Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)

George Hornyak, Maurie Wilson, John Kruick, Dean Loper and Roland Dick, D.A. Duryee's insurance staff, were attending a conference in Florida. Minding the office at 2715 Colby Ave. were Beverly Heintz, Genevieve Johnston, Pearl Knowles, Madeline Lughlin, Donna Thomas and Dan Duryee.

Winners of the annual Voice of Democracy essay contest, sponsored by Veterans of Foreign Wars posts, were Cheryl Provazek of Lake Stevens High; Virginia Winn, Meadowdale High; and Mark Zerr, Granite Falls High. Contest chairman Charles Burt would enter their essays in the state competition.

25 years ago (1989)

Getting her kids ready for school, Val Key discovered it had snowed. She said she was from Colorado and was used to snow as she broomed the snow off her car on Beverly Lane. The convergence zone from south Everett to north Seattle was blanketed in four inches of snow.

The Snohomish County Council raised the prospect of a moratorium on new development along much of the Bothell-Everett Highway until a way to pay for widening the congested route was worked out. Such action could block the proposed construction of several commercial and housing projects.
