Seems Like Yesterday
Floyd Persson of Everett bowled his way into a national tournament in Washington D.C., after winning a scratch division in Tacoma by one point. Just a week before, the recent Everett High School graduate was playing on the district all-star baseball team. Last fall he was the main running threat in Everett's conference championship team.
Larry Hickey, a 15-year-old Muny caddy and a member of the Port Gardner's Men's Club, took the limelight away form his elders yesterday by hitting a hole-in-one on Muny's No. 5, a distance of 134 yards, using a number eight iron.
25 years ago (1987)
Gilbert Alton, a Lake Stevens resident since 1911, was honored on his 109th birthday at Parkway Nursing Center in Snohomish. Donald Gilbert, of Everett, believed his father was the state's oldest living resident. The elder Gilbert was a former tug operator for the old Rucker Brothers Mill on the lake.
Observing her 100th birthday next week was Carrie Vanassche of Arlington, known as "Granny Bang" to her friends and relatives. She would be honored at a reception at Sisco Heights Hall near Arlington.
