Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)

Al Hascal and Fred Sjoholm, certified public accountants, were greeting friends and business acquaintances in new quarters yesterday. The firm of Hascal & Sjoholm held an open house during in the offices at 2510 Colby Ave. in a new structure erected by Pringles.

Today was the grand opening of King Charley’s in-and-out hamburger stand at the intersection of Highway 1-A (now Highway 9) and John Jump Road. Owners Chuck and Mayme Bowen of Snohomish were giving away a 750-pound steer as a grand prize. There was also free ice cream for everyone and free balloons for the children.

25 years ago (1989)

Jim Postler, owner and operator of Stanwood Feeds, displayed one of the few remaining turkey chicks he had for sale. Weighing just a few ounces, the big-breasted white bird would weigh 20 to 30 pounds by Thanksgiving. When asked if turkeys were smart, Postler responded that they were really dumb.

Kings Table on Broadway in Everett and 196th in Lynnwood had Italian classics every Wednesday that included chicken cacciatore, deep pan lasagna, antipasto salad, minestrone soup, veal cutlet mozzarella, baked fish Italiano, fettuccine Alfredo salad and zucchini parmesan.
