Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)

The sleek 82-foot Coast Guard patrol boat, which had been assigned to duty from Everett, arrived at the Standard Oil Co. dock just south of Scott Paper Co. A crew of nine operated the vessel, which was equipped with the latest in marine rescue gear. Senior Chief Boatswain's Mate Daniel Sands was the captain.

Jeffrey L. Griffiths, son of Mr. and Mrs. Archie J. Griffiths of Rt. 2, Marysville, was named a winner of a scholarship by the Great Northern Railway. He ranked second in his class of 163 at Marysville High School and hoped to obtain an engineering degree at the University of Washington.

25 years ago (1988)

In conjunction with Washington State's Centennial Celebration, Snohomish County and The Herald invited participation in designing an official Snohomish County flag. The winner would receive a $500 award. The deadline was May 31.

Herald carriers for the month were Jason Stansbury, Chrissy Little, Virginia Bader, Jason Sohn, Jamie Toelle and Zack Thornton, Everett; Charles Jackson, Marysville; Sean Lowry, Stanwood; Lanie Hundley, Snohomish; Brandon Loucks, Lynnwood; Patty Bickle, Edmonds; Doug Brazee, Mountlake Terrace, and Chris Belzer, Mill Creek.
