Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)

Joe Coffman, agricultural instructor at Sultan High School, delivered a check to four county youths who were off to Kansas City, Mo. for the annual Future Farmers of America convention. They were Bill Bilbruck, Sultan; Ray Crabbs, Snohomish; Jim Spencer, Marysville, and Frank Albert, Stanwood.

John Albaugh, art teacher at Meadowdale Junior High School, had provided photographs of nature in a textbook recently published. Albaugh was using the text in his classes and reported amazing results loosening up students in class.

25 years ago (1988)

Jerry Jones, Tulalip canoe builder, was shaping the bottom of what would become a 35 -foot canoe, carved from an old-growth cedar. Next he would begin hollowing out the inside. The canoe would be built using only hand tools. The boat and tools would be displayed in the Tulalips' planned museum.

Chic's Furniture, 7506 Olympic View Dr., Edmonds (Perrinville), had been manufacturing fine furniture for more than 35 years. Custom designer looks of the highest quality were on sale straight from the factory. Right now they were reducing by $100 the price on sofas, loveseats and sleepers.
