If anyone has easy access to the book Pella Dutch: The Portrait of a Language and Its Use in One of Iowa's Ethnic Communities, it would be an excellent source to create a section on the Dutch language as spoken by people in Pella. If not, I might purchase a copy for myself later and create the section myself. --18.104.22.168 19:30, 22 December 2005 (UTC)
Speaking as somebody that grew up in Pella, I'd say that the Dutch language is not really spoken as a whole in Pella. You might make the argument that we use a lot of Dutch loanwords, but thats about as far as it goes. 22.214.171.124 09:45, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
Earthpark Indoor Rainforest
It has just been announced that Pella is going to be the location of the Earthpark Indoor Rainforest project, with construction planned to begin next year.
Just visited a friend in Pella, and was given the impression the Earthpark was still just likely , not definite. This was the first week in December 2007. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 11:08, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
We need to implement some sort of quality control with the "famous people" section. What's the litmus test of faminosity? Should there be some sort of citation?
- Having or potentially being eligible for a Wikipedia article is a pretty common standard I believe; see the main Iowa article for some examples. Local celebrities with 15 minutes of fame because of doing something clever/stupid should be worked into other sections (and not redlinked, usually), if there's not enough information to give them their own article. -- nae'blis 16:03, 4 January 2007 (UTC)
I took some pictures in Pella today, so I added a few to the articles. I have a number of others, so if people would like there to be more in the article, I could add some more. However, I think that many more pictures will likely make the article too image heavy. The article would be able to better accomodate more images if more text were added.Dekkanar 02:42, 14 August 2007 (UTC)
