Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)
Bill Vincent and Dave Brandvold were two representatives for the Snohomish County area for Tyee Mortgage Co., according to Stephen C. Saunders, president. Their hiring brought the total number of employees in the Everett office to 20. Vincent previously worked at Everett Abstract and Title and Brandvold had experience with a local mortgage company.

Yesterday, one of Everett’s favorite eating places closed its doors. Burch’s Penguin Café, 2814 Wetmore Ave., offered free coffee for its patrons and then locked the doors. The business had been operation there for 22 years. Another business soon would take over the site.

25 years ago (1989)
Snohomish County PUD recognized D.J. “Red” Eisenman, South County equipment operator, as April 1989 Employee of the Month. During his 34 years of consistent job performance Eisenman had shown dedication, dependability and a “can do” attitude.

Major League baseball began its season this week, no doubt inspiring members of the Edmonds Civic Little League to lace up their spikes. The team sponsored by Nielson Brothers Carpet featured the young arms of John Osgood and Yoon Kim. Their coach was Fred Bucker.
