A special day
Today is Valentine’s Day. What better excuse to eat chocolate.
Or read the paper.
Reader Carl D. Colburn said that while refurbishing the bathroom of his house built by Harold Sisson in 1947, he found an Everett Daily Herald dated Feb. 14, 1947, under the floor. It was yellowed from age but intact. He snapped a photo and sent it to the newspaper.
Maybe in 72 years this page you are reading will end up somewhere cool.
Lost dog reunited with owners
Turns out, a German shepherd rescued by a sheriff’s deputy was microchipped.
The owners were reunited with their pup at the Everett Animal Shelter, where she is getting treatment. They said the dog ran away in September. The sheriff’s deputy found her running through the woods near Gold Bar over the weekend. He teamed up with some truckers to get her to safety. She’s bathed, eating regularly and expected to make a full recovery, according to an update from the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.
