Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)
William Birt stood in the doorway of his Birt’s Red and White Alderwood Food Center. It and other frame buildings on the south side of 196th, reminders of a bygone era in Alderwood Manor, would soon be demolished.

“Time Out For Ginger” was the all-school play at Lake Stevens High School. Players included Gloria Shipton, Sally Smith, Sheila Lyon, Cathie Gillet, Bill Payne, Mike Patrick and Mike Dodelle.

25 years ago (1989)
Four Everett postal stations would stay open late for last-minute tax filers. Open until midnight were the main post office at 3102 Hoyt Ave., the mail-processing center at 8120 Hardeson Road, and the contract post office at Broadway Hardware & Variety. Open until 8 p.m.was the contract office at Jenny’s Hallmark on 128th St.

The action was hair-raising at the Snohomish County Public Works Rodeo at the Monroe Fairgrounds. Training safety officer Joe Trimm used one of the county’s lift trucks to photograph action. Gary Kline of Arlington took a closer look from the window of a front loader.
