Seems like yesterday

50 years ago (1964)

Looking over plans for the observance of National Credit Week were Robert LaGrandeur, president of the Associated Retail Credit Managers; Don Hewett, Credit Bureau of Snohomish County; Myron Scougale, Seattle-First National Bank and president of Building Industries Credit Association; and Ida Parrish, Credit Women’s Breakfast Club president.

Laurel Stephens, Marysville, was one of many talented skaters who would be taking part in the 1964 Roller Review at Marysville Skate Inn this weekend. More than 100 skaters would be performing in the colorful two-hour show.

25 years ago (1989)

Sheldon was fighting a battle on his Homeacres Road farm that was being fought by others as well all over the county. He was fighting blackberries. Temperatures were expected to dip so that the invasive bushes might not grow so fast.

The Snohomish River Queen, a turn-of-the-century-style riverboat that had carried thousands of sightseers over the past two years, would continue to ply the waters of its namesake river under new ownership. Ed Miller and Gary Krein had agreed to purchase it from Larry McGee and Corey Prentice.
