The City of Everett will hold multiple workshops and tours this spring to promote natural yard care – green gardening practices that make yards easier to maintain and healthier for kids, pets and the environment. The garden lecture series will be held at Legion Hall, 145 Alverson Blvd., from 6- 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 25, and Tuesday, May 2, followed by a rain garden tour on Thursday, May 4.

At the April 25 workshop, Everett Arboretum President Trevor Cameron will take participants on a tour of the Everett Arboretum and Gardens and explore the current renovations happening on site. Attendees will explore best practices for transitioning their landscapes and selecting the best plant for their growing conditions. On Tuesday, May 2, learn about how to attract more pollinators and use wildlife for pest control at the Wildlife-Friendly Gardening lecture.

On May 4, take a walking tour of many of the beautiful local rain gardens in north Everett. Get inspired as you learn more about these unique landscaped gardens that help manage stormwater runoff. The walking tour starts at Washington Oakes at 5:30 p.m.

“We’re excited about these upcoming events,” said Apryl Hynes, Everett public education specialist. “The Green Garden, Green Home program provides simple, effective strategies that benefit homeowners while helping to protect our environment and manage stormwater runoff on their property.”

In addition to the green garden lectures, the City of Everett will continue its popular rain barrel program with a rain barrel sale on Saturday, April 29, or “Make it, Take it” workshop on Tuesday, May 9. At the sale, pick up a ready-made 55-gallon rain barrel for $55, or make your own for $40 (one 55-gallon barrel and necessary parts included). Please RSVP for the workshop at 425-257-8992.

No one was home at the time of the fire and there were no injuries.

Investigators are on scene but so far no word on a cause or damage estimate.

An Everett officer takes one of the suspects up to an ambulance after that hard landing.

It took a while but a K-9 finally caught one of three people who were in a car that ran from a Washington State Patrol Trooper in Everett Thursday night.

The Trooper was following a car with reported stolen license plates just before 8:00 PM. The car was occupied by three people and headed south on Broadway.

The Trooper tried to stop the car and it refused to yield leading the Trooper on a chase in the neighborhood south of the Evergreen Cemetery.

The car took a turn onto 47th street off Colby and ended up going over an embankment, just missing a house.

Troopers found two people inside the car and a third was seen running away from the car down the interurban trail.

A K-9 was called in and after a long search all around the Evergreen Cemetery the man was contacted by the K-9 in some brush and taken into custody.

Everett Police assisted Washington State Patrol with the search and containing the suspects.

Here are some MyEverettNews.com photos of where the car landed.

After medical treatment the suspects are expected to be booked into the Snohomish County Jail by Troopers.
