Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)

Central Christian Church, 2602 Hoyt Ave., had its Christmas program this evening. Members of the Junior Choir, who had a significant part in the presentation were Roxanne MacLeod, Melody Ellington, Jan Pederson, Maribeth Girdler, Christine Cornell, Dan Cornell, David Ryder, Diane Crosby, Susie Tooley and Gary Sanders.

Checking to be sure that everything was "A-OK" was Albert Rodarmel Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Rodarmel, 2505 Madison St. Albert, an eighth grader at Evergreen, had been working on small rockets, studying construction and firing of the missiles.



25 years ago (1988)

Travis Forsell and Nathan Cranston of Everett prepared to cross country ski at Barlow Pass off the Mountain Loop Highway. Clearing skies brought sub-freezing temperatures to parts of the county. Everett and vicinity was a driver's nightmare, but more remote parts of the county were a skier's paradise.

Edmonds was losing its high school but maybe not its name. The Edmonds City Council was writing a letter to Superintendent Brian Benzel asking that when Edmonds and Woodway high schools merged the school carry the Edmonds name.
