Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)

William Iverson was appointed controller of the Heavy Machinery Division of West Gear Corp. in Everett, according to an announcement by William Caswell, division manager.

At the Sunnycrest Grange meeting members heard Paul Tastad report on the population trend away from the farm and into urban areas. Claude Turner reported a good run of pink salmon. The Turners showed colored slides of their Yellowstone trip. Social hour hosts were Henry and Louise Nilsson and Helen Wahl.

25 years ago (1988)

Theresa Muchoney of Machias was watching over 10 Duroc piglets and their mother in the 4-H swine barn as the Evergreen State Fair opened officially for its 10-day run. Besides the piglets, carnival rides, corn-on-the-cob and country music were in store for visitors.

The Evergreen State Fair would be a little different this year for Herald reporter Ned Carrick, who had covered the event for each of the past 32 years. This year the Fairgrounds Advisory Board voted to dedicate the fair to Carrick in recognition for his long involvement. He was a marshal in the fair’s opening parade today.
