Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)
Retiring at North Junior were Earl Williams, who had been at the school for 34 years, and Hazel Field, who had taught there five years. Principal Bill Osborne told both to have fun. Williams planned to go fishing while Fields would go to Portland where her children and grandchildren lived.

Among the 224 graduates in tonight's commencement exercises at Everett Junior college was Elliot Gilbert, 3416 Colby Ave. The grandfather and Scott Paper millwright had taken all of his college classes at night.

25 years ago (1988)
The Everett School Board hired Dr. Evelyn Freeman as the district's new assistant superintendent of instruction. Freeman, who begin her new duties July 1, was the assistant superintendent of elementary education in the Edmonds School District. She replaced Dr. Robert Whitehead, who resigned to become superintendent of the Franklin Pierce School District.

A familiar local landmark, the smokestack at the Weyerhaeuser Kraft Mill, wouldn't be belching steam into the sky for the next two weeks. Mill Manager William Miller said the facility shut down every year or so to maintenance jobs that couldn't be done during the usual course of business.
