Next month will be the 100th anniversary of the birth of Henry M. Jackson.

To mark the occasion, Herald reporter Jerry Cornfield is gathering stories of those who crossed paths, even briefly, with the Everett native who grew up to become a powerful U.S. senator and one of the most significant political figures in the state’s history.

If you have a funny anecdote or a memorable photo to share, please send Cornfield an email at with your contact information.

If you do not have access to email, call 425-387-5167 or 360-352-8623.

Help select math texts for schools: Parents of students who will be enrolled in one of Everett’s 17 public elementary schools in 2012-13 school year are invited to apply to serve on the Grades K-5 Math Adoption Team.

The team is responsible for evaluating math textbooks and materials and to make a recommendation for the school board to consider.

Textbooks the school board approves will be used starting in September 2014.

For more information, contact Catherine Matthews at or 425-385-4078 by 4 p.m. June 1.
