Everett, Washington. You can learn more on their Instagram Page here or on their Facebook Page.

Micheal says during the Grand Opening on June 2nd everyone who makes a purchase will get something from his personal collection.

    Officer involved shooting

    Law enforcement officers run to an area near 9th and Pine street in Everett, WA on Friday May 19th.

    Got an update via social media from the Public Information Officer for the KING County Independent Force Investigation Team who is looking into the shooting last Friday involving multiple officers from police agencies in and around Everett, WA.

    Because of the number of local agencies involved the team from King County was brought in and the local agencies have been excluded from the investigation.

    The man who reportedly shot at officers and was later shot and killed in an exchange of gunfire is a 34-year-old man and not 24 as previously reported.

    His identity along with cause and manner of death will be release by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.

    Three law enforcement officers remain on administrative leave. They are a Sergeant from Everett Police, a Sergeant from Lynnwood Police and a Deputy with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s office.

    Investigators have talked with multiple witnesses and are still reviewing evidence from four different scenes.

    Another update is expected from the King County IFIT team next Friday.

    Comments Off on Snohomish County Health Issues “Hepatitis A” Advisory For Patrons Of Everett Fast Food Restaurant

    Snohomish County Health Issues “Hepatitis A” Advisory For Patrons Of Everett Fast Food Restaurant

    Snohomish County Health Department

    Click to visit the Snohomish County Health Department website. received the following bulletin from the Snohomish County Health Department Thursday afternoon:




    SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. – The Snohomish County Health Department has identified a case of hepatitis A that occurred in a food worker who worked at two Taco Bell locations: 2727 Broadway in Everett and 303 91st Ave NE in Lake Stevens

    Anyone who ate food from the Everett location on May 22 or 23 or from the Lake Stevens location on May 23 should take the following actions:

    • Check if they are vaccinated against or immune to hepatitis A. People who are vaccinated or immune do not need to take any further action as they would be considered protected against this exposure. People can check their vaccination records by contacting their healthcare provider, using the Washington Immunization Information System at or, if available, referring to their copy of their immunization record. People who have previously been infected with hepatitis A also may be immune. If they are not sure, they should check with their healthcare provider.
    • Individuals who are not vaccinated, immune, or are unsure of their status should:
      • Contact their healthcare provider or contact the Snohomish County Health Department at 425-339-3503 (then press 1) for guidance and potential post-exposure prophylaxis to prevent illness. Post-exposure prophylaxis involves receiving the hep A vaccine or immune globulin (IG), which can provide immediate and lasting protection when given within two weeks of exposure to the hepatitis A virus. Hepatitis A vaccine is available from multiple healthcare providers or pharmacies in the county. Anyone who was exposed and is having trouble finding a vaccine provider, or who is uninsured or underinsured, should contact the Health Department.
      • Monitor for any symptoms of illness. Stay home and do not prepare or serve food for others if you have symptoms. It takes between 15 and 50 days to become symptomatic after being exposed. Early signs of hepatitis A include:
        • fever
        • fatigue
        • loss of appetite
        • nausea
        • vomiting
        • diarrhea
        • dark urine and jaundice (yellowing of eyes or skin)
      • If you develop any of these symptoms, be especially thorough in handwashing after using the restroom and before preparing or handling food to avoid potentially spreading the illness further. Wash hands with soap and running water. Be sure to lather and scrub all surfaces including backs of the hands, wrists, between fingers, and under fingernails.

    The confirmed case appears to have been infected during international travel. The Snohomish County Health Department is working with the business to identify other workers who were potentially exposed and connect them with prevention information as well as resources for vaccination and post-exposure prophylaxis, as needed.


    The hepatitis A virus lives in the poop or blood of someone who is infected and typically spreads through fecal contamination. The virus may be spread from person to person through close contact or through food handling. Consistent, thorough handwashing is essential to prevent spread through food handling.

    The illness varies in severity, with mild cases lasting two weeks or less. More severe cases can last six weeks or longer. Some individuals, especially children, may not develop jaundice and may have an illness so mild that it can go unnoticed. However, even mildly ill people can still be highly infectious. Anyone with symptoms of hepatitis A and potential exposure who is not vaccinated or immune should consult a healthcare provider right away even if symptoms are mild.
