Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)
Checking out the games scheduled at the Longfellow School Annual Carnival were PTA committee members including Principal Sidney Douglas, Joann Lindfors and Barbara Greenleaf. The carnival would be held in the school’s cafeteria and auditorium.

The Church of Truth, 1709 23rd St., was sponsoring its Fellowship Night Sunday. On the program were Al Blackmore at the piano and Bill Dyke with his saxophone. Elmer McKay was the vocal soloist. The youth group would pantomime the Beatles.

25 years ago (1989)
The beautiful American foursquare home belonging to John and Sue Posel at 3316 Grand Ave. was becoming a movie star. Hollywood director David Lynch was using it in his production set in a mythical Northwest logging town called Twin Peaks. Neighbors in the houses on either side, Nina O’Neil and Joyce O’Donnell, were all in favor of the filming.

Willard Scott, of Snohomish, had launched a letter-writing campaign to help the NBC “Today” show’s Willard Scott weather a flap on the show. Scott, a marketing manager, said he and his colleagues at Bayliner Marine Corp. in Arlington came up with the idea to write to NBC on the other Scott’s behalf.
