Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)

J.E. Barnhart, Star Route, Granite Falls, obtained signatures of more than 200 residents on petitions to the U.S. Corps of Engineers to correct a problem on the South Fork of the Stillaguamish River. The river had changed channel and was cutting within 50 feet of the Mountain Loop Highway at Robe. It was feared that the highway might be severed cutting off access to the valley.

Frances Phinney wrote an article about the Dr. Leeon Aller home in Snohomish. Its exterior was of light Texas shell stone held with charcoal colored mortar, blending the decorative stone with the remainder of the grey cedar siding. The swimming pool could be accessed from the living room, dining room or master bedroom.

25 years ago (1989)

Longtime Herald reporter and Notebook writer Ned Carrick retired recently after 32 years with The Herald. In retirement he joined Allan May, who started with the newspaper two years before Carrick.

Tech. Sgt. Charles S. Potts, a 1973 graduate of Marysville High School, recently graduated from an Air Force academy for major command non-commissioned officers. He was a weather technician with the 28th Weather Squadron in England.
