Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1962)
Sharing the front page with a story about the untimely death of Marilyn Monroe was a photo of a $200,000 fire that damaged the Hogland Transfer Company's warehouse on the 3200 block of Paine St. It showed a huge fire ball gushing out of black smoke.
Work on walkways along the roads leading to Martha Lake School got underway over the weekend. Work parties preparing the ground for surfacing were organized by Mrs. R.B. Quay.
25 years ago (1987)
A rugged, overgrown gulch that once was a popular site for teen beer parties was to be turned into a classy county park with paved pathways, beach access, picnic shelters and a park ranger. The County Council was turning Lund's Gulch into Meadowdale Beach Park. Council Member Bill Brubaker said that it had been a long time coming.
Associate Floor Crafts at 2115 39th St. was celebrating its first anniversary with 30-percent-off sales. They sold Formica, vinyl, ceramic tile, carpets, appliance, draperies and blinds. Free prizes included a Sharp microwave, Panasonic television, gas grill and carpeting.
