Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)
A house at 2526 Hoyt Ave. was being moved to make way for a larger playground at Immaculate Conception School. It spent about 20 minutes on California Street between Rucker and Grand avenues yesterday while a television cable was raised. The house would end up at 708 32nd St.

The nine-unit Sunset Hill Apartments, 8411 44th Ave. W, Mukilteo, was having a grand opening this weekend. Feature attractions were a Finnish steam bath, recreational room and individual patios and terraces.

25 years ago (1989)
Go-carts took the (short)cake coming out of the turn, tightly packed as they started down the straightaway in the final heat of the annual Marysville Strawberry Festival. More than 600 pounds of strawberries were sliced over the shortcake sold by the festival's booth in Comeford Park, according to festival managing director Cheryl Deckard.

Mother Nature would continue to keep Western Washington residents guessing and reaching for flannel shirts another day or two as summer approached, according to the National Weather Service. Weekend surprises included a minor earthquake west of Bremerton and power outages caused by windstorms.
