50 years ago (1962)

Robert E. Klatt, 6012 Evergreen Place, was named to the State Aeronautics Commission. Klatt was appointed by Gov. Albert Rosellini to fill the unexpired term of Robert L. Greenhalgh, Snohomish, who had resigned.

Dr. Roland Hublou, recently discharged from the Navy, opened dental offices in the Medical-Dental Building. Hublou, a graduate of Everett schools, was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Francis Hublou, Lake Goodwin, who both taught in Everett.

25 years ago (1987)

The Washington State Patrol began a safety awareness program on U.S. 2 and Highway 522. Motorists were asked to drive with headlights on as a safety measure, said dispatcher Suzanne Ney of the Everett State Patrol office. She said that black and yellow signs urging headlight use would be posted on the roads.

After 35 years only the name had changed. Walsh Platt Motors was now Dwayne Lane’s. Working there were Brent Lovell, John Engel, Carl Hanson, Mark Herald, Rod Bly, Fran Clarke, Charles Moore, Randy Utt, Doug Lauer, George Carberry, Kris Hausmann, Pam Moore, Earl McMurray, George McDonnell, Tim Martin and Jim Punteney.
