Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)
Enrollment at Everett Junior College broke two records for the Winter Quarter 1963, according to statistician Gertrude Van Arkel. The unofficial number was 2,175 which was the highest ever, and the highest ever over the Fall Quarter 1962 with 1,983.
Philip Hanson, formerly of Everett and now an actor director with the Ashland, Ore., Shakespeare festival, enjoyed a reunion with Mabel McBain, one of his teachers at North Junior High School who taught him Shakespeare. He was performing at Everett Junior College.
25 years ago (1988)
The start of this new year marked the end of the Edmonds Main Streets Project Inc. The program that sparked remodeling of the downtown and inspired promotions of the Edmonds core drew to a close Dec. 31. Downtown businesses were trying to keep Main Streets' fire lit by continuing low interest loan programs, celebrations and hanging banners.
Furniture Exchange at 1515 Third Avenue, next to the Dutch Bakery in Marysville, was in its final days. For their quitting business sale all prices were slashed with savings from 35 to 75 percent off. No reasonable offer was refused.
By Jack O'Donnell from Herald archives at the Everett Public Library
