Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)
City commissioners today ordered improvement of Colby Avenue from 41st to 52nd streets. The project called for widening the street to a 48-foot width and installing sidewalks on both sides. City engineer Rodney Colvin said work would begin in October.

Marysville Jaycees were sponsoring a free pavement dance tomorrow at the Thriftway parking lot. Members of the planning committee were Gary Satterlund, Don Schweiger, Rich Brown, Richard Staats, Dick Hereth and Ernie Thompson.

25 years ago (1988)
Care Medical, at 1301 Hewitt Ave., advertised the Pacer, a motorized cart for personal mobility. It had rugged outdoor construction and design, and gave the rider a comfortable shock-absorbing ride. Care Medical offered home demonstrations.

The City Council in Marysville approved some more street name changes to help avoid confusion. Grove Street was the official name of the east-west road from Ash Avenue to the east city limits. Alder Avenue remained Alder south of Grove, but would be called 43rd Avenue NE north of Grove. The road that curved around Jennings Park from 47th Avenue NE up to Grove Street would be known as Armar Road.
