Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1962)
Kathy King, daughter of Mrs. Lenore King, 2011 Virginia Ave., was chosen this year's Everett High School homecoming queen. She would rule over the homecoming game at Memorial Stadium on Oct. 12, along with princesses Karen Mullen, Kathy Tretwold, Cris Smith and Ann Sievers. He escort was student body president Cary Rice.
Wayside Chapel on the Stevens Pass Highway between Monroe and Sultan was to be dedicated on Oct. 12. The miniature church that held six persons was erected by the Monroe Christian Reformed Church. It was a project of the Classis Pacific Home Mission Committee.
25 years ago (1987)
Kim Olseson's 6-2, 6-2 victory over Heide Sylvester in the first singles match and Brooke Burkett's 6-0, 6-1 victory at second singles sparked Everett to the Wesco AAA victory. The Seagulls, 4-3 in the conference and 5-3 overall, won each of the seven matches in straight sets.
Summer just wasn't going to stop. Everettites could count on at least 10 more rainless days. The lack of rain in recent months, while welcome to many, had meant water restrictions, rivers at record lows and farmers planting wheat in dust.
By Jack O'Donnell from Herald archives at the Everett Public Library.
