Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)

The Paine Field Gun Club was aiming to win the perpetual Everett Herald trophy for the sixth year in a row. Right now they had a three-target lead. The other teams were in this order: Tacoma-Olympia, Snohomish, Bremerton, Mount Vernon, Tacoma Sportsmen, Renton and Redmond.

Mr. and Mrs. Don Holcomb had taken over ownership of Saum’s Shoe Haus in Monroe, purchasing it from Mr. and Mrs. V.K. Saum. Holcomb, for the past 25 years in the logging business, was to rename the hop Holcomb’s Shoe Haus.

25 years ago (1989)

Tim Cobbs scored 25 points to lead the Everett Community College men’s basketball team to a 80-74 NWAACC victory over Highline Community College in a game played in Des Moines. Glance Chambers and Mark Nelson added 16 and 15 points respectively.

Black smoke billowed skyward but firefighters from Warm Beach, Stanwood and Bryant were in no hurry to put out a blaze at the King Inn on old Highway 99. Their let-it-burn was part of practice drill. The inn, now sporting a homemade sign proclaiming “scrap star wars” was a favorite haunt of truckers in the 1940s and 1950s.
