Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)

To his knowledge, Gus Rozell, 90, of 3232 Grand Ave., was the last surviving member of the original Rough Riders under Theodore Roosevelt. The Riders, famous for their charge up San Juan Hill in Cuba during the Spanish-American War in 1898, were organized as cowboys at the Roosevelt ranch in Medora, N.D.

Robert Herman Hilse, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alger Raymond Hilse of 2601 Virginia Ave., enlisted in the Navy in Everett last week. He was flown to San Diego, where he was undergoing nine weeks of recruit training.

25 years ago (1988)

The old Everett theater in downtown has reopened as the Everett Tri with three screens. All shows at all times were 99 cents. Now playing were "Crocodile Dundee" and "Willow," "Coming to America" and "Midnight Run," and "Married to the Mob" and "Caddy Shack II."

Bickford Ford Mercury, on Bickford Ave. between Everett and Snohomish, was having an F-Series truck sale. A new '88 F-150 4x4 sold for $11,998, a savings of $3,760. Bickford advertised that they were the West's oldest Ford-Mercury dealers.
