Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)

Kate Enger, president of Soroptimist Club, looked over a portfolio of art work completed by Soroptimist scholarship recipient Karen Mork. Mork had attended Everett Junior College and was now a junior at the University of Washington.

Karl Romaneschi Jr. presented a large cake from his bakery to Capt. Shen of the Chinese vessel Haishang, which was in Everett loading logs from Pier One. The occasion was the 77th birthday of President Chiang Kai-Shek, beloved head of Nationalist China.

25 years ago (1988)

The boy athlete of the week was junior running back/linebacker Richie Chambers of Lake Stevens High. Coach Fred Emerson said that Chambers had been improving all season and had had a really good past three weeks. One accomplishment was having four fumble recoveries this season.

Shannon Forsberg, senior freestyle swimmer for Meadowdale High, was the girl athlete of the week. Unbeaten in dual meets over two seasons, she had qualified for the state meet in six events. She also had state qualifying times in the 100-yard freestyle and the 200 freestyle.
