Seems Like Yesterday
The one-way street system went into effect late this afternoon with little difficulty according to Safety Commissioner C. Arvid Johnson. Police Chief George Nelson said there was only one minor accident involving a motorist who turned the wrong way. California ran west from Lombard to Rucker, Wall ran east from Rucker to Lombard, Hoyt ran north from 32nd to 26th and Wetmore ran south from 26th to 32nd. (The east-west streets were reversed and the north-sound streets were extended at later dates.)
25 years ago (1988)
Years from now, when Nancy Palmer of Everett recalled her first Boston Marathon, there would be one clear and indelible memory. It would be the constant rain or steep hills, but instead the thousands of people who ran with her and all the spectators urging her on.
Dean Coles, 13, of Everett, learned yesterday that what goes up must come down. In a heroic act he climbed a tree in Clark Park to retrieve a cat. However, he was stuck in the process. Everett firefighters came and rescued Dean from the tree, but left the cat to find its own way to solid ground.
