Seems like yesterday

50 years ago (1957)

Those with television reception problems could contact T.V. Cable Inc. at 2507 Broadway and eliminate their problems. The service included KOMO, Seattle, Channel 4; KING, Seattle, Channel 5; KTNT, Tacoma, Channel 11; KVOS, Bellingham, Channel 12; and KTVW, Tacoma, Channel 13. KIRO, Seattle, Channel 7, was coming soon.

Lynnwood was booming. The Lynnwood Branch of the First National Bank of Everett was opening Friday, Nov. 16, 1957. The Herald was moving to a new office for south county. Allan May and Arthur Shoot would service the area.

The first full-color promotional brochure produced in Everett in recent memory won first place in a statewide competition. Dottie Piasecki of the Chamber of Commerce said $15,000 was allocated for production. Bernie Webber designed the layout, Kinch and Associates did the photography, and K&H Printers and Lithographers handled the printing.

Some good luck came to area residents. Four locals won big in the new state lottery. The winners were Roy Grennan, who bought his ticket at the Safeway on 112th Street SE in south Everett; Olga Nerland, who bought her ticket at Thrifty Foods in Arlington; Larry Ranes, who bought his at the Buzz-Inn Tavern; and Scott Mangis, who got his at Munson’s Market in Bellevue.
