Seems like yesterday

50 years ago (1964)

A 20-year-old Everett housewife who said she was not “the rocking chair type” claimed the world title yesterday after rocking steadily for 48 hours. Roxie Lee Jones, Rt. 2, broke the record after another Everett housewife claimed to have won it. Rocking for 44 hours was Melba Jean Rae, 22, 1340 Fir. St. Peter Boerage, an Everett furniture store manager, promoted the contest.

Leap Year Day was tomorrow so Gerrilee Marriott carried Cliff Totey’s books at Everett Junior College, and Beth Hartley bought theater tickets for fellow Everett High School student Ken Garth Baker, while Cynthia Elsbree opened the car door for Cascade classmate Mel Monk.

25 years ago (1989)

Lane Sevitch, Valley General administrator, was hopeful that a levy to expand the Monroe hospital would pass. If passed it would provide funds for new construction. The old Spanish-style infirmary would be demolished. It was the county poor farm before becoming Valley General Hospital in 1960.

Herald carriers for January were Rodger Hill, Wesley Kauffman, Danny Myers, Damian Smith, Aaron Guimont, Nathan Mount, Josh O’Neil, Robby Eason, Chris Drake, Rob Wagner, Josh McFalls, Bryant Hamman and James Berryman.
