Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)
Officials of Marysville Shake Co. today placed at approximately $350,000, the loss suffered through a fire yesterday afternoon that destroyed two thirds of the plant on the shore of Ebey Slough. A plume of smoke from the blaze could be seen for miles around.

Chet Whittaker and Duane Burke of South County had purchased the Twin City Lanes from Trygve Lien, who built the bowling layout in July 1959. Curt Peterson of Lynnwood, assistant manager of Lynnwood bowl, was placed in charge by the new owners.

25 years ago (1988)
The views in old town Mukilteo either got clearer or more obstructed, depending on one's point of view. The Mukilteo City Council threw out a proposed ordinance that would have lowered building heights in view-sensitive Old Town, an area below the Mukilteo Speedway overlooking Puget Sound.

The Interurban Recreational Trail was becoming a reality after nearly 20 years of discussion. The 13-mile trail would go north from Mountlake Terrace near Lake Ballinger, to the Lynnwood park-and-ride lot, cross the freeway near the I-5 junction with I-405, and continue on to the Beverly Park area of south Everett.
