Seems like yesterday

50 years ago (1964)

The clockmaker from Gunnysack Hill asked readers if they would take their child to a doctor who didnít like children. If, not then they should take their clock to a shop that loved clocks. The Clock Shop in the rustic old gas station at 15605 Highway 99 repaired clocks in addition to selling antique and modern clocks.

The state highway department was soon to open bids on 5.7 mile stretch of highway between Arlington and Cicero. The $500,000 project would eliminate many curves on the road.

25 years ago (1989)

More than 90 percent of Everett residents believed the city should promote recycling and more than half would pay $1.50 a month for home pick up of newspapers and cans, a survey showed. It was part of the cityís effort to develop a new garbage management plan, according to city economic development coordinator Mark Wolken.

A lot of rocks were being moved around the Navy homeport site. Construction workers were preparing to a new rock seawall on the Snohomish River side of the base. Small rocks would be put in place first; then large pieces would be positioned to protect the shore from wave action.
