Seems Like Yesterday

Everett students attending Western Washington College of Education in Bellingham recently gathered to discuss plans for homecoming. They were Raymond Krebs, Bruce Martina, Joanne Martina, Marydee Ness, Marion Rice, Beverly Onustack, Kenneth Paderson, Joel Carlson, Lyle Bonney, Nadine Schilling and Ruth Ann Britt.

New to Snohomish was the Hereth Thriftway Market. Neighbors wishing the new store well were the Hub Drive-in, O-K Rubber Welders, Olsen Lumber, Props Better Meats, John W. West Associated Oil Distributor and Meadowmoor.

It was time for Mary to move aside for Stephanie. The latter was now the most popular girl’s name just as Jason had supplanted John for the boys. Hot new names were Tanish, Keawane and Shemecca, perhaps inspired by the TV miniseries "Roots." Other popular names were Mathew, Jeremiah, Sarah, Rebecca, Jessica, Amanda and Melinda.

Shoreline Savings’ new branch in Edmonds was built in the 1890s-style of that community. Located at the intersection of Fifth Avenue S. and Walnut Street, the building was Victorian right down to the shingles and turret. The bank was previously located in the turn-of-the-century shopping center Old Milltown. Ken Rose was manager.
