Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)

Unloaded Friday at 2732 36th St. was a metal press, after several days of figuring how it could be done. It was for Sound Metals and was to be used in the compressing of metals, including old automobile bodies. The press weighed about 153,000 pounds.

The highest honor in Scouting, that of Eagle Scout, was awarded to Bert Colburn, son of Mr. and Mrs. Bert Colburn, Rt. 5 Everett, in ceremonies of Troop 16, Mukilteo. A sophomore at Cascade High School, Bert was the Senior Patrol Leader for the troop, sponsored by the Rosehill School PTA.

25 years ago (1989)

The Bon Marche Auto Service Centers advertised a computerized engine analysis for $39 and disc brake service for $89. They also advertised computerized wheel alignment. There were Bon centers downtown at California St. and Rockefeller Ave. and at the Everett Mall.

Harrington Chevrolet on Evergreen Way in south Everett announced a factory authorized liquidation sale of its entire new vehicle inventory. They offered good prices, a wide selection and financing. A check for $1,000 could be used toward the purchase price or down payment on any new car in stock.
