Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)
Land Title Co., at 5021 Claremont Way since 1961, was moving downtown. Around the first part of July, the firm would move to 1510 Wall St., across the street from the Monte Cristo Hotel. Expanded operations and increased business made larger and more convenient quarters were necessary, according to J. Lee McLeland, manager.

Among the city's newer businesses was Johnson Wholesale Plumbing at 2110 37th St. Jim Harris was manager of the business in space formerly occupied by contractor Paul Odegard.

25 years ago (1989)
Peter Bohlke, a teacher at Snohomish High School, returned after spending almost a year teaching at Shishi Middle School in Chengdu, China, Snohomish High's sister school. Bohlke said he was sick about his Chinese friends and their future after the past several weeks of terror in the country.

Second-graders at Marshall Elementary School in Marysville performed something of a roast for Principal Mel Beauchamp. The retiring principal was honored by teachers and other staff as king-for-a-day at a variety of skits and ceremonies. He had been a principal for more than 20 years in Marysville and an educator for 31 years.
