Ron Savage of Edmonds and Larry Foss of Everett were two Herald Junior Dealers who walked away with the top prize in a recent subscription contest. They also took top honors for the grand prize in construction of their "Weirdo" models for originality and workmanship.

Several Boy Scouts were recognized for advancement in Troop 44, sponsored by the Moose Lodge. They were Jeff Marks, William Westman, Steve Kron, Gary Jones, Rickey Bock and Tim Marks.
