Our Year In Review Of Top 2020 Stories By Month

December 31, 2020


Editor’s Note:Took a look through the archives at the stories that generated heavy interest during the past year among readers of MyEverettNews.com. No surprise that COVID-19 dominated the first half of the year affecting almost every aspect of life in Everett, Washington. In Spring things loosened up with the outdoor Farmers Market in downtown Everett and a large peaceful Black Lives Matter March and Rally to the steps of Everett City Hall. Summer brought a 4-alarm fire to the Everett Waterfront, economic distress for many businesses and smoky skies from fires near and far. Fall brought a vote on zoning and put housing in the spotlight, and an approval to put body cameras on Everett Police patrol officers. As we move into winter, a very bleak budget outlook for the City of Everett. Thank you for reading MyEverettNews.com as we continue into 2021, starting our 11th year bringing you news and current events in Everett, Washington. Leland Dart Editor/Publisher.
