Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)

One of Everett’s first and more popular taverns following the repeal of Prohibition re-opened after a closure of several weeks. William Pushkarenko had taken over the Cabin Tavern at 2814 Rucker Ave. It was open from 8 a.m. until 2 a.m. daily except for Saturdays, when it closed at midnight.

Gerald Overturf was selected as Jaycee of the Month in December for the Marysville Junior Chamber of Commerce. Overturf was cited for his work as a state director and in handling the Jaycee visitation programs.

25 years ago (1989)

Everett native Dick Thompson was head of the state Department of Social and Health Services for a year. He had been Snohomish’s city attorney, an aide to Everett Mayor Bob Anderson in the mid-1970s, city manager of Puyallup and Gov. Booth Gardner’s first director of community development.

The Lynnwood High School boys basketball team scored a school record of 48 first-half points en route to an 83-79 victory over visiting Bainbridge Island. Five Lynnwood players scored in double digits: Chris Strong, 21 with four 3-point goals; Perry Robertson and Lance Swanson, 14 each; and Bill Robertson and Eric Hansen, 12 each.
