Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)
Louise Mutschler demonstrated a new hair dryer on Julia Meyer, a resident at Abrahamson Nursing Home. The dryer was a gift to the home. Also on hand were Lillian Abramson, operator of the home, and Elanore Kuhlmann, Marysville, institutional welfare chair of Affiliate 16 National Cosmetologists Association in Everett.

To illustrate the principal of the gyroscope, Jim Kelly, science teacher at Evergreen Junior High School, had Stewart Tolnay tip the spinning wheel as Cheri Wilson watched the stool turn to balance the action. Stewart and Cheri were seventh grade students of Kelly’s.

25 years ago (1989)
Everett City Council President Connie Niva officially announced her candidacy for mayor. Mayor Bill Moore, who had been in the post more than 11 years, had announced that he would not seek re-election. Niva said she was running because she wanted to bring a more cooperative approach to addressing problems challenging the city with growth and the Navy homeport project.

In Lynnwood, City Council members had started pruning a tree-cutting ordinance passed only two weeks ago. The measure was passed so that developers wouldn’t be in such a hurry to cut down trees.
