Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)

August P. Burger, sophomore counselor at Everett High School, was selected as one of 30 secondary school counselors in the western United States to attend the Advance Guidance and Counseling Training Institute sponsored by the U.S. Office of Education under terms of the National Defense Education Act. The conference would be held at the Portland Continuation Center of the Oregon State System of Higher Education.

25 years ago (1988)

He added that a recent canvass of the neighborhood indicated that 88 percent of its residents opposed the plan.

Snohomish County PUD minibonds were likely to reappear this spring. A PUD minibond sale netted $1.9 million last fall, but utility officials thought they could do better.
