Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1962)
Verne Sievers, Snohomish County treasurer, was again a candidate for the office. Born and raised in Snohomish County, he was a graduate of Everett High School and the University of Washington. He, wife Helen and son Kirke lived at 901 Pacific Ave.
Displaying banners they earned while winning third sweepstakes in FFA dairy judging at the Pacific International Livestock Exposition in Portland were Art Betts, Richard Schalo, Cliff Morris, Paul Bilbruck and FFA chapter adviser Joe Coffman. They were from the Sultan chapter in the Portland meet.

25 years ago (1987)
Marion Becker of Marysville wrote a letter to The Herald about the resurfacing of the Ebey Slough Bridge. She noted that there were long lines for those commuting across the flats. Most people were polite and courteous except "Hilda Honda" and "Harry Hotrod" buzzing along and crowding in.
As the sun rose Pat Brock paused to read a delivery list on his route. The Lynnwood man delivered milk and a taste of nostalgia from Lynnwood to Mill Creek, from south Everett to the Lake Union area in Seattle. Brock's day typically started at 3:30 a.m.
By Jack O'Donnell from Herald archives at the Everett Public Library
