Seems like yesterday

50 Years Ago (1964)

Members of health classes at South Junior High School, Cathy Looysen, Larry Horn, Joe Pereira and Darlene Peterson, showed the efforts of their classes in collection “proofs of purchase” to aid person hospitalized with tuberculosis.

Rosemary Cameron, general chair, Curtis Porterfield, Ed Peterson and Diana Aust were all speakers today in the Youth Sunday observances today at Central Lutheran Church.

25 years ago (1989)

Salvage expert Bob Burns looked over a Silverton power cruiser that sank in its Everett Marina berth. Burns said he wouldn’t be able to bring in his tug to raise the craft until the ice melted. The Port of Everett had asked owners not to try to move their boats to help prevent further ice damage.

Chris Geroux was hot enough to remove his coat as he chipped away ice and snow on a sidewalk at 37th St. and Hoyt Ave. Public works director Clair Olivers said that the cold snap had cost the city $40,000 with overtime paid to crews putting in 12-hour shifts and the 2,400 cubic yards of sand poured on city streets.

By Jack O’Donnell from Herald archives at the Everett Public Library.
