Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)
Having outgrown their space in the Commerce Building that it had occupied for 50 years, the Kane & Harcus printing firm was moving to a former dairy building at 17th Street and Broadway and changing its name to K & H Printers-Lithographers. Officers were Vernon R. Haines, Donald R. Kane and V.P. "Bud" Haines.
Under construction in Arlington were a new post office and two commercial buildings, one to house the Vic Cox Motor Co. at Third and West streets and the other Meier's Clothing on Olympic Avenue between Third and Fourth streets.
25 years ago (1988)
Everett firefighters battled a storage room fire at the Buzz Inn Steak House at 3615 Broadway that caused an estimated $4,000 damage. Battalion Chief Al Langton said the cause was being investigated. Extensive damage was done to the rear of the building but interior damage was slight.
The city was looking for someone creative who would like to buy a pile of sand. Some 30,000 cubic yards of gritty sand was piled in a small mountain at Scott Paper Company's Riverside Operations plant, and it had to find a new home, said Tom Thetford of the city utilities division.
By Jack O'Donnell from Herald archives at the Everett Public Library.
