Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)
The Everett Bridge Club open pairs event this week was topped by Mr. and Mrs. Ed Sylte in a contest that saw only six pairs surpass average. Second place winners were the O.E. Ronkens; Jerry Dezotell and Don Jacobson were third; the Frank Cadys were fourth; and Bonnie Hjort and Norma Smith placed fifth.

Pretty and practical ski styles would be featured along with a education about necessary equipment at the Everett YMCA Ski School opener next Thursday in the Y auditorium. Also on the free program was a movie and information regarding the ski school. Checking equipment and modeling fashions were JoAnne Burklund and Chuck Williams.

25 years ago (1988)
Connie Wittren of General Hospital Foundation was a committee member for the 1988 Lifeline national conference in Washington, D.C., earlier this month. Lifeline was an emergency response system offered by hospitals, senior housing and health care facilities.

Everett's proposed sewage plant smelled a little sweeter with part of the funding coming from a federal grant. Tom Thetford, an engineer in Everett's public works department, said the city would receive more than $8.8 million from the Environmental Protection Agency.
