Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)

David Bomar, son of Mr. and Mrs. T.W. Bomar, 2510 Lombard Ave, was awarded a bachelor of arts degree with a major in English from Northwest Nazarene College, Nampa, Idaho. He was student center director, sophomore class chaplain and a member of the dormitory council and Circle K.

Three young men in the area had joined the U.S. Navy. They were Steven D. Hendrix, a June graduate of Marysville High School; Claude T. Townsend, also of Marysville; and Gary J. Griffin of Everett, who was a graduate of Snohomish High School.

25 years ago (1989)

Everett had taken to the streets. Kelly Kempma of Marysville won the Hula-Hoop contest on Colby Avenue, part of Everett’s Salty Sea Days celebration. Leonard Opperud of Everett winced as he got the brush off from barber Paul Chachulski during the weekend sidewalk sale along north Broadway.

The Darrington Bluegrass Festival was attracting record crowds. Bill Monroe, considered the father of bluegrass music, was the headliner who helped pull in the fans. Wayne Hay of Fall City and his group Crabgrass were among the other performers. The festival concluded today.
