25 years ago (1987)
County officials said a deal had been reached to purchase Otter Island, the "little jewel" of the Snohomish River delta and home to bald eagles and red hawks. Landowner Jim Rhodes was expected to sign over the deed to the 164-acre pristine parcel today. The County Council would have to approve the $164,350 purchase.
Edmonds residents awoke at about 3:45 this morning to the sound of fire sirens triggered by an emergency generator being used during power outages caused by high winds. About 4,000 county residents were without lights.
