Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)

Two of Everett's prominent citizens have died. Lester L. Beard, executive director of Everett Housing Authority and Christ J. Solie, for more than 20 years city building inspector played leading roles in the community's life for many years.

Everett port commissioners tonight agreed to launch the first stage of a $2.5 million project at the 14th Street waterfront area. Modern moorage for pleasure boats and commercial fishing boats would be built. Commissioners also authorized engineer James Reid to draw working plans for the project.

25 years ago (1988)

Boeing Co. employees donated more than 1,500 handmade wooden cars, stuffed toys and dolls to Everett Christmas House. The gifts were fashioned by employees in their off hours for distribution to children.

The Snohomish County Clerk's Office would soon become the first agency of its kind in the state to use a bar coding system, similar to that used in supermarkets, to keep better track of court files. The scanner would save workers the laborious task of entering case names and numbers into the computer manually.
