Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)

Duane Martina, of Marysville, had built a 280-cubic-inch class “runner” hydroplane. He was on Lake Stevens in anticipation of competing in races in Eastern Washington and British Columbia this summer.

Mike Donovan, son of Mr. and Mrs. Emory Donovan of Monroe, recently was graduated from Monroe High School with a record of 13 years of perfect attendance, high school principal Robert Cole said today. Others with near perfect attendance were Jerry Lorenz, Fred Bosch, Jeanne Zarana and Gayle Countryman.

25 years ago (1989)

Snohomish County was changing from rural to urban, facing traffic congestion on a number of arterials. About 450,000 people lived in the county and another 150,000 were expected by the end of the century. Driving times were increasing dramatically. Among the solutions considered were buses, express-only lanes, carpools and light rail.
