Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)

Thomas Gish, board chairman for First Federal Savings and Loan Association, presented a $25 check to Dennis Dowen, 19, whose flying tackle halted a man accused of breaking and entering the main office of First Federal last week. Dallas Olson, director and loan officer, looked on approvingly.

Don Laffoon and Tony Abeyta were co-owners of the first IGA store in the Everett area at the Eastmont shopping center. Laffoon operated the grocery department and Aleyta the meat department. Steve Casella was produce manager. The grand opening was taking place today.

25 years ago (1989)

In the North Broadway Car Dealers section, Paul’s on Wheels had an ‘82 Monte Carlo for $2,599. Disco Auto Mart had several ‘83 models for sale. Wood Motor Co. offered an ‘86 Dodge mini van for $7,499. Fletchers carried their own financing. Specialty Autos & Trucks had a ‘78 Plymouth Volare for $995.

They were celebrating a grand opening at Paradise Pets, formerly Puget Park Pets, at 12811 Eighth Ave. W., Everett. The store was offering a free doggy flea dip, and advice on dog and cat food and aquarium and bird products.
