Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)
Gertrude Jackson, who was honored last night by fellow teachers on the occasion of her retirement after 43 years in the Everett school system, was surprised by a call from her brother, Sen. Henry M. Jackson, during a dinner at Waldheim's.

Looking over certificates they received after completing a special in-service training program for nurses aides at Colby Manor Nursing Home were Agnes Burke, Marie Green and Anna Owens, who each had worked at Colby Manor for five years.

25 years ago (1989)
U.S. Representative Al Swift of the 2nd Congressional District was working to restore Amtrak rail service between Seattle and Vancouver with stops in Everett, Mount Vernon and Bellingham. He cited as needs increased air traffic at the Sea-Tac and Bellingham airports and the new Alaska ferry terminal in Bellingham.

The Everett Mountaineers' dream of restoring a piece of Snohomish County's past got a big boost when three U.S. Army Reserve helicopters ferried about 15,000 pounds of construction materials and equipment to the top of mile-high Mount Pilchuck. They planned to restore the aging fire lookout at the summit.
