Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)
Al Orsland's H&L Sports saluted the Everett Orioles, 1963 champions in six states and one province. Otto Smith coached the team, whose members were Wally Leto, Gary Lukens, Larry Showland, Paul Taylor, Dale Ford, Sandy Ingersole, George Coleman, Rich Cook, Gary Strom, John Olerud, Kirk Chapman, Floyd Persson, Gordy Prentice, Bob Fry and Jim Langus.

Dr. Hal Kloes, principal of the new Meadowdale High School, and junior Sharon Still met about school amid boxes and packing crates. The $2 million school was expected to be in full operation by this time next week.

25 years ago (1988)
It was hard to say who the first day of school at Jefferson Elementary was more traumatic for, Lars-Erik, 5, or his mom, Margaret Tangen. She asked him if it was all right to leave and he said it was OK if she stood out in the hall. She planted a kiss on him in Jean Sullivan's kindergarten class.

Tomorrow was the grand opening of Lanus Riverfront Park. The public was invited to attend opening festivities at Everett's newest park, located south of Dagmar's Landing located on 96 acres of upland and tideland along the Snohomish River.
