Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)

Milton Yates and Lee Ewing, both of Everett, held up the 9- to 11-pound salmon they and their party caught fishing from Rice’s Resort at Sekiu. Yates’ daughter, Janet, and Ewing son, Roddie, helped in the nine fish catch. Flasher and herring fished deep did the work for the party.

Using as their theme, “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness,” three outstanding Stanwood students would be the principal speakers at commencement exercises tomorrow night. They were Walter Anderson, valedictorian; Rebecca Anderson, salutatorian, and Phillip Bloom, class speaker.

25 years ago (1989)

After improvements the Klahowya ferry, built in 1958, was ready to return to the Seattle-Vashon-Southworth run. The vessel spent nearly six months at the Fishermen’s Boat Shop, Everett’s largest boat-repair shop, for repairs, new steel, decor changes, new safety equipment and galley, new steering gears and restoration work.

Snohomish County’s solid waste management division was sponsoring a free household hazardous waste collection at Fire District 11 Headquarters, on S. Meridian in Everett. Here was a chance to get rid of materials such as old antifreeze and leftover paint.
